SU & ESF Faculty and Staff Bowling League: Bowlers Wanted
Do you enjoy bowling? Would you like to try bowling? Do you want a fun activity with your colleagues?
The SU & ESF Faculty and Staff Bowling League is seeking new members. This is a fun handicap league accepting male and female bowlers who are currently employed at Syracuse University or SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. Your skill level does not matter; beginners to the high average bowlers are encouraged to join. Beginners will be coached by more experienced and skilled bowlers.
The league bowls at Village Lanes, 201 E. Manlius St., East Syracuse, from 4:55-7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays. League play runs from September through April. Each week, practice bowling starts 10 minutes before league play. Weekly fees are about $15. Currently it is a non-sanctioned league.
This league has a long history of bowling in the area, from Drumlins in the ’60s to the present day at Village Lanes, with members always recruited from the University and college community.
This year we are in search of new members who would like to join a team or become league substitutes. There is also an opening for a full team. The only criterion is the bowler works for the college or University, is an alumnus or a spouse. Each team consists of four bowlers with one or two substitutes. There’s an incentive for league substitutes: weekly fees are paid by the team.
If you’re interested or have further questions, please contact Paul Szemkow, league secretary, at 315.960.2066 or email@example.com, or Don Place, league president, at 315.685.8655 or BusmanDP@verizon.net.
League play starts Sept. 14 but a practice session will be held on Aug. 31.
Captains include Don Place, Ray Leach, Aaron Knight, Jason LaTray, Dana Cooke, Eric Greenfield and Randy Money.
