Absolutely love seeing the lanes from back in the 80's and 90's, very iconic for some of the centers which are not with us anymore, as are some of the bowlers who made the show. Many memories relived ...watching all the videos. Thanks for bringing back some great history in the town that lives bowling and produced so many great bowlers through the years! See More

So many great memories were created for my family because of the King of TV. My father brought me along to watch several events when I was young. My true wish is for this show to return to the TriSta...te. This page was created in hopes of gaining the sponsors needed to bring the show back. With everyone's help we can make this happen. So spread the word and lets get the King show back on the air! Love ya Dad, Hope your enjoying these matches as much as I am. See More

2018 IRON MAN Bowling Tournament!
Heid's Doubles Day #1
Bowler X "I Disagree" That Bowling is a Dying Sport.

Coming up June 1st - 3rd, Get your chance to work with the Kegel Training Center greats : Jim Merrell , Del Warren and Randy Stoughton at Eastern Lanes in Middletown, Ohio.

Jim Merrell

Background history of the Intensive Road Show. Last July, while at Kegel during a lunch break, I explained to Del Warren my idea of the having the best ever bow...ling camp in Middletown, Ohio. Somewhere around 2008 Del and I both worked in the BTM Super School Camp in Middletown, Ohio. At that camp, there were 100 students and the coach to pupil ratio was high (decision of the BTM director).
Fast forward to 2018, my plan, still charge the same amount that was paid in 2008, but the camp coaches would be the Kegel Training center staff. And another important change, the ratio of student to coach would be no greater than 8:1. At the camp, each coach will have four lanes for his eight students.
Short story, at the 2008 camp there was a lady (mid 40’s) in my group who told me she wanted to throw the ball just like a younger woman in my group. However, she said she didn’t want to change a thing in her physical game. Anyone have a magic wand? I didn’t. So, if you’re attitude is that of this woman PLEASE do not sign up for this camp.
If on the other hand, you want to become the best you can be, this camp is your magic wand (just kidding no magic involved). If you are open to change, a hard worker driven to succeed your game will evolve during those three days and beyond. There’s a good chance you will experience an ah-ha moment during the camp.
We will be using competitive lane conditions each day at the camp. That’s because I believe competitive lane conditions both challenge and identify the better athlete. For all you JOG players, this will be a great preparation experience for your game. Let’s not just attend JOG but be competitive and leave feeling good about your performance!
Since this is the first time for an event of this magnitude, we are not sure of the total attendance. As you can see there are two coaches on the flyer, staff from Kegel will be added as enrollment increases.
Enrollment for this event will be maxed out at 32 athletes in order to maintain a productive student to coach ratio. So, if you ever thought about going to Kegel in Florida or would like to understand how to get your game to the next level, don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity in Middletown, Ohio. I will be a camp director for this event, so I hope to see you there. Please share and help spread the word.
