             DON BLATCHFORD WINS BIG AT WESTMINSTER LANES
             WCST SINGLES.
                                           By Dick Sanders
This past Saturday, the WCST returned to Westminster Lanes in Westminster,
Ca, Our 1st Singles Tournament there since 2001. This was the year, that Jim
Murtishaw bowled his 1st WCST Tournament with us, and won it. This time, Don
Blatchford, won his 17th WCST Title. In the 8 game qualifying, Don rolled a 300
game and 2005 total score, and with the new Round Robin Finals, where the
bowlers earn Bonus Points and they carry over their pins from the qualifying.
Don had a huge lead over 2nd Place Sonny Pollard, by 129 pins, and a 166 pin
lead over 6th Place qualifier Mike Rausch, who after losing his 1st match won his
final 3 matches, and eventually passed Lew Elting, who bowled Don Blatchford
in the position round and lost. The scores very high for the tournament included
many games of over 250, a few 270 plus games, and two 289 games by Sonny
Pollard. In Match Play, 4 of the bowlers won 2 games and lost 2 games, while
the most wins to Mike Rausch with 3 of the 4 matches. WCST Champions, Alvin
Lou and Jim Lesiuk, respectable showing ending up in 4th and 5th.  Top 3:
1st Place: Don Blatchford, $725.00, 2nd Place: Mike Rausch, $600.00, 3rd Place:
Lew Elting, $500.00.  26 bowlers entered, 9 checks paid out, which included
2 places for bowlers ages 70 & Up. They bowled a one game roll-off for the
difference of the 2 places. Jerry Calvin 198 for $225.00 beat, Ed Jamison, 193,
for $205.00.  A total of $$3,545.00 paid out, and for the year, 10 tournaments,
a pay-off of $33,465.00, and over-all for 417 tournaments, a total of $4,077,399,00
paid out.
3 of our past Wcst Champions paid a visit to the tournament. One of the all Time
Great ABC, and PBA Champion, Barry Asher who has 10 PBA Titles, and a Hall
of Famer, he lives in nearby Costa Mesa, and runs one of the most successful
Pro Shops in California, located in Fountain Bowl, in Fountain Valley, and one
of my long time friends of over 60 years.  It was good to see Doug Johnson, who
will turn 90 years old in Ja
nuary 2018, Doug has 15 WCST Titles, and my good
friend, Dave Wilson, who helped me with the scores.
Our thanks to all bowlers who attended, and for WCST Members, Joe McBride,
right before the qualifying had his left knee buckle on him. The Medics were called,
and they came right away, Joe was taken to the Emergency Hospital, and from what
I understand, had surgery performed. We wish him a fast speedy recovery.
The WCST would also like to thank the bowling centers. Mr. Mike Jacoby, the
Proprietor of the lanes now over 40 years, and his very cooperative workers.
This center has been kept very clean, and the scores, excellent, and we will return
again in September of 2018.
