Meet John & April Dell, Charlene Wiege & Kelli Williams
Cariboo Bowl has been a part of the community for about as long as John Dell can remember. John was born in the Cariboo and has lived most of his life since in Williams Lake. He graduated from high school and started his professional life here.
John was considering a job in the forestry industry when the opportunity arose for him to purchase Cariboo Bowl in the late 1970’s. John had already worked for others for years, and decided that the idea of working for himself was appealing, so he bought the business in 1979 and has owned it ever since. John and his wife, April, have had fun getting to know people over the years who come in to bowl. “The great thing about working here,” John says, “is that people are always happy when they come in to bowl!”
John was also a hobby videographer in his early years, and as more and more people started asking him to film their events, he turned it into another business Signal Point Media.
He recently took on new business partners Kelli Williams and Charlene Wiege (pictured right) who will be managing Cariboo Bowl so that he can spend more time developing his videography business. John has loved working with the people of Williams Lake over the years and he is grateful for their support.
Recreational. Social. Active.
Cariboo Bowl has been providing the community of Williams Lake with strikingly good fun for more than 55 years. There’s no other game where people from age 3 to 93 can play together while enjoying a social atmosphere, good conversation and a little bit of friendly competition. For those who want more than just friendly competition, there are bowling leagues available for children, teens and adults (mixed leagues, ladies and seniors).
Cariboo Bowl is a licensed facility, so you can grab even a cold one during your game. For a fun twist, join Cariboo Bowl on Friday nights for “cosmic” bowling, complete with black lights and strobes. Cariboo Bowl is available for parties, corporate and team-building events and fundraisers.
Cariboo Bowl is a member of the Williams Lake Central Business Improvement Association and the Bowling Proprietors Association of Canada.
