Joe Zinna was recently recognized for his outstanding lawn bowls career by being elected to the US Bowls Hall of Fame. Joe has been a force in Central and national tournaments for almost forty years. He has won many division championships and has appeared in multiple National Championships where he has won gold three times. He also represented the US in four North American Challenges and skipped for Team USA in the Atlantic Games in Scotland.
Joe’s other contributions to the game of bowls include two terms as the Central Division president along with a stint as the division head umpire. He was also the president, vice president, and treasurer of the Rockford Lawnbowling Club. Currently he is serving as a selector for Team USA. Even though Joe has significantly cut back on his playing time over the last several years, if you meet him on the greens today do not anticipate having a happy time of it.
