A lot.

Maybe the reason is his love

of the game, or perhaps that

the game was late coming into

his life.

He was never in a bowling

His career started at the old

If they ever had a contest to

would go to Calvert. He bowled

his first year there and has

bowled there ever since.

“I had a 146 average that

first year and have carried a

There are many times in

this old life that it pays handsomely

to be in the right place

at the right time.

AMF Showplace Garland

would certainly know about


The center would not wish

any misfortune on anybody,

but the closing of two centers,

Big Town and Jupiter, certainly

gave Showplace a strong boost.

They did not go out wishing

any bad luck on the two

centers which have had to close

shop recently, but have enjoyed

the good times from gaining

so many new bowlers to their


Most of the bowlers from

Big Town and Jupiter have

landed at Showplace.

Showplace had room for all.

And the bowlers have no other

place to go unless they want to

travel more. And most bowlers

do not care for that.

Here’s hoping that Showplace

enjoys its new bowlers

and that the new bowlers are

happy with their new homes.

* * *

So here we go again with

another summer.

Personally I have never understood

why so many bowlers

do not bowl in the summer.

In the old days it was

because it was too hot.

Now, however, bowling

centers are great places to stay


* * *

The word is that there

is talk about a mixed travel

league being organized. That

would be nice.

Karen Hoyle

This week’s high woman is

Karen Hoyle with a 213-247-

300 for a 760 series at Forum

Lanes. Karen has a son, Mike

(Fig) who is a great bowler and

daughter who doesn’t bowl.

Her real bowling hero is her

husband, Don, though.

What is your high series?

This is my high. My previous

high was 720, pretty amazing.

How many 300’s have you

bowled? This is my first 300. I

had 21 strikes in a row to finish

the night. I had 30 strikes

in the series.

What ball did you throw?

Ebonite Mission. I didn’t like it

right out of the box, but I had

Don shine it up and now it’s

working great.

Who drills your balls? Rich

Snyder, he’s my ball guy, he’s


What is your all-time favorite

bowling ball? I really liked the

Hammer Hot Sauce.

What is your average in the

Twilight league? 193.

What is your all-time high

average? 190.

How long have you been

bowling? Forever. I started in

1973, had some people work

with me and I am always

trying to improve.

Who is your favorite pro

bowler? It used to be Earl Anthony,

but my current favorite

is Walter Ray Williams. I

like how he is a down and in

player, really accurate and an

all-around nice guy. I bowled

with him in the Quaker State

Pro-am years ago.

Most memorable bowling

moment? I think this was it.

I didn’t really get nervous till

I got to the ninth frame, the

last shot was really good, and

I turned around and screamed.

I think they heard me all the

way to Fort Worth.

How many leagues do bowl?

I usually average three and

Don and I bowl lots of tournaments

on the weekends.

Other thoughts on the big

night? I had really been throwing

the ball good, trying to

slow my feet down and everything

just clicked that night. I

was so shocked to strike on 30

of 36 shots.

Karen’s tip of the week: No

matter how old you are, just

keep practicing and it will

happen for you. Keep your

feet slow and keep a positive

attitude and you will do great.

Terri Trefger

Last week’s high woman

was Terri Trefger with a

286/744 series at Brunswick


Terri and her family moved

to Texas in 2005 from Anaheim

Hills, CA, to be with family.

She has owned an embroidery

company called TNT Embroidery

since 2001.

THE BOWLING NEWS | Thursday, June 24, 2010 | Page 3

What is your high series?


How many 300’s have you

bowled? None. My high game

is 298.

What ball did you throw?

A Brunswick HP. It’s a ball I

haven’t used in a while, but it

has been working really well.

The USBC Nationals as

experienced by the Ballard’s

Bowling Solutions #3 team

By Clint Dacy

One of my favorite tournaments

of the year is the USBC

Nationals. It serves as a time to

bowl with my friends in a very

competitive environment on a

very challenging condition.

This year’s tournament

was held in Reno, NV, at the

National Bowling Stadium. If

you have never made the trip

out there you really should go

and check it out if you get the


My Ballard’s Bowling Solutions

#3 team has now been

together for four years, and our

goal was to put a team together

that we could take every year

and be competitive.

I think we have finally put

together a good mix of players

who can work together to

break down a lane properly.

My teammates are David

Smith, Brad Hunter, Terry

Taylor, and Brett Cooper.

The first couple of years we

bowled well, but struggled to

score. Now that we are in our

fourth year we are starting

to understand how to break

down the lanes properly, and it

reflected with our score.

The key is to get everyone

playing in the same zone to

build a track in the lane. This

can be very difficult if you get

matched up with the wrong

team on your pair.

Plastic balls are your worst

enemy at nationals. There is

always a heavy volume of oil

on the lane, and plastic balls

only push oil down the lane

causing tighter back ends and

erratic hook spots.

What you want to do is to

use balls with some surface

that will soak up oil, and by

playing in the same spot on

the lane your team can build a

tunnel to the pocket.

With four of our team members

being right handed, we all

started off playing around 12 at

the arrows with a break point

around nine down the lane at

the tracer.

The tracer is a dash at about

45 to 50 feet down the lane

that can be used as a target for

your breakpoint.

For the last two years the

tracer or a board right seems to

be the proper placement for a

successful shot.

In team we missed several

easy spares the first game and

shot 968. It’s very easy to bowl

a bad game on the fresh at

nationals so we were pretty

satisfied with that.

After seeing our shot open

up to 15 to 10 we began bowling

very well and shot 1128 the

second game.

In our last game the back

ends got a hair tighter and a

couple of errant shots cost us

a shot at 1100. We ended up

shooting 1062 the last game

for a 3158 team series, which

currently is in 55th place.

Our scores were Clint Dacy

621, Brad Hunter 566, David

Smith 596, Terry Taylor 693,

Brett Cooper 682.

In doubles we were fortunate

as it seemed that the

people who bowled the team

event before us were able to

adequately break down the

lanes and we all bowled pretty


My doubles partner Hunter

shot 656 and I shot 676 for 1332

doubles score which is currently

in 106th place. We both felt

it could have been a lot more,

as I am sure everyone does, but

overall I think we were both

happy to have bowled well


We were able to get deep

into the lane and bounce it off

the tracer down the lane at the

10th board and still able to get

it back to the pocket. Misses

left also skated to the hole so

we had a good amount of room

to play with.

With team and doubles a

success we were ready to go

into singles and have ourselves

a big all events score.

We crossed with David

Smith and Brett Cooper and

as always they both had solid

sets. Brett is like a machine

and he bowled well the whole

tournament. In doubles Brett

shot 642 and David shot 603 for

a 1245 series.

Unfortunately in our singles

event we caught a pair that

had previously had multiple

people throwing plastic so

there was oil everywhere and

we all struggled the first game

of singles with Brett being high

with 207 and everyone else

was below 185.

The ball I was throwing in

doubles was skidding too far

down the lane and every mistake

I made paid the ultimate

price. I split eight times in

two games for a score of 133

followed up by a 147.

I jokingly told my teammates

that it only took me 22

frames to get to 300. Everyone

else seemed to find their

groove in game two, but I

struggled for a 147 and well

on my way to my first sub 500

series in a long time.

Brett shot 633, David shot

612, and Brad had a nice couple

of games and ended with a 647


Overall it was a great

experience and I look forward

to bowling nationals every

year. Maybe with a couple of

more years together we can

make a run at an eagle, or at

least pound the senior brackets

when David and Brad mature a

little more.

Earl Anthony

Memorial Scholarship

recipients announced

Five students have been

selected to receive a United

States Bowling Congress Earl

Anthony Memorial Scholarship

based on their community

service and academic


Each of the USBC bowlers

will receive a $5,000 scholarship.

Four of the recipients are

recent high school graduates,

while the other is a first-year

college student.

The scholarship recipients


Jessica Ash, Corona, CA,

Angela Kaczowka,

Youngstown, OH,

Joanna Loewen, Wichita,


Joe Phillips, Fond du Lac,


Gregory Pizl II, Antigo,


Ash was valedictorian of the

class that recently graduated

from La Sierra High School.

Her volunteer activities include

working at an animal hospital

and a local elementary school.

In her application, Ash said

bowling has been a part of

her family from the time

her grandfather set pins as a


The two most important

things I have learned from

bowling are how to be part

of a team and what my place

on that team is,” Ash wrote.

“Though it may seem trivial,

this type of interaction helps to

prepare us for those which will

occur in college, in the work

place, and even in our own

personal lives.”

Kaczowka, the valedictorian

Lane Laughter

of the 2010 Boardman High

School class, was a four-year

member of the bowling

team and a member of the

marching/concert band. She

said bowling has taught her

patience, good sportsmanship

and discipline.

Bowling also has taught me

that you are allowed to have

bad days,” Kaczowka wrote in

her application.

“Sometimes the pins just

don’t fall the way you may

hope. This is a lesson that can

be applied to life.”

A recent graduate of Wichita

High School North, Loewen

was the school newspaper’s

editor and the National Honor

Society president. She volunteered

with Big Brothers/Big

Sisters and Bowl for Kids Sake.

A four-year member of the

bowling team, she recalled

how she started in the sport of

bowling just before her freshman

year and how she did not

get to bowl in many matches

early in her high school career.

“Each day I had to make

the choice to continue and not

let myself or my team down,”

Loewen said.

“Through pressing on, I

gained knowledge and skill in

the sport. A few years later, I

was able to help my team to

multiple match and tournament


Phillips was valedictorian

of the St. Mary’s Springs High

School Class of 2010. In

addition to being a member of

the school’s bowling team, he

was active in the Performing

Arts Club and concert chorus.

He had almost 1,700 hours of

community service during his

high school career, including

work at St. Agnes Hospital

and taking part in the Salvation

Army Operation Back To

School program that assisted

underprivileged children with

school supplies.

“I have always tried to make

service a priority in my life,”

Phillips said. “I have gained

valuable lessons from service

such as keeping my problems

in perspective as opposed to

others who are struggling for

the basics of life.”

As a freshman at Viterbo

University during the 2009-10

school year, Pizl was named to

the National Collegiate Bowling

Coaches Association Academic

All-America Team. He is a

USBC Bronze coach and has

worked with Special Olympics

bowling events and clinics for

his local youth programs. He

has helped with fundraising for

the Langlade County Cancer

Center and the Boys and Girls


“Through bowling, I have

learned that with dedication,

research, preparation and

practice, success will follow,”

wrote Pizl in his application.

The Earl Anthony Memorial

Scholarships are presented in

honor of legendary bowling

professional Earl Anthony, one

of the great ambassadors of

the sport who was dedicated to

For the first time the official

Hall of Fame inductions of new

United States Bowling Congress

hall members were held

outdoors at the International

Bowling Campus in Arlington,


Some say the event was held

outside to keep the featured

honoree, Marshall Holman,


One one of the most controversial

bowlers on tour, he also

was hailed as one of the best,

among his 22 titles being two

PBA Tournaments of Champions

and a pair of U.S. Open

crowns as well as one of the

top 10 money winners for 11

seasons and Player of the Year


All this came despite suspensions,

disagreements with

rules that at times kept him out

of action and competition that

pit him against Earl Anthony

and Mark Roth in the prime of

their glory days.

Holman quickly became

known as the Medford Meteor

after his home town in Oregon

and for his fiery and unpredict-

able actions. It is difficult to

determine if Holman was as

ill mannered as it seemed

or whether it was part of a

mind set and style guaranteed

to gain attention and upset


The PBA Tour of Holman’s

era was a far cry from later

years. Bowling was the new

kid pro sport on the rise with

TV ratings in the clouds, and

the sport took its role seriously.

The night before a live TV

final the qualifiers, usually

five, went through a rigorous

check list. They presented the

clothes they were going to

wear, slacks, shirts, even shoes

and socks. Bowlers had the

choice of colors based on their

qualifying finish.

In addition the PBA coordinator

checked to make sure

their head, sideburn and chin

hair were within the limits

formulated by PBA officials

and the players tournament

committee. Some of the rules

seemed so stringent, they

seemed silly but the sponsors

loved rigid standards.

So did TV producers and

directors who were amazed

when the biggest names in the

game agreed to almost any

request for special interviews

or instruction pieces.

But as time went on Guppy

Troup wore his tailor-made

pants, each leg a different color

and Ernie Schlegel came up

with his tux outfits, his custom

buttons and the hair grew

longer and from everywhere.

And Holman? Well, Holman

was Holman. He yelled.

He grimaced. He snarled. He

kicked at bowling devils only

he seemed to see and he bewildered

opponents and audiences

with bodily gestures that defied

definition but defined a new


These days, Holman looks

back in amusement, creating

more discussion as to whether

he was the bad boy he seemed.

“I didn’t know what I was

doing until after I did it,”

recalls Holman.

He hit bowling center walls

with his bowling hand more

than once or twice. His hand

lost every time. But he always

gave the fans a show beyond

the athletic talents displayed

by so many. In the ballot to

determine the 50 greatest pro

bowlers of all-time, he finished

ninth. His actions gave his

game and the pro game the

little extra to take some of the

robot like image to the human


At 55 he made the USBC

Hall, 20 years after he made

the PBA Hall the first year he

was eligible. Where is Holman

now? He still lives in his home

area, does an outstanding job

as color man when TV bowling

shows give him a second look.

But his main enterprises

are the income tax preparation

franchises he and his wife

operate. Holman is the expert

at promotion and public relations

in an area where he is a

sports legend.

And who can argue his

expertise at numbers and skill

in gaining people’s attention.

High Pot with a Twist league? It

is 198.

What is your all-time high

average? 211.

How long have you been

bowling? I started bowling

when I was nine in Torrance,

CA. I stopped for about seven

years, got married, needed

something to do so I started

bowling again. My two girls

also bowled but found that it

took up their Saturdays, so

now they just bowl for fun.

Most memorable bowling

moment? When I shot my high

game of 298 in 2008, I had the

first 11 strikes but didn’t get

the 300.

How many leagues do you

bowl? I bowl in two leagues

and then sub in another on

occasion. I really like to bowl,

it can be more work than fun,

but I enjoy it.

Other thoughts on the big

night? I had to change balls due

to the ball I normally use had

a flat spot in it, so I ended up

having to throw the HP. Since

then, everything has been

going good.

Terri’s tip of the week: Don’t

get frustrated, it’s just a game!

Have fun while you’re doing it,

it’s easy to get frustrated when

things aren’t going right, but

just have fun.

good to beat Walter and

fortunately for me, when I hit

competing full time on the

PBA Women’s Series, as well

as, multiple other women’s and

even men’s events throughout

the year.

This new position will

require even more of her time

with travel to ensure the success

of many BPAA and USBC

run events.

“My long term goal is

to increase awareness and

participation of these events,

along with the potential of

developing more in the future,”

said Nation. “I am looking

forward to the opportunity to

be involved within the industry

and be able to be in touch with

our members one on one.”

Stefanie got her start into

the sport at age six when her

parents signed her and her

brother Keith up for Saturday

morning youth leagues.

It was more of a hobby for

her as she grew up as she was

more involved with sports

like volleyball, basketball and

cross country. It wasn’t until

her high school years when

she began to get much more

serious into bowling when at

age 15, she made Junior Team

USA for her first time.

“When I went to Junior

Gold in 1999 and made Junior

Team USA at 15, it was at that

moment I was hooked,” Nation

said of her first big moment. “I

had a taste of what elite junior

bowling was all about and

from that point I never looked


Like so many young bowlers,

she worked at a local

bowling center as she grew

up, and spent countless hours

after work practicing game

after game on different things,

working to get better.

She knew it would take a lot

of time and hard work to get

to the top of the sport amongst

the best where she wanted

to be and was willing and

motivated to do all it took.

“I started seeing results

after I started winning events

at the local and state levels and


“I will bowl as long as I can

stand up,” she said.

She said she had always

tried to make Hurst a familyoriented

center. She knows her

bowlers by first names.

She also knows the shoe

are always impressed with her

the past.

that kept me hungry for more,”

said Nation.

As a member of the bowling

team at the University of

Central Florida, Nation was a

four-year standout, capping

those years off as a 2006 All-

American. She used her time

at UCF to fully prepare her for

where she is at today, both as a

successful professional bowler

as well as with the USBC and


“I’ve been fortunate to have

gone to school and obtain a

bachelors and masters degree

and have made a decision that

at this point in my life, I can

give back to bowling in a different

way aside from actually

competing, hence my excitement

for this new position,”

said Nation about her time at

Central Florida.

It was all those times growing

up that prepared Nation for

her years competing amongst

the best women bowlers in the

world on the PBA Women’s


She wasted no time proving

that she belonged out

there when she won her first

title at the 2008 Pepsi Viper

Championship over Michelle

Feldman. Being her first

experience on live TV, she was

understandably very nervous,

but composed herself quite well

to capture the title.

“My mom and brother were

in the audience so that was

very comforting to know,” she

said of being on TV.

“Before I knew it I blinked

and we were in the 10th frame

and I knew I had won title. I

was overwhelmed with emotion

and I couldn’t hold back

the tears. It was very special

that my Grandma got to see

me win before she passed,”

she added. “She was always so

proud of me and I know even

now she’s still watching.”

After adding a second title

at the 2010 Early Anthony

Memorial Classic, which also

earned her a spot on the season

ending PBA Women’s Series

Showdown, where she finished

third, it was announced that

the PBA would not continue

the Women’s Series as part

of the many changes, leaving

the future as a professional

for Nation and other women’s

professionals very uncertain.

The future of women’s

bowling is definitely uncertain,

but we can always be hopeful,”

she said on future women’s

professional bowling.

In the mean time she will

keep herself busy with her new

position with BPAA, as well

as other things not related to


She’s currently training to

compete in a triathlon this July

with fellow Women’s Series

competitor Shannon O’Keefe, as

well as playing in a volleyball

league, and just spending some

much deserved time relaxing

with friends at home in Texas.

If and when women’s pro

bowling gets going again, look

for Nation to be right there

competing again as one of the

very best.

Why the love of bowling?

“It’s been my life,” he said.

“I just like it. “It’s something I

am good at and it’s nice to get

the respect of the guys I bowl


Fifteen or so years ago,

Calvert gave the PBA a short

whirl. He, Bob Benoit, Ken

Johnson, Robert Lawrence and

Jimmy Thompson traveled

together. Calvert cashed a little

but not for much.

As an amateur, he did win a

regional in Roswell.

“I think I was the first

amateur to win one,” he said.

He has finished well in

some other big-money events.

He won $15,000 in the Texas

State Scratch event in San

Antonio, and also won $10,000

in the Memorial Classic at

Showplace Euless.

Calvert said he thought he

would clean up after becoming

eligible for SASBA.

“I found out that those guys

are good,” he said. “They can

really bowl.

He has won only once, but

hopes to do better soon. He has

had five seconds.

He has been bowling in

SASBA, his favorite competition,

for 11 years. He and Mike

Lynch make many of the trips


Calvert doesn’t like the way

bowling is going. He feels it is

getting too easy with the new

balls and conditions.

“It used to be something

when you bowled a 300,” he

said. “Now everybody is throwing

them, It is no big deal.”

“Bowlers who used to average

195 are now carrying 215.”

I would like to start off by

saying that I am certainly no

expert on the rough seas. As a

matter of fact I am not comfortable

getting into the ocean on a

beach without a life jacket.

However, I am having a

really hard time understanding

how parents can let their 16year-old

daughter sail around

the world by herself.

If you have not heard the

story, a 16 year old girl from

California was attempting

to sail around the world by

herself when her sail boat ran

into problems in extremely

high seas and forced her to call

for help.

It took almost two days to

get to her, but finally they were

able to rescue her.

As fortunate as they were to

not lose their daughter, I can’t

for the life of me understand

why they would allow her to

do this. I’ve seen Gilligan’s

Island and Castaway so I know

what can happen at sea.

This young lady was very

fortunate to still be alive. I

hope she and her parents have

learned their lesson and they

don’t try this again.

Las Vegas and Reno are

truly amazing places. The

change in people as they

cross the Nevada border is


Of course by people I mean

me and most everyone else.

Nevada is the only place

where you literally throw

money around like it doesn’t

matter. When you are gambling

in Nevada you forget all about

how much things cost or how

much you have in front of you,

after all they are only chips,


I wish they would let me

place my wagers with bills. I

would like to double down my

water bill please. Better yet a

five coin play on a slot machine

is one and a half five layer

burritos from Taco Bell.

It is also funny how much

people will tip a hot dealer

while only tipping the waitress

or the bell hop a dollar. The

bell hop just carried six bowling

balls, your dirty skibbies,

and the rest of your luggage

and all he gets is a couple of

bucks, but a dealer deals you a

blackjack, that you would have

gotten anyway, and he gets a

10 spot.

Another Nevada thing is the

food. I have been trying to lose

a few pounds for a while, but

little did I know that all I had

to do was go to Reno.

I was standing at the Silver

Legacy with Lee Vanderhoef

and he mentioned that he had

not eaten all day. I then realized

that I myself had not eaten

since the night before. It was

almost 24 hours without eating

when normally I can’t go four


And for those thinking it,

no, moving to Reno is not the

answer to my losing weight.

The NBA season has come

to an end and just like last

year, the Los Angeles Lakers

are your NBA Champions.

As far as I was concerned I

could really care less who won

this series (with the exception

of game fives first half, after all

I was in Reno).

I really don’t like either

team so the outcome was pointless

to me, but I did want to see

a good series. Fortunately that’s

what we got, as game seven

went down to the final seconds

and the Lakers beat the Celtics

by four for the NBA title.

The Lakers are truly a team

of second chances and they

should be humbled by the

experience. Each of the big four

could have easily been in jail,

out of the league, or buried on

a bad team so I hope they can

all appreciate this victory.

I thought I would take a

moment to update the progress

of our precious little gem

Lexi. While I was out of town

bowling, Nikki decided to go to

the pet store to replace the bark

collar that Lexi somehow got

off of her neck and chewed up.

While at the pet store she

discovered a toy that you put

peanut butter into and the dog

has to do some work to get it


Nikki called me all excited

that it was working great and

that the dogs were occupied for

hours licking peanut butter out

of this toy.

The pet store clerk then told

her that she could put it in the

freezer and it would last even


So she filled the toys with

peanut butter and put them in

the freezer overnight. When

she woke up the next morning

Lexi was eating the peanut

butter out of the toy. The only

problem is that Nikki didn’t get

the toy out of the freezer for


Yep, you guessed it. Lexi

somehow opened the freezer

and got it out herself. That dog

is the most amazing magician

I’ve ever seen.

How can such a cute looking

dog be such a pain in the

rump? I really wish I would

have had a camera setup to see

that one.
