On an annual basis the local association certifies all of the bowling centers in Southern Nevada. This involves a team of workers/volunteers ascending on the center and conducting a number of checks on each lane. Once this is done the center receives a report and has a certain amount of time to correct any deficiencies noted. If you would like to help or just watch this operation, take a look at the Certification Schedule – 2015. Next up: Virgin River(Sunday May 31 @ 7:30 a.m.)
Molly Gallagher of Reno, Nevada, and Sean Wilcox of Altamonte Springs, Florida, have been selected as the 2015 United States Bowling Congress Youth Ambassadors of the Year.
Each year, the International Bowling Congress Youth Committee selects one male and one female USBC Youth bowler for their contributions to the sport, academic achievement and community involvement. Each will receive a $1,500 scholarship and could be selected to serve on the IBC Youth Committee.
Molly Gallagher, 17, is a junior at Damonte Ranch High School in Reno and serves on the youth committee for Greater Reno Sparks USBC. She is in her third year of service on the Nevada State USBC Youth Committee.
“Receiving this award is obviously a great honor,” Gallagher said. “It shows me that perseverance and dedication really do pay off.”
She is a board member of The Peanut Patrol, a non-profit organization that creates awareness and educates people about life-threatening peanut allergies. Through the organization, she helped create and served as assistant tournament director of the Molly and Melissa’s Annual "Peanut Patrol Bowling Tournament", a fundraiser for the organization that has been held the last six years.
She also helped create, and is involved in, the Peanut Patrol Teen Club, which started a two-day youth scholarship event and a no-tap youth/adult scholarship tournament that recognizes an individual who has made an impact on youth bowling. She was the first recipient of the Nevada State USBC Above and Beyond Scholarship in 2012.
The Youth Ambassadors will receive an expenses-paid trip to the 2015 USBC Convention in Omaha, Nebraska, to receive their awards. The USBC Convention, including the awards presentation, will be live streamed on BOWL.com.
