FIVE ELECTED TO USBC HALL OF FAME
ARLINGTON, Texas - The United States Bowling Congress Hall of Fame Committee has elected five new members to the USBC Hall of Fame - two in Outstanding USBC Performance, two in Meritorious Service and one Pioneer. Wheelchair bowler Al Uttecht of Anaheim, Calif., was elected in the Pioneer category, multiple-time USBC Open Championships winners Lennie Boresch Jr. of Kenosha, Wis., and Gary Daroszewski of Franklin, Wis., were selected in the Outstanding USBC Performance category and Joan Feinblum of Santa Rosa, Calif., and the late Kerm Helmer of Utica, N.Y., were honored for Meritorious Service. The induction ceremony will take place April 26 at the USBC Convention in Arlington and will include those elected from the national Superior Performance ballots. On the men's ballot are Tom Baker, 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. The women's ballot has one name - Dede Davidson, Buellton, Calif. Uttecht, the first person chosen in the Pioneer category since 2008, blazed a trail for wheelchair bowlers everywhere and is regarded as the most accomplished such bowler in the sport's history. He was confined to a wheelchair after sustaining injuries in Vietnam in 1970 and began bowling later that same year. He has won the American Wheelchair Bowling Association Tournament of Champions 13 times, is a 12-time AWBA National Scratch champion and a seven-time AWBA National All-Events champion. "I am totally blown away at this honor, and I have no words to describe how I feel," said Uttecht, who was 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 a wheelchair." A three-time winner at the USBC Open Championships - all of which came with fellow electee Daroszewski - Boresch also has won dozens of local and state titles in Wisconsin. He won the 2000 Team All-Events title and the Team and Team All-Events titles in 2009 at the Open Championships. "I'm very honored, but it took me by surprise a little bit," said Boresch, who currently ranks fifth on the lifetime average list at the Open Championships with 215.43. "I thought I might have a chance to get into the Hall of Fame one day, but you never think it will happen. It's quite an honor, especially with my teammate Gary going in as well." In addition to the three Open Championships titles with Boresch, Daroszewski also won Open titles three other times. He won the 1982 Team All-Events, 1983 Team All-Events and 1989 Regular Doubles with Gus Yannaras. He is a member of the Wisconsin Bowling 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 into the Hall of Fame, so this is an unbelievably, outstanding thing to have happen to me," said Daroszewski, who has bowled in the Open Championships with Boresch since 1992. "It's really overwhelming. It hasn't kicked in yet how big an accomplishment this is." Feinblum has devoted nearly five decades of service to bowling at the national, state and local levels, including four years of work on the committees and task forces that helped develop USBC. She also served on the Women's International Bowling Congress Board of Directors for more than a decade and most recently served as the chairperson of the USBC Nominating Committee and the USBC Hall of Fame Committee. "I was shocked, and I thought maybe I was dreaming because I had just gotten out of bed when I got the phone call with the news I had been selected," said Feinblum, who was recently featured in a segment on The Learning Channel focusing on how her bowling family helped her in her battle with breast cancer. "I just feel very humbled because having been on the USBC Hall of Fame Committee, I know how difficult it is to make it because of all the worthy candidates." A physical education teacher for more than 35 years, Helmer dedicated his life to the growth and development of youth and collegiate bowling until his passing in 2002. He initiated the men's and women's bowling programs at Erie Community College in Buffalo, N.Y., and led the Kats to 16 National Junior College Athletic Association men's titles and 21 women's titles. His men's and women's teams each claimed a pair of national titles as well. Helmer was active in the bowling industry, serving on the Board of Directors for the American Bowling Congress and the Young American Bowling Alliance. He served as YABA President from 1999-2001.

J o a n Ta y l o r ’ s Te n P i n R a p . . . .
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.morriscountywba.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfiles/scholarship_application.pdf), and Charles A. Edwards (http://www.mcbanjbowling.com/applications/ScholApplic.pdf) scholarships. Additionally, there are many national scholarships available from the PBA (the Billy Welu), the USBC (Chuck Hall and Alberta Crowe Stars of Tomorrow), and BWAA (Chuck Pezzano). A simple Google search will give you all the information, forms, and past winners. Why bring up scholarships now? Because many deadlines for all applications start in February, and applications need recommendations from teachers or guidance counselors, and often have essay requirements. Montville High School wants a bowling program. For the life of me I never understood why some schools didn’t support youth bowling. Their games wouldn’t get rained out. The “little guy” could make the team along with the “big guy.” The camaraderie is unparalleled compared with other sports. People often ask me about colleges with bowling programs. In addition to the mega-bowling powerhouse, Wichita State, there are so many other schools with strong bowling curricula such as New Jersey’s own Fairleigh Dickinson, The College of New Jersey, New Jersey City, NJ Institute ot Technology, Stevens Institute, Monmouth, and William Paterson. Look up their contact people and scholarships at www.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 that have sanctioned youth leagues will be hosting Adult/Youth Qualifiers. All sanctioned youth bowlers may get the information from their league coaches. The winners of the in-house qualifiers will be eligible to bowl in the Morris County USBC YA 42nd Annual Adult/Youth Roll-off that will be held at Boonton Lanes on Sunday February 5, 2012 (yes-Super Bowl Sunday) with a snow date of February 12, 2012. If you need any further information, please call Elaine Wilson at the Association Office at 973-267-4279.

Why do people bowl? Some people bowl because it is their way to make a living. Some people bowl to be with their friends, mates or family. Some people bowl to get away from their friends, mates or family. Some people bowl because they like being frustrated, bitter and unhappy and bowling gives them a little of each. Some people bowl because they like being satisfied and happy, and Bowling gives them a little of that. Some people bowl just because they were asked to bowl. Some people bowl because it is an inexpensive form of entertainment. Some people bowl because they like to throw things. Some people bowl because they were lousy at every other sport and figure bowling is an easy game. Some people bowl because they were good in other sports and figure when they can’t cut it in football or baseball or other sports bowling can still keep them competitive. Some old people bowl to stay young. Some young people bowl to learn how to mature. Some people bowl because they like to talk. Some people bowl because they like to listen. Some people bowl so they can have something to brag or complain about. Some people bowl because they have some excuses left over from other life encounters they lost. Some people bowl because they found a bowling ball or pair of shoes in the attic or cellar.
Some people bowl because it gives them license to go out, have a drink, wear outlandish clothes, and yell a lot. Some people bowl for exercise. Some people bowl to get away from the cares of work or home, and then end up caring more about home and work because of the new cares bowling brings. Some people bowl to make out. Some people bowl because they saw a pro on TV and figure they can do better. Some little people bowl because their mothers and fathers make them bowl. Some people bowl because for a tiny sum they can use million dollar equipment. Some people bowl to lose their inhibitions and some people bowl to put themselves on exhibition. Some people bowl because they like to laugh and cry in no special order. Some people bowl because bowling centers can be a home away from home. Some people bowl because they want to win a trophy of some sort, and almost every bowler can win a trophy at one time or another. Some people bowl to lose weight. Some people bowl to throw their weight around. Some people bowl because it’s one of the only things they can do. Some people bowl because it’s the only thing they want to do. But all people bowl because they enjoy it, gain something from it in some normal or peculiar way, and because bowling is truly the people’s pastime.

Monmouth County New Jersey Bowlers Support Veterans
Edison, NJ – As part of a nationwide grant program, Veterans Day was a little bit brighter at the Veterans Home at Menlo Park, where a check was accepted in the amount of $2,535.00 from the local members of the Bowlers to Veterans Link (BVL). Part of donations to the national BVL also support the group “Re-Creation” which is a song and dance group and was there performing on the same day. The Monmouth County USBC Bowlers collect donations at all their sponsored tournaments by asking each bowler to contribute only $1.00. “Our bowlers have been very generous in supporting our efforts to aid the veterans,” said Bob Hodges, President. The veterans were also given a banner with over one hundred signatures from the bowlers of Monmouth County who participated in the fund-raiser. BVL is a national charity, which raises almost a million dollars annually to fund recreation and therapeutic programs and services for America’s veterans. Founded in 1942, the BVL is operated and supported by league bowlers throughout the United States. The grant will be used to purchase much needed supplies and equipment for the facility. Currently, the center serves Central Jersey area veterans who will benefit from and enjoy the new equipment and programs. Joseph Brandspiegel, CEO of the Menlo Park Veterans Home, was thrilled to receive such a generous donation, and invited the bowlers group to come back more often. The Bowlers of America, through the BVL, recognize the tremendous sacrifice that our military veterans have made for our country. Our bowlers are committed to improving the life for veterans. This gift to the Menlo Park facility is just part of our on-going effort to boost the spirits of our veterans, and show them we care. In addition to the donations to the VA Hospitals, BVL dollars support veterans in the State Veterans Homes and at Vet Centers around the country.

USBC ANNOUNCES 2010-11 HIGH AVERAGE AND SERIES WINNERS
By Matt Cannizzaro - USBC
ARLINGTON, Texas - Team USA member Liz Johnson enjoyed a successful year on the international stage, and she was able to stay sharp by competing in a United States Bowling Congress Sport Bowling league. The 37-year-old right-hander, who earlier this year helped Team USA to its first team gold medal at the World Tenpin Bowling Association World Women's Championships since 1987, captured the women's 2010-11 USBC Sport Bowling National High Average Award. She averaged 210 for 48 games in the Beverly Sport League at Beverly Lanes in Arlington Heights, Ill. John Donahue of Shawnee Mission, Kan., topped the Adult Male division with a 230 average for 72 games in the PBA Experience league at Ward Parkway Lanes, while Kyle Sherman of O'Fallon, Mo., and Denver's Emily Eckhoff led all youth Sport bowlers with 205 and 196, respectively. "It feels really good to have the top average in the country and receive this honor," said Johnson, a seven-time member of Team USA, who posted a USBC women's record 244.4 average in a standard league during the 2004-05 season. "The bowling center is pretty tough overall, and there are a lot of great bowlers in the area who also bowl in the league. It definitely helped keep me sharp for all of the tournaments I bowl in, and I'm very proud of this accomplishment." After finishing second at the 2011 USBC Team USA Trials, Johnson went on to claim two gold medals (team and doubles) at the World Women's Championships in Hong Kong and also won singles and doubles at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. Donahue, 52, started bowling Sport leagues in 2007 with his focus on preparing for top senior events. "I needed to do preparation work to bowl senior tourna-
ments like PBA and SASBA by the time I turned 50," Donahue said. "I determined that bowling in PBA Experience leagues was a good way to sharpen my skills. Bowling in PBA Experience leagues also has helped me play lanes better with both Sport and non-Sport lane conditions."
Eckhoff and Sherman, both 17, said they decided to challenge themselves on Sport conditions so they could be prepared for top competition. "For the love and dedication I have for this sport, I am greatly honored to have earned this award," said Eckhoff, who started bowling in Sport leagues in
2006. "Being able to accomplish an achievement that rarely comes along means a lot to me." Sherman was 13 when he bowled in his first Sport league. He made headlines in the summer of 2010 when he won the JBC Gateway Scholarship Tournament by rolling games of 300, 259, 300 and 289 in match
play. "I wanted to improve my game, and I knew I had to challenge myself on Sport shots in order to compete with the top competition," Sherman said. "I feel so honored to have achieved this award, and I realize that practice and hard work pay off."

Team USA Adds 10 to 2012 Roster Trials Champions to Compete in World Cup
Lucas Wiseman - USBC ARLINGTON, Texas - In two major announcements, the United States Bowling Congress has selected 10 athletes to join Team USA in 2012, while the winners of the USBC Team USA Trials will earn automatic spots to compete in the QubicaAMF World Cup. Five men and five women have been selected to Team USA members for 2012. The remainder of the roster will be determined at the Team USA Trials in Las Vegas from Jan. 2-6. Patrick Allen, Chris Barnes, Tommy Jones, Bill O'Neill and Sean Rash were selected to join the men's team by the National Selection Committee, while Liz Johnson, Kelly Kulick, Stefanie Nation, Shannon O'Keefe and Shannon Pluhowsky were chosen for the women's team. "These decisions are never easy to make because we have such a talented pool of players to choose from," said Team USA head coach Rod Ross, who chairs the selection committee. "Representing the United States as a member of Team USA is the highest honor an athlete in our country can have, and all of these players are worthy of their selection." To be considered at this stage for selection to 2012 Team USA, men were required to be exempt players on the PBA Tour, while the women must have been former Professional Women's Bowling Association/Ladies Professional Bowlers Tour members. Players who were on Team USA at least once since 2001 also were eligible for consideration. An additional five men and five women will join Team USA 2012 at the Team USA Trials, which will be held at Texas Station in Las Vegas. The winners of that event will represent the United States at the prestigious QubicaAMF World Cup in 2012. "Earning a spot on Team USA is a significant reason in itself to compete in the Team USA Trials, but we wanted to sweeten the victory for our winners," USBC Managing Director of National Governing Body Neil Stremmel said. "The World Cup has a tremendous amount of tradition and is one of our most anticipated events each year." The top three men and top three women finishers at the Team USA Trials will earn automatic spots on Team USA, while the National Selection Committee will pick two additional men and two additional women from the field to join the team. Team USA will represent the United States in international competition in 2012, including the Pan American Bowling Confederation Championships, World Singles Championships and the Lee Evans Tournament of the Americas.
