Ramp bowlers at Showplace Lanes had a great time on Saturday, and the volunteers who assisted enjoyed themselves as well.

Ramp bowling allows SOTX athletes to participate in bowling even if they are not able to lift a bowling ball. A volunteer positions the ramp and places the ball on the ramp, but the athlete must set the ball in motion.

Saturday morning, volunteers were positioning the ramps with great care and then placing the ball on the ramp. Once the athletes put the balls in motion, they were just like any other bowler--some athletes talked to their bowling balls, willing them to hit the pins and, while others used their bodies to try to influence where the ball would hit the pins.

And, just like all other bowlers, there was great jubilation when all the pins fell down and great frustration when they did not.
