Bowling With The Prez

Bowling
Tonight, we went bowling at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.



It is just to the West of the White House and is occupied by the Executive Office of the President.



It was very exciting to go there and be surrounded by all the action. 



The bowling is in the basement–just 2 lanes and a lot of beat of balls and smelly shoes. 



There was a weird sign that said “For trouble with bowling equipment, please call the GSA Help desk”–whose ever heard of a help desk for bowling (that really is service!)? 



There were pictures of many of the presidents bowling, including Obama, Bush, and even Nixon. 



It was funny that the bowling ally is called the Harry S. Truman Bowling Ally even though it is in the Eisenhower building.



I learned that AMF Bowling company donated the lanes to the Federal government. 



There are also a couple of lanes in the White House as well. 



Well back to my game–no gutter balls please. 😉



(Thank you National Institute of Standards and Technology and Dannielle Blumenthal for a terrific evening.)
