    Talking New from Colorado

    Hello everyone. I will be finishing up only my 2nd year of bowling in the next few weeks. I took up this sport for re-hab after I had major neck surgery to clean me out after I had cancer. My first year was pretty ugly because I was not very strong and could hardly move my head and shoulders. My average for this period was a whopping 142. Since then I have learned how to roll not throw a bowling ball and have become a good tweener with a nice hook on the ball. This year my average is 180 with 4 games over 250 and 3 600 series. I have bowled in 5 local handicap tournaments and won one of them along with a second place finish last week. I am looking forward to Vegas in July and rolling high scores there.I am using Roto-Grip equipment now and bowling 5 times a week (when I am not busy taking care of my Grandaughter) because of my disability but this sport has done wonders for my body and my mind. Have fun and high scores.

    Greetings, Pete, glad you're aboard. Hmm, sounds like there may be a Colorado gathering sometime.

    I went through the Springs once on the way back from Tuscon. We stopped someplace for ice cream before getting back on the road.

    Pete It sounds like bowling is great for your rehab. Congrats on your tourny scores. I'm down in the Springs, keep up the great scores.
