As the Bud Masters is rolling into the home stretch of another great season, Secretary Brian Davis
at Plaza tonight said they are in full roll mode/game on. Tonight at Plaza Lanes (Washington) then
to Safari Bowl (Morton) and then finishing back at Plaza to begin the roll off.

But I want to thank all of the Masters bowlers that participated on Saturday bowling with our
community youth bowlers at Landmark Lanes (Peoria)
The youth of our future is out there attempting to learn/ participate in a bit of competition amongst
friends with the help of the master bowlers. It really shows how our community cares about the
next generation...
Also Paul Lippens (Masters) and Jerry Davis (GPBA) for working together to wrap up a great

1st Place - $200 Smart Money to a youth bowler with 135 avg.. 1st 500 series...

Thank you all,
Joe Janusz GPBA President

Well its almost over....Summer is right around the corner

For some the Summer has began, for others a new season is just around the corner.
I hope everyone had a great year and cannot wait to see everyone back next year and get ready
for some more fun tournaments next year..

I remind everyone please reach out to all your secretaries and make sure they have your awards
turned in on time. We have many secretaries turninig those awards in at the end of your league
and if there is not enough to go around you risk not getting them till next year.

Also make sure all final average sheets and standings get sent into the GPBA once season is
