Just to chime in in this thread, Massachusetts is also a state with no high school bowling at any level. The only thing available for high school-age bowlers here are the junior leagues (including a travel league, I think) at the various houses, plus the occasional junior tournaments.

Mine did as well. In fact, in our section (Section IV - Southern Tier), we had about 20 schools with bowling teams in two different conferences; STAC (Southern Tier Athletic Association) had 11 teams who fielded Varsity and JV boys and girls teams and the Susquenango association had 9 teams - all from small schools who at least had enough bowlers to field a Varsity boys and girls team. New York will always have a state-wide school bowling program.

As for North Carolina and Georgia (where I live now and where I used to live), high school bowling will probably be a local club deal. Maybe, if bowling "infiltrates" the youth better, I can foresee North Carolina becoming a Varsity sport state. All Georgia has, really, is Atlanta, Savannah, Augusta, and Macon/Warner-Robbins as far as decent-sized areas. NW Georgia has a decent bowling following, too, but the state is otherwise too sparsely populated to make it a Varsity sport, I'm afraid.

You were lucky to have teachers. We had to learn by reading the side a box. A small box at that.

You were lucky to have boxes. We had to cut down trees, process them into pulp, and create our own cardboard, and then fold it into a box. And then, after that, we had to plant 3 new trees to take the place of that one.

Oh, and the place where the trees grew was uphill. Both ways. 5 miles.

you were lucky to have hills. we had to make our own hills just so that we COULD walk to school up hill both ways on our hands with our little brothers on our backs.. in fact, we were lucky to even eat. we didnt even have food either. we had to eat dirt.. and we were happy for that dirt.

you kids today dont know how good you have it.

Dirt? You were lucky to eat dirt!
When we got home we had to suck on lump of dry poison.
But you know, we were happy, even though we were poor.

Well, this is going on beyond the unbelievable. But, I will say the closest thing we had in Chicago that resembled a HILL, was the curb on the side of the street.
And, yes, the streets were paved, and the teachers spoke in sentences, taught us the 3-r's, We didn't eat boxes or dirt.

I guess I was just privileged. I had shoes too. And, separate ones for bowling.

Of course, none of us can take any real credit...
