Recognition is important to the Madison Area USBC, to bowlers, and to bowling. Your dues allows the USBC and the Madison Area USBC to celebrate your and your fellow bowler’s milestone achievements.

We always try our best on every shot. Sometimes the payoff is a new high game. Sometimes, it’s a 300. Sometimes, it’s a league game win. Sometimes, it’s a tournament win.

The USBC and the Madison Area USBC offer achievement recognition for a host of accomplishments, whether it’s a 150 game Challenge Coin or induction into the USBC National Hall of Fame.

In this era of high scoring, it eventually became impossible for the USBC to continue to award all honor scores which, at one point in time, were a pretty rare accomplishment. Still, you do get a recognition award from the USBC for your first 300 or 800. Or 900. It’s only a matter of time.

Since the demise of patches, magnets, and keychains, the Madison Area USBC has developed a local awards program so you can mark significant achievements in your bowling career. We offer Challenge Coins & Charms for game scores from 150-300, series scores from 400-800, and a number of novelty awards like the ‘30 Clean’ if you have a night with zero open frames.

We also offer a number of annual awards to recognize our top male, female, senior, and youth bowlers. We have six Bowler of the Year categories, six All City teams, two Star of the Future awards, and a Hall of Fame.

Our tournaments offer championship and titlist recognitions in over 120 categories every season, followed by an annual Dinner with the Champions to celebrate. This year we crowned champions with averages ranging from 100 to 240.
