TV for Euro Challenge

by Bob Johnson 0

The champion of the 2010 Brunswick Euro Challenge will be determined on live television —

specifically, Eurosport 2.

The one-hour telecast is scheduled for Sunday, March 14 at 17:30 CET.

The BEC is the fifth stop on the 2010 European Bowling Tour, and preliminary rounds of the tournament will begin this Friday at Plaza Bowling Center in St. Maximin (Paris), France.

Already, 475 bowlers from 36 countries have registered, assuring that the BEC will continue to be one of the best-attended tournaments in all of Europe.

Additional information of the BEC and the slate of seminars being held in conjunction with the event may be found at brunswickeurochallenge.com.

Bob Johnson has received more national writing awards than any other bowling writer — close to 70 over the course of his 40-year career. He began at age 16 as a staff writer and then assistant editor for the weekly Pacific Bowler newspaper in his native California, and within three years was writing feature stories for Bowlers Journal. He has written for the magazine ever since, except for a five-year span when he was hired as the founding editor of another magazine. He moved to Chicago in 2000 and spent 13 years in the Windy City, including five as Bowlers Journal’s Editor. In 1975, Johnson received the Robert E. Kennedy Award as California’s top undergraduate high school journalist. Five years earlier, on the lanes, he had shared the Bantam Division Doubles championship in the Orange County Junior Bowling Association Championships. Today, he continues to work full-time for Bowlers Journal as its Senior Editor, to write his popular “Strikes Me” column, and to edit Luby Publishing Inc.’s weekly business-to-business Cyber Report.
