Steve Nelson Named to Hall of Fame

Long time Central Division member Steve Nelson is the newest member of the Hall of Fame.  He was recognized both for his accomplishments on the greens and his contributions to US and Central Division Bowls as a division office and councilor.  In 2018 Steve managed Team USA to its first overall victory in the North American Challenge.  Oh yes, he was also the Central Division webmaster for a number of years.  On the greens he is a two time US National Champion and competed at a high level in several international events.  In 2011 he was ranked #22 in the world by World Bowls after a fifth place finish in the Champion of Champions tournament.  Steve is now competing in the Southeast Division and bedeviling his opponents there instead of beating up on his old Central Division buddies.  Congratulations Steve!  (PS:  We love you, but don’t hurry back.)

Here’s Steve and his partner Carl Landgren being presented with the Potlicker Cup by Ken Degenhardt after two of their wins.  Steve has won many other division championships.
