Osku Palermaa Wins PBA Shark Championship
By Bill Vint - PBA Media Relations
LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Finland’s Osku Palermaa, Europe’s premier two-handed bowler, survived a 173-149 battle with top qualifier Dan MacLelland of Windsor, Ontario, to win his first PBA Tour title in the PBA Shark Championship at South Point Bowling Center. Widely considered the most difficult of the PBA’s five so-called “animal” lane conditioning patterns, the Shark took a bite out of the entire field of power players. In the end, it was Palermaa’s ball speed and ability to loft the ball down the lane, using his two-handed technique, that made the difference as four splits killed MacLelland’s bid for his first PBA Tour title. With his victory, Palermaa accomplished his primary objective in traveling to the United PBA photo States to bowl in the multi-event PBA World Finland’s two-handed star bowler Oksu Palermaa beat Series of Bowling: an opportunity to also bowl PBA’s most difficult Shark Pattern to win WSB event. in the $1 million PBA Tournament of Champions Jan. 15-22 at Red Rock Lanes in Las 10th frame gave Palermaa a 182-176 victory and a Vegas.

NYS USBC Associations Produce IndustryFirst Online Scholarship Application
Deadline to Apply for $27K in Awards is Feb. 1 DECEMBER 7, 2010 -- New York State’s three United States Bowling Congress associations have developed a user-friendly, online method for students to apply for college scholarships for the 2010-11 season and beyond. “We are proud to announce that the New York State USBC Joint Scholarship Committee has formulated the bowling industry’s first online joint scholarship application,” said Frank Wilkinson, Empire State USBC Bowling Association President. “Leaders from all three state associations -- the Empire State USBC, New York State USBC Women’s Bowling Association and New York State USBC Youth Association -- have been instrumental in making this happen.” Last year, Wilkinson spearheaded the effort to produce the nation’s first online youth scholarship application for the Empire State USBC BA. Wilkinson said the joint online application is accessible at www.bowlny.com (the Empire State USBC’s website) and at www.nysusbcwba.com (the NYSUSBCWBA website). For 2010-11, the three state associations are offering $27,000 in scholarships. The deadline to apply for any of the 18 available scholarships is Feb. 1, 2011. “The process has been simplified in that applicants only need to fill out the online form, and click the submit button when all questions have been answered properly,” Wilkinson said. “It’s important to know that this is the only application necessary to apply for any of the state association scholarships.” Applicants also are required to download and print two forms – a School Official/Counselor’s Evaluation & Data Sheet and a Youth Official Evaluation Sheet. These two forms, and a letter of recommendation from a teacher, guidance counselor or coach, should be mailed to the address indicated on the forms, Wilkinson said. Further information about the application process or NYS scholarship program can be obtained by contacting Wilkinson at firstname.lastname@example.org or Liz DeHart at email@example.com. The following scholarships will be awarded in 2011:

Idle bowling thoughts. ...A team's lineup positions can be very important. Alltime great Parker Bohn III feels that your leadoff individual should be a deadly spare shooter, one that can mark when it counts most and one that can spark the spirit of a team. The anchor, or final bowler in the lineup, should be your best all-around bowler, but not necessarily the one with the highest average. A top anchor can hit the pocket when the pressure is on, is a good solid spare bowler, but one better known for coming up with that strike or two when needed in a tight game. ...There is no such thing as an easy spare, unless it's the one you don't have to face because you got a strike. ...Did you know that up until 1994, from 1958, pro bowlers had to follow strict limits on the length of hair, pony tails, braids and beards. ...In the more than 50 years that pro bowling has been on TV, the happening causing the most comment was not a big win, not a particular match, not a perfect game, but Mark Roth's first ever TV conversion of the 7-10 split. ...Twenty years ago John Petraglia was asked who he saw as the future stars. His selections were Parker Bohn III, Dave Ozio, Amleto Monacelli, Pete Weber, Brian Voss and Del Ballard. That's what you call a super crystal ball. All became top stars and all but Ballard have been elected to the PBA Hall of Fame, and he should gain that honor in the near future. ...The good old days were when you were pretty sure you could bowl your weight.
...You hear about the 300 games rolled in bowling. But a real rarity in bowling is a 291 game, and the rarest of them all in the upper category is a 292 game. ...Bowling does have some power to make people much more attentive to dates. The same people who make medical and business matter appointments mere days in advance often enter bowling tournaments two years prior to the competition. ...The move to Texas by most integers in bowling will take time, particularly such attractions as the International Bowling Hall of Fame and Museum, but it has to be one of the most forward thinking bowling ideas in the history of the sport. ...The more you study bowling history the more you realize that the negative of bowling has been expanded and repeated much more than the more prevalent positives of the sport---at every level. ...When you discuss smooth bowlers the name of the late Joe Joseph comes to mind most often. For a fairly big man, he moved to the line with all the grace and balance of dancing legend Fred Astaire. One big difference, Joseph carried a heavy bowling ball, not a light hat or cane. ...The head pin of a bowling setup probably has more strange remarks directed to it than any other inanimate object in the world. ...Any league secretary or tournament director will tell you that the people who know all the bowling rules and let you know they do are not nearly as bad as the bowlers who think they know all the rules.

Continued from page 1 Pezzano first became involved with the PBA as a top-flight competitor and charter member; he was the first collegiate bowler in the United States to bowl an 800 series. But his legacy off the lanes far surpassed his credentials as a player as he evolved into the most prolific bowling writer in history. His weekly bowling column has been published in The Record in Hackensack, N.J., every week for more than 50 years. He has written stories for every leading bowling publication in the country. He has written books, worked as a consultant on television, movie and instructional videos, and traveled the country serving as an emcee and guest speaker at hundreds of bowling functions. And to this day, his nationally-syndicated columns appear in bowling publications across America. Pezzano also was heavily involved in PBA business affairs, running the PBA East Region for 20 years. He was secretary of the PBA Hall of Fame for nearly 20 years, and served as the organization’s official historian for longer than that. Pezzano and fellow New Jersey entrepreneur Frank Esposito – who together created the PBA Regional program – were the first Meritorious Service inductees in the inaugural PBA Hall of Fame class in 1975. He was elected to the American Bowling Congress Hall of Fame in 1982, and was recipient of the Bowling Writers Association of America’s Luby Hall of Fame Award in 1974. That’s just a small sampling of the awards he has won. “I don’t think anyone has poured more of his heart and soul into the PBA than Chuck Pezzano has over a span of more than 50 years,” said PBA CEO and Commissioner Fred Schreyer. “Chuck Pezzano deserves to have his name attached to the PBA Press Room not only in recognition of all he has done for the PBA, but as an inspiration for all future bowling journalists.” “Unveiling the press room for the Tournament of Champions honors all of the writers of the past who appreciated the greatness of what I always called the Firestone,” Pezzano said. “(The Tournament of Champions, sponsored by Firestone for 29 years) was far above the other events. From a writer’s viewpoint, it provided everything you needed, and that’s why it has been the best event in history from the start. “I appreciated it because it gave me an opportunity to meet and get to know the greatest players in the country, along with a lot of news media guys who weren’t necessarily assigned to bowling,” Pezzano continued. “The TOC put bowlers on the same plane with other athletes. In the early years, first prize was $25,000 and some of the greatest players in baseball only made $40,000.” The 2011 Tournament of Champions will award a $250,000 top prize as part of a PBA-record $1 million prize fund. “Every writer who covered the Tournament of Champions had to look for something beyond what happened on the lanes. It could be whether or not the old veteran would last until the end, a story about the new kid on the block, the Mike Durbins (the first three-time TOC winner) who were always underrated, or the so-called discovery of a Dick Ritger, who really was one of the greatest bowlers of all time, but never got the credit until people saw him bowl in the Tournament of Champions.” “I would never have thought about an honor like this,” he added, “but it ranks right up there with any honor I’ve ever won.”
