Angie Colip: Bowling season is back, and competition already is heating up

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.

The new Anderson USBC Association board has been busy this summer. They have completed the new constitution and by-laws. Congratulations to all of the board members for taking on the job of putting together the new merged association. Lionel Stewart — President, Chris Kendall — Vice President, Ashley Wallace — Second Vice, Shanna Bass — Sgt. At Arms, Sterling Rogers, Tom Ferguson, Margie Chappell, Bill Kendall, Sr. and Connie Miller — two-year members, and Steve Davis, Terry Ellis, Jim Talkington and Chip Bonvillain are your board members. Thank you all for your hard work.

They have also put together a calendar of this year’s upcoming events. Anderson is honored to play host to multiple state events this year.

The month of January brings the Master’s Tournament on the 25 and 26. February has the city tournament with a brand new format. I will have more information as the date gets closer. March through May hosts the Women’s State Tournament. Get these events on your calendar now.

The Alexandria USBC and the Anderson USBC have joined forces with H2M Management/Score 60 Coaching for a coach’s clinic and bowler seminar. On Oct. 13, from 9 a.m. to noon at Norwood Bowl, some of the most knowledgeable in the bowling world will give coaches and bowlers a new perspective on the game.

  • SPT - HB0709 - Weins art Weins aids Eagles' bonding process

    Contrary to popular belief, sometimes numbers do lie. Logan Weins surrendered nine hits and seven runs in the final start of his high school career — a sectional championship loss against Class 2A state champion Wapahani — and nobody argues those figures. But they don't tell the whole story.

  • George Bremer: Pagano's tale has big-screen potential

    I'm picturing Billy Bob Thornton. Or perhaps Stephen Lang, who's probably best known for playing the bad guy in "Avatar." Sorry. I'm getting a little ahead of myself. "Sidelined," the new book by Chuck Pagano and agent/author Bruce A. Tollner reads so much like a treatment for a classic sports movie that you can't help but begin casting the starring role of the Indianapolis Colts head coach in your head.
