"I decided a few years ago if I ever had the privilege of serving as convention chair, we would have to go to the desert. And what better place to go to than the “sunniest” city in America, Tucson, Arizona!"

Hello Members!

I’m hoping that everyone is busy with the “back to bowling” rush and that product is going out the doors at a rapid pace. I love the start of the season, makes me feel better after the long summer months.

The third edition of the BBIA Bowling Catalog is in circulation. As we discussed at our last membership meeting there is an electronic version of this year’s publication. Check it out…use it, share it if you like. I really think it’s a neat tool. To access it see the link at the bottom (center) of the page or simply click this link:
The link is also available on the IBPSIA website.

Our October Board meeting is right around the corner and we are currently working on the agenda for that meeting. Do you have issues, ideas, or things you’d like our Board to discuss and get into motion? I’d love an email or a call from you so I can get to work on issues that affect us all..

Stay healthy and be sure to have some fun!
