An Open Letter to our members – ADULTS AND YOUTH…………..
Welcome! Hopefully, this season is off to a better start than last!
Your state association will again be recognizing all FIRST TIME 300 GAMES/800 SERIES for both men and women. This is at NO cost whatsoever to your association. Has YOUR association applied for these awards for YOUR accomplishments? If not, ask them why…………
And here are some more awards that your state pays for. Applications are listed on our website under forms/association
  • 600 club and 700 club memberships (women)
  • The Grant Program – available to smaller associations with combined memberships of 1500 or less members
  • Scholarships will again be offered to our youth members
  • Hall of Fame Recognition

    For Our Youth
As we hope you all know the state receives no dues for the Youth. We rely on contributions from our local associations.
So, what do your bowlers receive?
         Two free team entries to the next year’s State Tournament per association
         Honor Score Recognition (300, 800 – 700 for girls) and 298 & 299 games
         High Average Recognition – Association Level
         High Average Recognition – State Level
         Schildroth Invitational Tournament – Scholarship points awarded – top four in each age/gender division
         High Series Recognition – Association Level
         High Series Recognition – State Level
         Most Improved Recognition
         All Michigan Teams (1st and 2nd – girls and boys)
And any other award programs that the Michigan State USBC may be considering or will consider implementing in the future.
These award programs are provided to all those associations that support the State Association with their financial donations. We do ask that all donations be made no later than April 1, 2022  and be representative of their  youth membership for the entire 2021-2022 season. This will enable us to determine which associations are eligible for the Invitational tournament and end of the year awards. A complete list of donors is posted on our website and is updated as donations are received. If your association is not listed, please inquire as to why……. we want to recognize ALL our youth in the state!
For those associations that did not participate in the program last year, we invite you to join us this year by making a financial donation to the state which is representative of your youth membership. And for those of you that did participate, we hope you will continue to support your youth through your financial support.
In addition, we hope you are all receiving the “Ten Pin Topics” which is our primary means of communicating with our members. If you do not receive this electronic newsletter, please let us know so that we can add you to our list. And please like us on our Facebook Page as well. (Michigan State USBC Bowling).
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by phone, letter or email.
We look forward to working with all of you!
