Bowling Proprietors' Association of America (BPAA) is proud to announce the recipients of the 2016 Bowling Industry Service Awards, the most prestigious awards presented by the bowling industry.

Rick Goins (College Bowl, Texarkana, Texas) will receive the coveted V. A. Wapensky Award, named after BPAA's long-time chief executive officer, "Chief" Wapensky.  Mr. Goins is being recognized for his leadership in rejuvenating the Southwest Region and his enthusiasm for the sport of bowling as well as his support and service to the BPAA on local, state and national levels.

Lynda Barnes (Double Oak, Texas) is being recognized with the Dick Weber Bowling Ambassador Award, named after the legendary bowling icon, recognizing her many contributions to the game and sport of bowling, both on and off the lanes.

The Greater San Antonio USBC Association will be recognized at the USBC Convention and at Bowl Expo with the BPAA USBC Association Award which is presented to a local USBC association who has demonstrated a high degree of cooperation with their local BPAA proprietor group. The relationship between BPAA and local USBC associations is critical since local associations represent the ‘consumer’ and BPAA member centers are the ‘playing fields’ for bowling.  The BPAA appreciates the local USBC associations which work well with member centers and acknowledges exemplary relationships.

Special thanks to our Membership Directory Sponsors - Bill Taylor And Associates
