Hello all. This subject drew me in and I thought that it would be only appropriate for my first post.
I would like to add the following into the mix of what a "good" bowler 'is'. A good bowler is one who freely and unselfishly offers help, advice, coaching and mentoring to others. A "good" bowler promotes the sport, not for personal gain , but in an effort to help expand the sports horizons and to bring the challenge, fun and joy to others. Good bowlers bring others in to see what a wonderful sport this is and how much enjoyment one can attain by hurtling a cursed ball at a bunch of stationary wood.
After years of involvement in several other competitive sports, I can tell you that one of the greatest things that bowing has going for it is the promotion and involvement at the grass routes level. I have seen this for years and years. Growing up in a bowling alley, I took it for granted. And over the last several days since coming across this site during my "rebirth" into bowling, I have witnessed that it has not died-not at all.
So I'm back. Back to this @#$$#%! game. I have been smitten again by one of my earliest loves. I have become active again thanks largely to all of you. You have drawn me back in. Thanks a bloody lot!!-lol
