Legion of Honor

The Legion of Honor was established in 1988 to honor both the memory and the records of deceased MBA members whose commendable service and/or bowling achievements may have been dimmed by the passage of time or by the performances of more contemporary bowlers. The Madison USBC Bowling Association accords its recognition of these meritorious individuals by naming them to deserved membership in its Legion of Honor.
