CAN BOWLING STAND UP TO OTHER SPORTS?
(Presented at the GHUSBCA Fall Membership Meeting by Donna Hall, President)
As a member of GHUSBC you share something in
common with over 12,000 people in the city of Houston. In
fact, you share something in common with over two million
people who belong to USBC. Years ago, that number would
have been quite a bit larger, but that is a whole other story
for another day! During the 1970’s bowling was in its heyday, membership was at its peak and bowling centers were
full with double shifts. Fast forward 40 years, over 70 million people bowled at least once in the past year which
makes bowling still the sport with the largest participation in
the world.
Yes, bowling is a sport! We know, but it is up to us
to get those other millions of people to recognize it for the
sport it is today. When you think of sports, excluding bowling of course, what is the first one that comes to mind?
Well it is football season, so let’s talk a little football. It can be compared to bowling and no one would dare
question whether or not it was a sport especially here in
Texas. Texans love their football teams! Football is played
as a team; the players wear jerseys with their name on it just
as bowlers are members of a team. Some bowlers still wear
shirts with their names on it, but our youth bowlers and
many of the pros wear jerseys. Both sports have a team captain and require special equipment and special shoes. Football has a line of scrimmage, while bowling has its own special line, the foul line. A bowling ball is out of play when it
is in the gutter, but in football, it is out of bounds when the
players do not keep it between the lines. There are 1696
players during the season in the NFL, but we bowlers have
them outnumbered. Yea! Bowling wins! Score: Bowling
1; Football Zero!
At the end of the regular baseball season, they play
the World Series. Bowling has its own World Series which
will be held in Las Vegas, October 24-November 6. Who is
the favorite? I don’t know but I am betting on Kelly Kulick.
She has had one fantastic year in bowling. Baseball has
other similarities to bowling besides the World Series. It
requires special equipment and special shoes, too. In baseball, the ball goes into play at home plate and if it hits outside the foul pole it is out of play. The playing field is
unique because of its shape and some ball parks have been
known to host bowling events, too. Think October, 2004 –
Miller Park – Danny Wiseman wins the USBC Masters
Tournament at a baseball stadium. There are 750 MLB
players. Score a strike for bowlers! Score: Bowling 2;
Baseball Zip!
Another sport that compares to bowling is soccer.
It too is a team sport that requires special clothing and
shoes as well as its own unique playing field. A soccer ball
is similar in size to a bowling ball, both have an average
circumference of nearly 27 inches. It is the weight that
makes them so different! Soccer balls weigh ounces, while
bowling balls are measured by the pound. Soccer players
kick the ball and hope it rolls, but bowlers live to see that
ball roll and smash those pins! There are 416 MLS players.
Score another strike for bowling! Bowling 3; Soccer None!
Basketball is another sport that comes to mind with
a lot of similarities to bowling. It is a team sport consisting
of five members per team with a captain. They use subs
regularly and they wear special clothing as well as shoes
which have a special surface, too. The competition is held
on hardwood or a synthetic floor and they throw the ball
around trying to score. Most bowling centers have synthetic lanes but you can still find some hardwood ones
around town. After a break in the summer, the basketball
season starts in October and ends in April with each team
playing 82 games. Most bowlers take off for the summer
and start back in September. The average league bowler
rolls 96 games. A basketball is slightly bigger around than
a bowling ball and may vary slightly in weight too.
I
guess it is true what they say that size does not matter.
There are 532 NBA players. Bowlers just keep rolling the
ball looking for that perfect score! Which brings us to our
final score: Bowlers win four!
One more thing…hot off the press! The PBA
adopted a rule to use instant replay in nationally televised
competition. How can that be you ask? It is rarely needed
in competition but issues with fouls and pinfall have created some disputes over the years. There is a foul line
judge that carefully monitors pinfall, but there have been
situations which occurred making an accurate ruling difficult without closer review. It should be noted that instant
replay was used in PBA events previously. In 1999, Parker
Bohn was bowling Pete Weber in Austin and it appeared
Parker fouled on a spare attempt. During a commercial
break, it was reviewed and determined Parker Bohn did
indeed foul which negated the spare. However, he did go
on to win the title, 225-211. The following week PBA
players voted against any future use of instant replay.
NOW, WHO SAYS BOWLING IS NOT A SPORT?

ASSOCIATION MANAGERS ADDRESS
(Delivered by Cheryl Polak at the GHUSBCA Fall Membership Meeting)
Good afternoon everyone. I would like to thank everyone for taking
time out of your busy schedules to attend your Fall Membership
Meeting. One year ago I stood in front of you and reported that for
the first time since the 2006 season our membership had declined
by 1,239 members. We know that this was due mostly to the closing of several centers in Houston that resulted in the loss of 72 lane
beds. Unfortunately, I must report once again we had a decline for
the 2009-2010 season. Our membership stands at 12,894 members;
12,150 adults and 744 youth. But it was a decrease of only 237
members, a 1.8 percent decline. USBC President Darlene Baker
and Executive Director, Stu Upson has asked the local associations
to focus on increasing memberships and I believe we can. Our association is committed to this. Several members of the association
board had the opportunity to talk to leagues at the beginning of this
season who were considering not to certify because of the USBC
award program last year. The leagues allowed our association representatives the time to explain the many benefits of joining USBC
beginning with league bonding. bowling in a USBC certified center,
using approved equipment, supporting scholarships for our youth, a
member’s reward program, and yes, the one thing that is unique to
our sport, an award program. After presenting the benefits of certification every league voted to certify again. Headquarters heard the
bowlers across the country and this will be the last year for the
magnets and next year there will be a new award program introduced from the national level. But please we must remember that
our membership dollars are not only about awards, but many other
services that insures the integrity of our sport such as standardized
rules and the means to enforce them.
The 2011 Texas State USBC Senior Queens Classic and Senior
Masters Tournaments will be held in Houston at AMF Alpha
Lanes January 29th and 30th. The Bluebonnet Queens and Masters Tournaments are being held at the same center February 26th
and 27th. Please spread the word to your fellow bowlers and support your state tournaments. If you have not already done so, pick
up an entry before you leave today. Derrick Mitchell and
Gretchen Harmon will receive an entry into one of these tournaments as our City Champs.
One thing Greater Houston USBC has is exceptional bowlers. For
the 2009-10 Season Greater Houston has not one, but two teams
that are being honored on the national level for posting the highest
score in the nation in their categories. We congratulate the Rocket
Strikers who’s series placed them first in the 4-player, under 8
years team series category. Team members, Michael Sartor,
Daniel Salinas, Christian Sanders, and Joshua Del Angel, bowled
series of 237, 232, 161 and 279 on January 9th this year.
On February 22nd S.I.D.K. series placed first in the 3-Men, 2Women team series category by bowling series of 718 by Kristy
Krol, Sarah Wharton rolled 696, followed by Robert Eason with a
782, Chris Bennett posted a 729 and anchor, Jeff Clark bowled
764. Congratulations to our National Award Receipts and yes,
you make us “Houston Proud”.
The association has introduced a new local award program this
season and we are very excited about it. In talking with some of
you, you seem to be excited about it. Starting with an award for
75 pins over average in a single game which is awarded a writing
pen. We have re-introduced awards for the 7-10 Split, Big 4 Split,
All Spare Game, Triplicate and Dutch 200. The awards are all
wooden bowling pins denoting the bowlers accomplishment. The
last award that we are introducing is the one I am most excited
about; we are presenting the last place team in each league certified this season with the Last Place Champs! award. We are hoping this help to encourage our new and seasoned bowlers alike
who end up in last place to keep bowling and to let them know
they are appreciated.
The Men’s Invitational Championship Tournament was held at Palace Lanes. Derrick Mitchell is our Men’s City Champion with a
pin fall of 2,155 in All-Events. The Women’s Championship Tournament was conducted at Emerald Bowl and City Champion
Gretchen Harmon shot a scratch score of 2,181 in All Events.
These winners were recognized at our Annual Membership Meeting
and received their awards at our Champions Luncheon in April.
The Open Championship Tournament was held at Del Mar Lanes
and once again the optional virtual doubles were extremely popular.
We congratulate the Open winners, who will be recognized later in
the meeting. All of our city tournaments saw an increase in teams
again this year and of course we want this trend to continue.
We are extremely fortunate to have an outstanding staff at the
bowling office to care for your needs; Penny Shannon is my assisThe Board of Directors will be introducing some new ideas this tant and handles the memberships and leagues; Georgette
coming tournament year in the hopes of increasing participation as McNally is our awards coordinator, who filled over 13,000 awards
well as promoting our local tournaments. We will be alerting the last season, and Sandy Little, who fills the job as our Youth

tournament. Another is presenting the tournament champions with the Board of Directors, thank you for the job each of you do for
jackets rather than plaques. The tournament committee will be our bowlers!
working to develop an award to present to the highest three game
series and highest game bowled during each city tournament. Entry I believe the biggest challenge any local, state or national organiforms for the 2011 Women’s Championship being held at AMF zation has is in the area of communication. Technology has

The national organization is making
great strides in communicating with
local and state organizations. This last
year they introduced Regional Managers. The Regional Manager over the
Houston area is Jim Zeberhazy. We
have monthly conference calls with
him and we’re joined by other state
and local managers from different
parts of the country. This gives us a
platform to share ideas and voice concerns with headquarters. USBC, in
Arlington, is forming task forces that
include employees of bowling headquarters, proprietors, board members
and association managers, from the
local and state level. I have had the
privilege to participate on two different national task forces. I believe this
is a step in the right direction to bridge
the gap between the National and Local level, bringing a new trust between
the organizations.
To quote a friend of mine, “Friendship
is one of the best parts of bowling”!

NATIONAL Wii COMPETITION
The article below was printed in the Houston Chronicle September 22, 2010.
They’re organized and competitive with scores regularly in the 200s. Donning Tshirts proclaiming “Happy Rollers” the Wii bowling team at Parkway Place senior-living
community is off and rolling in the National Senior League Fall 2010 Wii Bowling Competition, which began Aug. 16. Competition will culminate in a national championship on October 27.
“This is the first time Parkway Place will participate in the national tournament, although we’ve had an active Wii bowling group for two years,” said Rhonda Duncan, director
of Life Enrichment at Parkway Place. “When we first learned about the opportunity, the
players were very excited.”
The tournament was established by the National Senior League, a national Wii competition dedicated to residents of senior-living communities. The national web-based league
lets participants compete virtually, without leaving their communities.
Ten weeks of regular season play lead up to the national championship with teams
competing weekly against each team in their conference. Scores are turned in weekly. Top
teams from each of the eight conferences advance to “Open Bowl” playoffs, followed by a
championship web-cast production.
“Our players will be competing against teams from Georgia, Arizona, Pennsylvania,
Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana and Idaho”, Duncan said, “They are especially enjoying this
tournament though Wii sport games are extremely popular year round”.
Parkway Place is sponsored by Buckner Retirement Services and offers independent
and assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing.

BVL—Bowlers to Veterans Link
It's not what. . . it's who. . . Bowlers throughout America have collected funds and given their time for
the nation's wounded and disabled veterans for more than 66 years. Indeed, the Bowlers to Veterans
Link (BVL) plays a vital role in the VA Medical Center community, comprised of 173 Department of
Veteran's Affairs Medical Centers and 206 Vets Centers, as well as State Veterans Homes throughout
the country.
The BVL, founded as the Bowlers Victory Legion, was formed on September 26, 1942 in the midst of
World War II when the men and women bowlers of America sought to make life more bearable for the
service personnel overseas. These bowlers promised “We will not forget about the sacrifices made by
America’s service men and women.”
BVL's first campaign during WWII raised money to purchase medical evacuation planes to ferry the wounded
home from the battle fields of Europe.
BVL supported the dependents of those killed during Operation Desert Storm with academic scholarships for
college.
BVL has shipped more than 550 portable carpet bowling lane kits to active duty troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and
a host of other locales including to the USS Enterprise and USS Ronald Reagan.
BVL local volunteers not only raise money for America's veterans but also spend countless hours volunteering
their time at veterans' facilities - organizing games and events, reading, coordinating bowling programs and
much more.
In the month of December GHUSBC Volunteers assemble gift packages for the veterans hospitalized in Houston at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center. Each year we spend time with each patient in our assigned
unit, hopefully bringing a little holiday cheer to them all.
BVL sponsors the tours of the entertainment troupe "Re-Creation‚" which performs at VA Hospitals and State Veterans Homes around the country. Thursday, October 28, 2010 “Re-Creation” entertained at the hospital in Houston to
the delight of the many patients that were able to attend. GHUSBCA provides
hospitality for the members of the troupe when they are in our fair city.
Since Veteran’s Day is this month, GHUSBC will be collecting for the BVL
during leagues the week of November 11. Please be as generous as you have in
the past for this worthwhile charity. Donations collected will be sent to the VA
Hospital right here at home.

SENIOR GAMES—TEXAS STYLE
The Texas State Senior Games were held in Houston
October 17 - 31 at various venues around the
city. Bowling is just one of the many activities included in this statewide event.
Other activities include archery, badminton, basketball, cycling,
golf, horseshoes, racquetball, shuffleboard, swimming, table tennis, tennis, track & field events, triathlon, volleyball, billiards, dominoes & 42, fencing,
pickle ball, Scrabble, soccer, softball & football
throw, Texas Hold 'em and washers. First, second
and third place medals were awarded to participants
in each event. These events are qualifiers for the
National Senior Games Association Event to be held
in Houston in 2011. Each medalist earned the right
to compete in the National Senior Games next year.
100 Years Old and Still Bowling
Harry Pepper just turned 100 years old in October and
he’s still an active bowler. He has been bowling since
1939. He bowls at Palace Lanes in the Friday Senior
League. His scores the week at his birthday were 168,
155, and 105 for a 428 series. Pepper doesn’t use a 16pound ball anymore; like a lot of bowlers he has
dropped the weight to 12-pounds. He says the “pins
still go down if you hit ’em right”. He bowled in the
Texas State Senior Games last week in the bowling
category..
He recently purchased a 2011 luxury automobile and the salesman tried to sell him an extended warranty which would keep him from paying for repairs
until 2023. Harry decided to save his money and declined the extended warranty.
Do you know these gold medal winners in the doubles competition? Be the first to correctly identify
both bowlers by calling 713-874-1277. Reward not
open to GHUSBCA Board Members or personal
friends of the two bowlers.
Harry lives with his girl-friend who is quite a
bit younger than he; she’s only 85. They have no
plans to marry as he feels he is a little old for that.
He was a three-pack a day smoker, but gave
that up 60 years ago. He gets up in the morning pain
free and eats whatever he wants to. He still has an
occasional Crown and Coke, then admitted it was
more than just occasional.
Greater Houston USBC provides a newsletter which is printed at least twice each year. It is our goal to provide you with more upto-date information about the Houston bowling community monthly rather than twice a year. In order to do this, we are asking that
you help us by e-mailing noteworthy accomplishments at your bowling center. This can include unusual spare pick-ups, such as the
l-7-10, the 5-7-10, 7-8-9, etc. Things such as a triplicate 112 when the bowler’s average is 112, human interest stories, jokes, bowling cartoons, or anything you feel is worth mentioning. We won’t promise we will print everything you send but if we feel it is of
interest to our readers and with space in mind, we will make every attempt to print it. You may email this information to [email protected]
