Happy New Year 2017

12.31.16

On Behalf of the Board of Directors, we would like to wish all of our NEBA members, guests, their families, our fabulous sponsors and future NEBA members a very Happy Healthy New Year. May your strikes be plentiful, your spares exact and your splits minimal. See you next year on the lanes.


A Letter from Our President as 2016 Comes to An End

12.31.16

To All NEBA Bowlers,

I want to take a moment and wish all of our members and their loved one’s a very happy and prosperous 2017. It’s been an absolute honor to serve as NEBA’s president these past 2 years. I would argue NEBA is the best bowling association on the planet. Bowlers working hard for the bowlers to make the experience the best we can. Always looking for ways to improve and stay the course. 50 plus years and a month has not gone by where an event wasn’t held. We have incredible sponsor support and growing to enable us to do even more for our members. We do our best to diversify lane conditions throughout the year given all styles and lane preferences a chance to compete. Most importantly, in my opinion, is the fact that it’s an atmosphere where you can enjoy yourself and compete at one of the highest levels. I’ll take a line from the movie fever pitch “It’s my bowling family” as that’s what it truly feels like to me.

For so many years we all have heard the rumblings of “bowling is dead” or on a decline which may very well be true for most venues in the U.S. but not in New England. NEBA continues to be strong and in 2016 we actually had 794 individual bowlers compete at our events which is highest recorded. We have something special in the bowling world my friends and I want to thank everyone that has ever been active in either a leadership role or at the board level. A vision was created by our founders back in 1963 and has been carried forward for generations and we strive to continually improve and evolve for our members. You would think the NEBA blueprint for success would be replicated in other regions but I will say the amount of work that happens behind the scenes to plan each season and execute the way our management has for over 5 decades is astonishing.

The 2017 schedule has been posted on bowlneba.com under the events tab. Some of the highlights for 2017 include:
- 2017 will have the entry fee increased from $90.00 to $95.00 of which $2.50 will go into the prize fund and the other $2.50 will be awarded to bowlers that miss making match play. The actual distribution will be announced prior to our 1st regular scheduled event.
- With the generosity of one of our sponsors we have added a special series of events for our lady members which they will have an opportunity to earn points at 4 of our regular singles events throughout the year for a special prize fund.
- We are working toward expanding our live coverage of the final matches to include the semi- final matches as well allowing for more of our members to be showcased. In conjunction we will also be expanding our social media and marketing efforts to increase awareness of NEBA and all we have to offer the competitive bowler. Be sure to tune in to our live coverage as we had over 3K view our last event.
- We are going back to Yankee Lanes in Keene for a weekend of special events with added money and our 3rd annual golf outing.
- We also added Chicopee Lanes and Ken’s Bowl back on the schedule after many years off to accommodate our Western, MA and Eastern, NY members and to expand membership in those markets.
- The announcement of the NEBA hall of fame and a special event weekend to induct our 1st class. More details in the coming months.

We have a great season ahead of us and I want to welcome your incoming president Chris Forry. We are in great hands and to compliment Mr. Forry the entire 2016 board has volunteered to serve again in 2017. I also want to thank all of our generous sponsors, the bowling centers that host our events, our management team Becky and Dan for the great work they do and most importantly all of you our members for making NEBA such a success. We are looking forward to another record setting year in 2017.

Happy New Year to everyone,
Christopher Viale

NEBA Family Loses Honorary Member George Chikar

04.29.15

It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that honorary NEBA member George Chikar died in a car accident. George, New Britain, CT, was known by everyone who bowled NEBA regularly and also many bowlers in the Greater Central Connecticut Bowling Association since, in addition to driving all around New England at 94 years old, he drove to different centers to watch leagues bowl weekly. He always had a smile on his face and enthusiastically shared words of encouragement plus some advice for all the bowlers. I/we are not sure how many years he drove to NEBA but I recall someone telling me about 20 years ago that George has been at every NEBA he could remember. When who should throw the ceremonial first ball at the 50th Anniversary event was discussed, it was agreed upon that of all the people in NEBA history, George should throw the first ball. He was worried about bowling while using a walker and went to local centers to practice a few shots the week leading up to it. The support of the over 200 people at the ceremony and roar of the crowd when he knocked down nine pins is something anyone there won’t forget. It was recently that he shared he was starting to feel like he was growing old with health ailments slowing him down. At the NEBA last April, I engaged in a long, non-bowling conversation in which he expressed his fears that the VA nurses wanted him to move into assisted living even though he lived by himself and took care of himself. Full knowing that elderly people often “lose their voice” in the healthcare and social system, I asked him if he had family to help communicate with the nurses. He smiled, grabbed my hand and said “Becky you are my family” then looked up and down the lanes and added “and so is everyone else here.” I hope George realized he meant as much to all of us, as we meant to him. One of the NEBA members created a Facebook page “RIP George Chikar”. Please like this page and add a post. I/we plan to share this with Brenda who called him every morning to make sure he was okay and also with his family. I hope this will let all of them know how much George positively affected the lives of bowlers in New England and that he will be missed. (Written by Becky Kregling, NEBA Secretary)

IMPORTANT - The SQUAD for the OVER/UNDER Doubles squad has been MOVED LATER from 10AM TO NOON.

Late last night we emailed the 39 teams with reservations if they would rather start later or bowl with 3 teams on a pair and if they would bowl later. Half replied this morning saying they would bowl. Please pass this message along to anyone you know who is bowling and sign up if you haven't already.

Highway Construction on 84 in CT this Weekend

06.27.14

LOOK FOR ALTERNATIVE ROUTES TO NEBA THIS WEEKEND!!!

A major highway project started tonight in CT. It is state of the art construction which replaces two current highway bridges in just 2-1/2 days using replacement bridges which were built alongside the highway. This means traffic is only disrupted for one weekend instead of months. Unfortunately, it is the town Apple Valley Bowl is located and it is this weekend.

The work is at exit 30 on route 84 in Plantsville.

Most news states that interstate 84 is closed but it isn’t truly closed. The highway is broken down to one lane which is detoured off exit 30 then back on the on-ramp to bypass the construction work. Despite the one lane of traffic, the DOT is asking people to avoid driving on the highway in that area since they will do their best to keep everyone moving but there will be unavoidable delays.

The best bet would be to use a GPS with traffic to give you the best route at the time. There was little traffic back-up tonight but that will probably not be the case tomorrow when more cars are on the road.

Below are links about the project along with a map of alternative routes and webcams. We included alternative directions to Apple Valley at the end of this email. The detour routes are not that much longer (usually about five miles.

Department of Transportation I-84 SPMT Project

Information http://www.ct.gov/dot/cwp/view.asp?a=1410&q=540374

Map of Alternative Routes http://www.ct.gov/dot/lib/dot/images/iconstruction/131-194_195/detour_slides.pdf

Webcams of CT highways including Interstate 84 http://www.ct.gov/dot/cwp/view.asp?a=2354&Q=290242

Hopefully, with all the warnings they have given us in CT, people will go around the area as suggested so there is a flow to 84. I would still listen to the Department of Transportation and get off 84 prior to exit 30. Below are alternative routes.

DIRECTIONS:

Apple Valley Bowl 1304 South Main Street Plantsville, CT

From Hartford, Springfield, NH and points North, East or Northwest:

Alternative Route to avoid 84 once you get to Hartford… Take I-91 south to exit 18 (route 691W), follow 691 to exit 3 (route 10). Take a right onto route 10. In 0.3 miles keep left at the fork to stay on route 10. Center is in 0.7 miles on the left. This route only extends your drive by five miles.

Route off 84… If you choose to stay on 84 west, get off exit 32 (route 10/Queen St). Exit 32 is 3.5 miles before exit 30. Turn right onto route 10 for 3.6 miles. Turn left onto route 10/South Main Street. Center will be on right in 1.1 miles.

From New Haven, NY and points South and Southwest:

Take 95 north to 91 north or the Merritt Parkway. Do not use route 8 since it takes you to 84.

Route 1… Take the Merritt Parkway north (RT 15) to take exit 68 west (691 west) to exit 3 (route 10). Take a right off the exit onto route 10. Keep left at the fork then center will be on the left in 0.7 miles.

Route 2… Take 95 North to 91 north to exit 17 (Berlin Tpke/691/66). In one mile take exit 68 west (691 west) to exit 3 (route 10). Take a right off the exit onto route 10. Keep left at the fork then center will be on the left in 0.7 miles.

From the West:

Take 84 if no other options. Get off by exit 27 (691 East toward Meriden). Exit 27 is 1.5 miles before exit 30. Take exit 3 (route 10 toward Cheshire). Turn left onto route 10. In half a mile, keep left at the fork to stay on route 10. The center is 0.7 miles on the left.

Power Outage Does Not Affect NEBA Schedule

11.03.11

A record breaking October snow storm brought a record breaking power outage in the state of Connecticut. The host of our November singles tournament, Laurel Lanes in Plainville, was in a town which was 99% out of power for days. The NEBA Officers contacted centers looking for a backup in case we needed to move our location. This was not an easy task since most centers in that area were also out of power. Restoration for Plainville was announced as Sunday night. Luckily, the center manager, Frenchie Gilbert, called this morning to say that Laurel Lanes has power and they are looking forward to having us there this weekend. Thank you to Frenchie for keeping in close contact with us and also to the other centers who came forward to offer their center in case we needed to move.

Survey Being Taken - To Oil or Not to Oil Before Match Play

09.10.10

As most of you know, since May, we have been oiling the lanes before match play on a trail basis. This Sunday, the board votes upon making this permanent or going back to not oiling. WE WANT YOUR OPINION! The best way for us to make the right decision for NEBA is for us to hear from all the bowlers. A survey was emailed to those on the NEBA email list earlier this week. If you didn't get one, email Becky@BowlNEBA.com. All surveys must be returned by Saturday at 6PM to be counted. The agenda for the meeting is on the message board.

A DVD can be made for those who who are not on Facebook (Contact Secretary Becky Kregling). For now - It is a good start!
