Speaking as a proprietor and BPAA member I am shocked and outraged by the BPAA's and PBA's attitude and lack of support of the PWBA.

At every opportunity the bowling industry should act unified and supportive of each other instead of creating situations like this that lead to disunion. Furthermore, for it to have even been considered that the women should bowl in such an unequal tournament is an insult to all women everywhere.

Think about it in these terms, if the Men were all white and the Women were all African Americans I believe the BPAA/PBA would not even have considered making the same offer to the African Americans. Not only because it would be blatant discrimination but also racism. All bowlers need to be just as outraged as if that's what was done. It's 2001 and there are should be no excuses for sexism just as there are no excuses for racism.

P.S. I will not be renewing my BPAA membership because of this unless the BPAA/PBA should make proper amends to the PWBA and its members.
