MSO Names Bowling Tourney After Ed Lanehart

The Maryland Senior Olympics is pleased to announce that our annual bowling event has been named the Ed Lanehart Tournament in honor of our long-time coordinator. The MSO Board vote was unanimous, and Ed’s family has approved the honor. Ed passed away last August at age 86. He was inducted in our Hall of Fame in 2005 and had been a member of our board for 26 years.

Many players participated in our bowling tournament because of Ed. He had so many friends and was such a galvanizing presence in the bowling community that our two-day event was a homecoming. We hope to keep that tradition going for perpetuity.

So, mark your calendar for Aug. 29-30 at Bowlero Ellicott City. For men and women age 50 and above, singles, doubles and mixed doubles events will be played. Out-of-state players are welcomed. Registration opens this spring.
