BIG NEWS from USBC

This past July, USBC voted to make all local associations merge.  In case you are not aware, when the ABC, WIBC, and YABA combined to form the USBC about 10 years ago, they recommended all local men, women, and youth associations merge to form one local bowling association.  Not long after that, the Dunkirk Bowling Association (men) and the Dunkirk Women's Bowling Association merged to form the Dunkirk Lakeshore USBC Association.  The Grape Belt Association voted against merging with the adults and became the Grape Belt USBC Youth Association.

Now, USBC is forcing all associations to merge.  This means the Grape Belt USBC Youth Association will have to become part of the Dunkirk Lakeshore Association at the beginning of the 2018-2019 season.

Stay tuned for more information on this big change.

MEETING NOTICE:

The next association meeting will be held Jan. 31, 2016 at 7:30 pm at Lucky Lanes.  All officers should attend.  All interested bowlers and parents are invited to attend as well.

We will discuss the tournament and the Bob Frame Educational Grant.  We will also welcome Debbie Dispense as our new association manager.
