New Bowling Record for Wheelchair Users Driving by Head Array

Another month, another new dynamic wheelchair bowling record. Earlier in February, Mike Murach posted the best bowling score for a wheelchair user who drives by head array with a strong 180. In January, Timo Toivonen set the overall world record and record for males with muscular dystrophy with a ridiculously good 257. Maybe it’s the […]

New MD and Overall World Records for Dynamic Wheelchair Bowling!

Timo Toivonen: 257. That ridiculously good bowling score is now the top overall score in the world for a dynamic wheelchair bowler, and also ups the record for a male with muscular dystrophy. Dynamic just means it incorporates the movement of the wheelchair, and is not stationary ramp bowling. And for people who know me […]

For Jews, Christians, or people who are curious, the best selling book of all time – the Bible – is available online for free, and daily reading plans make it easy to consume over the course of a year or less. This link shows the many different reading plans available at the website from which […]

Wheelchair User Bowls a 232 and 607 Series

Last month, Curtis Wolff bowled a 232 in the first game of a three-game series totaling 607 pins. That is not too shabby for almost anyone, but it is ridiculously good for someone who is essentially paralyzed from his chest down. Bowling 200+ in a single game is quite an achievement for a wheelchair user. […]

Strike for Vets

A bowling fundraiser called Strike for Vets was held earlier in October to help support a spinal cord injury recovery center in Tampa called Stay in Step (non-veterans can rehab there as well). Daniel Bolan, a 17-year-old Eagle Scout with a bowling average over 200, met retired U.S. Army Special Forces Green Beret Romy Camargo, […]

Wheelchair Bowling Records

In 2009, I started a wheelchair bowling records website to share the bowling achievements of different types of wheelchair users, and also to share some of what is possible for people, despite certain physical conditions. The focus of the website is on “dynamic-style” wheelchair bowling, i.e. bowling which incorporates the movement of the wheelchair and […]

Budget Conscious Computer Deal for Voice Software Use

I recently wrote about hands-free computer use and shared a demo video of me using voice software thusly. Utilizing voice software requires a sufficient computer, and I think I found a great deal for anyone who is budget conscious (and really, who isn’t, right?). I mentioned in my earlier writeup that many folks at KnowBrainer.com […]

Wheelchair Programming for Bowling Success (with Video)

As THIS post from October explains, I got a new chair last year and it has taken a fair amount of time to program/test/tweak settings that I like for bowling. I bowl about twice a month with other local wheelchair users (we call ourselves the Central Florida Quad Squad) and I am also unable to […]

A Second 200+ Game for a 65 Year Young Woman with CP

Imagine not being able to physically pick up a bowling ball… and yet, also possessing the ability to bowl legitimately – and do it well. That does not sound possible, right? The IKAN Bowler® (and the help of a caddie) makes it possible for wheelchair users like myself and my friend Lilian Strandlund. Lilian is […]

Remembering Alex McDonald

Five years ago yesterday, our friend and fellow Quad Squad bowler Alex McDonald went to Heaven at the young age of 17 due to complications of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. His passing was sudden and unexpected, and candidly, it’s hard to believe that it’s been more than five years since I have seen the sparkle in […]
