In 1998, Jim Duchaney and his wife Carol Duchaney started a senior bowling league with 15 other friends from Barnstead. Carol Duchaney has since passed away but Jim Duchaney still comes to Boutwell’s Bowling in Concord every Thursday to bowl with the Year Rounders. Duchaney says they soon expanded the league to anyone who lives 100 miles out of Barnstead and that over the 15 years a total of 160 people have bowled in the league. Teams play a total of three games each week, and the top two teams face off in April. The league ends their year with a banquet in May.
