Dear Youth Bowlers, Parents, and Friends, Let me be the first to welcome you to the 2nd Staten Island USBC Association Youth Champions Dinner. Although this is the fourth dinner for our Staten Island Youth Champions, it is the second for our newly formed organization. In September of 2005 the Staten Island Y.A.B.A. and Staten Island Women’s Bowling Association dissolved their respective organizations to merge and form the Staten Island USBC Association. This new organization serves as the primary bowling membership organization for adult and youth bowlers on Staten Island. With this new organization came some changes. From a board of directors of twenty, a committee of ten, now twelve, volunteers represents the youth bowlers. Under the direction of the Staten Island USBC Association, the Youth Committee is responsible for administering youth championship tournaments, the scholarship program, youth fundraising, and this youth champion’s dinner. This committee is comprised of coaches, parents, league directors, youth bowlers, and proprietors. This amazing committee has worked together to make this past season another successful one. Just a friendly reminder… Please keep in mind all of the available opportunities that we offer our youth bowlers. This year we will be awarding over $3,000 in scholarships at this awards dinner. Most importantly over the course of the season over $100,000 in scholarships are available through numerous programs offered by our local, state, and national affiliates. In closing, I would like to extend my Congratulations to all the youth bowlers here this evening and thank all the volunteer members of the Staten Island USBC Association youth program for their continued hard work and dedication to the youth bowlers of Staten Island

Yours in Bowling,

The Man in the Arena

“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again; who knows the great enthusiams, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.”

- Theodore Roosevelt
