Calling all Florence-area veterans who bowl

September 20, 2018

FLORENCE, S.C. – All veterans in and around Florence who bowl – or want to take up the activity – are encouraged to sign up for a veterans-only bowling league.

The league meets at 6:15 p.m. each Monday at Southgate Bowling Center at 1902 S. Irby St. in Florence. The action started this week, but veterans can still join.

This is the second season for the league, which is sanctioned by the U.S. Bowling Congress. Eighteen veterans and one spouse participated during the first season.

“We are hoping to double the number of veterans this season,” said Rick Walden, the league president. “Yes, your spouse can bowl with you, or she can be a spectator.”

To participate, contact Walden at 843-731-5919 or at behindthefoulline@gmail.com, or contact league secretary Michelle Brooks at 843-605-1678.
