Bill McAlister

San Diego, CA

I was born and raised in a small town in northern California where there was a four lane bowling center (known as a bowling alley, at that time).  I began working there setting pins at the age of 13 and bowling there for five years.

After moving to southern California, I went to work in a bowling pro shop in Torrance in 1973.  In 1978 I went to work for a wholesale bowling supply business in Seattle.  In 1980 I came to San Diego and opened San Diego Bowling Supply where I have been serving the bowlers of San Diego County for 33 years.  San Diego Bowling Supply has sponsored a scratch league at Kearny Mesa Bowl for five years.
