NEW SHORT SEASON USBC BASIC MEMBERSHIP
Bowlers competing in short-season leagues that begin March 1, 2014, or later can purchase a United States Bowling Congress membership at a reduced price.
The new USBC Adult Basic membership will be available for bowlers who compete in leagues that have 16 or fewer sessions. The membership will cost $10, not including state dues, and it provides an USBC-certified average so bowlers can compete in local, state and national tournaments.
In addition to the league having 16 or fewer sessions, the league must designate as a short-season league; the league's prize fund will be bonded. Each USBC Adult Basic membership will be good only for that league, which means if a bowler wants to participate in another short-season league, they would have to purchase another USBC Adult Basic membership.
High score achievements will be recognized and officially recorded by USBC, but awards such as rings and plaques are not included in the USBC Adult Basic membership. Members do have the option to purchase high score awards. Membership cards will not be mailed to the bowler but will be electronic only for the USBC Adult Basic membership.
Bowlers with a current Adult Standard membership would not be required to purchase a USBC Adult Basic membership to compete in a short-season league and would be eligible for honor score awards earned in the league.

2012-13 Summer Membership cards
As has been stated in past editions of the eNews, USBC is currently working on the development of a new membership system. This system is based on Microsoft Dynamics CRM, a customer relationship management software package developed by Microsoft. The first stages of this development and rollout deal with internal systems for communicating with vendors and managing data.
Due to the implementation of this new system at USBC Headquarters, we were unable to send our summer membership files to our membership card vendor until the system was completed. Because of this, members will notice delays in receiving their membership cards purchased in a summer league.
The system is now active and all summer memberships purchased between March 15 and September 1 have been sent to our vendor. Bowlers who have purchased a membership during this time frame should expect to receive their card in the coming weeks. Please understand that this is directly related to the installation of the new system with USBC and was no fault of our vendor.
A listing of the 2011-12 league averages can be found by clicking on the "Averages" button on the left. These are all the averages that were submitted to us by the league secretaries. There were a couple of leagues that were not submitted and are not included. All of the MPUSBC centers have a copy of the entire Yearbook League secretaries that want one can pick it up at the league organizational meeting from the MPUSBC Representative.
Averages can also be found on Bowl.com. On the top right, click on "Find a...". A drop box will let you make a choice to "Find a member" Click on that and it will bring up a new screen where you can enter the name of the bowler you are searching for. Be sure to enter the complete name, not nicknames. It is possible that a bowler may not have their information available on Bowl.com. This could be a result of them having checked the "omit from mailings' box on their membership card. If this is the case, the bowler needs to contact USBC Headquarters to have the box unchecked.
Summer league averages will be posted as they are received from the league secretaries. Keep in mind that a USBC rule passed by the delegates a couple of years ago now treat summer and winter the averages the same. Unless otherwise noted in tournament rules, you must your highest average, winter or summer, to enter the tournament.

By tournament rules, any tie in the 2 game double elimination finals would be decided by a one ball sudden death roll-off until the tie is broken. In this case, it determined the title. Kyle was undefeated so Lanndyn would have needed to won twice. In their match, Kyle got 7 on the fill ball giving Lanndyn a chance to strike out in the 10th frame to win. He got the first two but got 9 on the last ball. Kyle elected to go first in the roll-off and threw a strike. Lanndyn left a stubborn 10 pin to finish as runner-up. Other finalists, 3rd 4-time Masters Champion Ben Laughlin, 4th Cliff Connors, 5th Randy Cote and Brett Wolfe, 7th Jim Pratt and Ron Schloss.
