Rogers Scores 300 & 702

Posted

Forty-two year-old Liberty bowler Jason Rogers recently scored his first career 300 game in the Kiamesha Lanes Friday Mixed League.

Jason rolled the 300 on December 11 using a Brunswick Cutting Edge bowling ball on lanes 13-14 while bowling with his team, Return To Sender, and teammates Kathy Weiss, Karla McAdams and Shane Cunningham.

The 300 in the second game of the 702 series also saw single games of 202 and 200.

Jason, bowling for some 24 years, currently maintains a 204 average in the only league he bowls in.

“All the strikes were in the pocket,” Jason noted.

Jason is married with three children and is employed by the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office.

Reaching the Area 700 Scoreboard

Pedro Agapito III not only reached the 700 scoreboard last week but pounded out a nice 822 series off single games of 279, 279 and 264. Kyle Giordino scored a 719 off single games of 236, 289 and 190, Kevin Stackhouse had a hot hand last week scoring two 700 plus series, a 733 off single games of 249, 237, 247 and a 706 off single games of 221, 248 and 237, Dave Graham 213, 213, 277, 703, and a nice 626 series off single games of 235, 193, 198 by Carena Collura.

Also scoring two 700 plus series was Fox Bowling Center owner-manager Bill Gleim with a 715 off single games of 233, 223, 259 and a 716 off single games of 223, 247, and 246. Mitch Persbacker scored a 732 with single games of 248, 258 and 226.

Ed's Outlook

One of the many new additions to the modern bowling world is the introduction by Qubica AMF of their Highway 66 scaled down version of a traditional bowling experience.

Most bowlers know the game of bowling but with the new Highway 66 this is truly a whole new bowling vibe.

The Highway 66 has premium features like HD scoring, video masking, LED capping lights and the new Highway 66 really delivers the ultimate in bowling lane experience.

The short lane conditions takes some time to get use to and the solid hard plastic bowling ball the size of a softball takes a little time to learn the proper delivery and what speed to roll the ball…and yes the speed and ability to curve the ball is almost like the traditional game of bowling.

When we saw this setup the owner of this bowling center noted they have leagues and everything that goes with the game of bowling.

Talked to one bowler at this center and he noted that he also had not bowled for years but was attracted to this ultimate mini bowling experience.

Since the introduction of mini bowling thousands of Highway 66 lanes have been installed.

Highway 66 is infused with Quibaca AMF's rich heritage of traditional bowling experience, and the ultimate expression of their superiority in manufacturing and innovation.

We liked this on-lane experience and feel it is redefining the bowling experience, and the space requirements makes an installation like this available to restaurants, bars, golf course clubhouses and other recreational facilities.

There is an adult basic membership which provides a USBC-certified average so that these bowlers can compete in local, state and national tournaments.

Leagues must be designated as short-season leagues and the USBC will recognize high score achievements.

A high average is a great honor in this style of bowling.

Bowling Tip

By Mike Luongo

Do you find yourself unable to finish your delivery in a strong balanced position?

We offer this week's tip for any bowler who ends up out of balance at the foul line while delivering your bowling ball.

Out of balance may be a result of your follow through.

It is very important that when you follow through on your delivery you do not reach out with your arm but reach up with your follow through.

Bowlers who reach out find that the weight of the ball will pull their upper body forward and may cause them to lose their balance.

If you reach up you stay planted in a strong solid position and are able to deliver your bowling ball with accuracy and leverage.
