My Dear Fellow Bowlers,
Real living is living for others!
The Philippine Senior Bowlers Assn., Inc. (PSB) cordially invites you and the members of your Association to join and play with us in our 2016 PSB Open Bowling Championships from August 27 – September 5 at Playdium Bowling Center Araneta Ave. cor Tagupo St., Quezon City.
Camaraderie and friendship are the bonds that tie the knot of our relationship in bowling. Greatly appreciated and enjoyed, we must not forget though that BOWLING is a SPORT. If we have to attract young and more bowlers or even sponsors, we must develop skilled, quality, disciplined and winning athletes in local and International competitions that we can be proud and the youth can emulate. This is the path and crusade that we at PSB are following for the past several years. We take the risk of offering our tournaments with more categories, bigger prizes and no handicapping to attract bowlers who take pride in their skills, to help develop an attitude, a culture more and above camaraderie and friendship that should be cultivated. Our tournament will not be only a test of skills and fitness but likewise an encouragement and for the development of our youth, all players and the sport itself. We have observed our National Team in their participation in this year’s Hongkong Open which was participated by 13 other countries. We have seen that we are now lagging behind Korea, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hongkong, Kuwait, and six other countries. Though we are not lacking in skills, we lack exposure to tournaments in which skills, mental toughness, discipline, physical fitness and challenging oil patterns are emphasized. In our little way, we envision our 2016 PSB OPEN tournament though it is aimed to highlight the senior bowlers, to give utmost importance to all these as we have categories for bowlers of all ages and averages – Senior Masters, Senior Classified Masters, Open Masters, Graded Masters, Associate Masters, Mixed Ladies and Youth Masters combined with challenging oil pattern and more number of games.
We are very happy to announce that for 3 years now we have been participated by senior bowlers from Korea and more will be coming this year together with non-senior players. This November, PSB members will likewise be participating in the 14th Asian Seniors Bowling Championships from November 22 to 30 in Seoul, Korea. This will be participated by senior players from Australia, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Guam, and Chinese Taipei – all members of Asian Seniors Bowling Council. We are inviting your senior bowlers to immediately inform us if they are seriously interested to play for our Philippine Seniors Team.
We are looking forward to see you and your members support and play with us. Thank you so much and may our GOD shower you always with all the blessings so that we can help and witness again the glory days of bowling in our country and likewise play and enjoy bowling for many more years.
Very respectfully yours,
Steve E. Robles
