Lou Dupuis Bowler-of-the-Year
Dupuis earned his positions after posting the only plus-200 average in the W-ECBA’s jurisdiction during the past season, a 201 record in the King Louie Classic at Crescent Lanes. Along with the 192 mark he posted in the Bowlero Major Handicap, this gave Dupuis a 196.5 composite average.
Dupuis succeeds John Pavicic as bowler-of-the-year. Another local favourite who has been number one before, Lou Matassa, finished second to Dupuis in this year’s balloting. Matassa had a combined average of 194.5, posting 194 in the Rose Bowl All-Star Classic and 195 in the Rose Bowl Major Handicap. Joining Dupuis and Matassa on the All-Star team are Joe Beaulieu and Jim Leonard with 195.7 and 195.6 averages in the Rose Bowl All-Star Classic and Andy Garlatti with 195 mark.
[info_box] Did you know that? Anyone at any age can become an organ and tissue donor. The oldest organ donor on record was over 90 years of age and the oldest corneal donor was 102 years old. Only patients who have suffered brain death in hospital can become organ donors because vital organs must be maintained artificially by a ventilator so they can be transplanted. However, only those whose hearts have stopped and cannot, therefore, be artificially supported by a ventilator (the heart and lungs have stopped working), can become tissue donors. Most religions support organ donation as an act of kindness. Organ donation does not preclude an open-casket funeral. When clothed, the body shows no outward sign of surgery.Transplants can save health care costs: the cost of a kidney transplant averages $20,000 plus $6,000 per year thereafter ($50,000 over five years). Maintaining a kidney patient on dialysis costs $50,000 per year ($250,000 over five years). To find out more about registering your consent, please contact the Ontario transplant program:
