World Youth Championships

For the first time in the

history of the World Tenpin

Bowling Association World

Youth Championships, the

Junior Team USA boys and

girls swept the gold medals

in the team event Sunday in

Bangkok, Thailand.

Entering the medal round

as the fourth seed in both

divisions, the United States

took down Singapore in both

gold-medal matches to claim

the world titles. The U.S. boys

claimed the championship with

an 889-807 win, while the U.S.

girls won 850-799.

The victories Sunday makes

the United States the reigning

world champions in the team

event for men, women, boys

and girls for the first time.

The men won their gold medal

in 2010 in Munich, Germany,

while the women earned their

gold medal in 2011 in Hong

Kong.

In the boys gold-medal

match, Chris Via of Springfield,

Ohio, led Junior Team USA

with a 237 game. Andrew Koff

The Junior Team USA boys and girls swept the gold medals in the

team event.

Kent of Yakima, Wash., shot

212 and Zack Hattori of Las

Vegas fired 210.

The victory gave the Junior

Team USA boys program its

first win in the team event

since 2000 in Santo Domingo,

Dominican Republic.

"Coming in here with this

team, we knew we had a good

shot to bring home any medal,

and once we snuck in in fourth

place, we knew we could make

a run," Via said. "Bringing

home the gold is an incredible

feeling, especially in the team

event. This is the one event we

Kent has now medaled in

singles, silver in doubles with

Koff and the silver medal in

The USBC will have

The applications must be

submitted and turned in by

July 20th, not much time, so if

need to hurry.

“This is an opportunity to

Random Thoughts

USBC Open Championships:

Sean Swanson shot the 19 th

perfect game of the tournament

last week en route to a 782

series in Doubles. He bowled

with former Dallasite, Sean

Quinn now of Guntwon, Miss

to shot 1457 and take over

fourth place. Swanson finished

with 2100 in All-events and

moved into ninth place. He’s

been battling some health

issues of late, so it’s great to

see him have a good time on

the lanes.

Speaking of health issues,

I would like for all of you out

there to say some prayers for

our good friend Mark “Prime

Time” Grimes. Mark has

battled kidney disease for most

of his adult life and has already

had one kidney transplant

courtesy of his mother, Lana.

PT had a bad reaction to

some medication and was

rushed to the hospital. Luckily

his parents were at his house

that day so that they could

respond quickly and get him

the care he needs.

PT is back home now it

appears back to normal, but he

is always battling. Please keep

George, Lana, Steve, and his

wife Arlene in your thoughts

so that Mark can make a full

recovery.

So what did you think of the

BPAA Women’s US Open finals

on ESPN2 last week?

I loved it, thought it was

a great show, and visually

stunning. From a bowling

standpoint, I’m still a supporter

of the challenging condition.

It was just really interesting

to watch a bowling match

with a lot at stake, and I don’t

know who is going to win

each match because they all

went down to the wire. The

ladies had to employ some

real strategy, not just trying to

figure out which ball is going

to get them 250.

Kelly Kulick’s strategy was

trying to get her hand right

up the back of the ball so that

she could control the roll. It

worked well, and she was the

only one that made a drastic

change, but she also had the

benefit of watching the other

finalists in the prior games. It

was good to be the top-seed, it

actually DID give an advantage

this time, like it should.

Bottom line, the ladies

showed themselves to be

great competitors, and they

did bowling proud. Now the

question is how we’re going to

get the challenge in the game

full-time. And I mean really

challenging, like the finals of

the Women’s US Open.

FOUNDED AND PUBLISHED BY JOE GENNARO FROM 1956-2009

In response to the “Dust

Bowl” article and the comment

about the US Open being held in

the most “Un-manageable” area,

one of our readers had this to

say:

The AMF Bowling World

Cup was held in 1997, in Cairo,

in the desert, overlooking the

Sphinx and Pyramids of Giza.

See attached photo. We experienced

similar problems with

wind and sand, but cleaned

and oiled the lanes after

EVERY game, as well as dusted

the approaches whenever possible

(TV breaks). Obviously

the equipment back then may

not have been as aggressive as

it is today.

Here are the Women’s final

scores, not bad considering the

elements:

Semi-Final Match:

Ji Soon Lee – Korea - 203

Shalin Zulfkifi – Malaysia

- 190

Final Match

JUNIOR TEAM USA

Continued from Page 1

the silver in all-events, which

was decided Saturday. "We are

going to remember this our

entire lives, especially climbing

from fourth."

The Junior Team USA girls,

who won the team gold for the

first time since 2004 in Guam,

were led in the gold-medal

match by Jessica Earnest of

Vandalia, Ill., with 217. Amanda

Greene of Romney, W.Va.,

shot 215, Danielle McEwan of

Stony Point, N.Y., had 212 and

Kelsey Muther of Topeka, Kan.,

fired 206.

"I think even just being

picked to represent Junior

Team USA here was a big

accomplishment," Earnest said.

"We went out and we won

team gold and that was our

goal from the beginning of the

week. And we came out and

did it together."

In the semifinals, both U.S.

teams had to take down the top

seeds in their opening matches.

The Junior Team USA girls

defeated two-time defending

champions Korea, 924-846,

while the boys took down

Sweden, 860-822

The action at the World

Youth Championships now

shifts to the Masters match

play, which features the top

24 boys and top 24 girls in the

all-events standings. All four

Junior Team USA girls made

the cut, while Kent and Via

advanced on the boys side.

Larry Hatton with 279-269-279

for an 826 series in the Monday

Men’s league at AMF Lewisville.

Larry is an Applications

Engineer that builds the test

systems for semi-conductors

and has been in that field for

30 years.

What is your high series?

That’s it! This is my first 800

How many 300’s have you

bowled? One which I shot last

year.

Thoughts on your big night?

It was awesome, every time I

hit the pocket it struck. I didn’t

realize I had the 800 until a

friend told me in the tenth that

I didn’t even need a strike. I’ve

made a small change over the

summer that has really helped

my accuracy. I’m getting more

spin on the ball, and it has

also helped my spare shooting.

I don’t think I have missed a

ten-pin all summer.

What ball did you throw? A

Storm 2 Fast

Who drills your balls? The

Bowling Shop at Lewisville.

What is your all-time favorite

bowling ball? Well I guess it has

to be this one.

What is your all-time high

average? 212 last year, but I

am averaging about 240 in the

summer league.

How long have you been

bowling? I started when I was

kid bowling in youth leagues.

I took a long layoff, but then

started bowling with my wife,

Cathy, about 15 years ago. I

have been on the Denton USBC

association Board and was the

chairman for lane inspections.

So I have been pretty involved

with the sport.

Who is your favorite pro

bowler? Chris Barnes, we

always participate in their

JDRF event.

Most memorable bowling moment?

That would be the 300 I

had last year. On the last shot I

pulled it and it went Brooklyn,

but it’s a great feeling to have

every one watching. My son,

Travis almost had a 300 before

me, but shot 297 and I didn’t

want him to beat me to it. My

daughter Stacie is also an avid

bowler.

What lessons has the game

taught you? I like bowling for

the camaraderie, we always

take it seriously, but we have a

great time doing it.

ARLINGTON — The opportunity

to have their skills

evaluated at a state-of-the-art

training facility and to meet

with college coaches drew

a sellout group of studentathletes

to the Bowling Combine

for College Prospects last

summer.

The program’s successful

debut resulted in more than

200 student-athletes submitting

applications for the 2012 Bowling

Combine, which will be

held Aug. 7-11 at the International

Training and Research

Center in Arlington. While

capacity was expanded this

year, constraints will allow just

more than 100 athletes to take

part in the Bowling Combine.

The response was almost

BWAA names Pezzano

Scholarship winners

2012 List Spans USA Map

ARLINGTON — The

Bowling Writers Association

of America (BWAA) has

awarded college scholarships

to three great student bowlers.

Stephanie Sims, Garland,

Texas was named first place

winner and will receive $1,500;

Blair Blumensheid, Columbus,

Ohio, second place and $1,000;

and Samantha Chong, San

Jose, California will get $500

for third place. The award is

named in honor of BWAA,

United States Bowling Congress

and Professional Bowlers Association

Hall of Fame journalist

Chuck Pezzano of Clifton, NJ.

In addition to the scholarships,

each winner receives a oneyear

complimentary membership

in the BWAA.

Sims graduated from Fair

Hills School this year, number

2 in her graduating class, and

is headed for Stephen F. Austin

University in the fall where she

will study Hospitality Administration,

and be a member of the

Lumberjack's Varsity Bowling

Team. Her goal is to be an

event planner after college.

Sims credits bowling and

other sports for bringing her

back from her father's passing

while she was in middle

school. "I just stopped caring

for almost two years and just

went through the motions; but

finally, I decided that I was

going to have to pick myself

up and start moving on. In

high school, I made friends,

got involved in sports, and

completely surprised myself

when I ended up 3rd in my

class my freshman year. Who

knew I was brilliant?!" she

said. "I learned that through

Lane Laughter

determination and a strong

heart, you can come back from

anything."

Blumensheid says that a

losing experience taught her a

valuable lesson in 2009. After

a losing effort in a sectional

tournament where she was

favored to advance, she was

consoled by her coach. "I

realized at that moment that

anything that hurt that badly

meant something to me," she

said. "Every failure is a learning

opportunity. That day made

my life what it is today and I'm

eternally thankful. Learning

from failure and discovering

your passion are two lessons I

try to teach every girl I coach."

Blair is a senior at Ohio

State University majoring in

Strategic Communications. She

is planning a career in Public

Relations. She volunteers as

a coach at Westerville High

School.

Chong, at 4'-11" tall, realized

early on that she would have to

match physical strength with

hard work, practice and determination;

and her confidence

soared when she finished second

in an international event at

age 14. "It proved to me I could

hold my own against older

and bigger girls with practice

and self-confidence," she said.

Samantha also has confidence

in the classroom, where her

grade point average is 4.4.

She also excels at tennis and

volunteers at her church. In the

fall, she will attend New York

University majoring in Psychology,

with minors in Linguistics

and Economics.

"The Pezzano committee is


U.S. Finishes with two more medals

at World Youth Championships

Chris Via of Springfield,

Ohio, and Marshall Kent of

Yakima, Wash., won silver and

bronze medals, respectively,

on Tuesday in the Masters

competition as the 2012 World

Tenpin Bowling Association

World Youth Championships in

Bangkok, Thailand, came to a

close.

Via was the fourth qualifier

for the medal round of

the competition’s last event

but took out top seed Sam

Cooley of Australia, 246-180,

in the semifinals. In the other

semifinal, Kent fell to Daniel

Fransson of Sweden, 242-202,

to earn the bronze medal along

with Cooley.

In a close title match, Via

needed to strike twice to start

the final frame. He made the

first strike, but left a 7 pin on

his second shot, and Fransson

struck to post a 206-198 victory

and claim the gold medal.

Via had started the day in

seventh place, but in the final

five games of the seven-game

block he posted games of 264,

244, 209, 233 and 254 to earn

the last spot in the medal

round.

“I knew I could make a

run, and put some pretty good

games together to make a run

into fourth,” Via said. “In the

gold medal match, I had a good

look but just made a few errant

shots that cost me quite a few

pins. And he made the shot

when he needed to.”

Kent, who led qualifying

after the first day, slowed

down slightly on Tuesday but

still took the second spot in

qualifying.

The second day was kind

of rough but still made the

cut to the medal round,” Kent

said. “Fransson just had a

phenomenal look and I was

just grinding. I can’t complain;

overall it was a great week.”

For Kent, the bronze medal

in Masters made him the first

bowler to claim a medal in

each event at a World Youth

Championships. Kent’s five

medals – gold in singles and

team, silver in doubles and

All Events, bronze in Masters

– was the most dominating

performance by a U.S. bowler

in the competition since Kelly

Kulick won two golds and two

silvers at the 2000 event in the

Dominican Republic.

In the Masters finals for the

girls, Korea’s Hwang Yeon-Ju

won her third gold by topping

Malaysia’s Jacqueline Sijore,

226-215, in the title match. In

the semifinals, Hwang had

defeated Malaysia’s Dayang

Khairuniza, 223-181, while

Sijore topped Bernice Lim of

Singapore, 228-171.

By taking two medals in

Masters, Junior Team USA led

all boys’ teams with six total

medals – two gold, three silver,

one bronze. Fransson’s victory

gave Sweden four total medals.

“To come out here with all

the great competition and to

be the best team and win the

most medals on tough patterns

is pretty special,” said Andrew

Koff of Miami, who teamed

with Kent for the silver in

doubles. “To be the first U.S.

team to ever do that, with all

the great professional bowlers

that have come through the

Junior Team USA program, is

pretty amazing.”

Overall, Junior Team USA’s

seven medals was second

Korea’s eight medals in the

championships. For the first

The Fourth of July used to

be one of my favorite holidays,

but I have noticed a downward

trend in my anticipation and

participation in the day.

Now the meaning of the

holiday is not lost on me, but

I’m merely speaking of the

festivities surrounding it. In

my opinion I think it started a

few years ago when everyone

decided to shoot fireworks off

on the weekend simply because

the fourth was on a weekday.

Fireworks are the primary

thing we do to celebrate the

fourth of July so by shooting

them off on the Saturday

before, kind of cheapens it for

me. Also when they would

shoot them off on the fourth

you always knew when the

show was going to take place.

Now I have no idea when or

where I can catch a fireworks

show.

Another thing I cannot

understand is, no matter how

many stories I see on the news

or personally witness, I cannot

understand why people

still shoot fireworks off in

neighborhoods.

Every day when driving

around I see some charred area

of land that is scorched by a

wild fire. It cannot be shocking

news to anyone that Texas

in July has dry grass and it’s

dangerous to do anything with

fire around grass. Yet every

year the city sends out flyers

and posts signs stating that it’s

a $500 to $2000 fine to shoot

off fireworks in the city limit.

But every year I see people

shooting them right over other

people’s house. Can you imagine

the guilt you would feel if

you caught someone’s house on

fire and ruined their lives?

Maybe part of my concern

stems from a roman candle

that tipped over when I was a

kid and caused me to fall into a

fetal position for a solid five to

ten seconds dodging fire balls.

That may sound funny, but

I’m certain that I was not the

intended target of the roman

candle so my point is that they

don’t always go where you

want them to go. Although my

stance may be an unpopular

one with many people I still

believe that if you want to

shoot off fireworks then you

should do it where it is legal

and you can’t do any harm.

After watching the television

show for the Women’s U.S.

Open I must admit that the

conditions were even worse

than I had anticipated. I was

first and foremost shocked at

the fact that nobody slipped

and fell on the approach. I’m

sure that the approach conditions

were treacherous, but the

fact that everyone was able to

stay on their feet and behind

the foul line sliding on literal

dirt was pretty darn impressive.

Must be the shoes huh

Brett?

Although it was not intended

to happen I did think that

the dust on the lane provided

a pretty cool view of the lane

break down for the fans watching

at home. Every time the

ball was thrown it would make

a line on the lane showing you

the exact path of the ball. I

don’t know exactly how, but if

someone could come up with

some colored oil or something

that would emulate that visual

to the audience without ruining

the lane pattern that would

certainly make the product

on television much more

entertaining to watch. Just a

thought!

Finally, I wanted to discuss

the Dallas Mavericks. I trust

Mark Cuban to the end of the

moon, but right now I am not

sure what he is thinking.

I was okay with giving this

year up and working towards

rebuilding, but it appears that

the Mavs have put all their

eggs in one basket and that

basket just signed in Brooklyn.

Immediately the abandon ship

siren sounded as within a

couple of days of Deron Williams

signing with Brooklyn

we lost Jason Kidd and Jason

Terry. The free agent pool is

pretty slim at the moment so

you can only imagine that

the Mavs are going to try and

make a run at Dwight Howard.

Unfortunately that is not

until next summer so there

is not going to be a lot to

look forward to this year

other than plenty of discounted

ticket packages. For Dirk’s

sake I hope Cuban can put

together one more run for the

big German before he hangs up

the high tops, and hopefully

that would be here in Dallas

rather than trading him to a

contender.

By Leisha Murr

After traveling with bowling

equipment all week, I feel like

I need a real vacation. When

flying with bowling balls, I

usually try to pack everything

into a carry-on bag so that I

can check both bowling bags.

Thank goodness we still have

Southwest Airlines for bowling

equipment where you can

check two bags free of charge. I

hate having to make a connection

to get anywhere out of

Dallas, but in my opinion, it is

much better than all the baggage

fees from other airlines.

If I was paying for my bowling

balls to fly with me, I’d much

rather use bowling ball express

and ship them instead of going

through all the hassles and

lines at the airport with the

bags.

This trip, I was gone too

many days to get everything

I needed into a carry-on size

bag. I checked my clothes and

one bowling bag, and I carried

on a tote with my favorite ball,

my spare ball, and my bowling

shoes. Even though I hate lugging

balls through the airports,

it is also a good idea because

if something happened with

my luggage, I would still be

able to bowl when I needed to.

Flights get delayed or canceled,

passengers get re-routed, and

sometimes the luggage doesn’t

make it until the next day.

This happened to one of the

girls bowling with our group,

so I guess carrying on a tote

is probably always a good idea

even though it is a chore.

I’ve been through airport security

many, many times over

the last ten or so years with

bowling balls and never had

any problems. I know others

have said certain airports have

refused their bowling balls

through the TSA checkpoint,

but I haven’t really ever had

anyone question them. They

always just do a quick swab in

the bag with the wand and put

it in the machine to test and

I’m on my way to the gate. I’m

so used to the routine that I

announce, “bag check,” before

they even get through the

scanner.

This trip, on the way home

from Vegas, the TSA officer

was very thorough and by the

book. After complaining about

how heavy my bag was, he

informed me I was not allowed

to touch anything while he

did his search. “O-K.” He took

out both bowling balls and

rubbed a cotton swab in the

holes and all the way around

both one by one and put it into

the machine. It made me think

how dirty they probably are

and that the machine might

just go off for the amount of

germs. Yikes!

I figured that was it, but

then he went to the shoe

compartment and started

unloading all of that pocket.

My bowling shoes are not new,

so I don’t usually let them

air-out in public. He unzipped

the pouch with all of my turbo

switch-grip thumbs and then

went into the case that has

all of my tape and scissors

in there. The 4 inch scissors

were fine, but I had forgotten

that I had the small flat pocket

knife or Swiss-army knife with

scissors that I had gotten from

AMF Desoto Lanes

121 Northgate Dr.

DeSoto, TX 75115

972-780-8090

the Greater Fort Worth Bowling

Association as an award in

there. I mean, I know that little

one inch blade (which I’m sure

was duller than the scissors)

could really do some damage.

He offered that I could go

check it with my luggage, or I

can go mail it to myself, and

three times I told him he could

just throw it away before he

finally packed everything else

back in my bag. He then informed

me that it was “policy”

to run the bag back through

the scanner as he struggled to

carry the balls back to the conveyer

belt. This was the first

time the tote had ever been

re-scanned and I just laughed

as I waited. He must be new to

the TSA or on probation.

I didn’t think anything

about losing the award because

I knew I’d get another one

sometime, and then I remembered.

There is no more

GFWMBA. I’m sure I will get

another award, but it will

no longer be the Fort Worth

Bowling Association at all. I

did, however, see some good

news this week. The USBC has

approved the establishment of

the North Central Texas USBC

Association which will replace

the GFWMBA and service the

Fort Worth, Arlington, HEB,

and other surrounding area

bowlers as before.

Anyone in the area interested

in getting involved

and serving on this new

association’s board of directors

is encouraged to apply. Applications

for the North Central

Texas USBC Association board

are due July 20, and are supposed

to be posted on the web

at bowl.com/rules/ft_worth.

You can also contact the former

FWBA office 817-336-2555 for

more info on how to apply.

If you don’t like how things

were done in the past, here is

your chance with a fresh start

to get in there and help make

changes for the future.

FORUM BOWL’S COLOR

Continued from Page 1

sweeper directors. “Bowlers

can pick and choose their

weeks to show up, and come

and be a part of all the fun.”

Each game, there are several

different ways bowlers can win

money, from at least eight $25

strike pots tickets drawn each

game, a special ladies strike

pot, and a mystery score drawn

after the first game which has

been over $300 for quite some

time. To go along with that,

there are brackets of all styles

for all bowlers, from scratch,

handicap, doubles, ladies and

185 and under average, as

well as at least eight mega pot

tickets at the end of the night,

in which bowlers must strike

on three different lanes to win

$200.

“One of the best parts

about the Forum Sweep is the

great atmosphere with all the

bowlers, as well as the lanes

themselves,” said Taylor, who

bowls weekly. “It is still old

wood lanes, so the transition

is still very true for the house

condition, which keeps scores

in check, meaning anyone

can make some money on any

given week.”

One of the best new additions

to the sweeper has been

the Forum Bowl’s Color Pin

Sweeper Facebook page, where

Taylor, along with wife Tina,

and now weekly supporter

Tammy Crawford come up

with weekly promotions for

the bowlers, giving them many

more chances to win money.

Some of the recent promotions

included Rangers Red Night,

Independence Day to show

your country colors, Camo

Night to support our troops,

and even a $1 hot dog night,

all giving away free strike pot

tickets to those participating.

“Our best promo yet was

our 10 year anniversary night,

in which bowlers wore black

for the occasion, and the first

person to bring Tina a black

rose got a free entry that

week,” Taylor said. “It was

amazing just how many roses

were brought, but the very first

was delivered to our porch at

6 a.m. that morning by Josh

Skittles Mittl. People loved it!”

The best promotion has yet

to come, however, as Taylor

just announced this week plans

for a free sweeper night to all

readers of The Bowling News.

On August 18th, Forum Bowl

has joined with Houghton

Insurance Agency, operated by

Tina and her mom, the Bracket

B Sherry Houghton, to give all

bowlers who have insurance

through the agency a free entry

into that week’s sweeper. In

addition, any bowler who does

not have insurance with them,

can call by August 17th and get

a quote, and also receive a free

entry, regardless if they take

new insurance or not.

“We are always looking for

ways to give away money as

well as save people money on

the night, and now possibly

even save them money on

insurance as well,” Taylor said

of the promo.

The choice of sport for

Houghton Insurance is definitely

bowling,” added Houghton.

“And for many of the biggest

bowlers in the area, we are the

choice of insurance.”

The sweeper crew includes

the Taylors and Houghton, as

well as Melissa George, Courtney

Sanders, Woody Woodrow,

Jeff Sapp and a few others, it is

as much about the fun for them

as it is for the bowlers.

“I love being able to see all

the bowlers and friends weekly

and hang out with them,” Tina

said. “This is work without

work, and I get to meet so

many new people, which is the

best part.”

So if you have yet to come

out and experience the Forum

Sweeper, or it has been a

while, now is a great time to

stop back in and be a part of

everything. With the generally

slow summer months averaging

over 100 bowlers, who

knows what the fall will bring,

especially on August 18th.

“Come join me in the crazy

fun,” said Crawford. “I love me

some Forum Sweep long time!”

IMPORTANT NOTICE

mentioned that no one will be

excluded, yet they are starting

from scratch with no previous

members having any say in the

election of officials.

The new association will be

smaller with only seven board

members, but they plan to lean

heavily on volunteerism based

around the house members

as they will be the face of the

organization.

As for the numerous assets

from the previous Fort Worth

association, there will be a

meeting on July 14th to decide

what to do with those. The Fort

Worth Bowling association is

still operating as a corporation

since the charter was

revoked by the USBC, with

James Askins still being the

President.

Kevin Boykin claimed highseries

honors for the week at Red

Bird Lanes with a rip-roaring

257-205-258 = 720 Red Bird Mix

outing.

Rita Becker and Judy

Dillabough, from the Career Girls

group, shared high-series honors

to lead the lady bowlers as each

rolled a lofty 561 set. Becker

rolled games of 200-171-190

while Dillabough downed lines

of 174-208-179.

But new times are here for

the area bowlers, “it’s a great

feeling, and the one thing that

the Fort Worth bowlers were

hoping for and we are grateful

that the organization was reestablished.

So far, Fort Worth

is the only association that has

been approved to re-constitute
