     It has been some time since I updated the information in my message, so I want to take this time to apologize for failing to be more current.

     There have been changes over the past year that may have affected you. Several of the awards were modified and new ones have been added. Awards for lower average bowlers have been added and many of our members who have never received an award are pleasantly surprised to be recognized for their accomplishments. We attempt to get the awards back to the league secretary within seven days of the receipt of them in the office. Everyone is taking advantage of
the conditions this season to bowl many more award scores than in the past. There will be
additional award changes by USBC brought up at the convention in Reno in May. Watch this letter for information when it has been approved.

     If you have internet access and have an e-mail address you should be receiving information directly from USBC about the various changes and developments that are happening. Hopefully, this information has been helpful and interesting. As I have said before, there are many changes in the pipeline and they will be announced as final plans are made. It is USBC’s, and our hope that this method of communication will better keep you informed.

     Membership fees for the Standard card will not change for the 2013-2014 season. The fee is still $20.00 with $10.00 for USBC, $9.00 for Local and $1.00 for State. If you bowl in a Sport league, there is an additional $15.00 membership fee. For this additional fee, you will receive a multitude of additional benefits. One change is that membership cards purchased in a summer league will expire at the end of the current season rather than
be good for an additional year.

We did something different this year for the open and women’s tournament. We held them in the same house at the same time. AMF Norfolk was large enough that we were able to accommodate them both in three weeks. We will be holding our 19th Annual Mixed Tournament in June at AMF Lynnhaven because AMF Norfolk will be hosting the State Open Tournament for doubles and singles.

     If you have any questions, problems or recommendations, please do not hesitate to contact me or one of the lane representatives at your bowling center.
