“TNBA Bowler” Introduces Its NEW Editor
The TNBA “Bowler Magazine” has been a constant source of communication between the organization and the TNBA bowlers. For the past 15 years, Queen “Jan” McDaniel has been the editor of the ‘little’ magazine; and under her leadership, it takes on a new life; year after year. With submissions from the TNBA Senates, coaches and reporters; the magazine highlights accomplishments of adult and junior members, on and off the lanes. The design, layout and vibrant colors has been the magazine something TNBA members look forward to each quarter.
Queen “Jan” made the announcement at the 2015 SECM that after 15 years, she would step down as the magazine’s Editor. The news came with great sadness; but the entire organization appreciates the time, dedication and love that Jan put into this publication. As Jan puts it, ‘to love what you do and feel that it matters – how could anything be more fun? Thank you Jan!!!
Because Jan is so passionate about the “TNBA Bowler” and its continued success; she was instrumental in choosing her successor. A person that needs no introduction, Karen Collins, has accepted the appointment as the NEW Editor of “TNBA Bowler” magazine. The transition will be a smooth one.
Karen is certainly no stranger to TNBA. She is most remembered by TNBA bowlers as the Assistant to the National Director of Tournaments (NDOT), Luther Moses, from 2008 – 2012. In 2014, she was appointed as the Secretary to the NDOT; a position she still holds today. Her years of involvement in tournaments, Denver’s Junior Bowling Program, Denver Senate Secretary, and their website; compliments her Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Information Systems and Management Science; certainly makes her more than qualified to step into the role as Editor of the “TNBA Bowler”.
Going forward, please submit all articles and photos to: email@example.com; by the next deadline date of February 28, 2016 for the April issue.

Hello TNBA Members and Friends
The Western Region Tournament was held November 6-8,2015 in San Diego. Cudos to Tournament Director Karl Downs, Asst. Dir Eugene Richardson, the WRT Staff, San Diego Senate president Ron Hatcher and the San Diego Bowling Senate for putting on a great tournament. With over 300 teams, 800 singles and 400 doubles, the tournament was only limited by the number of lanes available; the weekend event was quite a success. San Diego’s weather was absolutely perfect and everyone had a wonderful time. Many thanks to Hammer and Boom Apparel for their support and to all the bowler, family and friends who participated in the weekend event. King “Rabbit” (Robert Holder – Washington DC) and Queen Amie (Gwen Amie – Las Vegas, NV), was there to greet their “Subjects”; They were wined and dined by the Western Region Senates and were showered with gifts at the Saturday Dance sponsored by the San Diego Bowing Senate. There was excitement on the lanes as the high roller stepped out to do what they do and there was even a 7-10 split pickup by one of our own (great shot Chris!!)

For TNBA bowlers, corporate sponsors and affiliates; it’s not too early to begin making plans for The National Bowling Association’s 75th Annual Championship Tournament and Convention, and all the activities that occur during TNBA Week; May 19 – 29, 2016.
One of the major highlights every TNBA Week is the National Golf Tournament. JP & SP have once again put together another enjoyable fundraising event for the avid golfer, not-so-avid golfer and spectators; who have the desire to contribute to a worthwhile cause; while having fun at the same time.
TNBA’s Junior Program & Scholarship Program (JP&SP) are the beneficiary’s from this annual event; a commitment JP&SP made to eligible TNBA youth bowlers, providing financial assistance to them and their families, in fulfilling their dream of a higher education.
The TNBA 2016 National Golf Tournament will be held on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at the beautiful Duck Creek Golf Club in Garland, Texas, during TNBA Week. It has been, and will continue to be, a day of Sportsmanship, Fellowship and Friendship; reuniting with old friends, making new friends and the pleasure of knowing that contributions will help a youth bowler attend college.
“IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD”, as the saying goes. TNBA and JP&SP has partnered with corporate sponsors, community organizations and the TNBA membership in this effort.
