Coach holds the girls together

I would like to say a huge thank you to Rosemary Kunow. You are the rock that has held this Island Girls bowling team together. For the eight years that I have been a member of the team, I can say that they have been some of the best times in my life. Your hard work at organizing, phone calls, collecting money, and just keeping everything on track is amazing. You have patience that could put generals to shame. Gathering 24 women to move in the same direction is a feat that most people would shy from, yet you continue stay upbeat and start again for the following year. There are few people who would organize groups like this and every year it gets better. You have allowed average bowlers to feel that they are “somebody” and we have shined. This year has been exceptional and all the women from around the state and Canada participating in the championships know who the “Whidbey Island Girls” are. Thank you so much Rosemary, from all of us:

Laney Rathbun, Angie Boyer, Annette Zimmer, Vickie Burns, Laura Meders, Carol Decker,

Toni Amsler, Dawn Kadolph, Joanne Skaar, LaVonne Klinefelter, Linda Breedlove, Bette Kohlenberger, Sheila SanAngelo, Pam Moore

Laima Scott, JoAnn Sapp, Sue Sapp, Judy Sexton, Maria Crowell, Luz Stanalonis, Cathi Baysa, Vera Demers, Rachelle Gilliam and myself.
