Kegler’s Korner: Oct. 21
Steve Eckman II rolled an 827 series, including a 300 game in the Andy Tressler Memorial League (Harvest Moon) to lead all the men last week. Cody Daldo matched Eckman’s 300 game in the Monday Night Classic League (Harvest Moon). Amanda Heck bested all the women with a 731 series and a 259 game in the Inter-community League at Harvest Moon. Honorable mention: Brad Pepperman’s 789 series on the tough sport shot at Harvest Noon.
Today we remember David Gross, a Charter Member of the local Association Hall of Fame in 1967. A great pioneer in the sport of Bowling in the Williamsport area, Gross, was the driving force behind the local effort to gain a Charter for the local Association from the American Bowling Congress in 1933. He was elected as the first President of the Williamsport Bowling Association in 1933-34, and again served in that position from 1936 to 1940. He continued to serve on the Board of Directors into the 1960s. Averaging as high as 191 during the 1930s, Gross, in 1964, became the first area bowler to participate in 30 ABC national tournaments.
