Streaming situation

by Bob Johnson 0

Owing to the lack of sufficient broadband speed at the bowling center in Asti, the planned  live web streaming of the Brunswick Italia Challenge has not been able to be conducted.

However, a request has been made to the internet provider to upgrade the system with sufficient strength to supply all needs and this could (perhaps) be in place on Friday.

In the meantime, efforts will be made to show some action from Thursday's two squads (14:00 and 18:00 CET), which will feature some PBA bowlers and many European stars. "But bear with us if the speed is not good enough for the time being," BJI's Keith Hale says.

When operational, the URL will be: www.ustream.com/channel/brunswick-italia-challenge

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.
