Bowling Fundraiser


Next time you’re at a cocktail party and need to pull out a fun fact about me, here’s one: I had a bowling scholarship to college. I wasn’t terribly good, but I was good enough to come in second place in a high school tournament two or three years in a row. The scholarship paid for books in a couple of my literature classes.

I played in a league during college as well. I haven’t been as active with bowling recently, mostly because my town doesn’t have a bowling alley.

But I took part in a charity fundraiser this past weekend. The bowling tournament raised money for the New Mexico Autism Society. I heard them say over the public address system that it was the most successful fundraiser NMAS had ever had.

On a competitive level, I averaged about 125 across all three games. Not as good as I was back in those tournaments, but not bad for a guy who hasn’t been to the lanes in nearly fifteen years.
