As the highlight of the bowling season for thousands of women bowlers, nearly 2,500 participants have shown their dedication to the event by competing in 25 or more USBC Women's Championships. Three of those bowlers, with a combined 142 years of participation, were honored prior to team competition Saturday in the 2008 USBC Women's Championships at Super Bowl. Eighty-seven-year-old Dorothy Sternberg
was honored for 52 years, Joyce Georgeson
(pictured left with Tournament Manager James Lamb), 76, was presented a plaque for 50 years, and Helen Kidwell
was a forty-year recipient.
