It’s no secret that the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington has been a boon for the local economy, but now this: Arlington is the new bowling capital of the free world.
“We’re thrilled to be the bowling capital of the world,” Jay Burress, president and CEO of the Arlington Convention & Visitors Bureau, declared to more than 500 bowling dignitaries and others who celebrated the grand opening of the International Bowling Campus on Six Flags Drive.
The new 100,000-square-foot facility combines the industry’s regulatory, research, marketing and historical preservation organizations under one roof near Six Flags Over Texas, Rangers Ballpark and the $1.2 billion Cowboys Stadium.
I also found out that www.bowl.com represents the United States Bowling Congress and it’s located in Arlington as well. No sense having to SPLIT time with Milwaukee as the bowling capital of the world when you can get next to Jerry’s World.
