Columbia, Normandy set to roll into fall


August 21, 1994|By DON VITEK

Brunswick Columbia and Brunswick Normandy, with a few changes, are ready for the winter tenpin season.

Mechanic Wayne Jones has transferred from Normandy to Columbia. He'll be working under the supervision of John Newby. Royal Antoine will be the lane man, and Kim Dyer is the pin chaser.

At Columbia, Gwen Huckaby will be at the control counter. The daytime snack bar attendant is Helen Hines and at night it's Anita Harris.

In the lounge, open the same hours as the center, Ginny Copley and Bob Lamartina will be pouring for the bowlers.

Shawn McDowell is the assistant manager and, of course, the center couldn't keep track of anything if Clarie Calish, the computer operator, didn't take care of the details.

Barbara Deming, sales director, said, "And we have a new addition to the center, a game room.

"We have openings in all our leagues right now, but they are filling up fast."

There's room in all leagues -- men's, women's, mixed, seniors and the Saturday morning Young American Youth Alliance.

Information: (410) 381-7750.

At Normandy, Warren Smith is the new assistant manager, replacing Jeff Sanders, who was made a manager in Virginia Beach, Va. Jason Feeser is the other assistant manager, and Carol Malinowski remains the general manager.

There's a pro shop off the concourse, and the lounge will continue to serve beer, wine and liquor.

"We've added a game room," said sales director Terry McDonald. "It's just been open a few months and it's been a real hit with both the youngsters and the adult bowlers."

Even at this late date, the 32-lane center still has room for tenpin bowlers who wish to join a winter league.

"We'll have about 45 adult leagues in action," McDonald said. "For men, women, seniors and mixed. There'll be two youth leagues on Saturday."

Youth leagues at both centers will accommodate bowlers of all ages.

Information: (410) 465-0355.

Both Columbia and Normandy are running specials through Sept. 11.

Games are 99 cents when lanes are available. This is a great chance to get some practice games thrown before the season starts.

Bowl early

If you can't wait for the 6:30 p.m. shift, Brunswick Columbia has three leagues for you.

Mondays, beginning Aug. 29, the Funtime-Anytime league will start at 4 p.m.

Information: (410) 381-7750.
