The history of Roger's Ranch Bowling Club.

  Rogers Ranch is 7 miles outside of the farming community of Lockhart. Rogers Ranch Bowling Club typifies Texas and other U.S. clubs. Farmers near Lockhart organized the Rogers Ranch Verein in the early 1900's with a bowling alley and dance hall. When the club house burned in 1920, the organization joined with the Germania Schuetzenverein, a shooting society that met in Henry Richter's pasture north of town.

  Over the years, the bowling club has seen ups, and downs in its membership and facilities. In the 1930s, members enclosed an open-air dance floor lit by lanterns after a group of "wild boys" from Brushy Creek rode up on horseback and shot out the lights. Fire destroyed two other  clubhouses on the same site. The current building was completed in 1961. Though the Rogers Ranch dance hall and shooting club no longer exist, the bowling alley does duty as a social center and sports hall. Changes have been subtle: New wood for all the well-worn lanes, air conditioning, and upholstry for  the old church pews that serve as waiting benches. The membership that once supported leagues five nights a week now meets once weekly for bowling, and once weekly for other various events.

  But the loss of numbers has not dimminished bowler's enthusiasm. Through the years, vetern bowlers have passed on, and newcommers have joined the family of bowlers. Rogers Ranch dosen't look like an Old World tradition that refuses to fade away; it just looks like alot of fun.
