    This center is the former home of the old “Championship Bowling” series on TV back in the 50s. The Golden Age of Bowling when the game was better by far!

    • J.R. Schmidt Says:

      “Championship Bowling” was run as an actual, ABC-sanctioned elimination tournament at Orchard Twin Bowl in 1960. Ray Bluth won, shooting a 299 along the way. A 6-pin cost him $10,000 in 1960-money.
