Visually impaired bowling bond 

By Denise Rosch reporting

A local bowling league is proving there's nothing you can't do with a little 
effort. All of their team members are visually impaired. The bowlers are from 
the Blind Center of Nevada. 

For more than five years the league has been growing. Today there are several 
dozen members who rely on volunteers to help them play. And although they do 
keep score, many say the comradery is the best part of the game. 

"Everybody has their own strategy," bowler Al Treise explains. "Some use an 
approach, some just stand up at the line. Basically point us in the right 
direction and get out of the way." 

The Silver Nugget donates everything to the league including shoes, lanes, and 
balls.
