USBC GUARANTEES RIGHTS AND BENEFITS TO NEW YORK MEMBERS

The United States Bowling Congress will step in to provide direct benefits and programs as needed to ensure New York members see no disruption of services.

Earlier this year, USBC revoked the charter of the New York State USBC Bowling Association, after an audit revealed members of the NYSBA board of directors consistently failed to follow procedures designed to protect member interests and safeguard funds.

Stephen Donahue of Weedsport, N.Y., the former NYSBA manager, is charged by New York authorities with felony grand larceny in connection with this case after $274,000 was embezzled from the NYSBA.

The charter revocation should have no noticeable effect for the over 85,000 members of the NYSBA. Individual New York members remain in good standing with USBC with all rights and privileges.

"USBC wants to reassure all of its members in New York that they can still compete in tournaments and leagues, while also enjoying all of the benefits of USBC membership," USBC Chief Operating Officer Kevin Dornberger said. "USBC will also step in and make certain the 2009 New York State Tournament takes place."

USBC intends to pay all members owed money from the 2008 NYSBA State Tournament prize fund. NYSBA has filed suit against USBC in an attempt to have its charter reinstated. This action has led to a state judge issuing a temporary restraining order in the case. Payment may be delayed until the case is resolved.

"USBC does not yet have a list from the NYSBA of members who cashed in the 2008 NYSBA State Tournament," Dornberger said. "It is our intention to make sure the bowlers receive their prize checks as soon as we receive a database and prize list information."

The issues involving NYSBA do not affect members or programs of the New York State Women's Bowling Association (NYSWBA) or the New York State USBC Youth Association.
