SLV Bowling Alley Open House
by ELLEN COOK
THE AD HOC Bowling Committee hosted a celebration of the renovation of the
SLV bowling alley with an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday,
February 25. An estimated 100 members attended the event at the Recreation Center
and enjoyed hot dogs grilled by Walt Lowe provided from funds collected at the
bowling fundraising events last summer.
Ray Tarnosky, BOD President, and Kirk Smith, GM/COO, thanked SLV members
and staff who were responsible for making this happen. Walt Lowe, Ad Hoc Bowling
Committee Chair, complimented the committee members for their contributions to
the completion of the renovation. Pam Royal, Director of Recreation, was given
a standing ovation for all her work to ensure that everything was done in a timely
manner. Yours truly had the honor of cutting the ribbon.
I would, again, like to recognize the many people who have been involved with the
SLV bowling program and the renovation project:
• Jim Wilson established the first men’s league in the late 90s; Sandy Nielsen established
two women’s leagues.
• My husband placed the single vote in 2012 against the BOD’s decision to accept the
recommendation to “define the current bowling alley space as the future location for
an expanded fitness center,” and he has continued to support the bowling program.
Just to set the record straight: Mark Lusby & Heidi Martin, were not yet on the BOD and
were not part of the 6-1 vote.
• League Directors (Pat Kuech, Monday morning; Walt Lowe, Monday night; Dave &
Ginny Kaczmarek, Tuesday night;and Bob & Karen Divita, Wednesday night) continued
their groups while the equipment and lanes deteriorated, and their leagues are still in
• Dave & Ginny Kaczmarek and Don Smallwood appealed to the BOD at many monthly
meetings in 2014/2015 regarding the need for updated equipment; Don researched
sources of new or renovated equipment.
• 37 bowlers met on a 75-degree January 2015 day to organize the bowling community.
• 32 members gathered 917 signatures on the petition presented to the BOD in May
2015 requesting to update & maintain the bowling alley.
• Bob & Karen Divita ran a 2015 summer league and hosted a tournament fundraiser.
• Micki Shafer, Recreation Center Improvement Strategy Subcommittee Chair, reported
at the August 20, 2015 town hall meeting that the bowling alley was a unique SLV
amenity and should be updated and retained.
• The Ad Hoc Bowling Committee was established in February 2016; and all members
were actively involved in the renovation process.
• The current BOD voted 6-0 (one member absent) on June 9, 2016 to fund the bowling
alley renovation. In the discussion, Russ Dickinson reported that the space was
designed to be only a bowling alley, could not be used for anything else, and that it
“had to be fixed or boarded up.”
• Don Smallwood and Butch Dieckhoner identified potential bidders; the Ad Hoc
Committe eevaluated the vendor proposals andrecommended a contractor.
• Pam Royal, Director of Recreation, oversaw every detail of the installation of the
renovated equipment, lanes, seating and the new flooring.
• New leagues were established by Howie & Denise Therreault, Thursday night, and by
Joe & Ellen Jankowski, Friday night. June LeRow hosts a Wednesday morning “open
bowling” for anyone who wishes to participate when they are available.
So you see, more than 1,000 members made the bowling alley renovation a
reality and the bowling program a growing success; and I am honored that I had
the opportunity to be one of them. Use of the facility is increasing, and the number
of lines bowled in December 2016 was more than double the number bowled the
The bowling alley is available for open bowling during normal RC working hours
and any time leagues are not bowling. There are new bowling balls and shoes and
even 4-lb balls with five holes and a ramp for children! Karen Divita is the SLV
Bowling Coordinator, and she is busy working on new events for 2017. She would be
happy to hear any ideas you have and can be reached at the Recreation Center.•

WINE OF THE MONTH
COCCHI BAROLO CHINATO is another after-dinner aperitif from Piedmont, Italy. It is made
from 100% Nebbilo (as is the familiar related Barolo table wine)…this one tastes more like
Vermouth. Barolo Chinato provides a bolder, more concentrated flavor than Vermouth with
the bonus of velvety layers of sweet fruit, balanced by some bitterness and spice. Aromas
include clove, ginger, juniper and orange peel. This is fortified wine, a blend of certified
traditional Barolo, herbs, spices and bittering agents, to which is added high octane grappa. If
you’re not a fan of straight Vermouth on the rocks, this wine is a great alternative and a mixer
for any cocktail that usually calls for Vermouth. Available at Total Wines for about $16.00.•
