Eddy Ullom, a self-described sports lover, had never heard of the Madison Senior Games until Bernie Schuurmans, the director of the local event, approached Ullom’s wife Paula about competing in the event last year.
“Bernie talked to my wife, who works at the courthouse here in Madison,” Ullom said. “He kind of hounded her a little bit, because he knew I bowled a couple nights a week in league. I also used to coach softball and baseball. I’ve always loved sports and being around them.”
