Rockford’s next national championship team could be a bowling team. The Rockford Travelers is a team of men that competes in the National Travelers Bowling League.
The Rockford Travelers recently won the Western Division of the League. That advances it to the national tournament June 20-24 in Buffalo, New York. The Travelers like their chances of winning the title.
“We’re very hungry,” says Travelers President Kirk Bickham. “Everyone’s anticipating a victory, and we’re taking a lot of people with us so we have some support when we get to Buffalo.”
“We’re all consistent,” says Travelers Bowler Jerome Woodfork. “We can throw strikes with the best. That’s what we did. Regardless if it’s a strikefest or a grindfest we can do it.”
In addition to holding competitions the National Travelers Bowling League also presents scholarships to youth bowlers.
