CDB, the new coach of coaches

By Tony Franklin

You probably read in last

week’s Bowling News that

Carolyn Dorin-Ballard has

taken a new position with the

United States Bowling Congress

as the Director

of Coaching.

What you

may not have

seen is where

she plans to

take her new

job and what

it is all about.

With a few

modifications,

this was the

position previously

held by

DFW’s own

David Garber.

As part of the role changes,

Team USA will now be fully

under the direction and coaching

of Rod Ross and his staff.

So the goal for Carolyn will be

to make the coaching program

as strong as it can be for USBC.

CDB was looking for a

job that would allow her

to be home more often yet

still allow her to bowl a fair

CDB, hands-on.

amount of events. She saw

a couple of jobs within the

USBC that peaked her interest,

but felt most qualified for the

Director of Coaching role, so

she applied, interviewed and

ultimately

got the

job. A very

good decision

by the

USBC and

one that

bowling

in general

will

benefit

greatly

from.

what has Carolyn excited about

certification of new coaches

By Tyson Branagan

Staff Writer

Each year on the Wednesday

before Christmas, the members

of the Wednesday Women’s

League at Rowlett Bowl-A-

Rama have made it a tradition

to do something special for a

local organization for Christmas

as part of their community

project. This year, the league

of more than 40 women,

decided to take it beyond the

local community, and make it a

special Christmas for troops in

Afghanistan.

“Several of the gals in the

league have family members

serving in Afghanistan or

know soldiers stationed there,”

said league secretary Nancy

Vermeer. “So we decided to

support our troops there.”

The project started out like

so many other leagues do on

the last league session prior to

Christmas break, where members

bring some kind of snack

or dish to share with everyone

else in the league, and maybe a

and re-certification of existing

coaches,” she said. “We have

all of these certified coaches

all over the country. Roughly

42,000, but we haven’t really

kept up with them to find out

how they are doing, are they

seeing improvement, are they

improving, what do they need

from us. One of the main focus

areas is to stay in more direct

contact with those coaches,

talk to them after

they re-certify, create

some focus groups,

basically have a more

personal touch.” One

of the key benefits of

coaching re-certification

is to help bowlers

know who the actively

engaged coaches are,

and where to find

them. Great ideas and

she just got started.

These are concepts

that you may have

heard before. Coach-

ing will lead to better

bowling, which will

lead to people bowling longer,

which will lead to more people

Vermeer came up with the idea

to add to the yearly tradition

and bring items that can be

donated to various organizations

in the community.

The first year they donated

stuffed animals for the

as the league originated in

Garland. Ever since, they have

picked a cause each year and

Dacy wins

PBA SW

Regional title

By Genie Franklin

The Bowling News columnist,

Clint Dacy cruised

past Chris Hibbitts 238-188

in the final match to win the

PBA Southwest Region Del-

Mar Lanes Challenge (Non

champions event) at Del-Mar

Lanes February 5th & 6th and

collected $2,500.

Hibbitts finished in second

place, winning $1,400.

After qualifying ninth for

match play, Dacy lost only one

game during the elimination

matches when he posted 169

against #1 seed Craig Diver. “I

threw my go to ball, the Black

Widow in practice and in the

first game. I made a couple

of good shots that hooked too

much off the friction so I knew

I needed something smoother.

That’s when I switched to the

Dacy.

Brian Hay

This week’s high man is Brian

Hay with a 300-276-290 for

an 866 series in the Crummy’s

Sports Bar Classic league at

West Acres Lanes. Brian is the

Shipping/Receiving Manager

for Scholfield Auto Plaza that

sells premium autos.

What is your high series?

This is my high series by far; I

think that was my 12th 800.

How many 300’s have you

bowled? Rough guess about 28.

Thoughts on your big night?

When you shoot a series like

that, you don’t even think

that’s going to happen. Your

mind has to be clear; you have

to take it one shot at a time. I

was only trying to shoot 800,

but once I got the strikes to

lock in 800, the rest was icing

on the cake. It’s an unreal

feeling to bowl something like

that.

What ball did you throw?

The Storm XXX

Who drills your balls? I got

the ball from my father, but I

had Kevin Andes at West Acres

plug the thumb and re-drill it.

This is one of the best fitting

balls I have ever had, it fits

perfect.

What is your all-time favorite

bowling ball? The Columbia

Piranha/C, my previous high

series was with that ball, 834.

What is your average in this

league? Currently it’s 227.

What is your all-time high

average? 234

How long have you been

bowling? Since I was three

years-old. My dad, Tom Hay

used to have the pro shop

at Rose Bowl West, and

Northrock, so I grew up at

Rosebowl West watching the

Jensen’s bowl, and wanting to

be just like them.

Who is your favorite pro

bowler? Growing up I idolized

Ameleto Monacelli, but now

I’m a big fan of Tommy Jones, I

love how smooth he is.

Most memorable bowling moment?

I was bowling league at

Flight Lanes and left a pocket

7-10 split then in the next

frame I left another pocket 7-10.

I was so mad I threw it as hard

as I could on the spare, missed

the 10 pin but threw it right

thru the curtain and my ball

was rolling around behind the

machine. It was not a happy

memory, but a memorable one.

Brian’s tip of the week: If

you are consistently leaving

corner pins I think the best

move is to go back on the

approach about four inches.

Most of the time the right move

might be to move a board left

or right, but this move will

allow your ball to start rolling

four inches sooner, and finish a

little stronger in the pocket.

Rock’s Dugout proving that other

sports can work alongside bowling

Staff Writer

For more than 33 years, Joe

Ruocco has run a successful

business inside of various

Wichita, Kansas area bowling

centers, without being directly

related to the sport of bowling

at all. Rock’s Dugout, located

inside of Northrock Lanes in

Wichita, is a sports card and

memorabilia business catering

to sports collectors, and Ruocco

has found a way to successfully

mesh his business with

bowling, even helping business

Tony Brown hammered home

ness, and he is thriving.

“We are seeing many people

coming back to card collecting,”

Ruocco said. “They were

getting frustrated by so many

different companies putting out

cards, but now many brands

have obtained exclusives and

people are coming back.”

The business originated in

November, 1977 in the basement

at Rose Bowl East in

Wichita. At the time, Ruocco

bowled five times per week,

and approached the center

owner and close friend about

the possibility of renting out

a room in the basement just

to see if he could possibly sell

sports cards to bowlers and

other customers. They agreed

on a rent of $50 per month,

so the gamble was small, and

Ruocco set up shop, advertised

in the local newspaper, and

traffic began coming into the

center.

“On day one of the business

I did ten cents in sales on a

Star Wars card,” he said. “I

have been in business ever

since.”

Ruocco remained at that

location until 2003 when Rose

Bowl East was purchased and

torn down to turn the land

into a parking lot. In July

of that year, Frank DeSocio

approached him to ask if he

wanted to bring his business

into Northrock Lanes.

“Northrock has been great

because I’m now up on the

main level as opposed to in the

basement, so that has definitely

helped the business,” said

Ruocco.

Ruocco says that being

inside of a bowling center has

definitely helped the bowling

center’s business, but at the

same time, has helped his own

business, as opposed to being a

standalone shop, because being

in a bowling center is like

being in a mall with the extra

foot traffic.

On the first Sunday of every

even month, Rock’s Dugout

puts on a sports card show

where 17 dealers from Oklahoma,

Texas, Missouri and all

over Kansas come and set up

shop. On average, more than

500 people attend each show,

which is set up in the banquet

room at Northrock Lanes.

They come mainly for

sports cards, but also buy

drinks, food, and even bowl,

and I think that helps the center,”

said Ruocco on the shows.

“Plus the advertising from the

radio and newspapers mention

Northrock Lanes as the location,

and that gets additional

publicity for the center.”

Rock’s Dugout is not

completely void of anything

bowling, however, as hanging

on his wall is the stairwell

handrail from Rose Bowl East

to remember where he started,

along with nearly 1000 bowling

patches, parts of the lanes

from Rose Bowl East, along

with various other things from

bowling that he has collected

over the years.

Ruocco still remains involved

with the sport of bowling

along with running his

business, as he runs a singles

summer league at Northrock,

which just recently had 88

members in a very different

format from typical leagues.

The league is separated into 2

divisions, 49 years of age and

under, and 50 and over, and

four bowlers bowl per pair.

Each game, bowlers receive 40,

30, 20 and 10 points per game,

based on scores versus the

other bowlers.

this league, it’s all about winning,”

he said. “Some of the

every summer.”

Ruocco was also inducted

into the Great Plains USBC Hall

of Fame for his work running

various tournaments and his

work helping grow the sport of

bowling in the Wichita area.

Industry Veteran Phil Cardinale

Starts Radical Bowling

SAN ANTONIO — Industry

veteran Phil Cardinale has

created Radical Bowling LLC,

a new bowling ball company

specializing in the creation

and distribution of highperformance

bowling balls.

Cardinale, who spent the

last three years as President of

Sales and Marketing for 900

Global, left that company at

the end of 2010 to start Radical

Bowling. “After decades

of cumulating knowledge

on the development and

manufacturing of bowling

balls, I felt it was time to use

that experience out on my

own,” Cardinale said. “I wish

to create the best bowling

balls for bowlers of any skill

level, particularly mid- to

high-average bowlers looking

to improve their score and level

of play.”

Early in his career,

Cardinale was employed by

United Airlines and the Eaton

Corporation. But his desire to

be involved in bowling led to

the creation of Track Bowling

in Solon, Ohio, in 1988.

When Track was acquired

by the original Columbia

300, Cardinale stayed on as

President of Sales and invented

and patented the ceramic core.

Cardinale moved on to

manage Dynothane Inc. in

2001. He grew the company

with great success, especially

in serving the international

markets. In addition to

bowling balls, he expanded the

Our 55th Year


A couple of months ago I

wrote an article on sportsmanship

that generated a bit of

buzz including some publicity

in a Chicago newspaper. In

short it was about all the anger

and frustration that bowlers go

through and some of the things

that we do.

So last weekend I went

to Cowtown (not the bowling

center) and watched my

brother-in-law in a team roping

ROWLETT WOMEN’S

Continued from Page 1

continuing to strongly support

in the following years.

“Every year our league has

responded so generously and

I am always proud to present

what we have collected to

the receiving organization,”

Vermeer said on the project.

This particular year, the

women gathered a list of the

soldier’s most needed items

from socks and foot powder, to

puzzle books to candy. “The

gals in the league brought a

ton of items the day we packed

the boxes, the party room at

Bowl-A-Rama was filled with

the items,” said Vermeer.

Using the one price shipping

boxes provided by the post

office, the women filled 22

boxes to the brim in all, with

each box also containing a

Christmas card from the league

members, demonstrating just

how generous the women in

the league are. With the help

of several league members, the

shipping costs were covered,

and that final Wednesday prior

to Christmas, all 22 boxes were

shipped, bound for the troops.

A week later, the women

received word from a Gunnery

Sergeant in the Marines in

a letter back home just how

much of a surprise the boxes

were and how grateful he and

his troops were for all the gifts.

The ladies sent the boxes to

men in commanding positions

knowing they would share

with their troops, and the

women were quite pleased with

just how quickly the troops

received all the gifts.

“I have always said that this

ladies morning league was just

a coffee cup league, sharing

our husbands, children and

parent concerns with each

other while enjoying the sport

of bowling,” Vermeer said of

the women. “But, year after

year these ladies show how

caring they are for the community

around us.”

competition.

I know how frustrating it

can be to perform badly and

how easy it is to lose your

temper.

So you can imagine my

surprise to see how calm, cool,

and collected these folks are in

the heat of battle. Most of the

time you can’t tell whether a

bull rider just had the ride of

his life or got bucked off in two

seconds.

The demeanor and class of

these guys are second to none.

Maybe it’s the lack of money in

their sport that keeps the class

of people blue collar, but then

again bowling is blue collar

too.

So why is there a difference

in how each of us reacts to

defeat?

I know I’m going to strive

to be a better sportsman in the

agony of defeat. Then again

actions are louder than words.

This was the first time I

really watched the competitive

side of a rodeo.

While it was very interesting

to see some of the technical

aspects of the sport all I

was able to focus on was the

amount of pressure it takes to

win.

As a bowler we pay an

entry fee and bowl somewhere

between 2 and 60 games to

determine a winner.

Although a bad shot or two

could cost you the tournament

it’s nothing like the pressure

in a rodeo. The guys and gals

drive hours and hours to enter

into an event that will likely

be decided in less than 15

seconds.

There are no do-overs or

mulligans. The participant

rides up and if they miss one

head while roping or one turn

too wide in a barrel race then

they are out of the tournament.

Paul Burnett’s first rate 241-

254-274 = 769 session ended as

the number-one set of the week

at USA Bowl in the Lambda

It almost requires perfection

to win. At least in bowling

you can have an open frame or

even a bad game, and still win

the tournament.

On this night my brotherin-law

paid his entry and ran

one time as the header and

once as the heeler. Both times

his partner either missed the

head or missed the legs so in

less than 10 seconds they were

eliminated.

A two hour drive and 150

dollars and the event was over.

That’s like a one frame tournament,

and getting judged on

how pretty it was.

It’s a tough life, but you

can’t argue with their toughness,

mentally and physically.

Last week I was asked by

my company to put together a

3 to 4 minute presentation of

some new technologies that we

were offering.

Although I spill my guts

about my life to all of you

every week, it’s still nothing

like speaking in public.

Although I was blessed with

a small gift of gab, I’m still

not very confident standing in

front of a room full of people

and speaking.

Anyone who has ever done

this knows how nerve racking

it can be. For me there are

three things that I battle when

speaking.

First is the racing heartbeat.

My heart starts racing so fast

that I have to take deep breaths

to keep my composure.

This leads to the second

problem which is speeding up

the speech so I can get it over

with quicker.

But the worst thing I

struggle with is shaky voice.

Most of you know what I’m

talking about. As you start

to speak you get the shakes

and consequently your voice

vibrates and it makes it very

easy for people to know you’re

nervous.

It makes it uncomfortable

for everyone in the room. The

only advice I have received

is that the more you do it

the less nervous you will be.

However, if anyone has any

tips I would love to hear them

STORY

bowled? 288

Thoughts on your big night?

I will have to give some credit

to Storm; I was using the new

Anarchy. I have been doing a

lot of practicing, working on

my game for some upcoming

tournaments. I needed a double

in the tenth to shoot 800, and

left a big wrap ten on the first

shot.

What ball did you throw?

Storm Anarchy, I have had it

about a month, I love that ball.

Who drills your balls? I did,

I work in the pro shop for John

Hood, who is also my coach.

What is your all-time favorite

bowling ball? That would have

to be the Storm Cell Pearl. It is

a great benchmark ball for me;

it holds the line and is easy to

read on the lanes.

What is your average in this

league? 215

What is your all-time high

average? 200

How long have you been

bowling? Seven or eight years;

I started bowling with some

friends who decided they

wanted to bowl in a league. I

then thought that I should get

a ball because if I was going to

bowl I wanted to be good.

Who is your favorite pro

bowler? Pete Weber, he has

the best hand in bowling, I

really appreciate that part of

his game.

Rebecca’s tip of the week:

My big tip is that you have to

not care just the right amount.

I have to stay loose, if I get

tense, or get nervous about the

shot, then my arm swing won’t

be free, and I won’t make a

good shot.

Tyson Branagan

Last week’s high man

was Tyson Branagan at AMF

Lewisville with a 300-279-237

for an 816 series. Tyson works

AMF Desoto Lanes

121 Northgate Dr.

DeSoto, TX 75115

972-780-8090

full-time as the Manager of The

Bowling Shop at AMF Lewisville

Lanes, and is also a Staff

Writer for The Bowling News.

What is your high series? 834

that I shot back in December,

I’ve shot 7 800’s.

How many 300’s have you

bowled? I think 22 now.

Thoughts on your big night?

It was hard for me to miss; I

really thought I had a shot to

shoot 850. I was thinking about

changing balls going into the

last game to a ball that goes

longer and finishes stronger,

but decided not to because I

was in 22 bracket finals. The

team I bowled with shot 3666

that night, which is a Denton

County record. It was more fun

bowling the team series than

the individual series.

What ball did you throw? A

Hammer Taboo, it has a Black

Widow core and really fantastic

shell, it is extremely forgiving

and versatile.

Who drills your balls? I do

at The Bowling Shop at AMF

Lewisville.

What is your all-time

favorite bowling ball? The

Taboo is quickly charging up

the list, but I have to give it to

the Brunswick Zone Classic. I

won the TAT in Las Vegas and

shot 820 at USBC Nationals in

Corpus Christie with the Zone

Classic and made over $30,000

with it.

What is your average in this

league? 239, but I am just a sub

in this league.

What is your all-time high

average? 231

How long have you been

bowling? 18 years now, my

mother bowled once a week

and got me into the game. It

was something to do on the

weekends, and I developed a

natural talent, so I stuck with

it.

Who is your favorite pro

bowler? I was always a big

Parker Bohn fan. There is

something about just how fluid

he is; it’s a real shame that he

just hasn’t been on TV much

lately.

Most memorable bowling

moment? Winning the True

Amateur Tournament(TAT) for

$22,000 in Las Vegas 2004. It

was a brutal week, it took me

nine tries to make the cut and

nothing was going right. My

friend Robby Patterson and I

decided to bowl that last squad,

both ended up making the cut,

he advanced four more rounds,

and I ended up winning.

Tyson’s tip of the week:

Develop a winning attitude and

a refuse to lose game plan. I

got this tip a few months back,

and it has been a real difference

maker for me. You need to

focus on each and every shot as

if that was the shot to win the

tournament.

$1000 for second. The tournament

features 2-game double

elimination matches and had

46 entries with 9 cashers in the

one-day event. “Kevin(Allen)

and I thought the tournament

ran very smooth and there were

a lot of exciting matches and

lots of talent. I love this format,

because it doesn’t matter how

big your scores are each round

as long you are at least 1 pin

better than the your opponent,”

said SWPBT tournament codirector,

Paul Henderson.

This format is a favorite

amongst most of the participants

for that very reason, “It’s

my favorite format because

I only have to worry about

the guy across from me,” said

runner-up Branagan. Tyson

said that he bowled 8 matches,

but got fortunate to get into the

final match, “I bowled Ricky

Kay in the semi-final and he

shot 260 at me the first game,

but I shot 270 the second game

to get past him,” he said.

The champion, however,

is normally not a fan of this

format, “I have generally not

had good success in double

elimination tournaments, I

always seem to lose one of

my first two matches and

then I am bowling out of the

loser’s bracket the rest of the

way. This time I just put my

headphones on, focused with

no distractions, and went all

the way through the winner’s

bracket without losing a

match,” said Nephew.

Other cashers were Ricky

Kay in third for $700, Chris

Johnson fourth for $400,

fifth/sixth was Frisco Doug Rice

and Robert McBride $275 each,

and seven through ninth was

Johnny Hanna, Andrew Lowy,

Chris “SWJ” Hibbitts $200 each.

Cowtown did a great job

catering to the players, with

a fair condition that featured

a moderate scoring condition.

This allowed for multiple style

differences to be successful

as Nephew and Kay play

straighter and Branagan and

CJ can hook it off the lane.

“My toughest match was the

winner’s bracket final against

Tyson and CJ, they both were

playing their A-games from

deep inside, and I had to play

what felt like my D-game. I

shot 258 the first game and was

feeling really good, but they

charged back the second game

and I had to hold on to win the

match,” said Nephew.

“We loved the way the

folks at Cowtown Bowling

Palace treated us and our

bowlers. Without great center

management and great bowlers,

we can not run such successful

events,” said a thankful

Henderson.

Along with the tournament

cashers, there were also some

give-aways, Brian Bobbitt won

a Hammer Jigsaw Trap for being

the first full-paid entry, Gid

Rash also won a Jigsaw Trap

for having the highest losing

score in the first two rounds,

and Paul Fleming won a Hammer

3-ball roller in a free raffle

for all entrants.

A Star in the Making

There is a young budding

star in Salina, KS, by the name

Ryan Franzen. He is the owner

of three 800’s and three 300

games, and guess what, he’s

only 13 years old!

He’s been bowling since

he was three years-old so he

already has a ton of experience.

His mother Nancy was

the Youth Director at All-Star

Lanes in Salina, and figures

the fact that she was always

at the bowl probably had

something to do with his quick

improvement. “His dad and I

both bowl, along with his two

brothers and older sister. He

bowls in three leagues and

probably practices another 20-

30 games a week,” said proud

mom, Nancy.

As for when the light went

off and the young Franzen

decided that bowling was for

him, “about three years ago, I

had been bowling really well

and decided that I wanted to

do this my entire life, and I

haven’t stopped since,” he said.

At the age of 12, which was

just last year, he became the

youngest bowler in the state of

Kansas to shoot an 800 series,

and last month he shot 834 at

All Star Lanes in Salina, KS.

To say he has improved rapidly

would be an understatement,

but has had some good coaching.

Local bowling icon, Rick

Steelsmith has been coaching

the young left-hander for the

last couple of years, and as his

mother put it “Rick told me

that he is finally getting coachable,

meaning he is listening

and taking his advice.” “Rick

is a really good coach and has

given me lots of things to work

on, like my arm-swing and foot

work,” said Ryan. “Richard

Sims has also been a very good

coach, and has been helping

BOWLING BUFFS…

The Bowlin’ Buffs have been very busy this spring semester; we have

been to the east and west and everywhere in between the last six weeks. The

Blue and Gold Classic in South Bend IN is where we will start, one of the oldest

tournaments in the country, WT made the long trip and finished a respectable

15th for both the men and women out of 60 teams that participated. Wendy

Shelton from Albuquerque, NM led all WT women in averages and Taylor

Coggins from Burleson, TX led all WT men in averages with a 204 average.

West Texas A&M University

BOWLING

Just getting back from South Bend, we turn around and head to Las Vegas for the Rebel Classic. The teams

bowled much better as both finished in the top 5. The women finished 3rd, while the men finished 5th. Kate

Mulcahy from New Hampshire and Nicollette Yurich from Oklahoma City led WT women in averages with a 206

average. Both Kate and Nicollette made all-tournament team. Aaron Johnston from Ft. Smith, AR led WT men in

averages with a nice 220 average, he also placed 4th on the all-tournament team.

With the confidence of the top 5 finish in a Tier I tournament, WT headed to Ft. Worth to bowl at Cowtown

Bowling Palace for the SWIBC Championships. WT did not disappoint, with a 1st place finish for the women and

a 2nd place finish for the men. Hannah Stedman from Albuquerque, NM led WT women in averages with a 216

average. And for the men, we had Jimmy Ewell from Austin, TX lead all WT men with a 234 average and Taylor

Coggins right behind his teammate with a 223 average, both making all-tournament team. At the conclusion of

the Championship tournament, the All-Conference awards were handed out. West Texas Men and Women were

overall Conference Champions, with Jimmy Ewell making the All-Conference team and WT’s Hannah Stedman was

Bowler of the Year in the SWIBC Conference.

Without having time to enjoy our conference titles, we were off to Indianapolis, IN to bowl in the Hoosier

Classic. Perhaps the biggest collegiate tournament in the country with 80 of the best teams entered, this will

be a true test of WT’s talents. This is the last regular tournament before we start our Sectional and National

tournaments, so a good finish in the Hoosier will give us the confidence we need going into the last part of the

season. Out of 80 teams, WT finished 13th for the men and 18th for the women. With Jimmy Ewell leading WT

men with a 210 average and barely missing the All-tournament

team by 5 pins. Leading the WT women was Hannah Stedman

with a 183 average.

We now have 3 weeks before WT heads to Euless, TX to

bowl in the West Sectional where we will need to finish in the

top 4 to qualify to go to Nationals in Columbus, GA. Between

now and then you will see all of our players at the lanes

practicing and getting their games sharp for this important

tournament. Until next time…

Mark Scroggins, WT Head Coach

me forever, especially when I

get lost and need help on the

lanes.” Even though it doesn’t

seem that he gets lost very

often.

Ryan and he good friend

Zach Sims are regulars in the

KCO Youth Scholarship tournaments

that are held at different

centers in Kansas and Missouri,

and both have seen good

success. So if you think he’s

been bowling good so far, it’s

most likely only going to get

better from here. The family

has decided that the time is

right for Ryan to step out of the

small pond and bowl against

the big boys. He’s scheduled

to bowl the SW PBA Regional

in Junction City, KS on April

30th. It will be interesting to

see how he fares against the

strong competition of a professional

event.

“I like having fun when

I bowl and the competitive

people I bowl with. It’s in my

blood. I love it so much that I

don’t want to play any other

sports,” he said.

As for who his favorite

bowler is, well that’s an easy

one, Parker Bohn III, “he has

been good for so long, and I

want to be just like.”

Indianapolis will host

USBC Junior Gold, Youth

Open in 2012

ARLINGTON — The biggest

youth bowling tournaments

in the nation, the USBC Junior

Gold Championships and the

USBC Youth Open, will return

to Indianapolis in 2012.

Woodland Bowl, Western

Bowl and Expo Bowl will be

the host centers for Junior Gold

with the semifinals and finals

to be contested at Woodland

Bowl. Expo Bowl will be the

site of the Youth Open.

The three centers played

host to the events in 2009 and

2010.

“Indianapolis has been a

popular destination for our

youth bowlers,” International

Bowling Campus Director

of Youth Development Chad

Murphy said. “The staff at

Royal Pin, which operates the

centers, has done a tremendous

job with our events and we

look forward to again working

with the centers on these

outstanding events.”

The Junior Gold

Championships will run July

14-20, 2012. The Youth Open is

scheduled for July 13-29, 2012.

Western Bowl also will

host the Survivor Tournament,

a side event open to any USBC

Youth bowler, in addition to

Junior Gold qualifying.

The USBC Junior Gold

Championships features the

elite youth bowlers in the

nation competing for national

titles and spots on Junior Team

USA. The tournament awarded

$125,000 in scholarships to

participants last year.

The USBC Youth Open,

which awarded more than

$100,000 in scholarships

last year, is the national

championship for youth

bowlers. The tournament

is open to all USBC Youth

members and there is no

qualifying. It has four averagebased

divisions and bowlers

are placed into a division based

on skill, not age or gender.

Each participant bowls nine

games – three games each

of singles, doubles and four-

player team.

wanting to bowl. It’s a wonderful

idea that the vast majority

of people will probably agree

with, but have we actually seen

the results we wanted…Carolyn

answered the question before

I asked it. “In bowling we

come up with these great

programs and ideas, roll them

out, and then see if they can

fly on their own. There is no

follow-up, what can we do to

make it better for you, are you

happy, these are all questions

that need answers, and we

will make that a major area of

focus.”

The Youth Education

Services (YES) Fund led by IBC

Director of Youth Development,

Chad Murphy is a wonderful

program in its infancy. They

will be a partner and hopeful

benefactor of the increased

focus on coaches. In the case

of YES, they are looking for

volunteer coaches to help with

the development of bowlers 12

years old and younger. The increased

focus and response that

Dorin-Ballard hopes to bring

to all levels of coaching should

be an enabler to Murphy and

the YES program. It’s all about

stimulating those that don’t

bowl today to try the sport,

learn the sport, and love the

sport. After all, what’s a better

family sport than bowling?

Carolyn won’t be alone in

her new endeavor; she will

have a staff of approximately

five that will be focused on

several areas. “We have

programs for women bowlers

because the physical makeup

of a woman bowler and teaching

a woman and is different

from men. Also, we are still

investigating the mechanics

of the two-handed bowler and

how it affects the body, to

name a few,” she said.

There are tons of great

coaches out there that we don’t

even know about, and I’m quite

sure that they have great ideas

that no one else has thought of.

We need to get the feedback,

collect the data and see what’s

the best direction to go,” said

Dorin-Ballard.

You can bet that CDB will

be out there mixing it up with

the coaches, the bowlers, and

with the sport of bowling in

general. This position demands

a people-oriented conversation

initiator, and I don’t know

many better than Carolyn.

Bowling needs passionate, motivated

people to lead their key

positions, and we just found a

good one. Stay tuned for more

from your USBC Director of

Coaching.

ARLINGTON — For the first

time in his career, Team USA’s

Bill O’Neill of Southampton,

Pa., has been named to the US

two titles on the Lumber

Bowlers Association Tour in

2010 and three gold medals

In earning her All-America

Championships.

Liz Johnson of Cheektowaga,

N.Y., Carolyn Dorin-

I can’t say that I watched

every PBA event on ABC

during the glory days of

bowling because of military

commitments. Between 1962

and 1997 during the heyday of

Chris Schenkel and Bo Burton I

was in Germany, Vietnam and

Korea. I now try to catch those

events on ESPN Classic.

The things I notice most

about those earlier events were

the accuracy and consistency

of the bowlers. It was a time

when shot making and spare

shooting were extremely

important. The occasional wall

shot was the only shot considered

lucky at the time. There

was no area shot. You were not

rewarded for throwing a bad

shot. A 210 versus 202 was a

good game.

When Glenn Allison rolled

his unapproved 900 series

in 1982 it was considered an

almost impossible fete. Now

18 bowlers have recorded that

series. Many of us only recognize

Allison’s series and so

should bowling’s integers.

Schenkel and Burton were a

By Don Wright

class act in the booth. Schenkel

was not only knowledgeable

about the sport; he truly cared

for the bowlers. Burton, soft

spoken, smart, and savvy

enough to know when to talk

and when to keep quiet and let

the moment speak for itself. He

was so good at his job that he

was nominated for and Emmy

four times (1982, 1983, 1985

and 1987).

The prize money during the

early days was minimal. Don

Carter was the leading money

winner in 1962 having competed

in 32 events, winning less

that $50,000. It wasn’t until

1975 that we saw Earl Anthony

become the first bowler to earn

over $100,000.

Okay, so I enjoy “the good

old days,” and look at bowling

today in an entirely different

light. For one thing the game

is much easier today than it

was back in 1962. Lane conditions

dictate a lot of that as

does the so called high-tech

bowling balls. Because of those

“improvements” it made bad

bowlers good, good bowlers

If you don’t want to get locked into a long

league. Join a short season league.

excellent, and gave some excellent

bowlers huge egos.

Averages were inflated; honor

scores went through the roof,

leagues declined and competitive

bowling suddenly became a

recreation in the eyes of most.

The broadcast booth has

become comedy central rather

than a tool to educate and

inform viewers about the

actual sport of bowling. Yelling

“Hambone” and “Yahtzee”

and reciting three or four

words of the Finnish language

won’t earn you an Emmy

nomination.

So what does all this mean?

Maybe nothing to some of you,

but to me it has changed my

mind about the sport. Where

as I tried to never miss an ABC

telecast, now they don’t seem

that important to me.

My league bowling has

dropped off to subbing maybe

once or twice a year on a senior

league where as I used to bowl

four nights a week and also sub.

Watching someone bowl 300

once drew everyone in the center

to that pair of lanes, now

you are lucky if anyone notices

except those on the same pair.

Honor scores are so prolific

that it completely changed how

and what the USBC awards.

Let’s face it us die hard

bowling fans are few and far

between, I had a chance last

week to talk to a man who

bowled almost every night of

the week and was a very good

bowler. He hasn’t bowled in

more than ten years. I asked

him why he quit and he said “I

just didn’t enjoy it any more.”

I’m not quite at that stage

yet. I still enjoy the game, my

bowling friends, my association

and the memories of being

“On the Road Again,” as Willie

would say. The competition

just isn’t as important as it

used to be and at my old age I

really enjoy my senior league,

you know that one I just sub in

once in a blue moon.

Well, that’s my perspective.

pleasure.

Construction begins at USBC

Women’s Championships

ARLINGTON — During the

next few weeks, The Oncenter

Convention Center in Syracuse,

N.Y., will be transformed into a

state-of-the-art 48-lane bowling

facility that will be the

home of the 2011 United States

Bowling Congress Women’s

Championships.

On Monday, Feb. 21, crews

started bringing in more than

30 truckloads of materials

needed to construct the venue,

which also includes vendor

and office space, a squad room,

a locker area and spectator

seating.

The finished product will be

the biggest stage in women’s

bowling, and the 2011 Women’s

Championships is expected

to bring more than 30,000

bowlers to Syracuse during its

88-day run from April 7-July 3.

The amount of lumber

required for the venue is

enough to construct at least

five three-bedroom homes, and

more than six miles of wiring

is required to handle the

tournament’s electrical needs.

The first piece of the

installation process will be

the tournament’s custom

scoreboards. The scoreboards

are comparable to the oversized

screens often found

in sports venues and arenas

across the country, but offer a

clearer picture thanks to the

latest technology. They feature

enhanced graphics with 4.4

trillion colors and streaming

video capabilities and make

up the world’s largest mobile

scoreboard of its kind.

The setup also includes a 12

feet by 9 feet, high-definition

video display screen over the

tournament’s traditional Center

Aisle.

Construction on the 48

championship lanes was

scheduled to begin Feb. 28.

The 2011 event marks the

second time the tournament

will be held in a conventioncenter

setting. Prior to last

year’s event in El Paso, Texas,

the tournament was contested

in traditional bowling centers

when not held at the National

Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nev.

(every third year since 1997).

The tournament first was held

in 1916, and 2011 will be the

92nd year of competition.

The move to the convention-center

setting helped boost

the prestige and excitement

that surrounds the Women’s

Championships and really gave

the event a championship feel,”

said Brian Lewis, USBC Managing

Director of Tournaments.

“Participants enjoyed the new

look in 2010, and we hope

to make this year even more

memorable.”

The Women’s Championships

returns to New York

state for the first time since

1996. It previously was held

in Syracuse in 1940 and 1954

with 1,185 and 4,538 five-player

teams, respectively.

World Bowling Tour rankings

ARLINGTON — After two

events on the new World

Bowling Tour presented by

the World Tenpin Bowling

Association, Finland’s Mika

Koivuniemi maintained his

lead at the top of the men’s

rankings, while Carolyn Dorin-

Ballard of the United States

moved into the women’s lead.

Koivuniemi, who won the

season-opening tournament

at the Brunswick Ballmaster

Open, took third place at the

second event of the season, the

United States Bowling Congress

Masters, and has a total of

85 ranking points. In the

stepladder finals of the USBC

Masters, which were aired

nationally on ESPN, Koivuniemi

lost in the semifinals to

American Tom Hess, 254-219.

Sean Rash of the United

States retained his second

place position in the rankings

with 51 points. Rash finished

second to Koivuniemi at the

Ballmaster Open and took 20th

place at the USBC Masters.

Hess, who won the Masters

with a 230-206 victory over

fellow American Jack Jurek,

moved into third place with 50

points, while Chris Barnes of

the United States sits in fourth

place with 45 points.

In the women’s rankings,

Dorin-Ballard is the only player

who has competed in both events

to open the season and has a total

of 70 ranking points. She finished

second among the women at the

Ballmaster Open and then took

fourth in the women’s field at the

USBC Masters.

Finland’s Krista Pollanen, who

earned the top ranking points

at the Ballmaster Open, is tied

for second place with American

Kelly Kulick with 50 points.

Kulick topped the women’s field

at the USBC Masters and finished

JOWDY’S JOURNAL

By John Jowdy, PBA Hall of Fame

Plans are underway for 50

years of Women’s Pro Bowling

Exhibit scheduled to open in

June 2011 during Bowl Expo.

This exhibit is long overdue.

Women professional bowlers

have played a major role in

promoting the game and

richly deserve an exhibit that

features their accomplishments.

The 50 years of Women’s Pro

Bowling Exhibit will display

rare photographs and artifacts

from the greatest bowlers of

all time, including moments

that made a difference and

the impact on television. It

will remember the pioneers

that made all that followed

possible and will celebrate the

tremendous contributions of

the key people who created the

organized tours. The exhibit

will honor the female legends

by showcasing the top bowlers

from each decade including

Hall of Fame members, Bowlers

of the Year, Bowlers of the

Decade, and significant record

holders. The individuals most

responsible for over-seeing this

great project are Chairman of

the committee, Jim Goodwin,

Fran Deken, John Sommer

and none other than Joan

Romeo, who, in my opinion

is the most successful, most

energetic, and certainly the

most UNDERPAID promoter of

events in all of bowling. Romeo

leaves no stones unturned in

her relentless effort to further

the growth of bowling, both

in America, as well as other

foreign countries. Nonetheless,

the aforementioned work

closely with Pat Cinello, Chairman

of the Executive Board,

Keith Hamilton Vice Chair,

and Kelli Briscoe, the new

curator of the museum. All are

involved to some degree and

all provide input. Joan Romeo

spearheaded the fundraising

and promotion. She is never

shy in her presentations to any

casino, bowling manufacturer,

major corporation, or any

bowling related business. More

often than not, she succeeds in

selling her product. Romeo is

no neophyte in public relations

or promotional undertakings.

From 1985 to 1987, she was

Hosted by

Terrell Bowling Center

Presented by

City, a suburb of Los Angeles.

Pearlman Wohl’s clients

included Air New Zealand ,

Lamps Plus, and Buick Motor

Division. From 1988 to 1995,

Joan became Vice President

of The Pearlman Group,

Incorporated, a company that

represented Chevrolet Motor

Division, Permanent Charities

Committee of the Entertainment

Industry, Sterling

Vineyards, and Ticketmaster.

In 1995, she started her own

company, concentrating

principally in bowling related

projects. Her clients include

Master Industries, Twelve

Strike, CWBA, Corbin Bowl,

USA Bowling, and FIQ. She

is currently President of the

California Bowling Writers, is a

member of the Bowling Writers

Association of America Board

of Directors, a member of BPAA

International Committee, and,

as previously stated, a member

of the International Bowling

Museum and Hall of Fame

committee for the new exhibit,

50 Years of Women’s Pro Bowling.

Perhaps there is added

incentive to Joan Romeo’s

passion for the aforementioned

exhibit. She is the mother

of Robin Romeo, one of the

greatest female bowlers in the

history of the game. Robin is
