Andy Digney opened the Digney Bowl on August 19, 1955 and passed the business onto his son Ernest who ran it until his son Bruce Digney took over in 1980. The Digney Bowl was located at 6521 Bonsor Avenue. The bowling league met every Saturday morning at the Digney bowling alley where there were a total of 32 teams (5 children per team) who bowled in shifts since there wasn't enough room for everyone to bowl at once. Paul Digney (the son of Dig Digney) helped out by emptying ashtrays.
