The New York State Women's 600 Bowling Club's objective is to unite all women of the NY State USBC who have qualified for club membership by bowling a scratch series of 600 or higher in a sanctioned league or in tournament play.
The New York State Women's 600 Bowling Club was organized on July 15, 1967 in Geneva, NY. The Finger Lakes 600 Club hosted 122 women at this first meeting to kick-off our club.
The club organizes several tournaments for our members to enjoy the comradery and competition of our sport with other women who have achieved the 600 series milestone. These include Regional Tournaments in the fall, a Promotional Tournament that coincides with the New York State USBC Women's Championship Tournament, and an Annual Tournament in the spring. The first tournament was held on June 6 & 7, 1968, at Town and Country Lanes in Geneva, NY and the club has been going strong ever since. The 50th Annual Tournament will be hosted by the Albany Women's 600 Bowling Club on June 9-June 10, 2017, in East Greebush, NY. Our Annual Meeting will be held on Sunday, June 11, 2017.
In addition to the tournaments, the NYSW 600 Bowling Club supports and encourages young female bowlers with our Education Awards. The club provides a scholarship to a graduating high school youth bowler who has applied to an institution of higher education (college, university, vocational or technical) to help them get started with their degree. The club also offers the Frances Lansbury Memorial Award to assist the continuing education of a female student who has already begun their studies. These Education Awards for young female bowlers are funded by our membership.
