Kegler's Korner: Bowlers bring in 2007 with tournaments

TERRE HAUTE — In past years, bowling was probably not on high on the list of activities for typical New Year’s Eve revelers. But that trend changed this year — to be exact, last year (Dec. 31) and this year (Jan. 1).

More than 50 bowlers entered the New Year’s Eve no-tap doubles tournament at Vigo Bowl. Then on New Year’s Day, nearly 60 bowlers — some coming from as far away as Evansville and Fort Wayne — competed in the initial New Year’s Day Sweeper at the Terre Haute Bowling Center.

That’s not to say these bowlers didn’t celebrate the arrival of the new year. It might be a coincidence, but I did notice from the listings of these tournament’s results that there were no bowlers competing in both of these tournaments.

Being that as it may, on to the scoreboard.

At Vigo Bowl, the doubles duo of Rufus Pace Jr.-George Garcia edged the talented duo of Bill Chance Jr.-Brian Carapezza 1,595-1,582.

Rounding out the top seven (all cashed) were Sarah Lenges-Zach Long (1,539), Ryan Hayes-Chuck Fields (1,484), Rufus Pace Sr.-Tim Brickey (1,478), Toby Fields-Stephen Fields (1,475) and Harold Travioli-Megan Carty (1,454).

Meanwhile at the Bowling Center, Scott Johnson slipped past veteran bowler Jay Scamihorn 1,475-1,466 to claim the $500 first prize in their scratch sweeper. Johnson averaged 246.8 in his six games, including lines of 279, 257, 203, 266, 215 and 255.

Rounding out the top 10 — the top 21 cashed — were Danny Travelstead (1,465), Brian Taylor (1,429), John McWilliams (1,409), Ryan Nichols (1,395), Scott Hill (1,391), J.C. Dressler (1,377), Roy Kneeves (1,371) and Todd Hart (1,370).

The rest of the top 21 included Dave Paulin, Bryan Barton, Richard Rich, Chris Drake, Harold Costello, Jeff Acord, Tom Brown, Guy Johnson, Mike Fisher Sr. and Charles Kane.

High games in this event included Scamihorn (299), Nichols (290), Travelstead (289, 278), Joe Jefferies (289), Scott Johnson and Hart (279).

The next big event for local bowling’s version of “holiday revelers” is the Imperial Lanes Super Bowl Tournament on Feb. 4.
