For those of you who like to practice on tougher conditions, I'd like to announce the beginning of the Earl Anthony's Dublin Bowl Practice Sessions.
The sessions will be conducted on Sunday Evening’s beginning on September 11th from 6:00 P.M. until 8:00 P.M. For a cost of $15, bowlers can practice on a different pattern each week. We'll either use PBA or Kegel Sport or Challenge Patterns. On the Sunday prior to the Gold Pin Tournament, that pattern will be used. The automatic scorers will not be turned on, so bowlers can move from lane to lane.
The sessions are open to youth bowlers as well as adults.

Salvemini Takes Title at
BBA’s 1st Scratch Senior Singles
61 year old Joe Salvemini topped a great field of 48 bowlers and won $700 in the process in BBA’s 1st (of hopefully many) Scratch Senior Singles on August 21st @ Clayton Valley Bowl.
In the final match, Joe needed a 9 count or a strike on the 1st ball of the 10th frame for the win. The situation tightened up a bit when Salvemini came in light and left the 3-9. However, the new operator of the Pro Shop inside AMF Rocklin Bowl was up to the task and easily converted the spare and finished with a 229-221 win.
2nd place & $450 went to Garrie Yacap, who led all qualifiers with a huge 5 game block of 1320, which included a 1st game of 216….so he went 1104 for the final 4 games of qualifying and had a 300 in game 1 of the finals.
With a 226-191 win over Marty Deh in the final game of the finals round, Chuck Tillson remained in 3rd place to earn $320.
Of the 48 bowler field, the majority of it (28) was made of bowlers in the 55 & over age category, while the rest (20) came out of the 45-54 age group.
The oldest player in the event, 71 year old John Dorsett made the finals, qualifying 6th in his division with 1125, eventually finishing in 8th for $130.
The tournament’s other 300 game came from Ron Case in game 3 of qualifying, which was part of a 1258 block, which made him the high qualifier of the “kids” division.
Look for our 2nd BBA Senior Scratch Singles in November or December.
