The Board of Directors would like to welcome everyone back for a new season of bowling. A big change for this year is the launch of our new local association awards program. This program consists of awards for honor scores and other special achievements, is in addition to the existing USBC awards program, and carries no additional cost to the bowler. Anyone holding a current sanction card in both the USBC and the Niagara Falls Bowling Association is eligible for these local awards.
The Board put a lot of time and effort into launching this program, and we think the Niagara Falls bowling community is going to be pleased with the results. Please click here to see the award form. All league secretaries have copies of these forms, so if you bowl a qualifying score (see the award form for details on qualifying scores), please get a form from your league secretary to fill out.
The cost of this program was significant, and in order to help offset as much as possible, the Board sold $5 lottery tickets for the month of October. A good number of tickets were sold, but we need to do better. It is the Board’s hope that we only need to sell these tickets for 2 months to fund the program for a full season. Tickets will be sold again in early 2016, so if you like what we have come up with for the awards, please consider buying a ticket to support the program.
We are currently accepting nominations for our Hall of Fame. Please see the link below for a copy of the nomination form. The form can be emailed to us at email@example.com, or mailed to our Business Manager, Mr. Anthony Quaranto, at 3929 McKoon Avenue, Niagara Falls, NY 14305.
We would also like to hear from any bowlers with potential candidates for the Bowler of the Year awards. As the season progresses, please email us or talk to any board member with your thoughts on this. We award both a Bowler of the Year and a Senior Bowler of the Year. Please keep in mind that in order for accomplishments to be considered (for Bowler of the Year or Hall of Fame), they must have been bowled in a sanctioned league.
This year’s Association Tournament will be held at Lewiston Events Center in March 2016. LEC has made some outstanding renovations over the past year, so if you don’t bowl in a league there, this tournament is a perfect excuse to get to LEC and check them out. We also encourage you to patronize the other two centers in our Association – Bowl O Drome and Rapids Bowling Center. We are very fortunate to have three really great centers in our Association!
