Rock Bowling Club recently began its first semester at Slippery Rock University. The organization has set out to cultivate a healthy social environment for those who enjoy bowling.
“Right now, our goal is just to garner interest,” said founder and president Heath Chase. “I hope it becomes a competitive club sport here at SRU one day. For now, there is only a competitive side if you want there to be.”
So far, almost 100 students have signed up for the bowling club’s e-mail list.
“I hope that at the end of this academic year, we can get at least eight people who are willing to join a league,” said Chase. “We are also working on a budget for next semester.”
The group plans to meet at least once a week, but they are not yet sure where meetings will be held.
“As of now we’re in contact with Bowl-O-Drome in Grove City,” Chase stated. “But if Coffaro’s opened its lanes back up, that would be ideal.”
Though approval for the constitution and by-laws is still pending, the club has been approved by the CORE website and will be accessible in the near future.
No official events or meetings have been planned for Rock Bowling Club. However, that does not stop its founder from looking ahead to the future.
“I think I have a lot to teach other students about bowling,” Chase said. “This can be a great learning and team-building opportunity if one puts in the effort.”
