Carolina Keglers bowling shakes off rust for new season

Published 11:09 pm Thursday, September 26, 2013

The Carolina Keglers began a new bowling season Wednesday, Sept. 25.

This is a mixed league of women and men over 50 who want a little recreation with an emphasis on fun rather than competition.

No experience required. Bowlers’ averages range from 70 to 170. Their format is non-traditional in that they change teams every week. This means there is no need to find a sub if you can’t bowl one week.

Just keep the league secretary informed of your schedule and team adjustments are made while you enjoy that cruise to the islands.

The Keglers welcome new bowlers any time during the six-month season. They bowl Wednesday mornings at Autumn Lanes in Forest City at 10 a.m. There is no league fee, you only pay for your bowling and shoe rental.

The gang was a bit rusty after a long summer off, but had a good time as always. Familiar faces told stories of summer and new folks were met with friendly smiles and greetings.

Some notable high games:
Ellen Harvey – 147
Joan Hancock – 155
Jack Knirk – 188
Mike Davidson – 192
Gary Poague – 196
