Vent-Dependent Quadriplegic Bowls 10th 200+ Game

I, Bill Miller, am paralyzed from my neck down and ventilator-dependent, yet I recently bowled my 10th legitimate game of 200 or better.  I state that not to brag, but to help drive home the point that ANY WHEELCHAIR USER — who can safely operate his/her wheelchair — CAN BOWL in dynamic fashion with the […]

Alex McDonald’s Enters 200 Club with 201 and 213!Last month, my friend Alex McDonald became the fourth IKAN User (to my knowledge) to bowl 200 or better!  That day Alex bowled a 201 to join the 200 Club — and just two weeks later — Alex bowled a 213 to up the record for male […]

A New Record for Male Sip-and-Puff Wheelchair Bowlers!

At Quad Squad Bowling recently, I bowled a 221, which beat my previous high game (206) by 15 pins!  🙂I must say, I had quite a bit of good luck.  I opened with a spare, then four consecutive strikes, followed by two open frames, then three consecutive strikes (the third strike was the first ball […]

New Website for Wheelchair Bowling Records!

The IKAN ("I can") Bowler can enable virtually any wheelchair user to bowl dynamically (involving the movement of the wheelchair; not stationary ramp bowling) and the sport of dynamic wheelchair bowling is legitimate, says the United States Bowling Congress (USBC).  The USBC sanctioned the IKAN Bowler® for league and tournament play — any league or […]

New Record for a Female Using Sip-and-Puff!

My friend and fellow Quad Squad member Rhonda Reese set a new record for dynamic wheelchair bowling by a female driving her chair by sip-and-puff. After not being able to bowl for about six months, Rhonda shook the rust off her bowling game and bowled an impressive 170 — beating her previous best by a […]

Update to Keys and Tips for DWB

I added some info to my previous blog entry (Keys & Tips for Dynamic Wheelchair Bowling) but since it’s so long, I thought I should post the new info here for anyone who read that previously.   In this blog entry, I elaborate on:   • CHAIR IN (AT LEAST) DECENT DRIVING CONDITION • STOPPING […]

Keys and Tips for Dynamic Wheelchair Bowling

Dynamic wheelchair bowling is the sport that was created by the development of the IKAN (“I can”) Bowler. The bowling is “dynamic” because it incorporates the movement of the wheelchair. The bowling process with an IKAN Bowler is basically the same as what able-bodied bowlers perform: setup for the shot, then physically approach the foul […]

Last month I introduced you to Angie Keiser, a delightful, record-setting woman who is 65-years-young.  The person who introduced Angie to IKAN-style bowling was Lilian Strandlund, Angie’s good friend, who is also a delightful, record-setting woman. Born with cerebral palsy that has her using a power wheelchair, Lilian is 59-years-young and has never let her disability […]
