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.

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!

This year we learned that packets could be sent
directly to your serviceman/woman. In addition

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.

This column is part of the California Bowling Writer’s efforts
to help our members be good
writers. 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!

President’s Follow Through
Happy New Year! It is hard to believe we have survived a decade in the new millennium
and California Bowling Writers is over a decade old. We’ve come a long way, baby.
Bowling has been through some interesting changes over the decade as well. Whether or
not we are better off with these changes still remains to be seen and that could be a whole
newsletter in itself. 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. CBW Director Andrea
Adamson is recognized for her creative efforts in getting donations rolling in.
I want to remind all of you that our annual writing contest
applications are almost due. The topic for the Golden Quill
is “A Special League Experience”. The article should be
published between October 1, 2009 and April 1, 2010. The
Profile Award should be published between February 16,
2009 and April 1, 2010. If you haven’t published your article yet, there is still time. I’m happy to report that through
1st VP Joan Romeo‘s efforts, Bowler’s Journal will sponsor

San Francisco Native Kim
Terrell-Kearney Elected
to USBC Hall of Fame
A pair of two-time U.S. Open champions, one
from the 1980s, the other from the 2000s,
have been elected to the United States Bowling Congress Hall of Fame in a worldwide
ballot of the Superior Performance category.
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.

California USBC GUARANTEES $47,000 in Prize
Money for the 2010 State Queens & Masters Events
By Phyl Knoll
Sandy began her bowling career in 1964 when she was 19 years old.
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.

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
