The Bowling League is now into the second half of the season, and have down-sized to 6 teams of 3 bowlers. There will be a Roll Off for the Championship on April 11th which will end the 31 week Season.
Neal Hampton, the 93-year-old Captain of Team 2, fell recently and injured his wrist so he will be out for the rest of the year. We hope to find a substitute bowler to replace him. He does leave big shoes to fill with his 127 pin average, but do not let that hold you back from subbing.
When our League began some 50 years ago, we had 10 Teams of 5 men each. They established scoring records that are posted on the Hall of Fame Blackboard on the west wall of Harbor Lanes. Our current smaller teams cannot match the team scores of former champions, but we keep trying…especially Team 5, consisting of Ray Demeulemeester, Tom Kneeshaw, and Tom Lukosavich. They hold the current record of high scratch game and series and high handicap game and series.

We need substitute bowlers to keep our teams at full strength. It only costs $6 for 3 games and it’s a good way to make new friends and pass away a long winter afternoon on each Thursday. We can use you any Thursday at 12 noon at Harbor Lanes on Jefferson Ave, one block north of 10 Mile Road. For any information, call Bob Vogler at 313-882-9636.
