The Corporation known as Warner Robins Bowling Association Inc, through merger are changing their name from Warner Robins Bowling Association Inc to MIDDLE GEORGIA UNITED STATES BOWLING CONGRESS ASSOCIATION, INC. This amendment was adapted on July 28th 2005, to be effective on 10 August 2005. This amendment was adapted by a vote of the board of directors and also approved by membership.
Warner Robins Bowling Association (WRBA), Warner Robins Women's Bowling Association (WRWBA) and the Warner Robins Young American Bowling Alliance (WR YABA) officially merged on 10 August 2005 to create the Middle Georgia United State Bowling Congress Association, Inc.
The Middle Georgia United States Bowling Congress held its initial meeting July 28, 2005 at 6:30 p.m. at the Centerville Lion's Clubhouse at 612 North Houston Lake Blvd, in Centerville. The meeting was open to all sanctioned bowlers. The purpose of the initial meeting was to elect officers as well as answer any questions in regard to its formation - the result of a merger between Warner Robins Bowling Association (WRBA), Warner Robins Women's Bowling Association (WRWBA) and the Warner Robins Young American Bowling Alliance (WR YABA).
During the meeting, the association accepted new by-laws, heard remarks from a number of officials including outgoing Warner Robins Bowling Association president Rick Fortin and Warner Robins Young Alliance Bowling Association president Tracy Hildenbrand.
Also nominated committee members. By ballot, Jay Taylor was selected president, Joann Harrison vice president and Tracy Hildenbrand as second vice president.
Also, Donnie Carter, Jan Carter, Jan Daniell, Kathy Welker Fuller, Valerie Jackson, Cathy Karchella, Bucky Keys, Mike Kilinski, Claude Oros, Patrick Sierak, Bob Sneed, Tommy Tomblin, Willis Ward, Ton Wilkins, Dwayne Yoder and Jimmy Yoder were elected to the 16 director positions.
Paul Hutcheson, Carrie Stella, Leon Lynn, Kevin Dimuzio and Marge Corzine were appointed youth directors.
After a question was raised and voted on regarding the YABA board members being appointed rather than voted into a position, the policy was changed. That in turn led to Paul Hutcheson, Carrie Stella, Sandy Lynn, Kevin Dimuzio and Marge Corzine being elected to the five open positions.
Also being elected was Judy Britt as the Middle Georgia USBC Association manager.
We received our Certificate of Charter from the United State Bowling Congress for the Middle Georgia USBC effective August 1, 2005.
