If you missed the awards banquet last weekend, you missed a good meal at the Cresaptown Eagles and also friendly socializing with other bowlers in the area.

The size of the group seems to be getting smaller every year so it’s time we start inviting friends (not necessarily bowlers) to double with us. Get the word out that bowling is a great way to get away from the day-to-day stress and get some needed exercise as well.

As for myself, an 81-year-old senior, I found out that Margie Anderson (also 81) rolled a 238 game last week. I haven’t had a game that high in a long time. Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!
