Venezuelan PBA Open



$20,000 VENEZUELAN PBA OPEN
Pin Cinco Lanes, Caracas, Venezuela, May 3-9, 1965

"Smitty" Too Much In Caracas

The Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) took its tournament show out of the country as 16 men invaded Caracas, Venezuela, for a 48-game match play test.

Harry Smith was the big man in this one as-he captured the $2,000 first prize by 333 pins. Smith broke out in front at the opening gun and was a wire-to-wire winner.

The boys were slightly jolted when radicals machine-gunned the U.S. Embassy two blocks from the bowling lanes. But "Smitty" was the proverbial cucumber as he racked up his eighth PBA championship.
