It would be nice to have more tournaments a little further west. Why are there no tournaments in NY State?

NY is not part of New England, and the only advantage would be drawing from NJ and such where as the large group of us from RI, eastern MA, and those other states up there would have an incredibly long drive. Personally I feel it makes more sense to keep them centrally located to ease the trip for the bowlers who make every event.

NYC/Long Island are not part of New England.. however geographically \"Upstate\" NY near the Mass./Ct borders could be considered part of New England (ie a bowling center 5-10 miles from those states borders).

Since its inception in 1963, NEBA tournaments have only been held in New England states. Things have changed over the years (i.e. Years back, only those who resided in New England were allowed to compete). While the topic of leaving New England has come up, it hasn't generated much discussion in the 10-15 years I have been involved with the association. We went to Ken's Bowl in Pittsfield, MA with the hope to give those in the Albany area of NY the chance to compete. We didn't receive much support from bowlers in that area so it simply made the drive longer for most of our \"regular\" members.

Every year, bid sheets are sent to all bowling centers in New England. In order to host a full-field singles, doubles or non-champions tournament, a center must have at least 40 lanes. Centers with less lanes can host the Point Leader Invitational (26+ lanes) and possibly the Masters (32+ lanes). Norwich Ten Pin is the only center in the southeastern Connecticut that showed interest in hosting NEBA by submitting a bid sheet. Their extensive renovations included removing eight lanes so as a 32 lane center, they can only host certain special tournaments.

All bylaw and major rule changes are voted upon at the annual meeting in December. The deadline to submit items is early November.
