New York State Volunteer Firefighter’s Bowling Association, Inc.

 Established in 1957 the Association’s mission is to promote volunteer firefighter camaraderie through the sport of bowling by sponsoring an annual tournament for them to participate in.

Moving into the twenty-first century the mission statement has been redefined to include bowling enthusiasts in other organizations thereby creating a mix of participants who have a common thread, the love of the sport.

As the sport of bowling grows the association will take a careful look and if needed will adjust its mission statement accordingly so all those who love the sport will participate in the annual tournament and enjoy the camaraderie that the volunteer firefighters have enjoyed for many years.

Message from the President:
Welcome to all our returning bowlers and to those who are joining us for the first time, welcome to the 61st Annual New York State Volunteer Firefighters Bowling Association, Inc. Tournament. It is certainly my privilege and honor to be the President of the Association and I am looking forward to working with the Directors of the Association and you, our bowlers, to continue to make our tournament one, if not, the premiere tournament of the season. In that regards, I need all long term and new bowlers to pass the word to other bowling enthusiasts that our tournament is one of the least expensive and has a 100% prize fund return, most importantly the camaraderie among the participants is priceless.

So if you are reading this message you are already on the site, click on the upcoming tournament tab, then registration tab and download an application today. The tournament schedule for this year is filling up, but there are still times and squads available to meet your needs. Boulevard Bowl and your host fire company, Stanford Heights, promise a great time will be had by all.
Good Luck and Great Bowling
John Roberts
