Reno, Nev., might be the divorce capital of the world, but at least one longevity record — unofficial or no — was added to in that city this year.
Bowling partners Jim Gray of Los Alamos and Ed Bremer of Española made their 35th consecutive appearance this year at the United State Bowling Congress Open Championship, which was held in Reno.
With their appearance in early April, Gray and Bremer officially kept their streak alive as the duo with the longest consecutive streak of playing in the open doubles tournament, a streak which dates back to 1976.
Gray/Bremer threw a 1,074 at National Bowling Stadium in Reno. While it was well off the pace of the team of Jeffrey Mersch/Erik Vermilyea, which finished with a combined 1,507, winning the tournament isn’t nearly as important for the northern New Mexico team as keeping their remarkable streak going.
“It wasn’t stellar for either one of us,” Gray said of their showing at Reno. “I bowled very well the last two games of doubles. I thought that would carry me through the additional brackets when the tournament was over.”
