The new GREATER CARLYLE BOWLING ASSOCIATION
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.  An organization meeting was held on Sunday, April 15, 2018 to approve the proposed bylaws and to elect the board of directors for the the new association.  The new association will be called the Greater Carlyle USBC.
