Residents from several area retirement communities are participating in the second season of Angel of Mercy's Wii be Rockin' Wii be Bowling's Wii bowling league.
Participants gather weekly on Fridays throughout the month of July to compete for cash prizes and the position of High Roller.
After spending a day with the participants, one could see why participants join in on the fun. The league keeps the seniors active, increases their knowledge of 'new-age technology' and is just plain fun.
This season's teams include the Rocky Ridge Rockin Rollers, the Homewood Wonder Bowlers, the Rocky Ridge Rockettes, the Homewood Bluebirds, the Homewood Strickers, the Homewood Golden Pins and the St. Martin's in the Pines Champions.
