At Hanover Bowling Centre, Dan served as a pin chaser, janitor, counter person and head mechanic before moving to Colony Park Lanes as a mechanic.

Rhoads was a very active bowler for more than 30 years. She competed in the Daytimers, Sunday Night Mixed and Monday Night Ladies leagues at Lincolnway, the Mixed Birds League at Weiglestown, Hi-Lo and Junior/Senior leagues at Suburban Bowlerama and the Nut League at Colony Park Lanes North. During that time, Shirley served as president of the Daytimers and Sunday Night Mixed leagues. Big games and high averages were uncommon, particularly for women, when she was at her peak in the 1960s and 1970s.
