Whether you have kept up your skills over the summer or took a break, bowlers are back into the centers for a brand new season.
People have been dusting off their bowling balls, or buying a new one, shining their shoes, catching up with their “bowling friends” and getting back into the routine of heading out to the center. Competitive or recreational, we all meet again in the same place for another great season.
The bowling column is back, and I am looking forward to another great year. Please keep the information coming. Anything that pertains to the sport of bowling is welcome. I will do my best to include it in my column.
The high scores that have previously run in Monday’s paper will be moving to Tuesday.
