OPENING CEREMONIES/FIRST WEEKEND FOR
CUSBC OPEN CHAMPIONSHIPS
May 11, 2010
By: Bette Addington & Mike Hefley
The first weekend of bowlers from all around the state coming to Bakersfield to compete in the 5th annual 2010 CUSBC (Californian United States Bowling Congress) Open Championships took place this past weekend with squads of bowlers at both AMF Southwest Lanes and Regency Bowling Center.
Opening Ceremonies kicked off the event and took place at noon on Saturday, May 8, at AMF Southwest Lanes. On hand were Mayor Harvey Hall along with Don Cohen, Director of the Bakersfield Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. Representing CUSBC was President Al Hoffmann and Association Manager Larry Peppers along with Tournament Director Ferenc Schulz. AMF Southwest Lanes was represented by Manager Darlene Sharp, and Regency was represented by Manager Mike Morris. Representing our GEUSBC (Golden Empire United States Bowling Congress) was President DC Williams. Bakersfield High’s ROTC was the color guard and led the ceremony into the presentation of our National Anthem. Then, bowling participant, Wayne Tanaka, of Ridgecrest, was selected as “Joe Bowler” and threw out the first ball to start the tournament.
This tournament will run for the next nine weekends (skipping Convention weekend Jun.12-13) through July 24-25. Team event is at AMF Southwest Lanes and Doubles & Singles is at Regency Bowling Center. Admission is free for spectators and although entries are closed, local bowlers who are not entered can still sign up at either center to be a sub as subs will be needed throughout the tournament. Squad times at both centers are: Team/AMF Southwest Lanes on Saturdays at 12:30 & 3:45; Sundays at 9 & 12:30. Doubles & Singles/Regency Bowling Center on Saturdays and Sundays at 9:30, 12:30 and 4.
