The entry fee went up $5 to $95. All of the $5 goes towards the prize fund. Half of the increase goes directly into the prize fund standings. The other half goes towards out of money prizes. These prizes will be $50 towards a future entry based upon high games for those who did not make the cut.
Remember that the membership fee is $25 for renewals and non-members. That will be $120 for entry and membership due the first time you bowl in 2017. The membership is good for the 2017 season which is January through December. First time members are eligible for Rookie of the Year. Those who do not want to join can pay $15 to bowl as a non-member. Anyone new to NEBA or past bowlers who have not bowled in two years since 2014 can bowl as a guest only pay the entry fee.
