By Tony Franklin

Publisher, The Bowling News

Tommy Jones and Shannon

Pluhowsky were victorious in

the 11th Luci Bonneau Memorial

Mixed Doubles Tournament

held in Houston on July 23-25.

This marks the third time

in four years they’ve won the

event. And the year they didn’t

win, they got fourth.

The duo ended up beating

second-place finishers, Wes

Malott and Shannon O’Keefe,

by only 90 pins, only because

they started tapping the brakes

with about five games to go.

At one point their lead over

second place swelled to over

Rockwall’s

Shenaniganz set for

full speed bowling

By Jim Woodruff

The Shenaniganz Bowling

and Entertainment Center has

been the best-kept secret in

this part of the country.

No more.

The center is all dolled up

and ready to go at full speed

with its 120 employees.

The beautiful center actually

opened Dec. 17, 2008, but

held off on the bowling end of

the business until they were

certain they could manage

such an extravagant center like

it should be.

The center is located on

400 pins.

The field for the “Luci”, as it

is known, is one of the stron-

The Bowling News Kickoff

Classic will be held on Saturday

Aug. 28 at 7:00 p.m. at

AMF Showplace Euless.

The event is the brainchild

of tournament director Dino

Castillo. “It is as much a

bowler’s appreciation event

as a tournament. I wanted to

run a tournament that would

get bowlers energized and

ready for the upcoming league

season,” he said.

The event will have booths

from all of the major Bowling

Ball companies, Ebonite,

Track, Columbia 300, Hammer,

and 900 Global.

Before the tournament starts

on Saturday the Ball companies

will be hosting a “Demo

Day” from 1-5 p.m., where

you can come out and try the

latest and greatest balls that

the companies have to offer.

This is a unique way for the

general bowling public to get

to practice with all of the new

balls on the market, and also

Th e Bowling News

By JIM WOODRUFF

Oh, for the good old days

when you could really get

excited about the PBA Tour

getting ready for the kickoff.

I loved it. You knew when

and where it was going to

be. And you knew where you

wanted to be on Saturday

afternoons. That would be

with Chris, Bo and the boys.

Now the World Series of

Bowling is going to start

before too long. And, if I

understand it all, it will

kick off with a number of

those beloved tape-delayed

tournaments which aren’t too

exciting when you know the

winner before it starts.

I would like to work out a

way to see the shows and not

know the winners. But that

ain’t going to happen.

What makes it extra

discouraging is that we have

so many great bowlers around

here like Chris Barnes, Mike

Scroggins and Wes Malott

that we really want to see.

One or two of them usually is

in contention.

I’m sure the PBA is aware

of its woes and is doing the

best it can.

So I suppose I should stop

complaining so much and do

the best I can. But I will be

anxious for them to get down

to the live-TV shows. We were

spoiled too much for too long.

* * *

Connie Cotton, one of this

area’s most popular folks

who had a heart attack a few

months ago, is still recuperating,

but has had a few

problems.

Like the doctors are having

a little trouble getting the

medicine regulated.

And her back has gone out

and she can’t bowl. That’s

really hard for her to take.

* * *

We are going to have

ourselves a really good

tournament this month.

It will be the Fort Worth-

Dallas NABI Open.

The winner will take home

$8,000 with 300 entries.

NABI’s Tina Taylor said it

looks like it’s going to be a

huge success.

PBA players participate in

Jeff Gordon charity event

PBA Hall of Famers Parker

Bohn III and Mike Aulby were

participants in the annual

Jeff Gordon celebrity bowling

fund-raiser at Western Bowl in

Indianapolis on July 22 as part

of NASCAR’s Brickyard 400

week.

The annual event, which

raised more than $300,000,

benefits the Jeff Gordon Pediatric

Cancer Research Fund at

Riley Hospital for Children in

Indianapolis.

Gordon, Sam Hornish Jr.

and Sara Fisher were among

the race car drivers who

attended.

Tonya Castro

This week’s high woman is

Tonya Castro with a 236-279-

269 for a 784 series at AMF

Showplace Garland Lanes.

Tonya works for AT&T as a

proofer. She proofreads all of

the ads that go into the phone

book. Her daughter Megan also

bowls, but not the year-round

schedule that Tonya follows.

What is your high series?

796, and that was a few years

ago in a doubles tournament

with Daniel Adams.

How many 300’s have you

bowled? I have bowled three.

Thoughts on your big night?

I was relaxed and had a new

ball drilled a few weeks ago

and bowled really well. I was

really comfortable and it was

my night.

What ball did you throw?

The Track 505T. I have been

using more Track balls lately

and they have really been

working well for me.

Who drills your balls? My

husband, Chris, even though

he’s a Storm Staff member he

still drills the Track balls for

me.

What is your all-time favorite

bowling ball? I have been

through so many, but I would

have to say my first Track ball.

The 920T, I shot a 300 with it.

What is your average in the

Wednesday NASCAR league?

211.

What is your all-time high

average? This is my high. It has

been going up every year.

How long have you been

bowling? About 37 years. My

parents and whole family

bowled in a league at Buckner

Bowl and I started when I was

10. It just took off from there.

Who is your favorite pro

bowler? Dick Weber, he had

a good personality, great

sportsmanship and was really

cool. Very down to earth, and a

great attitude.

Most memorable bowling

moment? My first 300. I didn’t

even know I was shooting that,

until the last ball. Each time it

just gets more exciting.

Tonya’s tip of the week: My

husband Chris has been so

supportive of my bowling and

wants to help me get better. I

am so appreciative of that. He

taught me that, right before I

throw the shot to think about

keeping my feet slow, stay under

the ball and follow though.

It has helped me out quite a lot.

Rob Hendrix

We were unable to contact

Rob Hendrix, this week’s high

man. Rob posted a 268-268-296

= 832 series in the Full House

league at AMF Showplace

Euless. We will try to get his

spotlight for next week.

I know the readers of The

Bowling News are bowling

lovers, but I am sure that some

of you are also rodeo fans.

I recently went to my

nephew Cutter’s house in

Oklahoma to celebrate his fifth

birthday. My brother-in-law

is a champion team roper and

my sister-in-law is a champion

barrel racer.

Like my bowling tournaments

they too travel around to

different cities and participate

in rodeos.

Although Cutter is only

five he is already a champion

dummy roper. Instead of roping

an actual steer, kids rope a

dummy steer from different

distances.

A month ago he won a 6

and under roping competition

to win his first buckle. He has

also had his picture in the

Super Looper magazine and

newspaper multiple times.

The key to his success is that

unlike most kids his age, he

practices by roping goats.

At their house they have

a pen and a make shift chute

where he can rope the goats

just like he would a steer. The

goats are more difficult to rope,

so by practicing with them

makes roping steers much

easier.

In December he will be

roping in the National Finals

Rodeo in Las Vegas and on the

way to the RPI I will be bowling

in Reno, we are hoping to

get a chance to watch him.

And for all you ladies who

love your cowboys you are

going to have to get in line for

this one because he already

has a girlfriend. It seems that

a young lady by the name of

Miranda Lambert, is a neighbor

of theirs and she has claimed

him as her boyfriend. Better

luck next time ladies.

We are not far from the

beginning of football season,

but there is already some exciting

controversy brewing.

The Cincinnati Bengals,

who already have the over the

top Chad Ochocinco, have now

gone out and added the most

controversial player in the NFL,

Terrell Owens to their wide

receiving corps.

Now if we take these two

outrageously talented and entertaining

receivers we should

see some major fireworks this

year. How well will they enjoy

playing together? Will they

argue who is the better of the

two?

By the end of the season I

suspect that Owens will be on

his best behavior, as he does

with any new team, but the

work ethic of these two may

lead to Carson Palmer putting

up some unbelievable numbers

this year.

I really think this may work

out for Cincinnati and I think

they may make a serious run at

the AFC title.

The Rangers continue to be

red hot and as of today they

hold an eight and a half game

lead over the Oakland A’s and a

nine game lead of the Angels.

With Cliff Lee on board the

pitching staff is now loaded

and we all know that the

infield is one of the best in

baseball. The outfield is great

too, so the question is, where

are the weak links on this

team. The only answers that

I can come up with are the

depth at the infield position

and the Texas heat.

Obviously there is nothing

to do about the Texas heat,

other than put up a giant shade

over the stadium, but there is

something they can do about

the depth.

With Ian Kinsler injured the

Rangers have traded with the

Marlins and the Nationals to

acquire another first baseman

and another second baseman.

Although I like the gutsy

moves the Rangers are making,

I am also worried about

playing with the chemistry the

team already has. Chemistry is

so important in baseball, so I

hope it doesn’t change the one

constant that this team has

been successful with.

The truth is that if they

can handle this upcoming

nine-game stretch against their

entire division then I think

we are looking at the division

champs who will have a

chance to bring DFW our first

MLB championship.

This week’s what is in

Daceman’s DVD player is “Hot

Tub Time Machine” starring

John Cusack.

The story is about a group of

guys trying to relive the glory

days by returning to their most

memorable weekend as kids.

The good times they remember

are not all they thought they

were, and the lure of being able

to change the past leads them

to make stupid decisions. The

movie was very funny throughout,

but the language was very

strong, so keep the kiddies

away from this one. I give this

a three out of four stars for the

excellent writing and casting of

this movie.

Those Pesky Single

Pin ‘Clusters’

Part II

This month we’ll continue

talking about single pin spares,

what causes them, and how to

not to leave them so often.

The 6 Pin

A 6 pin is usually the

result of a high hit. The ball

hits too much of the 3 sending

it straight back, rather

than sideways into the 6. An

adjustment that causes the

ball to hit less of the 3 pin is

appropriate – more speed, less

hand, change equipment, move

inside. You have lots of choices.

The 7 Pin

There are often two ways to

leave some single pin spares.

A ‘stone’ 7 (one of those ‘the

breeze should have knocked

it over’ shots), is caused by

a high hit. The headpin goes

straight back and its impact

with the 2 causes that pin to

rebound off the kickback plate

to take the 4 but not the 7.

A ‘slow’ 7, like the slow 4

we talked about recently, is a

light hit. The headpin is hit

too thinly, sending it in front

of the 2. The 2 falls backward,

nicking the right edge of the 4,

which is sent weakly into the

channel rather than into the 7.

The 8 Pin

This is usually the result of

a shot that either causes the 5

to fly over the 8 or drives the 5

straight back. In other words,

the ball hits the pocket but

doesn’t deflect properly. It is

too strong for those poor weak

pins. You can change the angle

of entry into the pocket by

changing your rotation, going

to a less aggressive coverstock,

speeding up, or moving inside.

Again, lots of choices.

There is also a slow 8,

which is usually accompanied

by a very late falling 10 pin

(almost an 8-10 split). This ball

has hit weakly, deflecting too

much. Make your get-the-ballinto-the-pocket-higher

moves

and you’ll be fine.

The 9 Pin

Since the ball is supposed

to take the 9 pin and it didn’t,

where did the ball go? Unless

you’re throwing a very light

ball, it was left of the 9. This

can be a frequent occurrence

with the strong coverstocks

and drilling patterns of today’s

game. The ball drives too

strongly through the pocket,

leaving the deck so far left of

the 9, it misses the pin entirely.

You could move left, change

hand positions, reduce your

speed, or change to a less

aggressive coverstock and/or

layout.

The 10 Pin

You must know which kind

of 10 pin (ringing or weak) you

are leaving in order to make

the proper adjustment. A weak

10 occurs because you hit too

much of the 3 pin and too little

of the headpin. This changes

how the 3 hits the 6 and causes

the 6 to go in front of the 10. It

lands in the channel without

enough speed to rebound

into the 10. The 6 can also

go in front of the 10, hit the

kickback, and then go behind

the 10, leaving it standing.

Either way is a weak 10. The

adjustment for this is usually a

one board move to the outside.

Although there are other

adjustments you could make,

this is the most common.

A ringing 10 is a shot where

the 6 pin whips around the

base or neck of the 10 pin.

Sometimes ringing 10 pins are

a matter of speed – usually too

much. Back off a bit. You could

also move back on the approach.

If you need to change

your angle, do the usual

things: move inside, change

equipment, etc.

Ringing 10’s are part of the

game. Paying attention to the

scoring pace is very important

here. You don’t want to move

off a 10 pin and wind up giving

up the pocket. Walter Ray has

more money and more titles

than anyone on the planet

because of all the 10 pins he

leaves. He NEVER gives up the

pocket. Neither should you.

Well, there you have the

whys of those single pin

clusters. Standing pins are your

friend. They clearly tell you

what move to make to be sure

they’re not standing up there

next time.

BVL recognizes top

proprietor contributions

Five bowling proprietors and

one local Bowling Proprietors’

Association left Bowl Expo

in Las Vegas recently, each

with their second consecutive

Bowlers to Veterans Link

(BVL) award, recognizing their

outstanding support for the

BVL cause during the 2008-

2009 league season.

These same award winners

also took home identical

honors for their donations

during the previous 2007-2008

season.

“We are deeply indebted to

these proprietors for leading

the way for BVL,” commented

BVL Board Chair Darlene

Baker. “It was just three years

ago when we called on America’s

bowling centers to join

with our league bowlers to take

on the BVL effort. They have

responded enthusiastically.”

Maple Family Lanes,

Brooklyn, NY, led the centeroriented

contributions for the

season with a total of $6,000.

Proprietor John LaSpina

has six centers in the New

York City Metropolitan Area.

Thunderbird Lanes followed

very closely with $5,974.50 in

donations. Thunderbird has

three centers in the Philadelphia

area that coordinated a

BVL fund-raiser in conjunction

The third largest contribution

was from the Leslie Goldberg

Charity Fund for $5,000. Goldberg

is the president of Bowl

America, which has 19 centers

along the East Coast. Operating

five centers in Illinois, The Don

Carter Lanes Group donated

$3,519.50 to the BVL during

last year’s season. Proprietor

John Sommer conducted a “Heroes

in Our Midst” campaign

saluting veterans and active

duty military in each of those

communities.

A special award was

presented to Bowland Centers,

with six centers in Southwest

Florida. Proprietors Pat and

Lisa Ciniello worked alongside

their area USBC association to

support the leagues’ efforts.

This affiliation helped Southwest

Florida USBC donate more

than $11,000 to BVL during the

2008-2009 league season.

Another fruitful relationship

resulted in a $2,215.98 contribution

to the BVL: The Chicagoland

Bowling Proprietors

Association was recognized as

the fifth highest contributor

as part of that association’s

annual “Beat the Champs”

contest. BVL was named one of

the charities for that event.

pro shop and has for years.

Billy Joe gave the PBA

tour a whirl years ago.

“He is the best bowler and

also the best electrician,” said

Jeff.

Jeff, as everybody else in

the business, is aware of the

decreasing number of league

bowlers.

He doesn’t think youth

bowling is in such bad condition,

and he points out that

senior bowling is doing well.

But he feels the game is

losing customers in between

those groups,

What needs to be done?

“Just keep working,” he

said. “Keep looking.”

Cathey was asked what he

would do if he had more room

at Red Bird. He said he had

enough lanes right now.

There is one thing he would

really like to see, and that is

for the proprietors to work

together more.

“We don’t ever do that any

more, “he said.

Hamilton takes silver in

girls singles at World

HELSINKI, FINLAND

— Junior Team USA’s Brittni

Hamilton of Webster, N.Y.,

earned the silver medal in girls

singles July 25 in the opening

event at the 2010 World Tenpin

Bowling Association World

Youth Championships.

Hamilton’s silver-medal

finish was the highest in any

event at the World Youth

Championships for the Junior

Team USA girls since 2004. The

three-time Junior Team USA

member lost in the gold-medal

match to Korea’s Yeon-Ju Kim,

192-155.

Yeon-Ju raced out to a

commanding lead in the match,

taking a 65-pin advantage after

six frames and rolled to the

title with ease at Tali Bowl.

“I had a couple of shots

early that I thought were good

that just didn’t react like I

thought they would and it cost

me,” Hamilton said. “I kind of

got lost in the beginning of the

match, but I’m not disappointed

at all. I know that medaling at

all is a big accomplishment.”

Hamilton advanced to the

semifinals with a thrilling

overtime victory against top

seed Carmen Haandrikman of

the Netherlands. Haandrikman

needed just seven pins on her

final shot to eliminate Hamil-

against one another for medals.

The event was about the

gathering of friends statewide

who have shared a profession,

current and retired, and being

able to step away for a few days

from the stresses that their

careers entail.

“It’s a once a year family

reunion for us,” said Macias on

the event. “We are a very close

knit brotherhood/sisterhood.”

For the bowlers and their

families, the once-a-year event

is all about getting together,

sharing stories of the past

year and about their lives in

general, and just having a great

time and enjoying some good,

clean competition.

“It’s about the competing,

the camaraderie, and time

together,” added Macias. “It’s

great because in our profession,

you could be here today, gone

tomorrow.”

In all, 60 medals were

awarded to the bowlers over

the two-plus days of competition,

with some standout

multi medalists headlining the

winners.

Randy Cockrell of Houston

was the big winner in division

A, medaling in all four events,

including gold in team and

singles, and bronze in doubles

and all-events.

Event director Macias took

home three silver medals in

team, doubles and all-events.

Cockrell’s teammate Lee

Lorts of Houston also was a

two-time medalist with gold in

team and all-events.

In division B, Mike Faulkenberry

of Dallas also medaled

in all four events, with gold in

doubles, singles, and all-events,

and a bronze in team.

Trey Frazier of Fort Worth

took home three medals, with

silver medals in team and

all-events, and a gold medal

in the division C doubles with

teammate Scott Cole.

Division C was headlined by

a few different bowlers during

the competition. Jerome Gibson

of Fort Worth won three medals,

with gold in all-events, and

bronze medals in doubles and

team.

Kerry Thomas of Plano, who

bowls multiple leagues at AMF

Lewisville, also won three

medals, taking home silver in

singles, doubles and all-events.

with bronze in team, singles

and doubles.

Skyler Ainesworth, Clifton’s

Fort Worth teammate, rounded

out some of the big winners,

with bronze medals in team,

singles and all-events.

It was another highly successful

year for the competitors

of the Texas Firefighter Olympics

in the bowling events.

The city of Lewisville and

AMF Lewisville, in particular,

played a big role in making

that possible.

“Things were great because

of the city of Lewisville. There

was so much for everyone

and their families to do,” said

Macias. “Smaller cities are

tough because there is little to

do outside of the competition

venues.”

The bowling center was

great,” Macias added. “Jeremiah,

general manager, and

his staff did a fantastic job and

took great care of us.”

The 29th Texas Firefighter

Olympics is set to be held in

July 17-22, 2011 in Round

Rock, and firefighters statewide

will get another chance to get

together for some good fun

competition and a new chance

at bragging rights.

For the United States,

Andrew Koff shot 1,308, an

average of 218, and settled

for a top-10 finish in his first

appearance at the World Youth

Championships. The 18-yearold

opened with games of 203,

220 and 182 before hitting his

stride and finishing with 248,

220 and 235.

“I started the first couple

games really fast because

this is a big tournament and

I wanted to do my best; I lost

sight of things,” Koff said. “The

last three games, I calmed

down and felt like I threw it

really well.

I’m looking forward to the

remaining games we have in

the tournament.”

Craig Hanson finished 14th

for the United States with

1,296. Devin Bidwell was 77th

with 1,148, and Jacob Peters

took 78th with 1,145.

Syimir Abdul Razak of

Malaysia had the tournament’s

first 300 game in the final

game of his qualifying block.

Razak finished in 48th place

with 1,216.

Hattori and O’Brien win Teen Masters

high school division titles

RENO, NV — Zack Hattori

of Las Vegas and Morgan

O’Brien of Lomira, WI, won

the high school boys and girls

titles in the 14th annual Teen

Masters at the National Bowling

Stadium July 29.

Hattori won a $4,000

scholarship as high school

boys winner while McKenzie

Eaton of Wyoming, MI, earned

$2,000 as runner-up. O’Brien

won a $3,000 scholarship and

Kaylee Magazine of Clearwater,

FL, $1,500 as high school girls

champion and runner-up,

respectively.

Hattori, who will be a senior

at Silverado High School in Las

Vegas this fall, defeated Eaton,

4-2 (167-197, 236-216, 208-204,

209-187, 229-248, 234-203) in

the best-of-seven-game championship

match.

“I had a good line but the

first game I wasn’t executing

really well,” said Hattori, in his

fourth Teen Masters. “It was

hard for me to double because I

couldn’t get the left lane down

(long pattern.) I switched balls

and got in more so that’s when

I started making good shots

and it started to come together.

“I didn’t know much about

McKenzie coming into this

week but we were rooting for

each other in the championship

match and I just happened to

come out on top.”

O’Brien, who will be a

senior at St. Marys Springs

high school this fall, took

advantage of an open frame by

Magazine in the 10th frame

of game seven to win the girls

championship match, 4-3 (187-

211, 158-193, 169-163, 221-180,

216-186, 193-194, 181-175).

O’Brien had a spare and strike

in the 10th to clinch the final

game.

“She had me in the first

two games,” said O’Brien in

her third Teen Masters. “After

that, I made an adjustment and

a ball change and that made a

big difference. I also saw how

she was playing and I decided

to adjust to use her line.

“My coaches told me to not

focus on beating my opponent

but beating the pins so that’s

what I did but my heart was

still beating out of my chest.”

In the 14-under division, 14year-old

Greg Young of Viera,

FL, captured the boys title with

a 3-1 victory (202-194, 200-

219, 226-203, 188-184) in the

best-of-five-game championship

match over Jeffrey Juarez of

East Meadow, NY, to win a

$1,200 scholarship. Juarez won

$1,000.

“I did not want to go into

game five,” said Young, bowling

in his first Teen Masters.

“ I was struggling on the

long pattern and the ball was

checking up. I had some nerves

and was glad to win it in game

four.”

In the girls 14-under title

match, 13-year-old Ashley

Dunn of Palmdale, CA, defeated

Chevelle Holstein of Sparks,

NV, 3-1 (191-171, 224-158,

135-199, 195-146) for a $1,000

scholarship. Holstein won $700

for second place.

“I’m very excited,” Dunn

said. I got more confident as

the week went on and that

helped me. In the last match I

had to switch my ball on the

long pattern and move left on

the short pattern and those

moves got me to the pocket and

get more carry.”

In addition to competing

for scholarship prizes, Teen

Masters champions O’Brien

and Hattori will join Danielle

McEwan, Rockland, NY, and

Mike Fujita, El Sobrante, CA,

from the Collegiate Masters in

receiving invitations to bowl

alongside the best bowlers

in the world in the 2010 PBA

World Series of Bowling, Oct.

24-Nov. 6, at South Point Bowling

The Teen Masters was

created by Gary Beck, founder

of Killer B Promotions, in 1997

and has provided young bowlers

with more than $1 million

in scholarships over a span of

14 years.

Bowl. Hanson shot 227 and

Koff had 201, while Bidwell

shot 222 and Peters fired 204.

The United States is the only

country in the history of the

event to win both the gold and

silver in the same year. It last

happened in 1988 in Manila,

Philippines, when the event

was known as the International

Youth Championships.

“It was really relaxing, and

we were just having fun out

there doing our best,” Koff said.

“We got both medals, that’s

what we were out here for.”

In the gold-medal match,

Bidwell and Peters looked like

they would be on their way to

the title, leading by more than

50 pins at the halfway point.

But Hanson finished with six

consecutive strikes and then

Koff doubled in the 10th to give

them the gold.

“We never let ourselves get

out of it mentally,” Hanson

said. “We talked to each other

and said that we needed to

have a strong last half, make a

good ball change, make good

shots and hopefully that would

get us the gold.”

Even though they were

bowling their teammates,

Bidwell said both doubles

teams wanted to come out on

top.

“Of course we wanted to

win as a team, but it was still

a doubles event, so we wanted

to win it just as bad as they

did,” Bidwell said. “It’s really

cool to have both teams on

top, though, and this gives us

momentum heading into the

team event.”

In the semifinals, Hanson

shot 182 and Koff had 198 as

they took down top seed Korea,

380-363. Ju-Young Kim shot

185, while Seung-Hyeon Shin

had 178 for Korea.

Bidwell fired 194, while

Peters had 192 as they knocked

off Malaysia, 386-343. Aris

Ardilla had 174, and Syimir

Razak shot 169 for Malaysia.

Columbians take girls

doubles gold at World

Youth Championships

HELSINKI, FINLAND — A

pair of Colombian bowlers

who compete collegiately in

the United States won the girls

doubles gold medal Tuesday at

the 2010 World Tenpin Bowling

Association World Youth

Championships.

Colombia’s Laura Fonnegra

and Maria Jose Rodriguez

teamed up to defeat Singapore’s

Daphne Tan and New Hui Fen,

481-473, to claim the top spot

at Tali Bowl. The high finishers

for Junior Team USA were Jenn

Boisselle and Kristie Petravich,

who took 11th.

In the gold-medal match,

Fonnegra, who bowls for

Lindenwood, shot 259 and

Rodriguez, who competes for

Maryland Eastern Shore, shot

222. Fen had 237, while Tan

shot 236 for Singapore.

“This means a lot, like a

dream coming true, seriously,”

Rodriguez said. “When you

come to the World Championships,

you want to win and

making it real is unbelievable.

I can’t explain it.”

In the semifinals, the Colombians

defeated Singapore’s

second team of Shayna Ng and

Wichita State bowler Jazreel

Lane Laughter

Tan, 412-392. The other Singaporean

team took out Korea’s

Yeon-Ju Kim and Moon-Jeong

Kim, 456-414. The semifinals

losers shared the bronze medal.

For Junior Team USA,

Petravich and Boisselle shot

2,459, an average of 204.9, and

missed making the semifinals

by 96 pins. Petravich shot

1,275, while Boisselle contributed

1,184.

The other U.S. pairing of

Christine Bator and Brittni

Hamilton finished in 13th place

with 2,440. Bator paced the

duo with 1,289, while Hamilton

shot 1,162.

In all-events, Latvia’s Diana

Zavjalova leads with 2,656,

an average of 221.3, with six

games of team event remaining.

Moon-Jeong is second at

2,651. Petravich is the highest

player for Junior Team USA in

seventh place with 2,548.

The top 16 players after

18 games advance to Masters

match play based on their

all-events totals.

Hamilton sits in 14th place

with 2,482, and Bator is 16th

with 2,473. Boisselle sits in

20th place with 2,449.

nine months out, plus I feel

that the amount you pay to

bowl the pro-am is affordable

by all. There are so many

prizes that you can win while

you bowl, we added several

great new sponsors this year,

and of course all of the great

pros that come bowl, all of

these factors are the key to

success,” Conners said.

One of the really interesting

traditions is that Donna never

posts the roster for the tournament

until the Friday before.

“It’s a little game I play that

adds a level of excitement. You

don’t know who’s bowling

until you show up, I normally

start getting texts and emails

about three weeks out wanting

to know who’s bowling,” she

said.

Another treat for the bowlers

is that every year they give

away two flat screen TV’s via a

free raffle to a male and female

participant. Now how many

tournaments have you seen do

that?

The tournament director is

Jim Welch, who is paid with a

12-pack of Diet Dr Pepper. Phil

Perry runs the brackets and is

paid with Crown and cigars.

He must be the higher priced

talent.

The tournament is not

about the money. The money

is big but the pride of winning

is bigger. It’s not an easy

tournament to win. The lanes

are challenging and the field is

strong, but that’s exactly why

we had 82 entries this year,”

said Conners.

“He’s fun to bowl with, it’s

a friendly competition we have

so it stays light-hearted. I don’t

ever beat him, but it’s ok,” said

Pluhowsky of partner Tommy

Photos from the Luci

Bonneau Memorial

Jones.

“She makes the lane condition

fair for all skill levels,

because everyone comes out

to bowl for this great cause.

Donna does a great job for this

event,” Jones said of Conners.

The Jones-Pluhowsky duo

dominated basically from the

first game of qualifying and

never relinquished the lead.

“Tommy really bowled great

throughout the tournament,

and when we hit the bad pairs

I think we grinded better

than some of the others,” said

Pluhowsky.

The tandem won $7,000 for

TO PONDER

By CHUCK PEZZANO

How do writers get their

stories?

You can attend specifically

scheduled press conferences

for special announcements or

you can pursue a one-on-one

interview. You can talk to the

stars after they shoot in tournament

play in a press room

setting or catch a running star

going to or going away from

a competition. You can use

the phone or any other type of

communication. You can be

polite or be a pest.

But with all the ways, one

of the most unique developed

over the years at the Firestone

Tournament of Champions,

and the man most responsible

was one of the most respected

reporters of bowling in the

history of the sport, a writer

we lost on July 4, Dick Evans.

Evans was the pied piper of

setting up breakfast, lunch and

dinner gatherings wherever

there was a bowling gathering,

meeting, tournament, convention,

exhibition, presentation

and just plain socializing.

At the early Tournament of

Champions happenings, Evans

would get himself, me and

John Jowdy to meet at unheard

of early hours for breakfast,

long prior to the rolling of

the first ball of that day’s

tournament action. Then Joe

Lyou, Red Burnham and Steve

Cruchon joined the crowd.

Pretty soon Bud Fisher became

a regular sand the one table we

had reserved became two and

three and finally a separate

banquet alcove was set up for

the breakfast press boys.

We welcomed bowlers in

the tournament and soon Dick

Weber and Johnny Petraglia

became regulars and Champ

Husted, dad of young star Dave

Husted. Representatives of the

sponsors, manufacturers and

officials of all integers of the

sport found their way to the

breakfast free-for-alls and no

subject was taboo.

Everyone there was relaxed,

maybe too much, and many a

quote that shouldn’t have been

uttered made the next day’s

paper or next week’s bowling

publication or next month’s

bowling magazine.

It was a hotbed of quips,

quotes, insults, inside stuff and

writers, competitors, sponsors,

industry representatives and

a lot of uninvited cousins and

uncles joined the crowd and

found it a show better than any

Broadway hit.

It wasn’t nasty or didn’t

reveal every sad or forgettable

experiences but many

an attendee found some of

his choice material common

knowledge one way or another.

Over the years, more

than 100 of history’s greatest

bowlers attended breakfast by

Evans, Dutch treat. The most

highly attended tournament by

the media probably saw more

than 200 writers, broadcasters

and historians taking in one

Tribolet makes big debut

in adult leagues

SAN ANGELO — Former

youth bowler Travis Tribolet

made a big splash in the adult

league on July 5.

Tribolet had games of 248,

300 and 248 for his first perfect

game and his highest series

ever, a 706.

Tribolet is consistently averaging

200-plus in two leagues.

He is an avid bowler and hopes

to turn pro someday.

Reno to host USBC Open and

Women’s Championships in

2013 and 2014

For the first time in history,

the United States Bowling Congress

will bring the USBC Open

and Women’s Championships

to the same city simultaneously

when Reno, NV, hosts both

events in 2013 and 2014.

Plans call for the Open

Championships to be held

in the National Bowling

Stadium, while the Women’s

Championships will take place

in a custom-built arena inside

the Reno-Sparks Convention

Center. USBC will install

dozens of lanes and the largest

indoor mobile scoreboard in

the world at the convention

center continuing the spectacular

feel bowlers expect. The

convention-center setting first

was introduced to the Women’s

Championships at the 2010

event in El Paso.

“Hosting USBC’s two largest

championships in the same

city will create great new

opportunities and experiences

for our bowlers,” USBC execu-

tive director Stu Upson said.

“We want families to have

the option of traveling to the

national tournaments together,

but we also respect the need

to preserve the tradition of

separate tournaments.”

USBC plans to develop

additional events that will

coincide with the two main

tournaments in Reno. These

new events will potentially

involve mixed teams and youth

entry options. The lanes of the

Women’s Championships arena

will remain in the Reno-Sparks

Convention Center between the

2013 and 2014 tournaments,

saving construction resources

and allowing for greater

flexibility in scheduling new

events.

USBC received bids from

several cities interested in

hosting the Open and Women’s

Championships.

both events to the same city by

offering two arena settings for

a multi-year agreement. Now

there will be greater opportunities

for couples who might only

be able to afford one bowling

trip a year to travel together

and both have events to enjoy.

“Reno is a fantastic family

destination and our aim is to

develop a reason for every type

of bowler to visit there in 2013

and 2014,” Upson said. “Our

partners in Reno have a great

track record of creating a firstclass

experience for bowlers

and they have done it again by

committing to a second championship

venue.”

Historically, Reno has

proven to be a popular destination

for tournament bowlers.

The Open Championships has

averaged more than 80,000

bowlers, while the Women’s

Championships has averaged

more than 60,000 bowlers in

Reno host years since 1995.

“We’re just tickled to have

these two prestigious bowling

tournaments in the biggest

little city,” Reno Mayor Bob

Cashell said. “I just know

they’ll love visiting Reno and

competing at the National

Bowling Stadium – it’s the

only facility of its kind in the

world.”

Looking ahead to 2013,

USBC plans to investigate

new ideas for the Open and

Women’s Championships,

including potential adjustments

of incentive programs, lane

conditions, squad schedules,

price structure and entry

process. Hosting two major

events in one city should allow

for improved staffing and better

customer service. The focus

will be on providing the best

possible experience for bowlers

in Reno and attracting more

participants to USBC’s national

tournaments.
