JR Raymond Named Turbo Midwest Regional Sales Manager

JR Raymond, 31, has been named Midwest Regional Sales Manager for Turbo Bowling Accessories. It was announced today by Turbo President Lori Mraz that Raymond will be responsible for the States of Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin and Indiana. He will office out of Turbo headquarters in Chesterfield, Michigan where he will also assume coaching duties at the Turbo Tech Training Center. He is a bronze level USBC Coach, working toward silver status in the near future.
Raymond lives in Saginaw where he bowled collegiately for Saginaw Valley State University and McKendree University. He was a member of the 2007 IBC Championship Team at SVSU.
Raymond cashed in 13 of 19 events on the PBA Tour in the 2014-15 season. He was the PBA Central Region Rookie of the Year in 2010. In 2009, he was a member of the Turbo Grips Team that won the USBC Team All Events title.
Raymond previously managed two bowling centers and pro shops in Michigan, and is a graduate of the BPAA Bowling Center Management School. He also has extensive outside sales experience connected to the bowling business.
“JR has been a member of pro staff since 2014,” said Mraz.  “He’s a bright young man with a passion for bowling.  He is a great fit for our team and will be valuable resource for our retailers throughout the Midwest and beyond.”
“I am extremely excited to get to work with the best grip and accessory brand in the bowling industry,” said Raymond. “It’s always been a dream of mine to work a job inside the industry. Bowling has been in my blood since I was born and getting to talk about bowling and coaching; teaching people the game inside a facility like Turbo Tech is an amazing opportunity to give back to a game that has given me so much.”
Raymond current lives in Saginaw with his fiancée Alisha Kovach and their 3-year old daughter McKenzie. They are looking to relocate to the Detroit Metro area to work from Turbo headquarters in Chesterfield. They’re planning a September wedding.

Since its beginnings in 1989, Turbo Bowling Accessories has grown to become one of the best and most innovative companies in the industry. Turbo is respected worldwide as a company that is totally committed to giving back to the global community, and improving the sport on all levels with top quality grip and accessory products; and exceptional service to distributors, pro shops, and bowlers everywhere.

Turbo Adds Russell, Brings Back Wodka,
and Promotes McNeil on Pro Player Staff

Russell.Ronnie_AS_2015PlayersChampionship(8)

Koivuniemi enters coaching role, Fagan pursues Masters Degree

With the U.S. Open Tournament right around the corner, Turbo Bowling Accessory Products President Lori Mraz and Director of Player Staff Carolyn Dorin Ballard have made some moves to beef up the group that includes representatives from regional, national and international, PBA and PWBA.

New on the world respected Turbo Staff is PBA Champion Ronnie Russell. He now owns three PBA titles after adding the PBA Badger Open this year. He also finished second in the 2015 PBA Players Championship after tying Parker Bohn III in the championship match and losing in the two frame rolloff.

Matt McNeil has been on the staff for a few years as an amateur, but has been promoted to the Touring Pro Staff after turning pro. He anchored the Dead Money Team to win the Inaugural PBA Team Challenge in the recent PBA Fall Classic in Las Vegas. He is also in contention to win the PBA Holman Roth Doubles with partner Anthony Pepe. The finals will be held December 19 at the National Bowling Stadium in Reno. His last title as an amateur was the 2015 USBC Open Championships All Events title with a huge 2226. It was his 4th USBC title at age 30.

Returning to the Tour Staff is 44 year old Dave Wodka, who has returned to the tour full time while also representing Ebonite as a District Sales Manager. “I was with Turbo from 1994-2000 and it is great to be back with such a wonderful company,” he said. “Lori and Dave do a great job for the bowling industry and it is an honor to be back on the Turbo Pro Staff.”

Says President, Lori Mraz, “Our brand is regarded for quality and innovation.   Our professional staff is an extension of those values. We’re delighted to welcome these new athletes to our team and continuing to inspire future generations.’

In other Turbo Staff news, Mika Koivuniemi will remain on the International Player Staff as he assumes the role of Head Coach in the United Arab Emirates, and PBA Champion Mike Fagan, a member of the National Player Staff, will cut his tour schedule back to part time as he pursues his Masters Degree from the University of California Berkley.

6th Annual Turbo Tech Collegiate Expo Gears Up for Indy

2016-Coll-Expo-post

In only five short years, the Turbo Tech Collegiate Expo has become bowling’s undisputed best college recruiting event. 

In 2016, the 6th edition of this prestigious event will be held at Western Bowl in Indianapolis, Indiana, July 12-14. And since Western Bowl has 80 lanes and plenty of meeting space, the number of spots available has been expanded to its largest field yet of 204 student bowlers.

Turbo Regional Sales Manager and Pro Staff Coordinator Carolyn Dorin-Ballard will again serve as Event Director. “I am confident we will fill the event again this year,” said Dorin-Ballard. “Last year, (with 168 spots available) we had 44 kids on a waiting list. We’ve been getting calls the past couple of months from parents eager to sign up for this year’s event. It’s exciting and rewarding, and it shows that what we’re doing is making a difference.”

General Manager Jim Doty is looking forward to hosting the 2016 Collegiate Expo. “Royal Pin and Western Bowl is honored to be chosen to host this awesome event,” he said. The Turbo Tech Collegiate Expo is, in my opinion, the best event in the country to help our young adult bowlers improve their game and by doing so helps to continue the ‘Sport of Bowling’.”

Dorin-Ballard and Turbo President Lori Mraz are going all out this year to make sure that every student athlete in attendance gets all of the attention they deserve both in the classroom seminars and during on-the-lane instruction. From USBC Gold and Silver certified instructors, PBA Tour Champions, Team USA veterans, PWBA contenders, Collegiate All-Americans and industry experts, the collective team of coaching representatives is impressive.  Turbo coaches returning this year in addition to Dorin-Ballard are Diandra Asbaty, Lindsay Boomershine Jeff Carter, Jason Couch, Tim Mack, Shannon Pluhowsky, Bill Spigner, Jordan Vanover, and world respected Sports psychologist Dr. Dean Hinitz.

Because of expanded student registration, new coaches Josh Blanchard, Hank Boomershine, Tom Carter, Ryan Ciminelli, Ron Hatfield, Ronnie Russell and Dave Wodka have been added.

Another improvement this year includes limited one-hour classroom seminars so students will get more time to put what they learn into practice on the lanes. “We have learned over the years that students want to bowl and bowl,” said Dorin-Ballard, “So we’re making sure that we schedule the seminars and on-lane segments so that students get the much wanted on-lane time with coaches but also the reasonable break periods needed, and that are important, for them to perform physically and mentally.”

No event of this magnitude would be possible without sponsors, and Turbo is proud the sponsor partnerships it has developed over the past six years.  Returning in 2016, and with enhanced sponsorship, “Columbia and Hammer are stepping up again in 2016 sponsoring our photo booth and registration bags,” said Mraz. “Logo Infusion will once again be the sponsor of the Audition Tournament and provide an event jersey to all student bowlers. Our partnership with Bowlers Journal will again allow every student to receive a one year paid subscription to the magazine. Storm will be sponsoring our Round Table for Collegiate Coaches; and will coordinate a presentation on Building a Team Arsenals with other ball companies while Kegel will sponsor and host our College Coaches Dinner on Wednesday evening.  We couldn’t be more pleased with the enthusiastic support of all of our sponsors.

Space is limited.  This event will SELL OUT!  So REGISTER early!  Save $30 during Early-Bird Registration Now – April 30th. Additional questions, please call Turbo directly at 800-530-9878, Monday-Friday, 8:30a-5p Eastern or e-mail Event Administrator, Megan Bernhardt, mbernhardt@turbogrips.com.
