Most bowlers do not like vacations.
They would rather be trying to figure out the lane conditions and knocking down pins.
So Jan. 2 was a happy day at the Surf. League competition began for the New Year. Recap sheets for two leagues bowling on Dec. 15 and 17 start off this column. Then we will move right into the New Year.
