Bowling News USA - February 1, 2011 The Otago Family Loves Storm!

The Otago Family has been involved in the bowling scene for many years.  Wendy bowled for over 20 years and Grant and Wendy met when she was working at Mt Gravatt Lanes in the 1990's.  After the boys were born, they took a break from bowling until Wendy began working at Loganholme when it opened in 2004.  The boys soon developed a love for the sport with their natural style. Grant only returned to league bowling in 2009 and hopes to compete in more tournaments in the future.

 

Grant and Wendy are now heavily involved with junior bowling through their positions with the South Queensland Junior Tenpin Bowling Association and President's Shield Team.  Currently, they coach and manage the 2011 Queensland South Girls President Shield Team.
