Did You Know?

Bowling has been rumored to have been around since as early as 3,200 BC. Polynesians rolled stones at objects from about 60 feet away.  Bowling started to appear in America around the 1800’s and by the 1870’s, competitive style bowling  was becoming more common in Chicago, Milwaukee and New York. In 1947, Harry S Truman open the first White House bowling alley and in 1952 pinspotters (automated pin setting machines) were introduced, unfortunately putting many “pinboys” out of work.
