Starting this thread way early because the thought has crossed my mind to make the trip to Las Vegas for it (in the second half of next August at the Sunset Station). I'm hoping there's someone on the forums also with interest in making the trip, as 1) I'd probably want someone to share expenses with; 2) I don't have my driver's license, and sharing a rental car would be cheaper for me than cab fare. I'm hearing about $100/wk packages at the hotels on the Strip; if true, a full two week stay to see everything might be possible, otherwise, I'd have to see when they plan to run the two team events.

I'm certainly not going to have an opportunity to see the best national teams (particularly Team USA) in person often, so I'd like to do this. laugh

The Team USA roster is now set, as follows:

Men: John Szczerbinski, Marshall Kent, John Janawicz, Chris Barnes, Bill O'Neill, Tommy Jones, Mike Fagan, Steve Smith, Eddie VanDaniker, Kyle King

Women: Danielle McEwan, Diandra Asbaty, Josie Earnest, Liz Johnson, Kelly Kulick, Shannon O'Keefe, Stefanie Nation, Shannon Pluhowsky, Brittni Hamilton, Missy Parkin

For both the men and women, the top 3 in the Team USA Trials (the first names given) automatically earned spots on the roster, while the rest were chosen by the National Selection Committee, 5 based on their resumes and 2 based on their Trials performance. Of course, 6 men and 6 women will be chosen from this roster to compete in August at the World Championships.

Hope Danielle McEwan does well, she won teen masters a couple years ago and I think her college team won the NCAA championships last year.

B-Hammer, Danielle McEwan bowls for Fairleigh Dickinson, which was not in the ITC title match. The ITC women's final match last year was Midland v. Webber International, won by Webber International.

I'd be pulling for Shannon O'Keefe. I know two members of her Cambridge Credit team for the Open Championships. It shows in the standings as Cambridge 1, but I know for a fact that the sponsor is Cambridge Credit Counseling, a New England company that also sponsors a NEBA event during the year. The two members of the team I know are Bill Webb and Chris Viale.

The USBC has set up the official website of the 2013 World Championships at http://www.bowl.com/world2013

Interesting to note from the schedule is that the team events will take place over three days, with both the men's and women's medal rounds on the same day (Aug. 29). The first round of both the men's and women's Masters are also later that same day.

Also, the USBC Queens will be held immediately following the World Championships at the same bowling center.

The USBC has announced the Team USA squads for both the men and women, as follows:

Men: Chris Barnes, Mike Fagan, John Janawicz, Tommy Jones, Bill O'Neill, John Szczerbinski

Women: Liz Johnson, Kelly Kulick, Stefanie Nation, Shannon O'Keefe, Missy Parkin, Shannon Pluhowsky

The US is only sending four "pro" men, but Janawicz and Szczerbinski are also both veterans of international competition. The women are all returning from the 2011 World Women's Championships except for Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, whose spot has been filled by Missy Parkin.

Is there anywhere that we can find out what the other countries rosters are, or even what other countries will be participating?

svengali, http://www.sportsground.co.nz/Article.asp?SiteID=15173&ArticleID=3628 at least answers part of your question. The USA automatically qualified in both divisions as the host country. The three "zones", Asian, American, and European, had qualifying last year, and I'll list the countries that qualified in each division in each zone below:

Asian (12 spots)

Men: Australia, Bahrain, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Macau, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, United Arab Emirates

Women: Australia, China, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore

Pan American (8 spots)

Both divisions: Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Venezuela

European (15 spots)

Men: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland

Women: Catalonia, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Ukraine

I've also seen the latest WTBA newsletter to member federations, and Marios Nicolaides of Cyprus, representing the European zone, is the technical delegate for the tournament and has decided that the short and medium categories of patterns will be used for the World Championships. Given the current WTBA library, the possible patterns for the short are Sydney (33'), Stockholm (34'), Beijing (35'), and Los Angeles (36'), and Atlanta (38'), Seoul (39'), Athens (40'), and Montreal (41') for the medium; the final decisions (one pattern in each category) will be disclosed at the team managers' meeting prior to the tournament. Program sheets for various brands of lane machines can be found here. The patterns will be used as follows:

Singles: Exclusively on the short

Doubles: Exclusively on the medium

Trios & Team: Three games on each pattern in qualifying; high seed has choice of pattern in medal rounds

Masters: One lane on a pair will be dressed with each pattern, both bowlers bowl each game on the same lane, alternating with each game, higher seed has choice of starting lane

Thanks. I had checked bowl.com and the WTBA website but unfortunately nothing was on there about which nations had qualified.
