Benefits of Membership: Awards and recognition
Every bowler enjoys being recognized for their on-lane achievements, and USBC enjoys recognizing and awarding bowlers of all ages and abilities through the USBC Awards program.
You may have heard about some new changes to the Awards program for the 2011-12 season. Bowlers will now receive lapel pins based on specified pins over average series or pins over average games.
For the game award, bowlers must roll a game that is 75 or more pins over their average. To receive the series lapel pin, bowlers must bowl at least 140 pins over their average.
The new lapel pins are not the only changes for the 2011-12 season. The ring awarded to USBC members who roll a 300 game, 800 series and 900 series will have a new look. USBC also has revised the requirements for Adult Awards earned under USBC Playing Rules 51a(2) and 51b(2).
