Gone But Not Forgotten: Hall of Famer and resident giant David Codding, who joined the league in 2001 and had vowed to retire if he ever rolled a 300 game. It became clear this time was close when ge began rolling 200+ games between-the-legs on fun night -- and these were legitimate strikes mind you. On October 2, 2012, in his third game on lanes 45&46, David finally achieved his goal and became the first bowler in our league to roll a perfect game. True to his word, he retired from bowling at the end of that season.
