In the late 1980’s, Benny Senker moved to the Rio Grande Valley from Mexico City. He started off by drilling bowling balls in Mexico City and eventually opened his first pro shop in San Benito, Texas. Once he realized that bowling was taking off in the Upper Valley he decided to open a full service pro shop in McAllen, Texas.
He purchased Fiesta Lanes and decided to open the pro shop inside the bowling center. He then added 16 more lanes to the original building in the early 1990’s. Making Flamingo Bowl what it is today.
