Phil Royer Elected to
Hall of Fame
Phil’s love for bowling was developed while he was serving our country. While he was stationed in Korea, Phil held the League Secretary position. Upon returning to civilian life, he started bowling at Mississquoi Lanes in Lowell, Vermont. There he helped to develop the Local Men’s Bowling Association. Phil held the Office of League Secretary/Treasurer for 35 years. Phil ran the local tournament for over 20 years. I might remind everyone that this was all done by hand (pencil and paper) and required a lot of time to complete. He retired from that position when the new Orleans County United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Association was formed in 2006. I had the pleasure of getting to know Phil and his genuine love for the sport while working with him to form the new association. Phil was a great driving factor in getting the men, women, and youth leagues merged into the Orleans Country USBC Association. Upon the completion of the merger, Phil was elected Vice-President and still holds that position today. Additionally, he has on the State Board since the men, women, and youth merged. He has bowled in many tournaments over the years; Green Mountain Open, Vermont State, USBC Nationals, and Senior tournaments to name just a few. Phil also bowled in civic club tournaments. Furthermore, Phil continues to support the area youth bowling program by faithfully coming every week to Waterfront Lanes to watch and support his two grandsons, Jarid and Noah. Everything he does for the bowling industry he does because of the great love he has for the sport, not for personal gain. Congratulations Phil on all your accomplishments in the bowling industry.
Thank you and greatly appreciated,
