2012 USBC Convention activities

The 2012 USBC Convention will be held at the Sheraton of Arlington, TX, April 24-April 28. Popular events taking place that week include the USBC Queens TV Show and a bus trip to Fort Worth. This is the last week for delegates to purchase a Queens TV show ticket and VIP reception before they go on sale to the public. There is a limited quantity available so delegates should purchase now to be assured of a ticket. Those not wanting to purchase a ticket but still wishing to view the finals on TV can attend the Welcome Reception and Queens Party.

For delegates and guests interested in the bus trip to Fort Worth, there will be buses transporting delegates between Arlington and Fort Worth as well as between locations within Fort Worth. To view the different entertainment options upon arrival in Fort Worth, please go to, or click here.

Roll ‘N Grow jersey offer
All youth associations should have received a postcard recently explaining the youth jersey offer available to new Roll ‘N Grow members. New USBC Roll 'N Grow members in Roll 'N Grow leagues that start March 15 or later will have the opportunity to purchase the 2011-12 USBC Youth jersey for just $5.

The opportunity for new Roll 'N Grow league members to purchase the USBC Youth jersey is a limited-time offer that ends July 31, 2012. League coordinators will receive a form to order the jerseys or they will be able to go online to access the form to order jerseys for those members who want to purchase one.

The Roll 'N Grow membership is a relatively new membership that was created by the International Bowling Campus Youth Development Team specifically for children age 7 and under. Many children associate bowling with birthday parties, and Roll 'N Grow leagues were designed to continue the fun experience while also teaching them about the sport.

USBC members only have until the end of the month to receive a $20 rebate on the all new Storm Vivid high performance bowling ball and become eligible to win a trip to the International Bowling Campus*. Be sure to pass the savings on to your league bowlers, family and friends so that they can receive the special rebate that has been provided to USBC members from Storm Products!
