I would like to thank all of you for your messages, texts, and emails over the past few months since my announcement as to stepping down as Director of the N.A.T. The outpouring of support from family and friends has been tremendous, and not only from those closest to me, but those of you who have bowled with the NAT organization over the years has made ending this 10 year tenor very difficult. I have been back and forth with a few of you, rendering in my mind with a heavy heart if this is the right decision.
With that said, I have been approached by a good friend; Jackie Van Buskirk and he has asked me to PARTNER with him to create a NEW Handicap and Scratch Division tournament next year. (January/February 2017)
Jackie is a dedicated member to the Greater Boston Bowling Association and has a great resume and reputation running events and leagues as well as being on the MA. State Bowling Board.
I am looking forward to taking a few months off and working with Jackie as we will continue to give bowlers another tournament choice to bowl competitively in the area!!
As the current format of the NAT ends this weekend in Brockton, MA. with our Regular NAT Doubles, I will be running 1 or 2 Scratch Events in the final months of 2016, one being on Saturday December 10, 2016 as a part of the NAT's "Scratch Bracket Classic Series", also in Brockton, MA. The format has not yet been determined for this event, but I can say this event will be open to all USBC sanctioned bowlers and not limited to a certain number of entries as previous "SBCS" Events have been in the past.
