Power wheelchair users like me would (likely) not be able to bowl if several folks had not decided to make it possible.
Claude Giguere is one of the main folks who decided to make bowling possible – and fun – for all types of wheelchair users, even high-level quadriplegics like me. Claude is the inventor of what is now known as the IKAN Bowler® (I am generously credited with co-inventing it) and he put together a Museum-like display to kind of share the evolution from the wooden prototype he built to the precision product we bowl with today. One of the two regular places at which our Central Florida group bowls, AMF Leesburg Lanes, is now displaying our history for all to see, and we are thankful for them giving our display a home.
We took some pictures from the “unveiling” of the display to our Quad Squad group.
Thank you to Claude and everyone who has helped to make bowling possible AND FUN for all!
