HAMMOND — Bowling fans who consistently watched the Professional Bowlers Association on ABC back in the 1970s and 1980s would remember Guppy Troup with his flamboyant personality and colorful trousers he wore while winning eight PBA national titles.

The Taylorsville, N.C. resident, and native of Edinburg, Scotland, was back in the region this weekend as the guest speaker at the 24th annual Greater Calumet Area Bowling Association Hall of Fame and Awards Banquet at Dynasty Banquets.
