Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, Mika Koivuniemi Win World Bowling Tour Titles
By Bill Vint - PBA LAS VEGAS – Mika Koivuniemi reinforced his position as an international bowling star, defeating Sean Rash of Montgomery, Ill., 237-224, to win the inaugural GEICO World Bowling Tour Finals title at South Point Casino and Hotel. American women’s star Carolyn Dorin-Ballard of Keller, Texas,(formally of New Jersey) won the WBT women’s title, 207162, over Sweden’s Sandra Andersson. Koivuniemi, a native of Finland who now resides in Hartland, Mich., completed a 10-month international quest to win the World Tenpin Bowling A s s o c i a t i o n ’s inaugural WBT title, presented by the Professional B o w l e r s Association, by reeling off a string of six strikes to erase Rash’s early 11pin lead and taking advantage of Rash's missed 10 PBA Photo Carolyn Dorin-Ballard pin in the ninth frame. Both finals, conducted as part of the third annual PBA World Series of Bowling, aired on ESPN. Koivuniemi, a 44-year-old two-time PBA Player of the Year, has won titles in 15 different countries during his career and easily won the WBT qualifying points title over Rash. World Bowling Tour points were awarded in eight tournaments held in Finland, the United States, France, Kuwait, Thailand, Korea and Australia. “It has been a good year for me,” Koivuniemi, the reigning PBA Player of the Year, said. “I really feel like I bowled well and I deserved to win. It all started in Helsinki last January when I won the Brunswick Ballmaster Open. I’ve been battling for 10 months to get here, and it came full circle back in Las Vegas.” The opening men’s match between Rash and Australian two-handed player Jason Belmonte had been highly anticipated after the two rivals had exchanged heated words during a summer GEICO PBA Team Shootout confrontation when Rash accused Belmonte of deliberately making distracting noises with his plastic water bottle. Their rivalry had intensified during WBT meetings since the June episode. But in their first televised showdown since that episode, Rash took advantage of a pair of open frames by Belmonte for a 214-204 victory. Belmonte had a chance to win, but needing two strikes in the 10th frame, he left a solid 10 pin on his first try. “Belmo and I are fierce competitors. We don’t think we can lose at any time when we’re on the lanes,” Rash said of the rivalry. “I hope the fans enjoyed the match. Jason threw a great shot in the 10th frame, but he left a ringing 10 pin which was good for me, bad for him. “That bottlegate thing happened months ago. People need to move on," Rash continued. "Things happen. Jason and I are going to bowl against each other for many years to come. But when I’m on the lanes, no one is my friend. The only PBA Photo people cheering Mika Koivuniemi for me are my wife and my parents and Team Brunswick, and that’s all that matters to me.” In the women’s finals, Dorin-Ballard, a PBA Women's Series champion and 20-time Professional Women's Bowling Association titlist, cruised to a 207-162 victory over Andersson after the 20-yearold Swedish player missed single-pin spares in her first two frames and failed to strike until the seventh frame. Andersson advanced to the title match by defeating her Swedish national teammate, Nina Flack, 190-160, in the opening match after Flack started her game with back-to-back splits. Koivuniemi and Dorin-Ballard each won $10,000. Rash and Andersson won $6,000 as runners-up, and Belmonte and Flack earned $4,000 each. The WTBA has announced the World Bowling Tour will return in 2012 with an expanded 14-event schedule.

It should come as no surprise that museums and Halls of Fame are having a difficult time, maintaining and upgrading exhibits and displays and just meeting operating costs. There are more than 3,000 nationwide, ranging from little more than a room or two to castle like mansions, combinations of buildings, permanent and complicated connections to the main subject with enough related materials to keep going for decade upon decade of astute maneuvering of history in storage. History is great, but you can't eat it, and priorities are usually to the preservation of religious and other deep felt feelings to do all possible to cure or at least alleviate the ills and damage of medical mysteries. And with all the ups and downs, too many downs lately, of an economy akin to a bouncing ball going wild, there are few black or white answers to so many gray questions. Over the years bowling, meaning bowlers, organizations of every description, manufacturers, sponsors and the media have been great when it has come time to honor persons with their own little piece of forever with a special bit of notice in a bowling hall or museum. No effort should be shunted aside when it comes to keep bowling's shrine not only surviving---but thriving. Thousands of people have given their time and treasure over a half century to keep the history of the sport a proud and ever growing message that bowling is truly a people1 s sport. There are varying thoughts about how things can be done, about exhibit priorities and every other major or minor in thinking. If there aren’t enough opinions in the thinking then enough thinking isn't taking place.
My two pets about the Hall is that we have yet to find a way to display the beautiful painted portraits of women elected and the bronze bust plaques of the men. I have seen life size figures hanging from the ceiling or a wall or adorning panels at airports or telephone poles or imbedded in walls, ceilings, floors or whatever genius minds can create. There must be a way to show them. It may surprise many but the most feedback I ever received about the Hall was an exhibit that simply showed unique bowling shirts hanging with their fantastic colors and themes brightening up any era. Those shirts reminded many visitors of the days when almost every bowling team wore shirts and to young visitors who have gone through days of almost no shirts. Bowling has more than enough material to keep displays fresh and open for the day when more funds and more space will allow completely new subjects and new approaches to be used. Some of bowling's great minds have been involved with various aspects of our Hall and Museum in Texas. You can help by cooperating with Hall activities. And if you can't donate a room or a building, just give a buck every now and then.

Jaylin Floyd Earns Stan Niemiec Youth Travelers Honors
By Vince Albrecht Oakland, NJ 12-04-11 – There was a string of “600”s rolled by the Stan Niemiec Youth Traveling League keglers, but only Bowler of the Week Jaylin Floyd came away with three deuces in totaling 653, the afternoon’s best threesome. Yet, despite his 214-214-225 effort, Jaylin’s Fair Lawn quartet could only muster two points against a red-hot Holiday squad, capturing the finale by a scant fourteen pins. Pulling together after being soundly crushed the first two games, Fair Lawn received strong closing games from their 12-year-olds’ Stephen Plaszky 180 and Madison Perry 175. For Madison, it was her high game this season and the third straight week she has closed with a well above average score, having tallied 151 and 167 previously. As for Holiday, they increased their leagueleading margin to four points with stellar outings from Ramapo seniors’ Kevin Macchia and Mike Carr with 222-628 and 213-617 respectively. Indian Hills’ senior Emily Ostapczuk bounced back from a sub-par earlier match to add an impressive 210-581 while Dillon Cilento chipped in with a 514 set. In other encounters, Karl Katterman scored 203-551, 11-year-old Adam Gelvan 198 and 12-year-old Rose Feiwel with a repeat performance of three solid over average games as Boonton won two nail-biters from Bowler City II. The latter took the finale and wood point as Eric Grunfeld caught fire with 191, Nick Reyes 180 and Kyle Schellberg 174. The high score on the pair went to BC II’s 14year-old James Kane with a scorching 226. Although Montvale had excellent production from Northern Highlands’ senior Billy Olszewski 232-639, Tappan Zee freshman Matt Hauser 232-607 and Pearl River soph Katie Didonato 195-542, they dropped four of seven points to Bowler City IV whose entire squad rolled over average. Kendra Chaiken had 153, Mariah McKelvey 145, 9-year-old Mia Aish 137 and Louis Ferrante 133 for the winners. A talented Bowler City I foursome had the afternoon’s high scratch series of 2348 in securing five of seven points from Bowler City III. Leading the victors was John Draney 237-634 with ample support from Rob Gilbert, Jr 216-592, Eric Grabusnik 202-567 and Ryan Perez 201-555. BC III won game two behind Patrick Sucero 160, Nick Ferrante 149, Olivia Wank 143 and Tiffany Sucero 137.
