2013 bowling season off to fast start
Wednesday, January 9, 2013 12:00 AM
Hope all our bowlers had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year with friends and family. Now it's back to our passion...bowling!!!
This year is starting out great.
First, many league members "bowled in the New Year" at Depot Bowling's New Year's Eve Blowout. All had a good time and look forward to next year's event.
The Thursday Adult League returned Jan. 3 for the second half of their season. Some bowled outstandingly, others not up to par, but all glad to be back. With a new team added, we are now up to 17. There is still room for a team and a vacancy to fill so don't miss out on your chance to join this great league at a great facility.
This past Sunday, Depot Bowling hosted the Magnolia Travelers Ladies Bowling League. It was the first competition of their season. Sixty ladies from other bowling centers around Mississippi came to Philadelphia to compete. Many compliments were given about the facility and the staff. Way to go Depot!
The Depot Dollies will be traveling to McComb for next month's competition. Team members are Tina Sumpter, Kim Vowell, Vickie Hill, Tanya Watkins, and Amanda Holdiness. Best of luck this year ladies!
The Neshoba Central Rocket's Bowling Team will have a phone-in match with Olive Branch Thursday at 4pm at Depot Bowling. All are encouraged to come cheer and support this hard working team.
Sunday, January 13th, at 2pm is the start of the second session of the Sunday Youth League. Previous league members and newly joining members are anxious to get started. It is not too late to sign up and become part of this fun, social activity. Call 601-656-0770 or stop by Depot Bowling for more information.
