June 10, 2008

Dear Youth Bowlers, Parents, and Friends, Let me be the first to welcome you to the 3rd Staten Island USBC Association Youth Champions Dinner. Although this is the fifth dinner for our Staten Island Youth Champions, it is the third for our newly formed organization. In September of 2005 the Staten Island Y.A.B.A. and Staten Island Women’s Bowling Association dissolved their respective organizations to merge and form the Staten Island USBC Association. This new organization serves as the primary bowling membership organization for adult and youth bowlers on Staten Island. Under the direction of the Staten Island USBC Association, the Youth Committee is responsible for administering youth championship tournaments, the scholarship program, youth fundraising, an In-School Bowling program, the Registered Volunteer Program through our Safety First Initiative, and this youth champion’s dinner. The Youth Committee is committed to providing excellent programs and activities for our youth bowlers in the seasons to come. Just a friendly reminder… Please keep in mind all of the available opportunities that we offer our youth bowlers. This year we will be awarding over $3,500 in scholarships at this awards dinner. Most importantly over the course of the season over $100,000 in scholarships are available through numerous programs offered by our local, state, and national affiliates. In closing, I would like to extend my Congratulations to all the youth bowlers here this evening and thank all the volunteer members of the Staten Island USBC Association youth program for their continued hard work and dedication to the youth bowlers of Staten Island

Yours in Bowling,

Frank Wilkinson, President Staten Island USBC Association

Norm Duke
USBC Ambassador

Norm was the youngest person to win a Denny’s PBA Tour title, winning his first title in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1983 at just 18 years and 345 days. Since then he has won a total of 25 PBA Tour titles including two majors—the 1994 Tournament of Champions and 2000 PBA National Championship. He also won the 1993 USBC Masters. In 2003 Norm became the 15th bowler to roll a 300 game on a PBA telecast. A member of the USBC Hall of Fame, he is a two-time PBA Player of the Year and George Young High Average Award winner. He was the PBA’s Harry Smith Point Leader Award winner in 2005-06. With his 2008 U.S. Open win, Norm became just the second bowler in history to win the four Grand Slam events – the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Masters, Tournament of Champions, World Championship and the U.S. Open.

The Man in the Arena

“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again; who knows the great enthusiams, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.”

- Theodore Roosevelt

- Dare Greatly -

Most look up and admire the sta A champion climbs a mountain and grabs one.
