YMCA Men's Bowling League
The 60+ year old YMCA Bowling League needs a new church team for the 2017-18 Bowling Season.  Currently there are 15 mostly church based teams, and the league needs a sixteenth team to even out competition.  This is a very fun men's league, and a team from Wasatch Presbyterian Church would make a great addition.  With all the young families now making Wasatch their church home, the YMCA Bowling League would offer a fun outside team competition opportunity for young husbands and fathers.  The YMCA League is a handicap league meaning all participants compete on a level playing field Hey guys, talk among yourselves and field a team of 8 bowlers for this fall.  Note:  5 bowlers bowl each Thursday night at 7pm at Big City Bowl, September to April.  You work out your own schedule with your 8 bowlers to be sure a 5-person team is present to bowl every Thursday night.
