DAILYS JUICERS OVERTHROW OLD TIMERS FOR
POSSESSION OF CHANCELLOR'S CUP

The King is dead. Long live the King.

The traditional proclamation that is made following the accession of a new monarch is appropriate for Bill Christy’s Dailys Juicers, the first-time proprietors of Penn State New Kensington’s Chancellor's Cup, the symbol of bowling supremacy at the Alle-Kiski Society’s tenth annual Bowl-a-thon.

After a three-year reign by the Old Timers, the Juicers were prepared March 25 to orchestrate a palace coup.  The usurpers, led by Mike Digirolamo’s 260 game and 664 set, finally toppled the royal family of campus bowling. The Old Timers had been on the throne for five of the past six years. Last year, they fended off a Juicers rebellion by eking out a three-pin victory.

The cup is now province of King Christy and his noblemen, Carl Arabia, Mike Hopf and Digirolamo. The names of the royal court will be inscribed on the cup that is displayed in the trophy case in the lobby of the Conference Center.

Aside from the campus skirmish, the bowl-a-thon brought together more than 170 Penn State alumni, friends, students, faculty and staff who formed 36 teams and filled all the lanes of Wildlife Lanes in Lower Burrell. The bowl-a-thon is the Alle-Kiski society's spring fundraiser, and all proceeds will benefit campus projects and the "Alle-Kiski Society Endowed Scholarship" that funds yearly awards to campus undergraduates. For 2011-12, the society awarded $3,000 in scholarships to Gretchen Toy of Kittanning, Pa; Shanna Williams and Corey Zell of Apollo, Pa; and Vanessa Peck and Justin Tinnemeyer of Lower Burrell, Pa. Since 1998, the society has awarded $33,000 to 43 campus students.

The scholarship amount is expected to rise dramatically in the future as the alumni group grows its endowment level by 50 percent over the next 30 months. Two years ago, the society pledged to increase the principal by $25,000, from its current total of $51,000 to $76,000 by June 2014.

The society's next major fundraiser is the alumni golf scramble that is set for Friday, Aug. 10, at the Links at Spring Church. For information on the golf outing, call 724-334-6049 or uxw1@psu.edu via email.
