BOWLING: Roberts wins monthly seniors tourney


RICHMOND — Summer Cash Money

The high games this week were 227 by Vince Townsend and 224 by J. J. Reisig.

Reisig (555) and Townsend (553) also bowled the high series scores.

Tuesday No-tap Doubles

Nine pins down with the first ball in a frame counts as a strike in no-tap leagues.

Gary Cromer and Bill Bowles each bowled a no-tap 300 game this week. It was the third no-tap 300 game of the summer for Cromer and the second one for Bowles.

The high series for the night were rolled by Bowles (779), John Hickam (774) and Carl Daniels (742).

The highest men’s games after the two “perfect” games were bowled by Hickam (298), Lynn Estes (286), Gary Holtzclaw (266), Daniels (265), Ron Roberts (253) and substitute Neil Haggard (263).

Narita Rose led the league’s ladies with a 264 game and 608 series. Wanda Sampson bowled the second-best women’s game (228) and Sue Hegelmeyer rolled the second-highest women’s series (590).

A 600 series was also bowled by Estes (677), Roberts (674), Todd Young (672), Holtzclaw (647), Bobby Abrams (639), Donnie Barger (629) and sub Haggard (653).

This league will finish the season on Tuesday with four teams in position to win the league championship.

Hammer Time (Todd Young and Gary Cromer) leads with 44 wins, while Low Rollers (Kymmi and Bill Bowles) and MM & RR (Mary Mink and Ron Roberts) have 42 wins each — just ahead of It Doesn’t Matter (Narita Rose and John Hickam) which has 41 wins.

Jamboree report

The 49th annual Kentucky State Bowling Association Jamboree was held at Rainbow Lanes in Leitchfield on July 13- 14. The Jamboree is a business meeting during which KSBA committees propose legislation to be considered at the annual meeting and make plans for the state tournament in November. This year’s annual meeting and state tournament will be held in Owensboro.

George Lambert, Midwest Regional Manager for the United States Bowling Congress, made a presentation covering several programs and policies of the USBC.

Lambert was a member of a national championship bowling team at Wichita State, and he worked for a while as a “nanny” for the children of professional bowlers Chris and Lynda Barnes.

The change in the USBC’s policies regarding awards for high scores was of most interest to those attending the meeting.

Starting with the 2013-14 season, the USBC will provide awards only for a 300 game, an 800 series and 11 strikes in a row.

The awards for a 200 game, 250 game, 600 series, 700 series, league championship, most improved bowler, etc. which had been provided by the USBC, will now be the responsibility of the local associations.

Each local association must now determine what accomplishments merit awards and the nature of those awards. Several of those present expressed concern about the cost to the local associations.

The date for the Senior Men’s (open) State Tournament was changed to Sept. 28 and 29 at the Galaxy Center. This tourney was previously scheduled for Oct. 5 and 6, but the change was made to avoid conflict with the Senior Women’s State Tournament which was also scheduled for that weekend at Galaxy.

Dennis Timberlake, from Louisville, has agreed to accept the position of Association Manager for the KSBA replacing Corky Steinmetz, from Owenboro, who is retiring after holding the position for 41 years.
