NYS USBC Annual Meeting
Marked by Delegates’ Giving
Kingsley, Iacovelli Retain Director Posts
JUNE 3, 2013 – The generosity of New York’s bowling community was on full display Saturday at the 2nd Annual Meeting of the New York State USBC at The Desmond Hotel & Conference Center in Albany.
More than 160 delegates representing local USBC associations and guests attended the Annual Meeting, which was marked by the re-election of Directors Betty Kingsley of Rochester and Sally Iacovelli of Ithaca. Kingsley received 117 votes and Iacovelli 103 to earn re-election. Bob Kaverman of Jamestown received 59 votes in the three-person race for the two positions.
President Priscilla “Pat” Zonneville of Marion, Sergeant-at-Arms Liz DeHart of Staten Island, and Youth Directors Mike Callan of Rochester and Margaret “Penny” Clinton-Jensen of Staten Island were re-elected by acclimation since they were running unopposed.
Biographical sketches of all those who ran for an officer or director post can be viewed by going to the Officers page.
Delegates and guests, along with local associations and state auxiliary organizations, contributed mightily to the state’s effort to raise funds for Pathway to the Cure and its youth scholarship program -- donating more than $3,000 through various fundraisers. Included in that number were a $670 donation from the Johnstown USBC WBA, $100 from the NYS Bowling Writers and a $413.54 donation from C.C. “the Quarter Lady” Cinelli of Long Island.
Attendees heard reports from NYS USBC committee chairs and from officers of the NYS 500, 600 and 700 Clubs, NYS Bowling Writers and NYS Youth Leaders. Youth Leader members served as the color guard for the meeting.
Robin Marshall, USBC Regional Manager, addressed the delegation at the conclusion of the meeting, fielding questions primarily about the elimination of the Special Achievement Award program at the national level.
It also was announced that the NYS USBC will be endorsing and assisting with the annual NYS BPA Youth Scholarship Tournament, which will change to an all-handicap format next year. This is being done to give NYS USBC youth bowlers the option of bowling in a state handicap tournament, since the Youth Pepsi Championships are now an all-scratch event.
A Memorial Service, officiated by Iacovelli, NYS USBC chaplain, began the day’s activities. Louis Leatso of Troy was the soloist and Liz Taylor of Johnstown was the lay speaker. Roses were placed in vases in memory of those from the bowling community who passed away during the 2012-13 season. Go to the Memorials page for a photo from the ceremony.
On Saturday evening, 92 people attended the NYS USBC Hall of Fame and Awards Dinner. Jodi Musto of Schenectady and Joe Losurdo of Old Hickory, Tenn., formerly of Oswego were inducted for Superior Performance and Anne Strom Baird of Cortland was inducted for Meritorious Service. Ellen Menzie of Bergen, who was unable to attend, was recognized as the Service to Youth Award recipient. For more about the Hall of Fame ceremony, go to the Hall of Fame page.
