Kegler's Korner: Among the best Wabash bowlers, ‘C’ leveler has high game

The 16th Terre Haute Bowling Center Men’s Shootout brought out many of the best bowlers in the Wabash Valley once again on Nov. 18-19, but a “C” level bowler tossed the high game in the event.

Danny Travelstead, who entered with a “lowly” 207 average, fired a 299 game to lead all bowlers in the high-scoring two-day tournament.

But in the 16-team event, the four-man team of Guy Johnson, Tom Barr, Joe Jeffries and Scott Buchanan outdueled Marc Pruett, Steve Lang, Rick Rogers and Gary Hiddle 8,814-8,723. The winning team split $1,700.

Rounding out the top five teams were Matt Wilkins, Tom Rottmann, Clint Woods, Gary Busiere (8,654); Jeff Alford, Jay Scamihorn, Mike Gambill, Scott Johansen (8,603); and Jerry Lee “Paco” Hoopingarner, Jeff Acord, Travelstead, Edward Gowgiel (8,563).

The teams were randomly formed by splitting the bowlers into four groups (A, B, C, D) based on average.

While Travelstead had the high game at 299, Hiddle — a “D” bowler — was next at 290, then came “A”-level bowlers Chris Drake and David Elder with 289s. Close behind at 279 included Dave Paulin, Todd Hart, Harold Costello, Jeffries, Gambill, Pruett and Hiddle.

Paulin had high average for the 10 games at 235.1, followed by Drake (234.7), Pruett (233.7), Bryan Barton (231.0) and Wilkins (230.3).

Sponsors for this year’s tournament were First Financial Bank ($500), Pepsi ($500) and Victory Lane Mortgage ($240), while Affordable Awards donated the trophies.


--New Year’s Day Sweeper — If you missed this event, another big payout can be earned in the 1st New Year’s Day Sweeper at the Bowling Center. This tournament will be on, you guessed it, Jan. 1 at 4 p.m.

This is a scratch tournament, with men and women bowlers shooting six games across 12 lanes. The top five bowlers will move into a stepladder finals to determine the champion.

No book average is needed to bowl and the winner will take home $500 (guaranteed). Entries must be in by midnight on Dec. 30.
