NOTICE OF BOWLING CENTER TRANSFERS

All Southeast PA USBC BOWLERS…

Notice of Bowling Center Transfers to the Bucks County USBC Association

(Bowlero Feasterville, T-Bird Castor, T-Bird Holme Ave, Pike Lanes)

Our Board of Directors was notified that four Centers had submitted requests to transfer their affiliation from Southeast PA USBC to the Bucks County USBC. Their requests were approved by USBC National; effective 8/1/19

This change will affect bowlers who participate in leagues at these four Centers and….Centers that are affiliated with the Southeast PA USBC. A bowler’s affiliation will be determined by where (which league) they complete their membership card and pay their membership fee. Our dues are $25 standard adult; $20 senior league* and $4 youth membership.

You may be affected in the following way(s):

  • When joining the secondary league, you will have to pay an additional local association fee (Southeast PA USBC- $12.00 or Bucks County- ?).
  • Your association affiliation will determine the awards, recognition, service and programs you are entitled to on the local level.
  • Should you wish to bowl in a tournament outside your association affiliation, you can be charged the local association fee for participation.
  • Any issues will be handled by the association you are affiliated with.

Please direct any questions or comments to:

2019 SOUTHEAST PA USBC GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING SUMMARY

UPDATED JUNE 12, 2019

Our annual membership meeting was held last Sunday (6/9) in the Community Room of the Willow Grove Super Giant. For those in attendance, we were able to give an overview of the Board’s activities during the 2018-19 season. We presented the association’s current financial status and discussed why changes were made to the awards program. We value the input that was received from attendees and hope that they will communicate reasons for our decision-making process to fellow bowlers.

An election for new officers and directors was held. Congratulations to Alva Turner, President-elect; Jackie Carroll, Vice-President-elect, Nicholena Ruston, Sergeant at Arms-elect and Donald Armstead, Director-elect. We look forward to communicating the vision and new directions the Board will take under this new administration.

It is not too late. We are looking to fill additional director positions and volunteers for our various committees. Currently, we especially need volunteers to help conduct our lane certification program. If you are interested, please contact our office: southeastpausbc@gmail.com.
