COLUMBIA, MO November 3, 2012—At our regular fall meeting, the Missouri State USBC Board of Directors had the honor of voting on new inductees into the Missouri State USBC Hall of Fame. For the year 2013, a total of seven new members will enter the Hall at our annual State Showcase. They'll be inducted on Saturday, June 1, at the Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage Beach, MO.
The ability to add worthy members to our Hall of Fame is an important and enjoyable task. This year we were presented with one of the best groups of applications we've ever had, and the decision we had to make was a tough one. There are a lot of bowlers in our state that merit this honor, and we encourage the submission of applications similar to this year in the future.
In the Superior Performance—Male Category, we'll be adding PBA and USBC Hall of Famer Pete Weber from St. Ann, St. Louis USBC Hall of Famer Gus Marsala from St. Charles, and 2-Time PBA Senior Tour Titleist Matt Buxton from Holts Summit. The Superior Performance—Female division welcomes Greater KCMO USBC Hall of Famer Joann Stover from Lee's Summit, and the co-host of 590 KFNS Keggler's Korner, Alena Mathews from Ballwin. Finally, in the Meritorious Service Category, longtime MSUSBC Pepsi Youth Tournament Director Joyce Wolf from Sedalia, and the current Secretary/Treasurer of the Missouri State 600 Club Dorothy Renner from St. Louis will join the ranks. It will truly be an evening of honors on that Saturday in June.
