Did you know?

The first local team to be sanctioned by the ABC was the Morgan Clothiers team. In 1926, this team became the first local team to bowl in the ABC National Tournament in Buffalo, New York, where they purchased sanction cards in order to be eligible to participate.

The following year, many teams in the local area purchased sanction cards, enabling future honor scores to be honored by official ABC recognition. By 1978 the number of sanctioned bowlers in the Williamsport area increased to an all- time high of over 360.

Saw a long-time bowler the other day as he walked across the parking lot and into the bowling lanes. Not that old, he shuffled along with legs that no longer worked as well as they used to, apparently hobbled by one of those medical conditions by which many of us are eventually inflicted. But he was still coming out to bowl.

One doesn’t have to be in great shape to bowl. All that is required is the desire to do so.

This column may emphasize high scores, but the most important thing to keep in mind is to enjoy the participation and the comradery surrounding the great sport of American Ten Pins.

Hope to see you on the lanes.
