This was the first year MCC started a bowling team, which they were honored in front of the other 6 teams in the league at the Eagles on the evening of Wednesday, April 9th of 2003. Tim Mitchell got a personal award for "Most Improved Player" as his scored went up the highest since beginning of play on September of 2002 and end of April of 2003. Each active player were presented a trophy and 1 "gigantic" trophy for the whole team for the glory of Jesus, right team?
Congratulations and may God bless you another fun-fellowship and witnessing year to the Morris community!
Bulgarian Couple Visiting
Tony & Margarita, a couple from Bulgaria went to go bowling Saturday (Dec 30th of 06') evening. They joined my friend Tim M. and I on a quiet evening at the local bowling alley.
"When Crystal Lanes opens Friday, bowlers will get a chance to try out the new automatic scoring.
Owner David Ziegelmann recently completed a makeover of the Morris bowling alley that includes a new look along with electronic control terminals and mounted monitors.
“We try to do some improvements every year,” said Ziegelmann. “I’m really happy with how it turned out.”
Bowlers will be happy with the new user-friendly system that features eight languages.
“Anyone can use it,” said Ziegelmann.
Easy to follow directions are found right on the control terminal and Ziegelmann will be available to help bowlers get used to the new technology.
In fact, Ziegelmann is opening the bowling alley earlier than usual this summer, to get everyone accustomed to the changes before leagues begin after Labor Day.
Crystal Lanes offers 12 lanes, including six with bumpers for families with small children. The alley also features pool tables, a dart board, and a juke box. Party packages are available for all ages.
“Bowling is still one of the cheapest forms of entertainment around,” said Ziegelmann. “It’s very affordable.”
Bowlers can play three games and rent shoes for under $10.
Crystal Lanes and Entertainment Center, located on Hwy 28 West in Morris, is open daily."
