Striking Spotlight: Jim Schwichtenberg

Welcome back Bowlers!!!!!!!

August is such a great month for our sport …League Meetings will soon start to form and before we know it we’re back into the Fall Bowling season. That makes this the perfect time to do bowling equipment checks. Maybe its time to change out those old grips, get that old bowling ball cleaned up or maybe even make time to get a lesson with a USBC Coach. David Leverage Silver Level USBC coach is having a 3 day Pro Bowling Camp the weekend of August 15-17.

Now some background on our Striking Spotlight Bowler of the month… Jim Schwichtenberg. Jim and I have been bowling on the Kopper Kup League for two and a half years and during that time Jim has helped me come along in my personal game mentally and physically. As a Senior Bowler cashing in PBA and ACBA tournaments he has taught me that focus and mental toughness is needed, no matter if it’s the first ball of game one or the last shot to win a title. Jim, I thank you for all your kind words over the years and look forward to another season of bowling with you again!
