In early April, Missy visited Lemoore Naval Air Station in Central, California for the second year-in-a-row. After a fun first year visit, Lemoore bowlers asked Missy to come back and requested an even larger field for the clinics. This time around, Missy brought father, Frank Bellinder to help out with the clinics and answer any questions parents may have in regards to helping Missy during her junior bowling years.
Missy first put on a clinic for 20 junior bowlers and then conducted an adult clinic for 15 adults.
If you are interested in having Missy conduct a clinic or make an appearance at your bowling center, please contact Missy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy the pics!

After the Malaysian Open, my roomie Shalin Zulkifli and her husband took me to a few cool places before I headed back home to the States.
First, we went to Batu Caves, a gorgeous Hindu temple that has a HUGE gold statue of one of the Hindu gods. There are a million steep stairs leading up to the top of the cave (272 to be exact.) (They were numbered.) Upon arrival at the top, there's a dark cave with statues of Hindu gods and that leads to another cave that is open-air, allowing sunlight to come in.
Another unique sight was the abundance of wild monkeys around the entire grounds. It must have been that time of year too because a lot of the mothers had baby monkeys hanging on to their bellies as they roamed around and climbed up the trees and stairs. The place was absolutely amazing!
From the hot sweltering outdoors of Batu Caves, we then travelled up into the clouds to the much cooler resort of Genting Highlands. The hotel, casino, theme park resort truly resembles Vegas in a one-stop shop. If you've ever been to Vegas, Genting Highlands takes the best of each Vegas casino and combines it into one. Complete with the Venetian gondola rides and the Rio floats, this place has it all, plus more. Other activities include: Snow World, a room full of real snow for kids and adults alike to play in, along with a toboggan run and a Ripley's Believe It or Not museum.
We even went to the outdoor theme park, but the bad weather had many of the roller coasters closed for the day.
All in all, my entire trip to Asia was a lot of fun! Enjoy the pics!
Also, check out the video of one of the bowlers from Chinese Taipei. For those of you that have never seen a spinner bowl, this will be a treat. But be sure to notice that he's also wearing a big wrist support. I've NEVER seen a spinner wear a wrist support before.
