I submit awards every week.  The first time I submit an uncertified name I hear from them.  They deliver the awards the next week.  Calling a deck of cards or ink pen an award is hard though.  I did have two bowlers get nice watches.

I turned 70 in December. Shot my 44th career 300 last month. Most over the years were on house shots using resin although my first two back in the 70 s were with white dots, and my last three were on sport patterns. The game has never gotten too easy for me. I don't win 95% of the tournaments I bowl.

Amazing turn-around...back when I submitted merit score awards it would take at least a month to get them, if not longer.  I honestly think our local association is simply too understaffed to provide that level of service.

From what I heard (and I have no way to verify this), our league may have sent the 300 award paperwork directly to national instead of the local association.  That's when it was determined that the league hadn't certified.  I have no idea why they may have bypassed the local association ,but writing this reply makes me realize that they must not have submitted any merit score awards before the 300s were bowled, otherwise the issue would be have been discovered much earlier.  I'm at a loss as to why the paperwork for our league was so effed up this year...if it weren't for the fact that my son only has one year left in the league at most, I'd offer to be league secretary!

We as league sec.'s have to turn in an avg. list for Jan. 1st and at the end of league.  Every bowler with any games must be on the list.  They claim it is to verify avg. for tournaments.  I say BS it is to see who has bowled and not paid the fee.  We have to pay $25 unless you certify in another assn.  Then it is $11 I think.  I don't know what kids pay we don't allow any.

Lol, I contacted the local USBC office in either late January or early February because I had forgotten about the new rule and had not turned in a mid-season average sheet for our men's league at Parkview.  He said not to worry about it, almost nobody submitted one!  I was fine with e-mailing one in to the office but one of the current local USBC officials bowls in a league at Parkview and I think he and the manager decided to put together the sheets for all the center's leagues themselves (which aren't many).

Our regular sanction fee is $21.  I know kids pay less but am not sure how much to be honest...maybe $10 or $11?
