Phone Card Charity Exceeds Expectations California Bowling Writers members stepped up to the plate and the Phone Cards for the Troops charity exceeded all expectations pushing the total to $8,100.55. Our goal had been $6,000. More and more people are supporting this effort including those from around the U.S. League collections and 50/50’s plus donations from local associations and the California BVL Fund helped to reach the grand total. Est. 1998 Volume XI, Issue III Our newest board member, Andrea Adamson of Pacifica, worked the leagues at her bowling center plus bus trips to Red Hawk Casino and raised nearly $1,000! On more than one occasion members collecting donations were told that their loved ones had received one of our cards and how great it was because they do not have access to cell phones. Considering the thousands of troops in the war zone, how about running into people who have someone serving in the armed forces that have received our card! Phone Card Donors $8100.55 January 2010 This year we learned that packets could be sent directly to your serviceman/woman. In addition the crew at 29 Palms have been offered special Valentine’s from a card company to enfold our cards. We are excited about the growth of this charity. There will be no doubt that those special people serving in the armed forces are appreciated.

Be a part of promoting bowling through the written word! What could be better than doing a “Profile” on a deserving person or writing something on the Golden Quill topic – “A League Experience.” Look around you. The people and situations are everywhere. The following are some tips to help you write it right! What is the main point of the story? i.e. What is the main message I am trying to convey? What is the story really about? Look for the heat in your subject. Appeal is emotional, not intellectual. Whatever your subject, write about people, physical objects and actions. These are what engage the imagination and the emotions – concentrating on them has the added benefit of adding clarity. Do not lead with biographical material unless it leads directly — and quickly—into the substance of your story. Biographical material isn’t important until later in the story when you give the reader a reason to want to know more about the individual. Don’t linger over nonessential stuff. . .your readers don’t necessarily care about someone until you tell them why it’s important, and nonessential stuff, by definition, isn’t important. Avoid abstractions, generalities, jargon and clichés. Use plain speech and talk like a real person. If a simpler word can be used with no loss of meaning, use it. Same goes for fewer words vs. more. If you can’t say it plainly, that may mean you don’t understand it well enough yet. Opinions are not facts, even your opinions. Opinions make personal journalism lively but be sure to know the difference between opinion and fact. Identify your sources. Regardless of punctuation - ALL CAPS or lots of exclamation marks!!!! – contributes nothing to the discussion. Your audience needs to know where the information comes from. Good journalists have to assume that everyone, even people they like, may be lying. Fact check. Reputable media people use professional fact checkers and mistakes are still made frequently. Try to get the details right. Spell Check then read it again!

But, I am here to report what we’ve been up to the past few months. Our 6th annual Phone Card Drive’s deadline just passed and donations topped $8,000 - our highest amount collected ever. I want to personally thank each and every one of you that jumped on board and generated donations to this very worthy cause. We outdid ourselves. Special thanks to Mary Lynly and Eloise Cottrell for all their efforts running this year’s Drive. It just shows how we can all come together and what it can produce.

Kim Terrell-Kearney, 44, of Grand Prairie, Texas, and Marshall Holman, 55, of Medford, Ore., will be inducted May 12 at the International Bowling Campus in Arlington, Texas. It will be the first outdoor induction ceremony in USBC history and will be preceded the previous night by a special dinner in downtown Fort Worth. The public is invited to both events with free admission to the inductions. Terrell-Kearney owns 10 professional titles, most recently the 2008 U.S. Women's Open. Her major victories came in the 2002 Queens and the 2001 U.S. Open. She has finished in the top 10 of the WIBC/USBC Women's Championships 16 times, nine of them in the 2000s. And she has placed in the top 10 in the Queens nine times. "It's always been dream of mine to be elected to this hall of fame but I wasn't sure if it would be a reality," said Terrell-Kearney, the assistant coach at the new International Training and Research Center. Always colorful Holman won all but one of his 22 Professional Bowlers Association titles between 1975 and 1988. Among his victories were the Firestone Tournament of Champions in 1976 and 1986 and the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America U.S. Open in 1981 and 1985.

But, because of her lifestyle, bowling took a back seat to her busy schedule and twenty years passed before she picked up a bowling ball again. It was then that she found her way to the TRW(NGST)/ SEA Bowling League at Gable House Bowl, Torrance. Over these many years, Sandy bowled tournaments hosted by the WIBC, California State, and the Local Association, cultivating tons of friends. Bowling with her good friend and teammate, Annette Hamilton in the Viking I League at Gable House, has become a way of life and pleasure for Sandy. Annette has only been bowling since 2004 and has come to love the game. Both gals were thrilled when they bowled so well in the 2009 CAUSBC Women’s Championship. Not only did they win the D-Division Doubles Event with 957; Annette shot a 516 Series, to capture the D-Division Singles. Viking-I NG SPSC League at Gable House Bowl in Torrance meets every Wednesday at 6 PM. It was there that Nicole Peterson and Summer Koepp became teammates and good friends. When they were approached by Betty Brooks, the squad leader of teams for the 2009 CAUSBC Women’s Championship Tournament, both gals said “Why Not”! They were placed on the same team for the team event and matched together for the Doubles and Singles Events. They were a match to “be reckoned with” in the E-Division for the 851series they posted captured the First Place for the Doubles Event in that division! The Donkee Tour ladies of Team #11 have been friends for over 30 years. They have competed in the CAUSBC each year, but they just couldn’t “nail down” that First Place spot. This year was different, they really poured it on, posting 1,213 series at Yorba Linda Bowl to capture the First Place in B-Division. But, it wasn’t over. The following day Rose and Lannis continued their quest for glory by posting a 1,244 to win the ADivision Doubles Event. 8/28-30/2009 Senior Tournament Winners Congratulations to: Loretha Knox, 1326, Super Senior Royoko Waltman, 1344, Division A Sandra McGee, 1344, Division B Sandy Costa, 1352, Division C Jennie Nubie, 1337, Division D Check us out online at CalUSBC.com Nicole Peterson, Summer Koepp USBC Dir.

We had no easy or viable solutions and finally went to the board for help. In understanding our dilemma that we can’t get the participants because the prize fund is not there and we can’t payout a nice prize fund because the participants aren’t there, the board decided that they needed to step in and help or else the tournaments will fold and two 40+ historical events will come to an end. After gathering a lot of feedback from both events, the committee came up with multiple scenarios to present to the board for approval. The decision came down to this… keep the historical format the Sandy Cash, same, the Masters will remain with a final field of 64 and prize fund payout USBC Dir. to 64. The Queens format will also Phyl Knoll, remain the same with a finals field of Annette 32 and a prize fund payout to 32. The Hamilton guaranteed payout approved by the state board was $47,000 total – $30,000 to the Masters and $17,000 to the Queens. The committee was extremely confident that in receiving these funds, the bowlers WILL come!
