-Shopping For The Holidays
11/22/2001 - By George Freeman
      I'm writing this the day before Thanksgiving, and I usually make fun of stores that have Christmas stuff out weeks before Thanksgiving.  However, I guess I'll jump on the bandwagon and talk about shopping for Christmas before Thanksgiving.

      If there is a bowler on your gift list, there are a lot of options to consider.  Bowling balls are being released faster than the Montreal Expos lineup, so instead of getting a ball that will be obsolete by the holidays, I would suggest getting a gift certificate if you are planning to buy someone a bowling ball.  That way they can go into the pro shop and decide for themselves.

      Accessories are really really good ideas for stocking stuffers.  Things like rosin bags, booties for shoes, new skin, bowling towels, bowling tape, all of these things are always needed by the everyday bowler.  If your recipient doesn't need anything new, most bowling centers offer certificates for open bowling now.  We could all use more practice :).

      Friday will be a monster shopping day, spending part of it in the bowling center pro shop will save you on some big crowds--at least for a while.

      Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving Day.
