SoBo Pair Inducted Into Bowling Hall Of Fame

The South Boston USBC Bowling Association Hall of Fame inducted two new members into the class of 2009 Sunday, with Stafford Curtis and Ed Davis getting the call.

Curtis and Davis bring a wide-range of talents to the Hall of Fame.

Curtis is described as a “computer whiz” that worked with the SBBA computers after the passing of James Wood, according to league official Addison Marable.

“It was Stafford who came to the rescue and deciphered everything in the computer that Mr. Wood had.

“He was a big help for David Anderson who had been elected secretary/treasurer for the association at that time.”

Curtis, who has served as secretary of the Friday Morning League and Industrial League, is also an accomplished bowler who has rolled in many local tournaments, Virginia State tournaments, and nine National ABC and USBC tournaments.

Over the years he has averaged 200 and his average now is about 180.  His high set is 705 and is high game is 279.

Davis is the only original member still bowling in the Person County League which now bowls in Roxboro, but started in Chapel Hill before moving to Danville for one year and coming to Hupps Mill Lanes and the World of Sports for over 35 years.

Davis served his league as president on several occasions, and has been on the Board of Directors for many years.

Davis, who usually averages in the 170’s and has a high game of 269, has rolled in many local tournaments and some Virginia State tournaments.
