California State Queens & Masters Events
Come to an End

 

December 14, 2010 at 9:38am

Everyone has witnessed the decline of bowling nationwide, with every association, league and tournament being affected, some more than others. California USBC Association events have been a victim to this decline in all of the events we host. The events hit the hardest were the singles scratch events; the Queens, Masters and Youth State Scratch. Because these events are targeted to higher average bowlers, we are already limiting the potential entrants.

The Masters event began in 1961 and the Queens event started in 1966. In September 2009, in a last ditch effort to keep the events alive, the California USBC Association (CUSBC) board voted to back the two events and guarantee funds totaling $47,000 ($30,000 for the Masters and $17,000 for the Queens). The turnout was still not acceptable, with a variety of reasons given for not attending (economy, family and work obligations, etc.).

It was great to see many past Masters and Queens Bowlers attend, who have not attended in recent years. They provided some great input into the format and had some great ideas, but unfortunately, it’s just not enough.

The CUSBC cannot financially back these two events as we just did and the events currently are not self sufficient enough to stand on their own. The current participation field does not offer enough of a prize fund for many to be interested. The Board decided to put these two events on hold for now – with high hopes to bring them back very soon.

“And the Beat Goes On”… We are going to start a new scratch event, open to men, women and youth, called the "California Scratch Classic” in an effort to interest all of the available high average bowlers in one tournament. The tournament will offer local qualifying on one weekend, two locations – north and south – and the finals will be held the following weekend, in the central part of the state. We will roll this new tournament out next fall, September 10-11, 2011 for Qualifying and September 17-18, 2011 for the Finals. You will have four opportunities to qualify in six game blocks and we are hoping to have enough participation to award $40,000 in prize money to all 48 places that qualify to the finals. We will have more information on this event in January, please check with online for additional information.

We want to thank all of the bowlers that participated in the Queens and Masters events over the years, we are extremely hopeful that the events can come back.


Laurie Soto Wins the Last California State Queens Event in 2010

 

We know at least one person that doesn’t want the California State Queens event to fold! Laurie Soto earned her fourth California State Queen’s title at Tyme to Bowl Lanes in Oroville held August 14-15, 2010. We had 14 bowlers that qualified from the Women’s Championships held at Nu Generation Lanes in Yuba Sutter seeded into the finals along with Andrea Snyder our 2009 past champion. That left 17 open spots available for the taking in the Last Chance qualifier. In the Last Chance squad, Paige Woodard from Stockton was the high qualifier shooting 191-220-238-214-204-210 = 1277. $170 bonus awards went to Paige and to Sarina Leitz from Redding for the squad’s high game of 269. The finals started at 1pm after the Last Chance squad and we plowed through 7 rounds of double elimination best 2 of 3 matches that day. On Sunday, after round 11, Leanne Hulsenberg triumphantly came through the contender’s bracket to meet Laurie in the Championship match. Laurie remained untouchable and defeated Leanne earning her 4th title and a nice check for $1,625 plus an entry into the 2011 USBC National Queens event. From the Finals, $170 bonus awards went to Roxanna Horton for both the highest 2 game series (489) and high game (255).

Laurie would like to thank Proprietor, Larry Campbell and the entire staff at Tyme to Bowl Lanes for their hospitality and for hosting the 2010 California Queens tournament. A special thank you to CUSBC and Gold Country Casino for sponsoring the event. Laurie would also like to thank Ed White at Tyme to Bowl Pro Shop for catering to all of the lady bowlers this past weekend and to Steve Hamaguchi of Kearney Mesa Pro Shop in San Diego for laying out her new Ebonite Curve ball. The CUSBC would like to thank Ron Rogers Photography for taking the finals pictures (www.ronrogersphotography.net).
