As an association we have gone through quite a few changes, and we need to come together as a ‘community’ and take the sport we love to the next level.
New rules starting with the 2018-2019 season
The USBC Board of Directors removed the requirement of a physician’s statement when requesting permission to use special equipment (Rule 4c). The delegates adopted three changes to tournament rules, each effective as of Aug. 1, 2018:
1. All tournament managers must be members of USBC (Rule 303)
2. Tournaments no longer are required to use printed average books (Rule 319a)
3. Tournament management may adopt a rule to allow teams bowling alone to set pace (Rule 325)
