Elsmere Commercial Bowling League - Announcements

Mid Season Banquet - TBD

Due to Covid-19 Elsmere Commercial's 57th consecutive Season was cut short at 27 weeks. This is hard but pales in comparison to the entire world having "Normal" shut down! When will bowling resume? It now has resumed! When will NORMAL resume? Will NORMAL EVER resume or are we destine to live in a "NEW NORMAL"? Those are answers that at this time, are not known. All we can do is deal with "the new normal" and stay safe as we hope and pray that the REAL normal returns. This situation has taught us many things and opened our eyes to a lot of things, both good and bad. The one thing we must understand is how important friends and family are. Being isolated with limited friends and family contact is not the way life was intended. It's not the way people are designed. It is up to each of us to do our part to help end this pandemic and return life to "normal".

The world may be down, and the 2019-2020 season of bowling may have been ended early, but BOWLING WILL SURVIVE! It has been around for over 5000 years (read my History of Bowling from the home page) and it is NOT going away! It has returned! It may not look or feel like the way it did, but as long as it's back we can deal with change. I'm sure I echo the feelings of all of us when I say that I missed bowling and I missed my friends at bowling. 

Now that we are able to "shoe up" again and once again enjoy the company of friends at the lanes, even the frustration of the 10 pin(or 7 pin), seems trivial.

It is good to be back with my bowling friends again for another season of the game we all love so much. When you think about it, bowling is a game of constant adjustments. Lately life is constant adjustments. I wish you all the best. Stay safe, stay positive and together we can adjust to our "New Normal" while we wait for the "Old Normal" to return. Who knows, with a little faith and determination maybe we can make the "New Normal" better than the "Old Normal".
