RHINELANDER - No matter what Wisconsin town you're in, you can probably find a bowling alley. Hundreds of bowlers are in Rhinelander for one of the city's biggest events.

People of any age can enjoy bowling. More than 900 ladies will be knocking them down at Hodag Lanes in Rhinelander this month. It's the 31st WI Women's Senior Tournament.

"I've been bowling in this tournament for ten years," Jeanne Tatro of Antigo explains. "And I thoroughly enjoy it."


The event's traveled around the state since it began in 1982, but this is the first time it's been in Rhinelander.

"The feedback I've been getting from the ladies is, 'Rhinelander is awesome,'" tournament coordinator Sharon Cline says. "Getting them to the area means we show them a good time. They like it here, they will come back."

This is a handicap tournament with both singles and doubles... and the ladies have to be at least 50 years old to take part.

"The senior tournament is something you look forward to every year," Somerset's Shirley Higgins proclaims. "I really enjoy it."

Lois Kasmarek of Rhinelander adds, "It's something I really enjoy. As long as I can walk and throw the ball, I'm going to do it."

While everyone wants that perfect game, it's also about enjoying the experience. The senior tournament continues Fridays through Sundays for the month of October.
