The City of Firsts USBC Association wants to remind all of its members of the annual meeting at 2 p.m. today at the Eagles on Lincoln Road. Business will be conducted such as the yearly financial report, association manager’s report, president’s report and voting of directors and president and second VP. In addition, tournament checks will be distributed at this meeting.
The Hall of Fame and Recognition Banquet is May 10 at the Grotto on Reed Road. Tickets are $20 each and can be picked up at all bowling centers or from any board member. If you have any trouble finding one, contact Gary Trent at 765-271-6937 or myself at 765-271-4626, Festivities start at 5 p.m.
The 2014 inductees are Trent Marner for Outstanding Bowler, Cloyd Long for Star of Yesteryear, DiAnne Rickel for Outstanding Bowler, Kim (Akers) Ciarlante for Outstanding Bowler and James (Jim) Robison for Special Service as Outstanding Sponsor. These are well-deserving women and men and I hope that all of you would come out to help them celebrate on this great evening.
The evening starts at 5 p.m. with appetizers and a cash bar with dinner soon after. The menu for the dinner will be salad, chicken breast with creamy sauce topped with cheese and breadcrumbs, baked swiss steak with brown gravy, buttered corn, California blend, mashed potatoes and many desserts. Ice tea and lemonade will be provided.
We do need a count of all who are going to attend by May 1, so if you are going to attend, get that ticket bought and plan on a fun evening with friends and fine food. Please, no walk-ins.
There may be some leagues coming down to the final weeks and it may not seem like it because it is still so cold outside and it just isn’t spring weather outside. But spring break is just around the corner and some leagues try to be done before break. So secretaries, make sure you get your final average sheets to Gary Exmeyer so that he can finish your league and send it in to USBC.
