Jones, Guinn bowlers of the week


Our featured men’s bowler of the week is Danny Jones. Jones started bowling at the age of 12 at Moonlight Bowl in San Jose, Calif. in 1971. His father, Neil, now 70, taught his son the fundamentals and basics. Neil is also a tribute to the bowling community by participating in leagues for the past 58 years. Jones moved to Lake Tahoe in 1987 and started bowling at Tahoe Bowl in 1989 in the His and Hers League. His highest game, 265, was rolled two weeks ago at Tahoe Bowl and highest series, 718, was rolled in 1995 in the His and Hers League. Jones bowls for the love of the game. In the Guys and Dolls League, rolling for Jo’s Design, averaging 179, Jones rolled games of 218-239-184 for a 646 series, qualifying him as Shott’s men’s bowler of the week. Great bowling, Danny!

Our featured women’s bowler of the week is Judy Guinn. Guinn started bowling at the age of 7 at Maples Bowl in Dearborn, Mich. in 1962. Her father, Bill, now 84, took her to the bowl and taught her the basics and fundamentals of bowling. Guinn moved to Lake Tahoe in January 1975 and started bowling at Tahoe Bowl in 1976. In 1981, William Shott, my brother, taught her a five-step approach with a full hook, which greatly increased her scoring. Guinn also bowled on the U.C. Davis bowling team in 1983 and 1984 and rolled her highest game, 256, while at college in 1983. Her highest series, 595, was rolled in the Scratch League at Watt Avenue Bowl in Sacramento, Calif. in 1986. Last year, Guinn won the High Average Plaque in the Gutter Gussies. Guinn also bowls because she loves the game. In the Gutter Gussies League, rolling for Alley Cats, average 148, Guinn rolled games of 176-179-178 for a 533 series, qualifying her as Shott’s women’s bowler of the week. Great bowling, Judy!

Everyone at the Tahoe Bowl would like to wish the entire Tahoe community a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. See you next year.
