On the men's ballot are TomBaker, King, N.C.; Steve Cook, Granite Bay, Calif.;Jason Couch, Clermont, Fla.; David Husted,Milwaukie, Ore.; Amleto Monacelli, Barquisimeto,Venezuela; and David Ozio, Beaumont, Texas. Thewomen's ballot has one name - Dede Davidson,Buellton, Calif.Uttecht, the first person chosen in the Pioneer cat-egory since 2008, blazed a trail for wheelchair  bowlers everywhere and is regarded as the mostaccomplished such bowler in the sport's history. Hewas confined to a wheelchair after sustaininginjuries in Vietnam in 1970 and began bowling later that same year.He has won the American Wheelchair BowlingAssociation Tournament of Champions 13 times, is a12-time AWBA National Scratch champion and aseven-time AWBA National All-Events champion."I am totally blown away at this honor, and I haveno words to describe how I feel," said Uttecht, whowas inducted into the AWBA Hall of Fame in 1985."This is from someone who when I was first asked to join a bowling league, I said you cannot bowl from awheelchair."A three-time winner at the USBC OpenChampionships - all of which came with fellowelectee Daroszewski - Boresch also has won dozensof local and state titles in Wisconsin. He won the2000 Team All-Events title and the Team and TeamAll-Events titles in 2009 at the OpenChampionships."I'm very honored, but it took me by surprise a lit-tle bit," said Boresch, who currently ranks fifth onthe lifetime average list at the Open Championshipswith 215.43. "I thought I might have a chance to getinto the Hall of Fame one day, but you never think itwill happen. It's quite an honor, especially with myteammate Gary going in as well."In addition to the three Open Championships titleswith Boresch, Daroszewski also won Open titlesthree other times. He won the 1982 Team All-Events,1983 Team All-Events and 1989 Regular Doubleswith Gus Yannaras. He is a member of the WisconsinBowling Association Hall of Fame and has been a bowling center proprietor since 1982."I don't think any bowler ever steps foot in their first tournament with the thought of making it intothe Hall of Fame, so this is an unbelievably, out-standing thing to have happen to me," saidDaroszewski, who has bowled in the OpenChampionships with Boresch since 1992. "It's reallyoverwhelming. It hasn't kicked in yet how big anaccomplishment this is."Feinblum has devoted nearly five decades of serv-ice to bowling at the national, state and local levels,including four years of work on the committees andtask forces that helped develop USBC. She alsoserved on the Women's International BowlingCongress Board of Directors for more than a decadeand most recently served as the chairperson of theUSBC Nominating Committee and the USBC Hallof Fame Committee."I was shocked, and I thought maybe I was dream-ing because I had just gotten out of bed when I gotthe phone call with the news I had been selected,"said Feinblum, who was recently featured in a seg-ment on The Learning Channel focusing on how her  bowling family helped her in her battle with breastcancer. "I just feel very humbled because having been on the USBC Hall of Fame Committee, I knowhow difficult it is to make it because of all the wor-thy candidates."A physical education teacher for more than 35years, Helmer dedicated his life to the growth anddevelopment of youth and collegiate bowling untilhis passing in 2002.He initiated the men's and women's bowling pro-grams at Erie Community College in Buffalo, N.Y.,and led the Kats to 16 National Junior CollegeAthletic Association men's titles and 21 women'stitles.

For years, the best-kept secret has been youth programs: scholarships,high school and collegiate bowling, and simply media coverage of all our wonderful young bowlers.In North Jersey we have the Emma P. Hendrickson (http://www.mor-riscountywba.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfiles/scholarship_appli-cation.pdf), and Charles A. Edwards (http://www.mcba-njbowling.com/applications/ScholApplic.pdf) scholarships.Additionally, there are many national scholarships available from thePBA (the Billy Welu), the USBC (Chuck Hall and Alberta Crowe Starsof Tomorrow), and BWAA (Chuck Pezzano). A simple Google searchwill give you all the information, forms, and past winners.Why bring up scholarships now? Because many deadlines for all appli-cations start in February, and applications need recommendations fromteachers or guidance counselors, and often have essay requirements.Montville High School wants a bowling program. For the life of me Inever understood why some schools didn’t support youth bowling. Their games wouldn’t get rained out. The “little guy” could make the teamalong with the “big guy.” The camaraderie is unparalleled compared withother sports.People often ask me about colleges with bowling programs. In additionto the mega-bowling powerhouse, Wichita State, there are so many other schools with strong bowling curricula such as New Jersey’s ownFairleigh Dickinson, The College of New Jersey, New Jersey City, NJInstitute ot Technology, Stevens Institute, Monmouth, and WilliamPaterson. Look up their contact people and scholarships atwww.bowl.com.Did you know that Bill Wyer of Yale organized the first collegiate bowling tournament held in New Haven, Conn., on April 8, 1916?During the month of December, all Morris County bowling centers thathave sanctioned youth leagues will be hosting Adult/Youth Qualifiers.All sanctioned youth bowlers may get the information from their leaguecoaches. The winners of the in-house qualifiers will be eligible to bowlin the Morris County USBC YA 42nd Annual Adult/Youth Roll-off thatwill be held at Boonton Lanes on Sunday February 5, 2012 (yes-Super Bowl Sunday) with a snow date of February 12, 2012.
