On a drizzly Friday evening, 6-year-old Duke Newsted was all smiles as he learned how to bowl on a Wii at Jayden Roberts’ Wii Bowling Tournament at Friendship Place Youth Center in Centralia. Nicole Henry and Jordan Roberts, Jayden’s brother, helped teach Duke how to use his hand to control, swing and release the virtual bowling ball. After a few practice swings, Duke was giggling and clapping as he knocked over virtual pins.
