From The President
Hello, Ladies and Gentlemen,
As we go into the second quarter of our bowling season, I’d like to reflect on the year so far. We’ve seen many changes regarding the board itself:
Sean Adams has stepped down as President to focus on his children – both in league and high school bowling – but will continue as a director on the board.
Mike Walther has stepped up to be our Vice President, taking my previous seat.
I have stepped up as our Association President and gratefully recognize all the board members who give their insights and time to serve on the Bowling Board!
Bowling Hall of Fame
On Saturday, October 15, 2022 we held our Mid MN USBC Association Bowling Hall of Fame Induction Banquet at the Sauk Rapids VFW. It was an incredible time, full of fun, laughs, and some tears. We honored the following inductees:
Mary Trettel (posthumously)
Bill Faerber and
Looking forward, we are working on getting our tournament schedule updated on the website. There are a few tournaments that we’re still finalizing dates/times for and will be added as soon as more information is available.
We’d really like to see greater participation in all of our tournaments throughout the year and I encourage you to take part if it's been awhile since you've been active in tournament play. It's always a fun competition that adds to your bowling skills in singles, doubles, and team.
The upcoming Association Tournaments (Women's and Open) are slated for the first two weekends in December at Back Alley Bowl in Milaca. So, guys and gals, get your teams put together and join us at our neighboring bowling center. I look forward to seeing you there!
Minnesota State Tournament
In February of 2023, Southway Bowl in St. Cloud will be hosting the Men’s State Bowling Tournament. We’ll be supporting Southway Bowl as much as possible to help make the tournament a tremendous success.
We’re focusing greater attention on increasing our association memberships by attracting new bowlers and encouraging bowlers to be sanctioned for scores to count. By sharing more about the sport of bowling with your friends and family, the interest often grows. Spend time at your local bowling center to see how much bowling offers as a very worthwhile and enjoyable sport!
The Amazon Smile Program is still in effect, so for those doing their holiday shopping online, please select the Mid MN USBC Association as the organization you plan to support. We truly appreciate that you keep us in mind for that as every donation helps!
I hope everyone is having an amazing start to their season and shooting awesome scores! Enjoy the rest of the bowling season and don't hesitate to ask questions or share comments with any of us on the Mid MN USBC Association Bowling Board.
