2019 NYS Queens
Champion to Receive Paid Entry
to USBC Queens in Wichita, Kan.

SEPT. 14, 2018 – The New York State USBC is sweetening the pot for the 2019 NYS Queens Championship.

For the first time, the champion of the Open Division will receive a paid entry to the 2019 USBC Queens and $150 in expense money to go along with the first-place check.

The 2019 USBC Queens is set for May 15-21 in Wichita, Kansas.

Furthermore, a separate prize fund is being established as an incentive to attract more bowlers 50 and over.

Bowlers wishing to enter the "50-and-Over Bonus" can do so by paying an additional $10 on top of the $90 entry fee. One in eight bowlers will cash with winners determined by their five-game qualifying round scores, all grouped into one division.

"We're acting upon suggestions from our Queens bowlers and are excited about these added incentives," said NYS USBC President Roger Buckman. "The Queens is one of our tournament crown jewels and we're doing everything we can to ensure its success."

The tournament is scheduled for April 13, 2019, at Saratoga Strike Zone in Saratoga Springs.

Qualifying squads are at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. with match play semifinals and stepladder finals in two scratch divisions – Open and Classified (194-and-Under).

CLICK HERE for an entry form.

The NYS USBC tournament committee also has extended the deadline to enter the tournament to April 4 – just nine days before the event. Those forced to withdraw from the tournament may do so by April 4 to receive an entry refund, or may obtain a substitute.

The field is limited to 130 bowlers – a maximum of 65 per squad using 13 pairs. Qualifying round times will be awarded on a first-paid, first-served basis.

Around NYS - August 2018

Rome NY USBC to Service Utica Association Bowlers

The Rome NY USBC association's decision to service the bowlers of the former Utica Central NY USBC and Utica USBC WBA has been approved by the United States Bowling Congress office in Arlington, Texas.

USBC officials said they consider the former Utica bowling centers (AMF Pin-O-Rama Lanes and Yorkville Lanes) as part of the Rome jurisdiction at this time but, for 2019-20 and beyond, proprietors of those two centers could request to move to another association in Central New York.

With this development, the bowling centers now covered by the Rome NY USBC are in the geographic area of Utica, Rome, Barnevald, Camden and all areas in between, according to Howard York, Rome association manager.

Merle Foster is president of the Rome association, which also services bowlers in the former Rome youth association.

The USBC is in the process of determining the outcome of a dispute that prevented the merger/dissolution of the Utica associations, including the transfer of funds and other assets.

NYS USBC Hall of Fame Inducts
Cornicelli, Ward, Demperio, Waite

JUNE 4, 2018 – Induction into the New York State USBC Hall of Fame is the icing on the cake, said 95-year-old Frank Cornicelli of Schenectady as he along with three others – Corinthia Ward of the Bronx, David Demperio of Syracuse and Helen Waite of Glens Falls – were enshrined during ceremonies on Saturday night.

One hundred sixty-five people attended the Hall of Fame and Awards Dinner at The Desmond Hotel & Conference Center in Albany.

Cornicelli and Ward were inducted into the Meritorious Service category while Demperio and Waite were honored for Superior Performance.

NYS USBC "service awards" were given to Nelson Chase of Hudson Falls, Service to Youth; and Doug Bohannon of South Glens Falls, Proprietor/Manager Recognition.

"I thought my induction into the Schenectady Hall of Fame was something, but being put into the state Hall of Fame tops everything," Cornicelli said as he concluded his acceptance speech in front of 50 family members and friends – including PBA stars Parker Bohn III and Doug Kent, whose appearances were surprises to Frank.

In photo at right, Kent, Bohn and PBA Regional standout Ray Edwards with Frank Cornicelli.

Cornicelli, in his role as coordinator for the Schenectady Hall of Fame dinners, regularly was able to get professional bowlers to speak at the events, and has become friends with many PBA members.

A NYS director for 20 years and two-time past president of the Schenectady BA, Cornicelli made his mark as the association's sole lane inspector, beginning in 1983. He often would have to go to several centers in one evening to check the lanes following an honor score.

Later on, he chaired the association's certification crew, continuing those duties – including lying down in the pit to take lane measurements -- until he was 89!

"He thanked his wife, Eunice, for letting him contribute to the sport he loves, calling her "the Hall of Famer in my house."

Ward made it a point to thank her children – who were at the dinner along with her grandchildren – for encouraging her to serve the New York City, Triboro Youth and New York State associations in various capacities over the past 35 years.

"No matter what I got involved in, they were always supporting me," she said. "My goal was that I wanted to see people be happy (about bowling) and find a way to make things better."

Demperio, a frequent top finisher in NYS championship tournaments (including a 2011 NYS Open Senior Doubles title) and Syracuse USBC BA Hall of Famer, kept his speech short, but did share how he got started 52 years ago as a "Bantam" bowler in Camillus.

"I remember telling my dad that I joined the Bantam league and the cost was 90 cents a week," he said. "He said, 'How are you going to pay for that?' So, I delivered penny savers – 212 of them for $2.12 per week. My mom gave me a buck and put the rest in the bank."

Demperio's regional tournament titles include the Syracuse Herald Masters in 1988 and 1989, the Van Wie Doubles in 1989, the Lilac City Team event and Bud Light Shootout. In 1987-88, he captured the Syracuse BA tournament All-Events title.

"Grateful and honored" were the feelings shared by Waite, who has numerous NYS tournament victories to her credit, including four Team titles (2011, 2014, 2015, 2016), a Singles title (2010), two Doubles titles (2008, 2010) and two All-Events titles (2009, 2010).

A Glens Falls WBA Hall of Famer and Empire State Games medalist, she thanked John and Sean Bickford of Broadway Lanes, NYS Hall of Famer Sheila Allen, "who said I would be here someday," and all those who helped her achieve success in the sport.

Chase, coordinator of the Youth Pepsi Championships for the NYS USBC since 2004, credited Tom Solimine Sr. of White Plains, the longtime NYS youth bowling director, for mentoring him and "running a great ship."

"This should be called the Tom Solimine Service to Youth Award, don't you think?" he said as he accepted his plaque.

The Youth Pepsi tournament – a scratch event -- has flourished under Chase's guidance as he has capable handled responsibilities at the local, regional and state finals levels.

Proprietor of Kingpin's Alley Family Fun Center since 2013, Bohannon said the recognition is a "team award."

"Our team -- circle of friends and family – are what make this possible," he said.

Bohannon has made it a priority to enhance the bowling experience through promotions, tournaments and fundraisers for many local charities, and through special events and coaching clinics for youth bowlers.

Moro, Fawcett Elected
to State Board of Directors

CLICK HERE for Annual Meeting program book.

JUNE 4, 2018 – Jan Moro of Syracuse and Stephen Fawcett of Schenectady are the newest members of the New York State USBC Board of Directors as a result of voting Saturday at the state association's 7th Annual Meeting at The Desmond Hotel & Conference Center in Albany.

Moro, photo at right, president of the newly-merged Central NY USBC (a merger of the Syracuse local associations), and Fawcett, photo at left, a NYS USBC regional (youth) tournament manager, were unanimously elected to the board by a voice vote of delegates along with incumbents Mark Scuderi of Rochester and Dan Solimine of New Rochelle.

Delegates (118 attended the meeting) also unanimously voted to return Liz DeHart of Staten Island to her role as the board's vice president.

Moro replaces Corinthia Ward of the Bronx and Fawcett replaces Tom Solimine Sr. of White Plains on the board as Ward and Solimine completed their terms of service.

Delegates also agreed to rescind a slate of amendments previously proposed by the NYS USBC Board of Directors that dealt with reducing the size of the board from 15 (including officers) to 13.

The board reconsidered the amendments in light of the number of committees needed to efficiently complete the organization's tasks and in anticipation of receiving applications from those wishing to serve on the board.

A proposed amendment to exempt the two directors representing the NYS Bowling Proprietors of America from term limits was passed, however. Currently, the NYS BPA directors are Rick O'Neil of Owego and Kathy Leitgeb of Albany.

Other highlights of the meeting:

-- USBC President Frank Wilkinson of Staten Island spoke about the Aug. 1 deadline for local associations to be merged, bowling ball technology study, national championship tournaments, renovations to the National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nev., and offering online tournament registration to state associations.

"It hasn't been an easy process, but it is something we should be proud of," said Wilkinson, concerning local association mergers. "We're excited to reach our first convention under the new merged umbrella."

He said that a new rule that prohibits weight holes in bowling balls is a "step in the right direction" and he encouraged bowlers to go to bowl.com to familiarize themselves with the pending regulations.

Wilkinson, whose term expires at the end of the July, said the USBC is eager to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Women's Championships next year in Wichita and said this year's Open Championships in Syracuse have been successful.

"Our events are growing again," he said. "The changes we have made are intended to get as many people to bowl as possible."

-- The NYS USBC recognized director Betty Kingsley of Rochester as the winner of the national Helen Baker Award for outstanding association service. Kingsley served on the former Women's International Bowling Congress  board of directors, was the former president of the Rochester USBC WBA and has been a NYS USBC director for several years.

-- The NYS USBC and Long Island USBC paid tribute to the late A.S. "Doc" Doctorow during the Memorial Service and in the Annual Meeting program book (see the About Us page of this website). Doctorow was well-known throughout the state for his service to youth bowling. He passed away on March 23, 2018. A special event in his honor is scheduled for 11 a.m. June 30 at East Islip Lanes, East Islip, NY (631-581-6200).

See photo on Memorials page.

-- NYS USBC President Roger Buckman, Association Manager Mike Pettinella and nine committee chairs gave reports on their activities for 2017-18, a bowling season that saw increased state association donations to charitable causes and an uptick in the amount of academic and youth tournament scholarships awarded.

-- Delegates participating in various fundraisers on Saturday around $2,000 for the NYS USBC Pathways to the Cure efforts. Additional contributors to the cause were the Johnstown USBC WBA, NYS Bowling Writers and NYS Women's 700 Club, Claudia (CC) Cinelli, known as the Quarters Lady, donated to the Youth Team Tournament scholarship fund. Since 2001, CC has donated $8,067 to the scholarship funds.
