Access to Bowl.com

If you haven't already experienced it, there may be a need for most, if not all, of us to register to use Bowl.com's "Find a Member" feature. I can also tell you that the Bowl.com app will be available to members only. As long as you are a member of USBC you will have access to everything. 

I don't have any other details at this time but when they surface, I will post them here.

Age is only a number

I'm quite sure that you have heard the phrase "Age is only a number" more than once. While it has many meanings, I find that the most impressive one is to remind us that great things can be accomplished at any age. There are a lot of folks who would not believe that someone over 70 could ever bowl a 300 game or an 800 series, but here in Nevada we have quite a few folks who have done just that. Want to know who they are? Just click here to see the list for the last 12 years.

Oldest Bowler to Bowl 800 Series in Nevada

Every once in awhile somone brings something new to my attention and this is just one of those little tidbits. Do you know who is the oldest bowler in Nevada to bowl an 800 series? If not, then you are in the same boat I was until I discovered the answer last night. He is Jim Eklund and he was one month shy of being 84 when he bowled it on July 9, 2014 while bowling for the Wednesday Doubles league at the Gold Coast. At the time he broke a USBC record that had been set in 2005 but, unfortunately, Jim's USBC record only lasted until December 14, 2015. On behalf of the Southern Nevada USBC Association's board of directors we would like to offer Jim our sincerest congratulations.
