When I first met Jeanette Robinson she was a robust finalist in the 1964 BPAA National All-Star Tournament in Dallas.
When I last met Jeanette Robinson at The Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas she was the robust inspiration for the National Golden Ladies Classic, a must participate event for any woman bowler who admits to being 50.
The years may have changed her appearance a little, but not her zeal for life and love of bowling.
Jeanette, who made her bowling reputation in Michigan, has been making a promotional reputation in Nevada.
She started out as an instructor at the old Showboat, where she introduced her National Golden Ladies Classic in 1989.
Now she’s a Hall of Fame fixture at The Orleans, which really fits her gregarious personality with its upbeat bowling center located above the giant casino.
Of all the tournaments I have covered over the years, I have to label last year’s Golden Ladies Classic my favorite for many reasons:
1. The scoring was good, but not outlandish.
You can’t buy friendship like that.
And through it all there was Jeanette Robinson patrolling the action in the beautiful 70-lane center.
With the help of Orleans Manager Mike Monyak and his able staff, she makes sure that every i is dotted and every t is crossed.
They expect 75 plus entries for the 17th Golden Ladies Classic, which will be held March 5-8 to The Orleans with practice lanes available on Sunday March 4.
This event is so much fun and so colorful they should attract twice that many.
Among the field will be bowlers from across the pond (Atlantic Ocean) who have heard about this event or bowled in it before.
The $150 entry fee and $60 tournament room rate at The Orleans are attractive incentives.
So is Jeanette Robinson.
