My leagues has 4 weeks left after tomorrow.  Being the Sec. Teas. I start getting ready now for the final night which is the banquet. 
Each bowler gets a data sheet and individual bowler sheet with all scores.
Each bowler gets a Financial sheet with break down of how much money was collected throughout the year.  Then the money spent.  The lineage the award money for each half winner and the over all champ.
The High series and game for teams and individual. 
Everyone in the league gets all of the above.
DOES YOUR LEAGUE HAVE THIS SORT OF THING?  I have heard of many who don't get anything which invites theft.  What about yours?

Our league run by bowlers gives an accounting, and our league run by the house does also..  I am a stickler for details and bowl with an accountant, so it works out well.

When I ran my league it was the exact same thing you do except for the financials. Only one sheet per team. Total transparency. 

My once a month league I will do the same thing except for the individual recaps. It's no tap and no one really cares about the scores.

Certified leagues are required to account for the funds while non certified aren't.
Good reason for me to certify.Quit the only league I bowled in after 3 years because
the sec did what she wanted even given herself a raise.

As secretary of my Thursday men's league, I provide each team a copy of the budget for the season during the first 3 weeks of the season.  If something in the budget should change during the season (as it did this season when we added an additional team for the 2nd half), a revised budget is handed out to each team.

At our season-ending banquet, copies of the budget are again made available so people can see exactly what prize money should be received. 

I do not hand out performance info to each bowler automatically as it's a waste of paper. If somebody wants it I'll send them a copy, but nobody has ever asked for it.

The main thing I am emphasizing is that make sure your Sec./Treas. hands out something that can be verified.  Especially if it is the house running the league.  Or if it isn't a "CERTIFIED" league.   The President of the league is supposed to get a copy of the bank statement every month to verify how much money is in the bank.

I know there will be a lot of griping at the meetings next year when the certification fee is discussed but it isn't much money in the long run so you better suck it up and be safe.

Word went around last night that sanction fees are going up $3 next year, and that it all goes to the national USBC association.  There's definitely going to be a discussion about sanctioning at our season-ending awards banquet in 3 weeks.  I'd say that right now the odds of us sanctioning next year are 50/50 at best. 

Being a very challenging hall to bowl in we don't see honor scores every year.  What we do get from the local USBC association are cheap ball point pens and 1/8" thick cork coasters for things like 275 games and 700+ series.  Given how tough the conditions are there, the bowlers deserve more.  It occurred to me last night that I probably spend more money in postage to mail in the awards applications than what the awards are actually worth.

I don't fault the local association...they're doing what they can for us with their limited resources.  I blame the national association for foisting the responsibility for the awards on local associations.  They provide less and less, and now they want a raise...it's laughable.

We'll see what happens...should prove an interesting discussion.

I bowl in one senior league that voted to un-sanction because the seniors didn't want to pay the fee, considering the USBC doesn't do jack for the bowlers.  If USBC is jacking up the fee, I imagine leagues which don't have tournament bowlers will see more of that.  The one highly competitive league I am in (and we are first place in) only a few of the bowlers care about sanctioning, because they go to Nationals.  To do that you only need to bowl in one sanctioned league to be eligible.
