Some Information for future reference:

The GPBA has begun to cut back on the SNAIL Mail communications. I encourage everyone out there
please get your email addresses updated on your sanction cards. These Email addresses are for the
GPBA only, not for USBC to send you emails. So they stay local... We want to send you more timely
communication along with reminders of tournaments and delegate meetings and so forth.  

FYI-Preprinted sanction cards are wonderful but 90% of them do not have updated information.

Please add my email address      
                                                          Thank you,

Celebrating 75years
Parents in the Central Illinois Market: Make it fun and fit

Parents I would like to get the ball rolling on this now before the fall season begins. I know and appreciate the
football, basketball and soccer and all the other sports our children are doing in High School. And I played in those
highly promoted sports, but what about the kids and young adults that do not have that chance to participate in them
due to whatever reason. The Gpba would like to extend to the
Parents and PTAs  members of our communities
and take a huge stride towards the individual, can be team as well, BOWLING Programs for our young adults.. We
have centers that are willing to develop leagues or clubs for them to set aside 2-3 hours a week and roll the ball for
fun and exercise. These events really help with communication skills building and overcoming shyness, develop
teamwork and much more. Please reach out to any of the board members to find out more.

Feel free to email me or call the GPBA 309-633-1343
