FROM THE ASSOCIATION MANAGER
I. CARRAWAY, JR.
you have been on the website before, you will notice that it has a new
look. This is through the efforts of the new webmaster, Danny
Mausolf. I want to thank him for his efforts.
There have been many changes over the last year that will affect
you. USBC has stopped issuing any awards except for honor
scores. These have been changed to only one in a lifetime.
Other awards have been eliminated. The awards we provide have
been 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 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.
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.
Membership fees for the Adult Standard card will not change for the
2015-2016 season. The fee is still $20.00 with $10.00 for USBC,
$9.00 for Local and $1.00 for State. A membership card purchased
in a summer league will expire at the end of the current season.
Another card has been established for a membership in a league that is
18 weeks or less. It will cost $11.00 and be good for ONE LEAGUE
only. If you should sub in another league, you will be required
to purchase another membership. There will not be any awards
issued for this membership fee.
Youth membership methods have changed. Cards will cost $11.00
which includes $4.00 for USBC and $6.00 for TVUSBC and $1.00 for the
State. There is a contract between the bowling centers and TVUSBC
to process leagues. Awards for youth will be provided by us.
We will do something different in 2016 for the open and women’s
tournament. We plan to hold them in AMF Norfolk at the same time
as we did two years ago. AMF Norfolk was large enough that we
were able to accommodate them both in three weeks. We will be
holding our 27th Annual Senior Tournament in December at Pinboys At The
Beach. AMF Norfolk will be hosting the 22nd Annual Mixed Tournament
November 14-15 and 21-22.
If you have any questions, problems or recommendations, please do not
hesitate to contact me or one of the lane representatives at your
