Coming off a tough tournament schedule including the LBA City, 700/800 and State Tournaments, LBA squads are gearing up for the USBC National Championships Tournament in Baton Rouge. Bowlers from The Lorain USBC Bowling Association are always well represented at the national tournament; fielding one of the Top Squads in the Country.
The PBA returns to Lorain on May 18 as Rebmans Rec plays host to the PBA Baldo Campana Central Region Open. Many PBA pros will be on hand taking aim at this coveted Regional title.

Contact PBA member and local PBA affiliate and organizer Rick Zakrajsek for more info. Entry forms are out at all local centers as well.
