pertaining to the feminine tlrst became a form of recreation in 1867 in pioneer New Braunfels when one alley was built The game of nine pins was rolled exclusively with a handball containing no holes At this time the king pin was inches higher than the others and had a knob on ladies joined the men in this sport in 1890 when a league was formed which met in the afternoons Then Friday was designated as family night and also became a weekly event The game of nine pins is still enjoyed by the ladies young and old on Thursday time to time additions were built and by 1937 the Social Club boasted eight alleys In the same year on October 18 the first Ladies Tenpin League was organized with six teams and this group continued to bowl until 1940 when the ladies became so enthusiastic that 16 teams were Sept 12 1946 the local organization joined the WIBC under the guidance of Mrs Helen Baetz of San highest game rolled on the local alleys was on Sept 19 1938 by Stella Timmermann with 266
