2009 Women's World Championships - 06/05/09 05:32 PM

Thought I'd start the thread on the upcoming women's world championships by posting that the USBC has announced the six-member team that will represent the US at the Cashman Center on the USBC Open lanes from July 27 to August 2. The team consists of Lynda Barnes and Stefanie Nation, who competed in the last two women's world championships, along with Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, Liz Johnson, Kim Terrell-Kearney, and Wendy Macpherson.

Missed posting this when it first appeared...

With the entry deadline now past, it was announced that a record 46 nations will compete in this World Women's Championships. As far as the oil patterns the women will compete on, there is a bank of 3 short and 3 medium patterns, from which Mexico's Daniel Falconi, one of the technical delegates for the event, will select one short and one medium pattern and reveal them to the team managers at their meeting on July 26.

Re: 2009 Women's World Championships - 07/18/09 03:26 PM

Technical delegate Daniel Falconi has decided on Stockholm for the short pattern and Athens for the medium pattern. Stockholm will be used exclusively for singles and Athens exclusively for doubles, while the trios and team events will use both patterns. I'm not sure which pattern will be used in the Masters competition.

The website for the event is http://www.2009wwc.com, BTW

I have also found the list of participants. Some names may be familiar, but there is one name not generally known but fairly familiar to us on this site: that would be Karmen Luksa of Slovenija, who happens to be Marko's sister. smile

Wow, pretty low scores! Richie, do you know the oil patterns used?

Re: 2009 Women's World Championships - 07/31/09 01:45 PM

Dennis, the WTBA Stockholm pattern, the lane graph for which I linked in a previous post in this thread, was the pattern in use in the singles event.

Re: 2009 Women's World Championships - 07/31/09 03:51 PM

Richie, don't know why, but the first time I clicked on that, I got a listing of Hotels in Stockholm. Anyhow, my House shot seems tougher than that. It only uses 24 ml of oil over 34 feet. That's a horrible pattern. My house uses 26 ml over 39 feet for the shortest one.

My entire arsenal would make a turn in 20 feet or less.

Dennis, as you probably noticed, you wanted the link w/ the single underline, not the double one. wink

So far, USA is sick nasty. At the moment they have 14/17 strikes in the trios and every one has at least a string of 4.

I thought the trios semifinals were supposed to start @ 9:30 PM EDT. This means I missed the semifinals. frown
