Angie Colip: Thanksgiving brings back memories and another 300 game

Happy Thanksgiving to the bowling community. I hope that all that turkey and pumpkin pie will not hinder your ability to bend those knees at the foul line and throw those strikes.

I’m sure a lot of you are out shopping and getting some great Black Friday deals on bowling equipment for Christmas presents. Just remember a bowling ball usually isn’t a stocking stuffer.

Although, I have been known to throw a bowling accessory or two into a stocking. Can you imagine that?

As another Thanksgiving season is upon us, it is also the anniversary of the passing of “Aunt Kate.”

Kathryn Hotzell was an icon in the local bowling world. She was also greatly respected at the state and national level. I do not know of another individual that dedicated so much of their life to something they were so passionate about.

So I would like to take a moment to acknowledge and thank Kathryn for paving the way for the bowling community.

Without her I would not be writing this column. So thank you Aunt Kate for sharing your passion with all of us. It is hard to believe that is has been 14 years since your passing.

You are still missed and appreciated more than can be expressed.

Another 300 game was thrown this past week, and this time it was a youth bowler who did it.

Dylan Holford, who bowls for the Pendleton Heights team, bowled his perfecto in the Saturday morning Youth Majors League. This was the first 300 for the high school junior who shot a 747 series.

Holford admitted to being a little nervous as he got closer to the 10th frame, but the final three strikes were all solid shots.

As Holford said, “I was lucky to throw 12 strikes in a row. That’s crazy.”
