In 1960, John Harrison (shown in picture) won the five-pins championship of the West. He was then automatically invited to compete in the Masters tourney at Toronto where he captured the Canadian championship.

Iris Kushner won the Manitoba High School (Singles) cham­ pionship in 1960 also.

Another champion was Terry Green who won the Western singles.

Freddie Burnick and Mrs. Dot McLennan headed the Central Manitoba Bowling Association Roll-Off on Jan. 31, 1962. It was the second straight CMBA crown for Dot.

Connie Wyatt's name was added to the championship list 111 1968 when she won the Manitoba and N.W. Ontario laurel in singles competition.

Ten-pin bowling is enjoyed by many people at Delta Lanes, Il-2nd St. N.E. Mr. Zen Glesby is the manager of this sporting establishment.

A book on the bowling activities in our city could easily be written. Suffice it to say it is one of the most popular pastimes, where all age groups are welcome and enjoy a fellowship that is part of the joy of living in Portage la Prairie.
