–GEUSBC BVL In-League & Roll-Off Tournament Postponed

The 2019 GEUSBC Marge Langdon BVL Tournament originally scheduled for Sat., November 16th has been postponed. Since this tournament was postponed, the BVL In-League Tournament is being postponed as well. Tentatively, both events will take place in December. More information will be out as soon as the date for the tournament is set. Check the Golden Empire USBC website ( or like them on Facebook “Golden Empire USBC” for updated information.

When the tournament date is set, the two weeks prior to it, be ready to be visited on your lanes when you bowl league for the BVL (Bowlers to Veterans Link) In-League Tournament. You can use your scores bowled that day or night in league to enter the 2019 GEUSBC BVL Tournament. The In-League Tournament is cheaper ($15) than the BVL Tournament ($30). Both options are open to league bowlers and you can enter as many times as you wish.

The BVL Tournament (both In-League and Tournament) are different as not only do you bowl in divisions based on your book but men bowl against men, women against women and the youth have their divisions and boys are against boys and girls against girls. If you don’t have a book average then your current average (with 21 games or more) will be used. Divisions are as follows for the adults:
Men: 191 & Over – Classic; 170-190 – A; 151-169 – B; 131-150 – C; 130 & under – D.
Women: 181 & Over – Classic; 166-180 – A; 151-165 – B; 136-150 – C; 121-135 – D; 120 & under – E.
Winners of each division will represent GEUSBC and bowl in the 2020 Helen Duval BVL State Classic Tournament on Sat., March 28th at Rancho Bowl in Santa Maria.

Also at the end of the In-League BVL Tournament, leagues that voted at the beginning of this season to go 100% for BVL and are donating $1, $2 or $5 per bowler, this money needs to be collected by the GEUSBC Director visiting your lanes to run the In-League Tournament.

California has been the top state for BVL contributions the last several years thanks to your donations. Today there are 3.9 million disabled vets who have come back from battle with physical and emotional disabilities and many of these men and women suffer from PTSD and need the recreational services BVL provides to help them better cope with this frightening disorder. The Veteran’s Clinic here in Bakersfield on Westwind benefits from our donations to BVL. For further information about BVL, go to

–USBC Membership Cards Coming to your Mailbox

Be on the lookout if you haven’t already received your 2019-20 USBC Membership Card from USBC in your mail. Cards are mailed to the address that was on the form in the league you paid for your card with. If you haven’t received your card by the end of this month, check with your league secretary to find out when your league’s cards were processed.

Coffee Club is on Sunday mornings at 12 noon at AMF Southwest Lanes. Cost to enter is $20 for 4 games, blind doubles draw. Optional high pots, singles, and 3-6-9. Handicapped and fun bowling with some great local bowlers! And, once a month, a No-Tap Tournament will be scheduled!!

**Strike Pot is a new game we started. It’s about purchasing raffle tickets for $5 each. During the second game we draw one ticket and that person must bowl a strike for the cash in the pot. If a strike isn’t bowled, then that person gets $10 and the amount is rolled over. If a person misses a week or more and chooses to participate for the total, they must pay $5 per week missed; if not, they only get amount raised that day if their ticket is drawn and they bowl a strike.

GET THEM WHILE THEY LAST!! Danielle Looney has created Coffee Club Tee’s!! She is selling them for $20 each and they are available in a variety of colors. You can also have your name put on them (it can be placed on the front below the logo or on the back across the shoulders) for a total cost of $25. If you would like to sport one of these, send Danielle Looney a message on Facebook and you are set!
