Taylor Bowl

On Wednesday, September 13, 1989, I met with newly elected Physics Club officers Tom Taczak ’91, Dennis Kuhl ’90, Doug Halverson ’91, and Karen McEwen ’90 in Westminister House. I wrote in my diary, “first phys club meeting w. officers goes well”. That year we invented Taylor Bowl, an annual bowling competition between the Physics and Math clubs, both denizens of Taylor Hall, at the bowling lanes in Lowry Student Center. We intentionally chose an activity that either club could do, but that neither club could do well. The annual event was a great success for both clubs for nearly 30 years, but it ends with the demolition of Scot Lanes this month.
