Transcript September 3,1982 /.Montrose voice 17 Galleon One Rolls to Top Spot for Summer Mondays By Billie Duncan "Everybody wanted me to mother them all the way to stardom. And I did," said Rich Corder the day after the Galleon One bowling team won the roll offs to clinch the first place in the MSA Monday Night Bowling League's summer season. The people mothered to stardom were Rich Ryan, Mike Rush, Bobby Hopkins and Randy Templet. This was their first time to bowl as a team. At the end of the season, they were not even in first place in their division. Happy Trails was the first place team and Galleon One was second. That did not deter them. But they felt that their toughest round in the roll offs was when they faced the Happy Trails team. "Once we beat them," said Corder, "We knew we would win." "Rich was the one who suggested we start a team," said Hopkins, who had not bowled in a league for five years. Hopkins. Corder and Rich Ryan are all tennis players also. The difference between the two sports said Hopkins is that "tennis is a much more strenuous sport." But playing tennis aided his bowling because "it helps to be in shape." Bobby Hopkins is definitely in shape. Besides the fact that the team is in good shape, Hopkins cited a more important reason that they won the roll offs. "We had five guys who liked being together. Who liked bowling together. It takes a team effort." He also said, "It takes a lot of confidence." That motion was seconded in example by Mike Rush who not only was sure that they would win the summer league roll offs, but is hoping that they win the Texas Roll Off Tournament (TROT) this weekend. "I think we're going to win on Saturday." When asked how long he had been bowling, Rush replied, "I think the question is how long I've been trying to bowl." At age 16, "I picked up a ball when I was with the Job Corps." He refused to say how many years ago it has been since he was 16. Randy Templet has been bowling for 22 weeks. "H'b the first time I've had a ball in my hand," said Templet. His average "was 112, but it jumped to 120." Templet loves to bowl, but there are things about playing in the league for which he does not care. "The thing I hate the worst about it is the hours. I get up at 5:00 a.m., then I bowl to 12 (midnight) on Mondays." "We've also bowled on Sundays all season long." The practice really helped them to improve their games and go on to win first place. But Templet said, "I wasn't trying to win, I was trying to keep up." About TROT, he stated, "I'm ready for it. Galleon One bowling team It won't last long enough, I'm sure." Then he added with a smile, "If wedon't win, we'll give 'em a damn good game." Rich Corder put it a bit more simply. "We're gonna win." Corder is the captain ofthe team and the spark plug. He demands concentration and dedication from the other members, but he does not lose sight of the fact that the reason they got together to bowl was to have fun. Another thing that he insists upon is honest and fair play. He has no time for people who manuever their play in order to get better handicaps. "I hear about bowling guys who bowl poorly at first, so they can win later." "We don't do that. When we bowl, we try to get every pin." Corder gave an example of how dedicated the team was. "Rich Ryan one night had no shoes to fit him—there were no rental shoes to fit him, so he went and paid $35 for a pair of shoes so he could bowl." This was just before the roll offs. Rich Ryan is dedicated in just about everything he does. He holds a doctorate in music (he is a pianist) and he is the top ranked player in MSA Tennis. He has been bowling for 12 years and has a 172 average (two pins below Corder's 174). "Rich (Corder) just asked me one day if I wanted to bowl," said Ryan. "I had no thoughts of winning." Corder chimed in, "The only reason he got in it was for the glory." Ryan just laughed. As far as the TROT, Ryan said, "I do well under pressure. If it comes down to that, I can hold my end up." TROT aside, the whole team is looking forward to playing in the winter league. Rich Corder showing off his bowling style on the pool table Racquetball Assured Acceptance Into MSA The racquetball league that is now being formed has applied to the Montrose Sports Association for acceptance as an affiliated sub-group, according to Jim Reagan, MSA president. Said Reagan, "There won't be a problem with that at all. In the meantime, they have elected an interim president and secretary. Ray Hubbard was chosen as president and Don Rodriquez as secretary. Reagan said that about 25 people showed up at the Barn last Tuesday (August 31) for an organizational meeting. "So, it's got a nice start to it." Reagan asked that anyone interested in the new league please call 432-7851 in the eveningB. The next meeting will be Tuesday, September 7 at 9:00 pm at the Barn, 710 Pacific. Another View of the Rodeo Bruce Woolley of Travel Tech contacted the VOICE because of an article in last week's issue about the Nation Reno Gay Rodeo. The article stated that several people who attended the Rodeo feltthatit was not well organized. "I thought it was down coverage," said Woolley. About Phil Ragsdale's organizing ofthe Rodeo, Wooley said, "He's done a wonderful job for what he's got to work with." Woolley added, "I don't think anybody had a lousy, rotten time."
