There are currently 135 members in the Hall.
Deadline for nominations in the current season is April 15.

Some portion of the candidate’s record must have been established as a member of the Madison USBC Bowling Association. Achievements might include but are not be limited to local, state, or national tournament championships; multiple years of awards recognition in high score categories, etc. The most important criteria will be performance above and beyond the ordinary.
