Bowling - 2003
Tenpin bowler Norm Meyers won four Classic Division championships in the 1960s and 70s. He also finished in the top ten another 16 times, including the runner-up position on four occasions.
In 1963, Norm captured the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) title in Seattle. Altogether, he won four national ABC and four Pacific Coast bowling titles.
In one period, he shot five straight 1900 series, an American Bowling Congress (ABC) tournament record. In 1971, he bowled series of 847, 816 and 806 in a four-hour span in a doubles tournament.
He was the first man named Southern California Bowler of the Year three times, 1961, 1964 and 1966. Norm was named to the Southern California All Star Team six times.
Raised in Southern California, Meyers moved to St. Louis after his 1969 marriage, joining his brother-in-law, tenpin superstar Dick Weber, on the famous Falstaff bowling team.
The top Junior bowler in Southern California during the 1940s, Norm is now honored with the regional Junior Bowling Award in his name, a tribute to his highly regarded devotion towards teaching young bowlers.
In 1975, Norm was inducted into the Southern California Bowling Hall of Fame. The ABC Hall of Fame elected him in 1984.
