Recreational sports are more than fun and games.
A crucial part of any recreational sports organization is good leadership, especially from those who step up to help lead their fellow competitors and make leagues run smoothly.
The Capital Area USBC Association is seeking bowlers to step up to serve on its board of directors or to run for positions with the Capital Area USBC Youth Committee, association representative Marion Boissiere said.
The Raleigh association is part of the U.S. Bowling Congress.
Candidates must be association members in good standing. The deadline for applications is May 6, and the elections will take place at the association’s annual meeting at 6:30 p.m. May 20 in a spacious bingo hall in South Raleigh. Nominations will be accepted from the floor, Boissierre said, but a credential form must be submitted for eligibility screening at least 24 hours before the election.
So, bowlers, look around you. If you know someone who would be a good leader for area bowlers, talk that person into running. Now is the time for making a difference.
