On December 10th and

11th at Cowtown Bowling

Palace, proprietor Jamie Brooks

revived and hosted the storied

Red River Doubles tournament

after not being held for much

of the past decade, and by

early evening on Saturday, the

team of Nathan Bohr and Jake

Peters out of Wichita, Kansas

emerged victorious, defeating

Dino Castillo and Derek Eoff in

the second of a 2-match final

round.

Bohr and Peters conquered

Bob Kielich moved into fifth

in the Bowler of the Year standings

with the NABI tournament

win at AMF Richardson Dec.

11-12.

Kielich, a ten-year member,

accomplished his goal by

defeating Ken Johns in the

close title match, 217-215 for

his sixth NABI title, but first

one in the last three years.

On his way to the final

game, Kielich eliminated Don

Crawford, 237-184, and Torris

Jackson, 190-185.

Johns defeated Walter

Joseph Jr., 228-213, and Tony

Mathis, 229-221, to earn the

right to meet Kielich for the

the top prize of $2500 for the

win. Castillo and Eoff pocketed

$1600 for second.

The tournament is so fun

to bowl because of the pattern

and format,” Bohr said. “While

it would have been nice to have

a larger field, I don’t think the

quality of bowlers was lacking

at all.”

“Winning this tournament

will always rank highly on my

list of accomplishments,” He

added.

The tournament got started

early Friday evening with a

Calcutta and then a random

draw by all teams for lane

assignments. Early on it was

2010 a Year in Review

Well 2010 is now in the

books, so I thought it would be

a good time to recap some of

the big events of the year, and

things to watch out for in 2011.

Our daughter, Tori, turned

three years old, and as “they”

have always said it really

does get more fun every day.

I find myself not wanting

to leave the house because

I just want to spend every

second I can with her.

DFW Bowling’s favorite son,

Del Ballard, Jr. has battled

tonsil cancer this year and

like he has always done, he

won. Now he is un-patiently

waiting to be able to eat real

food again.

Walter Ray Williams, Jr.

won PBA Player of the Year

honors for the seventh time,

but surprisingly I had to look

it up because I had no idea

who won, there is something

wrong with that.

Kelly Kulick won the PBA

Tournament of Champions,

becoming the first female

to ever win a national PBA

Event, but not just any event,

the biggest event of the

year. People outside of the

sport were more surprised

than those inside the sport.

I interviewed her after her

Women’s US Open victory

and found her to be very

open, engaging, thoughtful

and intelligent. Bowling as a

whole should try to use her

as a spokesperson.

Through the first 5 events

of the PBA Season, which

was comprised of the World

Series of Bowling, there are

only 7 players that have

earned more than $10k; that

is scary and concerns me as

a bowling fan that the money

is so scarce.

With that being said, Wendy

Macpherson made over

$157,000 in a recent event in

Japan; I am still waiting to

get a chance to talk to her

about that. She has always

bowled events in Japan and I

guess there is some money to

be made over there.

The Red River Doubles

tournament made a comeback

at Cowtown Bowling

Palace thanks to Jamie

Brooks. What great fun it

was to bowl on difficult lane

conditions, I can only wish

that those types of tournaments

were more prevalent

in the SW area.

Long-time Bowling News

Feature Editor Jim Woodruff

moved to Costa Rica and is

trying to adapt to a different

culture.

After 10 years, I finally won

the Super Bowl in my Fantasy

Football league, beating

the Dino Castillo/Greg Derrick

team because Michael

Vick had an off night. It felt

FOUNDED AND PUBLISHED BY JOE GENNARO FROM 1956-2009

almost like winning the real

Super Bowl.

What to watch in 2011

First and foremost the PBA

Tournament of Champions,

Jan. 15-22 in Las Vegas. The

tournament will feature a

$1 Million prize fund, with

$250,000 going to first place.

The event is open to any

PBA member who has EVER

won a PBA event, National or

Regional, it should be one of

the most anticipated tournaments

of all time. I would

expect lots of local players

to be in this tournament

due to the fact it is much

more open than ever before.

I will be rooting for all of

our local guys and gals, but

specifically I will be rooting

for Lonnie Waliczek. Oh, and

did I mention the TV show

will be broadcast on ABC,

with Nelson Burton, Jr…….it

feels like 1985 again.

More great things from The

Bowling News, we had a very

successful year, and hope

to keep building the paper

into everything you would

like for it to be. Adding new

Bowling Centers outside the

DFW area has been key and

has hopefully added the kind

of content you want from the

number 1 name in bowling

news. Thanks and talk to

you soon.

Reggie Riley

This week’s high man

is Reggie Riley with a 269-

296-279 for an 844 series at

Marquee Lanes in Monticello,

Arkansas. Reggie is the coowner

of Marquee Lanes along

with Josh Culpepper, they have

owned the center for 2 years

now. Reggie has two children

Kyrah and Andrew.

What is your high series?

856, I have bowled 12 800’s.

How many 300’s have you

bowled? 6

Thoughts on your big night?

I had a great reaction and great

carry, the pair I bowled on is

notorious for bad carry on the

10’s and 7’s, but I was able to

get the carry. I only had to

move two or three boards the

whole night which was key.

What ball did you throw?

Ebonite Mission 2.0, it is a

much stronger ball than the

original Mission. I shot the 856

series with the original Mission,

Kelly Kulick sold that ball

after winning the Tournament

of Champions.

Who drills your balls? Steve

Adams at the Professor Pro

Shop at Marquee Lanes.

What is your all-time favorite

bowling ball? The 9-Series

Yellow Dot Bleeder, The AMF

Angle and from the reactive

era, the Ebonite Playmaker.

What is your average in this

league? 242

What is your all-time high

average? 233

How long have you been

bowling? Since 1969, both of my

parents bowled. I went to the

bowl with my mom when she

bowled the housewives league

at Golden Gate Lanes in El

Cerrito, CA.

Who is your favorite pro

bowler? The most influential

would be Mark Roth and Marshall

Holman. Billy Hardwick

was always one of my favorites,

but present day it would be

Norm Duke. His versatility is

really second to none, very few

bowlers can go from straight to

hooking it like he can.

Most memorable bowling moment?

Bowling an honor score

in front of my kids and having

my daughter announce it over

the loud-speaker. My daughter

Kyrah works the counter and

she announced that “my daddy

shot 300”.

Reggie’s tip of the week:

Listen to the advice of other

people. It doesn’t take a pro

to give good advice, you may

see something in a team-mates

game that will work for you

game. Another key is get a ball

driller that you trust and takes

good care of your equipment.

The shot was fine throughout,”

Said second place finisher

Castillo. “It was challenging

from the start and with no

re-oil during, it only became

tougher to get to the pocket

and made shot making all that

much more important.”

Bohr and Peters earned

their spot in the finals by going

unbeaten through the winner’s

brackets, defeating Castillo and

Eoff to send them to the loser’s

bracket, and forcing their challenger

to defeat them twice in

order to win. Castillo and Eoff

defeated 3rd place finishers

Chris Castro and Steven Hauk

to earn the rematch with Bohr

and Peters, and sending Castro

and Hauk home with $1100 for

third.

Other cashers were Tony

Franklin and Will Haverland in

4th place for $700, and Blake

Starr and Brett Erickson for

$600.

One of the big highlights of

the event was collegiate bowler

Geoffrey Young, who bowled a

300 game in the middle rounds

against Chris Barnes and Chad

Murphy. Barnes also gave 300

a run in round one with a front

10 effort before a split on the

11th ball ended that run.

“Geoffrey was playing a

fall back shot at the 25 board

and was dead flush every

shot,” Said Young’s partner

Jack Zuniga. “It was very

impressive.”

Tournament director Jamie

Brooks was happy with the

turnout and the way the

tournament went for its first

time back.

“I thought that there was

some quality bowling and

many quality games being

bowled out there during the

two days,” said Brooks. “I was

satisfied with the turnout for

the first time back, it’s just a

start.”

“I got the feeling that

everyone seemed to have a

good time and want to do it

again, so we are going to do it

again May 20th and 21st of this

year,” He added.

“Hopefully we can get

more exposure and draw more

participation for the future to

a tournament with such great

history,” added Castillo. “I hope

it can fully regain its entire

luster from the past.”

THE ‘T’ WORD

The More You Train, the

Luckier You Get!

Train? What a drag! But

it doesn’t have to be. Even

the folks you see on TV on

Sundays train. If you train the

right skills in the right method,

you’ll see a marked improvement

in your game. Here are

some guidelines that should

help:

Have goal directed

training sessions. Train with a

purpose.

Train to learn something

or improve something.

Either train OR keep

score. Don't do both. The only

reason to ever keep score

when you train is if you are

training for certain situations:

Chris Slone was second to none

as he rolled two honor scores last

week in the Sunday Fun Times

league with 299/829 game and

series at AMF Garland.

Arvese McGraw fronted distaff

scoring with a chart-topping

254-212-300 = 766 TGIF outing

that including the perfecto.

Mike Bressler had a hot hand

as he rolled a 299 and 826 series,

with Timothy Crowe not far behind

with the 813 honor score.

visualizing/imagining competitive

pressure or pacing your

shots to match play rhythm.

Otherwise, you will only be

distracted from your real training

goal.

If your center has shadow

or 'no pin' bowling available,

use it. Some AMF equipped

houses can do this. The

Brunswick GSX-80 machines

are a dream for the coach and

anyone who really wants to

improve their game. They can

set up any combination of pins

for you to shoot over and over

as well as using no pins, the

best kind of training. I believe

they are available at Rowlett

Bowl-A-Rama in the DFW area.

Bowling is often perceived

as a results-oriented sport.

Silly. We can’t control the

results, only the process. When

the pins are up, regardless of

what you are working on, it

can be hard to ignore what

happens at the pin deck. If

there are no pins, it’s much

easier to focus on ball reaction,

reading breakpoints, watching

the ball through the deck, etc.

Much more productive.

Rest frequently. You'll

never be in a competitive

situation where you throw

ball after ball as soon as it

comes from the ball return.

Pace yourself. A good practice

session is not defined by how

much you sweat. If you find

yourself bowling better at your

faster paced training sessions,

you will have programmed

yourself to fail in the slower

paced league and tournament

situations.

Have no parameters on

the length of time you train.

You should train as long as

you can pay attention. You will

only magnify your errors if you

train longer than you're sharp.

Being a Mad Scientist

When you train, experiment.

You can’t know

how moving your wrist ¼” in

the stance or shortening your

first step is going to affect

your game until you try it

in training. Keeping in mind

that the goal in bowling is

to knock down as many pins

as possible with as few balls,

you should figure out as many

different ways to make this

happen as you can. Don’t get

locked into the ‘way you bowl’.

Training is the time to remain

open-minded. Let your mind

be a blank slate on which

your training session writes

Happy New Year to all

and hopefully you enjoyed

your time off while spending

time with family and friends.

I know I sure did. Although

Christmas is a fun time of

year there is a part of me that

is ready for the holidays to be

over so we can return to our

normal schedules.

Last week was a difficult

week for me as I made the

decision that I would begin

looking for a new car. I have

driven my 2002 Chevy Tahoe

for several years, but with gas

prices rising again, and my

odometer at over 160,000 miles,

I decided that now was time

to trade it in. I really loved

my truck and as sentimental

as it was for me, it had to go.

A couple of years ago I rented

a Mazda3 when I went to

Albuquerque for a regional and

I really liked it. So I decided

that I wouldn’t mind getting

one of those so I started looking

for a good deal on the 2010

closeouts, and low and behold I

got one. However, the real story

here is the car buying process.

Although many things have

changed in our world, buying

Believe. Bowl. Follow Through.

a car has not. Although I’ve

had my car for a while I have

assisted several others in the

car buying process so I know

a little about how the game

is played. Here are a few tips

that will help you if you decide

to purchase a new car. First,

never pay the sticker price on

anything. You must realize that

every facet of the car buying

experience is negotiable. This

includes the car, the trade in,

and even the extended warranty.

Second never negotiate

the monthly payment of the

car. There are so many variables

to the car buying process

that they can tweak to lower

the monthly payment such

as the interest rate, the down

payment, and length of the

loan. All of these will lower the

monthly payment, but you may

still be paying too much for the

car. Instead find a credit union

who is offering low interest

rates, and even if you don’t get

the interest rate, tell the dealer

that you do so you can negotiate

the price of the car instead.

Finally, don’t get pressured into

a lot of extras. Although they

make it sound like the extended

warranty is a life saver, we

all know how difficult it can be

to get something fixed under

warranty. Typically you have

36,000 miles anyway so really

you are paying $2000 to protect

you for 64000 miles after the

original warranty. In today’s

cars with all the technology I

would understand getting the

extended warranty, but since

I’m a bowler and a little bit of

a gambler; I will pass. If you

do decide to get the extended

warranty at least negotiate the

price as low as you can. All

in all I’m happy with my deal

and very happy that my $60 fill

ups will go down to $35 for the

same amount of traveled miles.

With one week to go in the

NFL season it would appear

that several of the Dacestronamous

predictions have come

true. First Dacestronamous

predicted that Sam Bradford

would throw more touchdowns

that Brett Favre, and to date

Bradford has 18 and Favre

only 11. I also predicted that

Favre would not be able to

stay healthy and finish the

season, and that one came true

as well. I went out on a limb

with predicting that Ladanian

Tomlinson would rush for 1000

yards, and with 86 yards in

his final game he will do just

that. Although I was solid on

those three predictions I must

say that the other two were not

close. Although the Cowboys

will not reach the NFC Championship

game it’s still possible

for the New Orleans Saints

to beat the Baltimore Ravens

for the Super Bowl. My worst

prediction of all was the success

of Donovan McNabb and

the Washington Redskins. They

were my wild card pick for the

NFC, and what a wild ride is

what it’s been. I don’t know

what it is about good coaches

going to Washington, and then

turning into buffoons!

SPOTLIGHT

Continued from Page 3

Australia, and I bowled 80

games in 4 days for the Australian

Masters, on a tough,

flat pattern. So after bowling

on that condition and bowling

so many games, I was pretty

sharp when I got back home.

What is your all-time

favorite movie? Chariots of Fire

would have to be one of my

favorites. I like the fact that

there is a conflict between the

main characters’ passion for

running and his passion for

God. He felt that God gave him

this gift to run, and he felt

God was pleased when he was

running.

What is your favorite restaurant?

I like so many, but I’m

simple too, I like Applebee’s

and Olive Garden.

Where did you take your

best vacation? We just recently

had our best vacation, Steve

and I went back to Australia

a few months ago. I got to

see it with fresh eyes since it

was the first time in 6 years

that we had been back. It’s so

beautiful, anything you want,

Australia has it.

What is your favorite piece of

technology? I am very technology

challenged, but I really

enjoy my Bose Earphones, my

brother was embarrassed by

what I was using to listen to

music so he got me those. That

is about as technical as I can

get.

If you were the commissioner

of all things bowling for

a day what would you change?

I would like to see bowling

promote from within the

ranks. I think we need to make

bowling be what it is, not try

to be something else. I don’t

like bringing in a big wheel

from outside of the bowling

industry, who has no interest

in bowling and have them try

to project a different image

for the sport. You must have a

passion for bowling in order for

it to be successful.

Favorite hobby besides bowling?

I’m an artist, and this year

my goal is to get some pieces

into a show and get accepted,

I just need to muster up the

courage to try, because there

are so many great artists out

here.

Debbie Ensminger

Last week’s high woman

was Debbie Ensminger who

shot 267-255-278 = 800 for

an 800 series in the High

Points League at Brunswick

Zone Watagua. Debbie does

collections for large companies

in Fort Worth for the last 11

years.

What is your high series?

817 in the 90’s, this is my third

800, I shot my second 800

about 6 months ago in SASBA.

How many 300’s have you

bowled? 6

Thoughts on your big night?

I have been bowling really

good lately, probably better

now than I ever have. I attribute

a lot of it to equipment

that I have been using. I have

been using the Bounty Hunter

by 900 Global, and only have

used 900 Global balls for the

last year. I knew that I needed

278 the last game to make 800,

and put all three shots in the

tenth in the pocket.

What ball did you throw?

The Bounty Hunter, it doesn’t

over-react it has a very even

roll. I have a down and in

game and the lanes at Watauga

have been working well for my

game.

Who drills your balls? I use a

lot of my husband, Jim’s balls,

so when he is done with them,

I get the hand me downs, and

have Ballard Bowling Solutions

re-drill the thumbs.

What is your all-time

favorite bowling ball? It has to

be Bounty Hunter, but before

this the Brunswick Ultra was

my favorite.

What is your average in

this league? 220, the highest

average I have ever had.

What is your all-time high

average? I had a 215 average a

couple of years.

How long have you been

bowling? I started when I was

18 years old. I was bowling

with a group of friends one

night a week, and before I

knew it I was bowling 4 or 5

nights a week. I bowled professionally

for a few years, and

have bowled SASBA tournaments

for the last 5 years. My

husband Jim has really been

helping me improve by helping

my ball roll, and it has really

paid of in the last year.

Who is your favorite pro

bowler? Anne Marie Duggan,

she has always been a very

stable role model for me. She

is so consistent and so smooth

and such a competitor.

Most memorable bowling

moment? When I shot my first

300 game in like my fourth

Ladies Regional event in Port

Arthur. It got so quiet in there,

no one else was bowling. After

I struck on the last shot the

first person I saw was Rene

Fleming, and it was a really

memorable moment.

Debbie’s tip of the week:

Number one for is to have

fun and make sure you

stay focused. When I am in

tournaments I try to stay very

consistent and watch my ball

and read the lanes, but number

one is to have fun.

The quickest

and best

way to reach

people in

bowling–”

Sadie Hardin

Association has someone who

has done just that. Her name is

Sadie Hardin.

The retired school teacher

has been bowling for 37 years

and shows no signs of slowing

down. A member of the

association for 32 years she has

served as a director, vice-president

of the Killeen-Fort Hood

Woman’s Association, Sergeant

at Arms and president of the

Killeen Bowling Council.

Sadie served on the Achievement

Awards committee as

well as the Membership and

Tournament Committees.

While on the women’s association

she served on the

Special Events, hospitality and

legislative committees as well

as a member of the Transition

(Merger) Committee.

Sadie feels the merger was

the greatest thing to happen

for the associations. “There

is more cohesiveness with

everyone working toward one

common goal, this, therefore

gives better service to the

bowlers.”

She thinks the local association

is doing well; however,

she would like to see the board

members become more visible

to the bowlers. “They should

visit leagues more often, chat

with open bowlers and encourage

them to join leagues.” She

believes a more aggressive

manner of recruiting for local

tournaments would be better

than relying on intercom

announcements. She would

like to see more volunteers

recruited and used. Post

upcoming tournaments, local,

state and national, in each

center. Make use of bulletin

boards to inform everyone of

upcoming events.

While serving as a lane

representative for Phantom

Warrior Lanes she published a

monthly newsletter for seven

years highlighting tournaments,

leagues, high scores,

birthdays and anniversaries.

She also used the newsletter to

educate bowlers on rules and

rule changes.

Throughout her service to

the association she has earned

YOUNG WINS

Continued from Page 1

then after finishing the RR

Doubles late Saturday, made

his way back to Wichita so

that he could bowl the Hooker

Classic on Sunday. It was a

strong weekend for Young as

he had a 300 game and the

high series, with 750, on very

challenging lane conditions at

the Red River Doubles event,

then shot the high score at the

Hooker Classic.

The Hooker Classic was on

the Scorpion pattern, which is

a middle of the road pattern for

me, but I chose the right ball

from the git-go and it worked”,

said Young. He is a member

of the Brunswick Bowling ball

staff and used the Brunswick

Revolver for most of the event.

The opening match of the

Classic had Kristopher Prather

defeating Olivia Sandham,

with Sandham collecting

$100 for 5th. Prather then

defeated national PBA Champion

Lonnie Waliczek in a

close match, 213-212 with

Waliczek pocketing $120 for

4th. Erik Gulbrandson stopped

the hot-hand of Prather in the

semi-final match to get a shot

at Young for the title, Prather

picked up $150 for third. Young

proved too much too handle in

dispatching Gulbrandson in the

Championship match 247-184.

The final pair hooked a little

more so I ended up throwing

two different balls, and just

trying to stay up the back

of it and keep the pocket in

play,” added Young. He picked

up $700 for the win with

Gulbrandson grabbing $250 for

second place. The top five for

the event featured all former or

current WSU bowlers, with the

top three currently in school

at WSU. When asked about

his current hot-streak, Young

had a good idea of why he has

been bowling well, and why

some of his teammates have

been bowling well also, “a lot

of practice and team-work and

our motto is to worry about

the here and now, don’t worry

about the future or things you

can’t control.” Well it seems to

be working.

accommodate almost 190

teams! With the tremendous

event only weeks away, here is

some important info you will

need to know if participating

this year.

After looking at all options

and speaking with many

Active Duty entrants, we

have decided to relocate the

entire Active Duty division

to Orleans Bowling Center,

approximately 2 miles away

from Gold Coast.

This will give us 35 more

spots for the other divisions.

The Retired and Senior

divisions have already filled

their 4 squads so we had to

open up some spots. We did

not want to use any spots

allocated for the Active Duty

division. By making this

change, it will insure that no

teams will have to be turned

away. Although that is great

news, call and notify us if

you have a team not entered

yet at 1-800-257-6179.

The new schedule for Active

Duty at Orleans is: Singles

- Monday 3 pm Doubles

- Tuesday 3 pm Team

- Wednesday 8 am Free

Active Duty practice session

Monday 1 - 2 pm at Orleans

The Sunday Active Duty

Sweeper will still be held at

Gold Coast.

IMPORTANT - Here are

some changes and additions

you should know for all

divisions:

Storm will be selling the

Reign Supreme and the

Prodigy for $100 each, limit 2

of each per contestant. Storm

will be onsite at Gold Coast

and Orleans. They can take

ball orders and deliver to

Orleans.

work best when the heads are

dry?

Another good exercise

is to go back and forth with

your equipment with each shot.

Going back and forth between

balls is sometimes difficult

to do and usually the longer

you throw the more your

hand changes. It is therefore

important to feel confident

that you can go from ball to

ball without getting a different

feel and therefore a different

release. Thumb slugs give all

your balls a similar feel - critical

to a clean and consistent

release. Remember in this

exercise, you are only trying

to assure that you can release

every ball the way you want to

release it - your thumb doesn't

hang, the fingers don't feel too

tight, etc.

With all of your equipment,

play with different hand

positions. What does your ball

do when you stay behind it a

little longer than normal? Can

you throw it with end-over-end

roll? What happens if you do?

Can you lower your track?

Raise it? What does that do to

your reaction? What happens

at the pin deck? Can you feel

your ring finger? Your middle

finger? Do you get a different

roll or release when you

concentrate on these fingers?

There is so much to learn!

I’ll have more experiments

and maybe even some training

games for you next month.

his first PBA Tour television

appearance, starting the title

match with eight strikes

before converting a 4-7 spare

in the eighth frame in easily

defeating Sean Rash of Wichita,

Kan., 256-181. Rash had won

three consecutive matches

to reach the championship

contest.

“It’s pretty amazing. I’ve

worked a long time for this,”

Norton beamed. “It’s an

unbelievable, crazy feeling. I

was unconscious for a lot of

that match.”

The son of Professional

Virginia Norton earned his

opportunity to bowl as a

Rookie Scott Norton Wins First PBA Tour Title in Chameleon

Championship Young California attorney delivers near-perfect

opening statement in his television debut

my mother bowl, and I got to

see her on TV and wondered

what that would be like,” he

said. “I got to see her inducted

into both halls of fame, and

I always kinda dreamed and

hoped that I could do that

someday, too.”

The physical game he

learned under his mother’s

wing, and the mental game

he learned under Team USA

sports psychologist Dr. Dean

Hinitz after winning the 2000

U.S. Amateur Championship,

helped explain his composure

as he threw a near-perfect

game at Rash.

“I knew I could come out

here (on Tour) and compete,”

he said. “I knew I could make

shots, but sometimes that’s not

enough. It just happened to be

in the cards today that I was

able to make shots and have it

work out.

“Seriously, I don’t remember

half of that game. I just

remember getting up and

saying the same things to

myself, over and over. I told

myself I was going to hit my

target, execute and that set

the tone. I was really able to

stay within myself. I couldn’t

see anything to either side. I

really thought I was going to

have a problem with the lights

and people and the camera on

the ball return, but when we

got started, I didn’t see any

of that. All I saw was the lane

and the pins.

“When I got up in the ninth

frame, I really wasn’t thinking

about 300,” Norton said. “I

realized I was going to win

and that’s the only thing that

was going through my mind.

“Now I know I can compete

against these people,” he

added. “That show included an

amazing group of players who

are going to wind up in the

hall of fame. To be able to go

out there and beat them really

meant a lot to me. It really
