Guam - The Guam National Guard kicked off their annual Tag Cup
2013 event with bowling at Central Lanes in Tamuning. Each team consists of 5
bowlers with a minimum of 1 female. Captain Arnold Arizala talked about this
year's bowling event, telling KUAM Sports, "The reason why we chose
bowling as the kickoff event is because it is one of the more popular events
for the Tag Cup. As you can see we have over 120 participants for this event.
One of the largest events that we have for the year and one of the more popular
events. Currently we have 23 teams from the Army Guard, Air Guard, Department
of Military Affairs and their spouses.
"The reason why we have this event is because it's not often
that we get together as a guard unit and a lot of times we are in our own area
doing our own work. So this allows us the opportunity to see each other and see
other guard members and their families. I would like to thank Central Lanes for
allowing us to participate in this event and all of their support and all of
the family members and guard members who are here today."
