As we prepare for the completion of another bowling season, I would like to take time to reflect on the past season successes. I am very pleased of the fact that this board continues to work well together during great times and especially works well under difficult circumstances. We continued to cross train all members of the board to expand knowledge of our board. I would like to commend the entire board for their work efforts to help accomplish this. We must remember that it is our job to focus on all the children from the 4 year old with a 15 average to the scratch bowler who maintains an average better than most of us.
The 47th Annual MAUSBCYA Championship tournament ran very smoothly. The tournament was held at Auburn Lanes and ran very smoothly. A special thanks to the staff and AMF Auburn and the Worcester County Board for their organization of lane marshals to help the tournament run efficiently. Once again we welcomed the bowlers from Rhode Island. I would like to thank the entire board for their continued commitment to make sure this tournament is well run. I would especially like to thank Lauren for the literally hundreds of hours that is put into this tournament as well as keeping up to date with the other duties of the association manager. As we look forward we begin to prepare for the next years tournament at Mt Greylock Bowl in North Adams.
The singles tournament also ran well and was held at Town & Country Lanes. Thank you to Mike for a great job and the time that is takes to prepare this tournament. We look forward to working with Mike again next year in running this tournament.
This year's youth leader's doubles tournament was also a success. I would like to thank Carl for his efforts in running this tournament. We tried something new this year and moved the tournament to the first weekend of December to obtain more entries. We did not see much success with that so the tournament will be moved back to March for next year. The tournament was held at Cove Lanes.
The YBC tournament was well run and held at AMF Town & Country. Bob organized the Pepsi tournament and I would like to thank him for all his work and time that was put into organizing this tournament and thanks to the board for their support that day.
Thank you to all of the associations for your continued dedication to the youth of our state. It gives me great pleasure when I realize the number of centers that have youth leagues and that no matter what changes we are all always there for all the youth.
Once again thanks to all the association leaders, coaches, and the MAUSBCYA Board for another great year. Please enjoy your summer, participate in our summer tournament and I look forward to another great year.
Yours in Bowling Fun
