TOURNAMENT PROMOTER SANDERS PASSES AWAY

Dick Sanders, who operated the West Coast Senior Tour for 27 years, conducting once-a-month weekend tournaments in California and Nevada, has died. He was 84.

The club, founded to give older bowlers an opportunity to keep their competitive juices flowing, reached its height of popularity during the mid-1990s when it averaged 130 entries per tournament.

The WCST’s entry record was set in 1995 when 237 bowlers took part in a three-day event at Buena Lanes in Ventura, Calif.

All told, Sanders conducted 444 tournaments and paid out more than $4.1 million in prize money — while also creating significant linage revenue for host centers.
