Staten Island’s longest running open bowling event — Jim Elliott’s New Year Singles Classic — will be held next month at Rab’s Country Lanes.
Qualifying in the event’s 47th edition will be held on the weekends of Jan. 7-8 and Jan. 14-15. Squad times each day will be at 1 and 2:30 p.m.
The finals will be contested on Jan. 21 at 1 p.m.
Entry fee is $50. The format consists of bowling three games across six lanes. Handicap is 70 percent of a 220 average. The finals are scratch.
The top two high rollers from each qualifier (16) will be seeded into the finals as well as the next eight high series for a total of 24 finalists.
Long Island kegler Pierce Field won last year’s event.
