2014 Inductees


John R. Bootz Jr. also known as Rodney was elected into the Mid Hudson USBC Hall of Fame for Service.  John was born March 27, 1964 to his parents John and Nancy. Johnís father passed away when John was young. Mom had been bowling in a league in New Paltz and brought John and his sisters, Barbara and Dolores along with her. This was the inspiration that gave John an interest in bowling.

John started bowling in adult leagues in the early 1980ís in the Mid Hudson Firemanís League and in 1986 became the secretary . John is now in his 28th year as secretary of that league. He also was secretary of the Bud Taylor Memorial League that at itís peak had thirty 5 man teams.

Johnís first seven seasonís of bowling were just fun firing the ball as fast he could down the lane. There are many that will remember hearing and seeing the pins fly. With the desire to become a better bowler, a new ball from his sisters, some advice and a few pointers from friends John accomplished this. Since 1997 he has averaged 206 with a life time average of 196. He also has bowled three 300 games, four 800 series, one 299 game, one 298 game, two 290 games, and many 700 series. His high series came at a Firemanís tournament in Vestal, N.Y . where he shot 812.

Throughout the last 13 years John has helped the Mid Hudson USBC by organizing and bringing 7 or more teams to the annual Open Tournaments. John plans to continue to serve as secretary and support the Mid Hudsonís tournaments.

Congratulations to John on his election to the Mid-Hudson USBCís Hall of Fame.
