Stirling Member Selling Business

STIRLING, ALBERTA, CANADA -- Five years ago, Reg Ellet, a member of the Lethbridge Alberta East Stake, conceived a product which would help seniors find recreation in an area many would never think they could.

Ellet, a graduate of the therapeutic recreation programme of the Lethbridge Community College, invented the Handi Lane Portable Bowling Alley five years ago as a college project. The inexpensive apparatus allows seniors with physical disabilities to enjoy a popular sport played by many others.

With a ramp at one end raised to waist level, even wheelchair-bound players can participate. Guided by dowels the length of the ramp, players can aim their bowling ball in nearly any possible way. Pins are restacked with an easy to use pin setter.

Ellet assures that the invention improves circulation, muscle strength, endurance, range of motion, fine motor co-ordination, attention span, concentration and memory. It has found buyers all over Southern Alberta, and even some outside.

Now the business is up for sale. Ellet is wanting to expand his career in therapeutic recreation and needs to sell the business to free up some more time. He hopes to pass it on to someone with marketing skills who can take the product worldwide.
