ABEL AND WEBER IN LANSING
Joy Abel (second from left) and Dick Weber (second from right) proudly displayed their championship trophies alongside two BPAA members at the 1966 BPAA All-Star Tournament, hosted at Joe Joseph’s Pro Bowl in Lansing, Michigan. This marked a significant departure, as the event transitioned to a commercial bowling center instead of specially constructed lanes. Weber claimed the top prize of $15,000, while Abel secured $5,000 for her victory in the women’s division.
