Today was the State Special Olympics Bowling meet for my little sister Abby. I'm sure you guys remember she won the silver medal at the regional bowling meet and she has won 2 bronze in the swimming meets over the past 2 years. Well... :grin:



Thats right baby, we brought home the GOLD! She did really good and everyone was very proud of her. I was her coach so I took her up to the line everytime. She was the only person in a wheelchair who didn't use a ramp and there were some who weren't in wheelchairs who used ramps, so I thought that was pretty cool.

Her team actually did really well. I think they got 4-5 Gold medals, probably the same amount of silver and bronze as well. One girl in a different division bowled a 123, which was the high game of the day and in that game she picked up a 4-10 split, TWICE!

We were all very proud of everybody there today.

Thought just occured to me... does this mean she goes onto the National level? :confused:

12-01-2006, 06:21 PM
No, at her age they only do regional and state competition. Maybe when she is older she will compete on the National level.

Now you need to get into bowling again Josh. Even if its just you two going and bowling. My average just moved up to 197, so you got something to work towards. :)

And Chris if I had another person to bowl with me I would join a league, but I don't :(

-congratulations, go easy on the competition!

Thanks all!

Meh, sign up for a summer league. Its only 16 weeks so if you don't like the people, it won't be that much misery. You might find some people who you get along with who need a 4th for a winter league. I'm in my second winter season and I'm sure when summer hits, I'll have people asking me left and right to bowl with them. Just get to know people and establish yourself as a good bowler. C'mon, these are things I shouldn't have to tell you. :o

12-02-2006, 07:13 PM
I'll bowl with ya, Shu. Of course, we'll have to pick days and times, and I'll be here in Oklahoma and you'll be in AZ, but hey! Who has to be picky?
