If you bowl a perfect or near-perfect game on Fort Leonard Wood, you could be immortalized on Daugherty Bowling Center’s new Wall of Fame.
“For men, it’s (a score of) 285 and above,” to be placed on the wall, while “for ladies, it’s 275 and above,” according to Brian Shupe, Recreation assistant at DBC.
“We’ll take your photo and put the score up there, along with what night you bowled and what league (you’re) playing in, as well,” Shupe added.
The wall has been up since the beginning of the year on the bowling center’s north wall near Lane 1. It isn’t the first display to feature the center’s top bowlers.
“Years and years ago, back in the ‘70s and ‘80s, we had a wall of fame, but with the remodels (since that time) it disappeared,” Shupe said.
Shupe and Phil Brewington, DBC business manager, began discussing plans for the display soon after Brewington started working at the center in August.
“When Phil came in, we started talking about putting a new Wall of Fame up, and last month we started putting (the current) one together,” Shupe said.
Officials hope the wall will be an inspiration to current bowlers and new bowlers alike. “We wanted to recognize our outstanding players and to encourage other people to get on the Wall of Fame,” Brewington said.
