Houston Bowler Rolls First 900 Series in the Lone Star State

But, it was an unexpected guest appearance at the center Monday that yielded a record-setting performance for the 24-year-old right-hander, who became the 29th bowler to roll three consecutive 300 games for a 900 series in United States Bowling Congress-certified competition.

NYS USBC Annual Meeting
Mark Scuderi, Dan Solimine
to Join Board of Directors

JUNE 5, 2016 – Delegates at the 5th Annual Meeting of the New York State USBC approved four pieces of legislation Saturday (June 4), including a key measure that increased term limits for Directors and Officers.

Action by the 133 voting delegates at the gathering at The Radisson Albany set the stage for a six-person ballot for three Adult Director positions – and resulted in the election of incumbent Corinthia Ward (New York City USBC) and newcomers Mark Scuderi (Rochester USBC BA), photo top right, and Dan Solimine (Westchester County USBC), photo bottom right, to the board.

Please go to the Youth page for a photo of the NYS Youth Leaders' flag presentation.

Ward received 87 votes, Scuderi 81 and Solmine 70 to outpoll Lauren Sutton (Tonawandas USBC), Michelle Duchowny (Troy USBC Youth) and Jonathan Burke (Mid-Hudson USBC), who garnered 54, 52 and 38 votes, respectively. Sutton was a slated candidate while Duchowny and Burke ran from the floor.

Incumbent Youth Directors Thomas Solimine Sr. (Westchester County USBC), Dan's father, and A.S. "Doc" Doctorow (Long Island USBC) ran again for the two open seats and were elected by voice vote.

Vice President Liz DeHart (Staten Island USBC) ran unopposed and also was elected by voice vote.

All new terms commence on August 1.

Ward and Solimine Sr. were able to run for election this year from the floor due to the delegates' unanimous approval of legislation forwarded by the NYS USBC Board of Directors to immediately extend term limits of Directors (Amendment No. 3) and Officers (Amendment No. 4) from a maximum of three two-year terms to a maximum of four two-year terms. Otherwise, both longtime NYS bowling board members would have "termed out."

NYS USBC board members proposed the legislation in an effort to sustain a continuous membership on the board, in light of a lack of candidates in recent years.

Delegates also approved two other amendments to the bylaws:

-- Amendment No. 1 which gives local associations more time to submit their lists of delegates to the NYS USBC office – moving the deadline from Dec. 1 to Jan. 15;

-- Amendment No. 2 which will require those wishing to run for a position on the board from the floor to submit their resumes to the Nominating Committee at least two weeks prior to the Annual Meeting. Previously, those potential candidates had until 24 hours before the Annual Meeting to submit their qualifications.

USBC President Frank Wilkinson of Staten Island addressed the delegates, reminding them to be proud of bowling -- the largest participation sport -- and to support the national governing body's efforts to keep up with the changes in society.

"We're challenged every day to operate our business in different ways," he said. "We strive to be smarter and more efficient, focusing on core competencies such as technology, youth development, championship tournaments, membership value and marketing."

NYS USBC President Roger Buckman thanked the delegates, the Board of Directors and Association Manager Mike Pettinella for their efforts, and encouraged everyone to recruit new bowlers to lift the NYS USBC from its position as the second-largest merged association in the nation to the largest.
