Bowling
 

 

The SIR organization is committed to sponsoring activities which enable the memberships to mentally, physically, and socially participate actively  to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
 
Bowling is one of the activities which has been organized to promote the physical bowling competition throughout Northern California and the close Nevada area.
 
The SIR Directors are committed to sponsoring approximately 20 tournaments a year and have a goal of one league per Branch.  

Branch 128 bowls with the seniors at the Danville Bowl on Thursdays at noon.  There are approximately 20 SIR members, not all Branch 128 members, in the league.  Competition is usually mild but, there are over 5 bowlers who are plus 90 years old, and they don't suffer losing well.  Interested in our activity?  Stop by the Danville Bowl on Thursdays around noon if you would like to join a team, or, if you wish to just come and watch.
 

October 2019 UPDATE:

 

The Fall/Winter leagues have started and the leagues for younger bowlers(millennials) have seen an increase in interest of league bowling.  The senior leagues have had an small increase in the number of bowlers but the commitment to a long season is a stumbling block in attracting new bowlers.

 
There are 12 - 15 SIR leagues and that number is down because of neighboring branches combining their leagues due to the reduction of bowlers and the aftereffects of the recent No. California fires.  Bowling had been a large part of the seniors social functions and the fires caused a loss of the "meeting place" and personal time needed for this activity.
 
SIR bowling tournaments are ongoing.  There are seven scheduled in the next few months, many in the areas close to our Branch.  Scheduled are:
 
           Oct.31 - Nov.1     Modesto     McHenry Bowl
           Nov. 12               Concord     Clayton Valley Bowl
           Dec. 2 - 3            Danville     Danville Bowl
           Jan. 21 - 22         Napa         Napa  Bowl
           Feb. 12                Livermore  Granada Bowl
           Feb. 25                Concord     Clayton Valley Bowl
