As tournament season rolls into full swing, replacing a lost membership card or checking a bowler's average is common and bowl.com is where to go to solve either need.
USBC's award-winning Web site makes it easy to print out a new membership card or check out a member's official average.
Need to replace a lost membership card? Just follow these steps:
At the top left hand side of bowl.com's front page, click on the double gray arrows next to "Find a Member."
This will take you to the search page where you have two options to search either by the bowler's name or ID number.
Once you have entered the required information and clicked on the 'Go' arrows, it will take you to the Member page.
Click on the icon located at the top of this page which reads, "Reprint Card."
If you have Adobe Reader already installed, simply click on the "Continue" button or click on the link to install Adobe Reader first.
Print the replacement card which is official and must be accepted by tournament management whether it is in color or black and white.
To obtain the bowler's USBC recognized average (book average), follow steps 1-3 as above, then go to "Print Averages" for the previous season's average or to "Leagues/Averages" tab for averages from additional past seasons.
Because tournaments can have different entering average rules, be to check what each tournament requires.
