I started bowling in 1984 through the Watkins Johnson League in Felton at the Felton Bowl. I started a job and they had their own league. Willie managed the Felton Bowl at that time. What I like best about bowling is the people. I’ve got friends I met in 1984 who I’m still friends with today.
My favorite bowling memory is when I coached the juniors in Felton. About five years ago, I ran into a guy I coached back then, he bowls in the summer league now. He said he wouldn’t be here without me and I almost cried. I like that I run into those juniors I coached.
The people. Coming here is like going to “Cheers.” I come in on Sunday mornings and they’ve got my lane all ready and everybody knows your name!
