The International Bowling Campus in Arlington, Texas, hosted its first class of students since September 2019 when 23 center owners and managers attended BPAA’s School of Bowling Center Management.

Topics presented by the Bowling University instruction team included marketing, organized play, food and beverage, talent acquisition and sales.

Since the class took place prior to the President’s relaxing of mask-wearing rules, a social-distancing protocol was implemented so all attendees would feel comfortable.

“It was wonderful to have people back at the campus,” said Bart Burger, BPAA’s Director of Membership and Educational Services. “Now, we’re looking forward to the great educational lineup at Bowl Expo and a return to what bowling proprietors do best — sharing ideas with one another.” 

The School of Bowling Center Management class of 2021 consisted of:

• Jack Bickford, Broadway Lanes, Fort Edward, N.Y.
