The Constant Flame - Recalling the life of John Davis By Fred Groh

Republished courtesy of International Bowling Industry magazine (Volume 21, March 2013)

2013IBIJohnDavisTribute_small.jpg We did not know John Davis the way Len Nicholson did, or Chris Chartrand or Pat Ciniello, all three friends and colleagues of Davis's for years who spoke at the memorial service for him in February. It was held at the most appropriate possible place: the Kegel Training Center at Kegel headquarters in Lake Wales, FL. Davis died Jan. 25. "He tried to do something that no one else did," as Nicholson says. "He tried to make the sport as fair as possible."

Don't get too angry on the lanes

MikaelKanoldonYouTube.com.jpg Mikael Kanold is a young talented Swedish bowler, a member of the Swedish youth national team, and not known for becoming angry very often. His compatriot Martin Larsen, World Doubles champion and Jason Belmonte, the High Roller champ from Australia brought this video to our attention. It shows why all bowling center proprietors teach their customers NOT to cross the line between the approach and the lane. Actually it gives the expression 'foul line' a new meaning. Enjoy.
