Happy Birthday Pete Weber in Winning the PBA50 Treasure Island Resort & Casino Open
By Bill Vint - PBA

Matthew Peduto Hammered 300, 300 At Majestic Lanes
HOPELAWN, NJ – Matthew Peduto blasted games of 300-300192-231 to end the session with a 1023 series in the 400 Doubles League at Majestic Lanes. Angelo Fallacaro Jr. rolled 238279-242-201-960 followed by Nick Antonucci tossing 227-248247-204-926, Jeff Scire 265-265910, Kelly Daunno 238-237-260878, and Nichole Toto bowled 248-235-851.

WELCH, Minn. – Pete Weber had a very nice birthday last week, winning his second PBA50 Tour title in the Treasure Island Resort & Casino Open presented by Brunswick to lock up PBA50 Rookie of the Year honors and clinch a berth in the new PBA50 Finals which will be held as part of the PBA World Series of Bowling V in early November. The now 51-year-old St. Ann, Mo., resident defeated Robert Harvey of Boise, Idaho, 243-227, at Island Xtreme Bowl in the PBA50 Tour’s final event of the 2013 season to claim the $7,500 first prize. But what made the victory extra special was Weber’s victory over fellow PBA Hall of Famer and nemesis Walter Ray Williams Jr. in the semifinal round. “My birthday was complete when I beat Walter,” said Weber, who has beaten Williams only twice in 11 head-to-head matches in PBA Tour televised contests. I bowled good all day. It seemed like I shot 240s all day, but on the scoring condition we had here, 240 wasn’t always a guaranteed winner. Walter shot a lot better
By Lucas Wiseman - USBC HENDERSON, Nev. - Team USA's Bill O'Neill successfully defended his men's singles title at the 2013 World Tenpin Bowling Association World Championships. O'Neill defeated Germany's Bodo Konieczny, 228-192, to win the gold medal at Sunset Station's Strike Zone Bowling Center. Sweden's Martin Larsen and Korea's Shin Seung-Hyeon shared

than his score. He just didn’t carry, and fortunately I did. “This is the third time we’ve had a (PBA) finals on my birthday,” Weber added, “and I’ve won titles all three times, so I kind of like bowling on my birthday.” The victory allowed Weber to lock up the PBA50 Rookie of the Year title, which is based on the competition points standings. And he earned 16 Player of the Year points, which allowed him to pass Lennie Boresch Jr. of Kenosha, Wis. (who lost in the Round of 8), for the third birth in
the bronze medals after losing in the semifinals. In the gold-medal match, O'Neill got off to a quick start and built an early lead, relieving the pressure of having to perform down the stretch. By the time he reached the final frame, O'Neill just needed eight pins on his final shot and tossed a strike. "I didn't think I would make the medal round halfway through the

the PBA50 Finals, a special ESPN-televised event which will be conducted during the PBA World Series at South Point Casino, Hotel and Bowling Center in early November. Williams, who clinched his second straight PBA50 Player of the Year title a week earlier in Decatur, Ill., and Venezuela’s Amleto Monacelli earned the first and second berths in the PBA50 Finals. “I’m very happy with my rookie year,” Weber added. “I bowled in six tournaments and made the top four five times. The only way it could have been better would have been to win every one, but I’ll take it.” Weber won his first PBA50 Tour title, and first major as a 50and-older player, in the USBC Senior Masters in June. Another honor was decided Wednesday when Tim Kauble of Marion, Ohio, finished in the top eight to become the PBA50 Tour’s first Super Senior Player of the Year, nipping PBA Hall of Famer Dale Eagle of Tavares, Fla. The honor for players ages 60 and older was based upon the tour’s competition points standings.
day," said O'Neill, who bowled a 300 in the final game of qualifying to make the medal round. "It was quite a different experience this time around, but I'll certainly take it." Even though he lost in the final match, Konieczny was all smiles after earning the silver medal. He helped lead Germany to bronze medals in doubles and team at the last World Championships in 2010 in Munich, Germany.

In the semifinals, O'Neill defeated Shin, 181-155, in a low-scoring match, while Konieczny knocked

off Larsen, 209-183, in easy fashion. Korea's Ryu Seo-Yeon won the women's singles title.

August 28 - September 3, 2013

ARLINGTON, Texas Starting August 1, 2014, the high score awards given to United States Bowling Congress adult members for a 300 game, 800 series or 900 series will become once-in-alifetime awards. This change comes as part of USBC's strategy to focus resources on national governing body services. As part of the change to the high score awards program, any USBC member who received an award in one of the high score achievement categories as an adult prior to August 1, 2014, will not receive an award for that achievement again. "With this change, USBC takes another meaningful step toward our vision of redefining the organization," USBC President Andrew Cain said. "I want to clearly emphasize that cost savings was only a small factor in the board's decisionmaking process approving the change. This is primarily about a philosophical shift to make USBC membership about supporting and protecting the sport. "The board believes this adjustment to the high score awards program provides a good balance of preserving an organizational tradition while moving toward USBC's vision for the future." The 11-in-a-row award also will be eliminated as part of the changes. All 300 games and 800 series at the USBC Open and Women's Championships will continue to be recognized and are not considered part of the once-in-a-lifetime policy. "Given that more than 50,000 certified perfect games are rolled in a typical season, the board agrees it is unnecessary for the national governing body to provide awards for near perfection with the 11-in-a-row," Cain said. "We also believe special recognition is appropriate at USBC Championships, since these prestigious events are conducted in special venues on uniquely challenging conditions." Associations still will be required to submit 300 game, 800 series or 900 series achievements so the bowler's record can be updated with each accomplishment. The 11in-a-row achievement will not be recognized at the national level effective August 1, 2014. Members who already have received once-in-a-lifetime recognition for a high score will have the ability to purchase additional awards for subsequent high score achievements. Sport Bowling awards will remain unchanged for the 2014-2015 season, with the exception of the elimination of the 11-in-a-row award.

Pins and puns. Two people, one a struggling professional bowler, won a million dollars in a lottery. When asked what they were going to do with all the money, the first happily described how he was going to quit work at once, spend a lot of time fishing and playing golf, take life easy, and live on the new found wealth. The bowler scratched his head, thought a bit, then answered, "I guess I'll just keep bowling on the tour until the money is all gone." The reason many bowlers fail is because they keep trying to teach the other bowler when they should be teaching themselves. And that's why bowling instruction is cheap. The supply exceeds the demand. For every bowler, there are two instructors. Any tournament director will quickly tell you that most bowlers are honest. Then why do they have so Many strict rules? Easy answer .To keep the bowlers honest. Nothing shortens a long bowling story as quickly as the unexpected arrival of the bowler who unknowingly was the central figure of the former long story. You don't have to learn where all the bad spots or bad areas are on a bowling lane. Just learn where the good ones are. The nightmare that haunts all top bowlers is that their last big game will be their last big game. Eventually there will be a bowler's head on some mountain --Even if they are forced to enlarge the mountain --- or shrink the head. Bowling points to ponder. If it doesn't matter whether you win or lose, then don't bother to keep score. An optimist is a person who starts building a 5 million dollar bowling center with a mere 5 million dollars. Wouldn't it be nice if some of the self-professed experts on pro bowling and pro tournaments took in a pro tournament more than once a year or so? In some bowling centers everything works when it comes to scoring. In others, nothing works. And that's why averages from place to place can vary as much as 40 points. One thing you can still get cheaply is that extra frame of bowling you thought the deskman wouldn't notice. Who is in worse shape than the bowler-golfer who shoots in the 130s in both sports? A bowler can usually tell how good his reputation is by how difficult it is for him to live up to it. in most sports the spectator is fulfilled through identification with the player in action rather than through the action. That helps watchers feel like they are doers. In bowling, people are doers, in the action, and they can also be watchers, so they gain from both acftvities. I still can't get over the sight of a bowler pulling up to a tournament site in a $300 car, and then unloading $3,000 worth of bowling equipment.
