CBW Phone Card Effort Continues

The California bowing Writers will embark on their 13th year of the Phone Cards for the Troops Charity and through donor’s efforts we have now raised over $70,000 for cards.

Our phone cards will continue to be sent through the USO (from whom we get the cards) and YMCA staff at 29 Palms Marine and Naval deployment base. We are grateful to CUSBC for their BVL contribution. Cards can be sent directly to your service man or woman if you send us the address. Sincere thanks to all who send funds from 50/50’s, tournaments or just donations in the bowling centers and to all who have supported this charity.

Deadline is December 31 and a card may be sent in honor of someone, in memory of someone, or to just any service person at any time. Please make checks payable to CBW - Tina Martin, CBW Treasurer, 57 Shields Lane, Novato, CA 94947-3877

Thanks to Phone Card Contributors! The phone cards went out to the troops for Easter this year and thanks go to contributors and to USO International and 29 Palms Marine and Naval base. $5,000 was raised this year and we were grateful to CUSBC for the BVL contribution to add to our donations. Each phone card is inserted in an envelope with our specially designed card telling the troops who we are and thanking them for their service. Letters of thanks go to all contributors – thanks to our Treasurer Tina Martin.

Thanks to all who support this ongoing CBW fundraiser.

WELCOME to the California Bowling Writers on the Web!

The California Bowling Writers was formed in 1998; membership is open to all California bowling journalists, promoters and supporters of the sport of bowling. The purpose of the organization is to encourage and educate both members and non-members in communication through print, promotion and use of electronic media. At the same time, CBW will recognize and reward those who create media awareness by providing outstanding bowling photography and journalistic excellence.

The InfoLink encourages and accepts stories of 200-500 words, relating to bowling. Articles should be focused on individual accomplishments, special events, community involvement, prose, etc. Because we are focusing on special articles by our writers, reporting of scores or association related events will not be accepted.
