As we continue the bowling story in Cordova, after the opening of the Club Bowl, leagues formed immediately — many were already forming before the Club Bowl even opened. A teen league also formed and Dick Barton donated the bowling ball he won to the most improved bowler in the Teen League after the 12 games of the season were played. Although a big percentage of the people in Cordova knew little about bowling, classes were started, associations and leagues were formed, balls and shoes were picked out and bowling began in earnest. In the early spring of 1963, the Women’s Association sent two teams to Fairbanks for the State Tournament. It would make a good story to say the new kids on the block won all the trophies but alas that only happens in fairy tales and only a few minor triumphs were realized on the lanes.

THE PRETZEL FACTORY – Leonard and Marie Lange, old-time area fishermen now moonlighting as pretzel proprietors, recently opened a new shop, the Pretzel Factory, on First Street in Cordova. It specializes in hard and soft pretzels (including pre-cooked pretzels to take home) and long and short hot dogs, but also serves other assorted refreshments. Leonard began setting up shop Jan. 4, and by Friday afternoon, Jan. 13, was open for business. Although the Pretzel Factory appeared to be doing good business on its first day, most of the money taken in shifted from Leonard’s wallet to Leonard’s till as he treated several helpers (above) to sample pretzels. The Pretzel Factory is open from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. daily, or later if business demands.
