GREATER CARLYLE MERGER
The USBC is forcing all local and state men, women, and youth associations to merge into one association within their jurisdiction.  As a result on August 1, 2018 the Greater Carlyle Bowling Association will be merging with the Carlyle Women's Bowling Association, the Clin-Clair Women's Association, the Salem Women's Association, the Vandalia Women's Association, and the Southwest Youth Bowling Association. All of the aforementioned associations will disband and one new association will be formed.  The officers from each association are in the process of transitioning into one association.  Nominations for new board members will be solicited soon.  An organization meeting is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, April 15, 2018 at Hi Top Bowl to form the new association.  All members from all of the aforementioned associations are allowed to vote at this meeting.  Additional information will be posted as it becomes available.
