“Harry Stoddard Memorial Tournament” coming November 12th

The annual CAPE (Challenged Athletes Playing Equally) benefit bowling tournament is coming up on Saturday, November 12th at 1:00pm here at SBC.  The tournament has been renamed to the “Harry Stoddard Memorial Bowling Tournament” in honor of our beloved GM and CAPE Board Member, who passed away earlier this year.

The tournament will again be a 7-pin No-Tap event (which means if you knock down 7 pins or more on your first ball it counts as a strike), and each participant will bowl 2 games.  All bowlers who bowl a 300 game will get a t-shirt (either “I bowled a 300” or “CAPE bowling”), and the cost is $10 per person and includes shoes.  Bumpers & ramps available for any athlete that needs them.

There are plans for some very special guests to join the CAPE bowlers this year, so come on out Saturday, November 12th at 1:00pm and join the fun for a great cause.  For more information, visit the CAPE website at or contact Rick Ryan at 615-238-7372.

Harry Stoddard gone…but will never be forgotten

Filed under: ALL Categories — Tags: — Mark @ 11:59 am

It is with heavy hearts we tell all of our friends that General Manager Harry Stoddard passed away early this morning.  He was 78 years young.  Harry was the “ambassador to the people” for many different bowling centers for more than 35 years.  A beloved individual to so many bowlers, Harry was the “face” of Smyrna Bowling Center for the past decade, always there with his warm smile and friendly handshake.  He never met a stranger, and with a passion for bringing smiles to faces, he especially liked “his” kids – the high school and young bowlers of SBC.  Everyone who came to know Harry will surely miss his jokes and his smile!!

Visitation with the family will be at Hermitage Memorial Gardens in Hermitage (535 Shute Lane, Old Hickory, TN 37138) on Monday, January 10th from 4:00pm – 9:00pm, and Tuesday, January 10th from 11:00am-2:00pm.  The funeral is now set for Tuesday afternoon at 2:00pm.  For more information on the services, please contact HMG at (615) 889-0361.
