I decided to donate mine to a worthy cause--Goodwill. As I walked into the drop off area, the woman asked me what was in the box. I told her it was a bowling ball. She was completely speechless. I guess they hardly get any balls as donations. LOL!

I should have quantified my response. The balls we set out for the dumpster, are core seperated or cracked too badly for use.

Goodwill or some other charity are great, or you can look into donating to the Jr program (older jrs can use the heavier balls).

All of my old gear goes to the youth league or to people I bowl league with that can't afford new equipment right now.

I'm currently trying to get rid of my 14 lb equipment. I sold a couple to someone I know, one of which was undrilled. I'm trying to get my sister-in-law to take a few since her "newest" ball is an Absolute Inferno a bunch of us got from a ball league the summer they came out. I've thought about talking to my Pro Shop to see if they are involved in a youth league that could use some of them, I just haven't been to the shop since May or June when I picked up my re-drilled 16s.
