2014-2015 Local Association Awards

The USBC will still continue to recognize the following high scores awards; 300 games, 800 and 900 series. These awards will change from being an annual award to an once-in-a-lifetime award.

The LCBA decided the traditional patches, magnets and rubber key-chains have run their course as basic awards and decided to select new items to award the bowlers of Lake County. Taking on this financial responsibility alone has never been budgeted by a local association, we hope the decision we made will show the bowler’s of Lake County we care about them being awarded for the challenges of bowling better.

The awards being honored by the LCBA for the 2014-2015 Season are;

  • 75-Pins over average Game - Light up pen.
  • 150-Pins over average Series – Oval Letter Opener.
  • 700 Series – Bottle Opener with split ring.
  • 11-In-a-row – Ceramic Coffee Mug
  • 300 Game – Glass Beer Stein

Each award will include the LCBA logo and text to recognize the achievement. Pictures of these awards are posted on the Lake County website. A new form has been created to submit these achievements to the Association Manager, the form will be made available at your local bowling center and online at:http://www.lakecountyusbc.com/recognition-awards The form will allow you to submit awards for upto four bowlers per application, awards are limited to one per category per bowler each season.

300 Games, 800 and 900 Series while awarded once-in-a-lifetime at the National level still need to be reported. League officers should still submit the dedicated 2014-2015 Adult High Score Application for these honor scores within 20 days as these will be posted in the bowlers lifetime records online at www.bowl.com.
