    We are headed towards the end of season.  Reminder that in order for a bowler to be elligibe for our end of season torunamnet, they must have participated in 4 regular season tournaments.   


    So far this season we have qualified 16 bowlers to Junior Gold in Detroit Michigan ane we have added $3,825 to SMART.  The funds came from entries, SSJBA funds and special sponsors.  Greg and Don Dupree donated $450 towards the Don Dupree Sr Challenge and Charlie Saunders' family donated $600 for the prize fund at Stop 6.

  • Our 44th season!!!
  • SSJBA is once again adapting.  We are going to see many changes  starting in the new season.
  • For now, we will move to 9 reglar season tournaments and a Super Bowl.
  • The season will start September 9th in Montgomery, Alabama and be on the second Saturday of the month.
  • We will become an automatic Junior Gold qualifier which means it is no longer an optional event. It also means our entry cost is increasing.
  • Stay tuned for more exciting changes!
  • A must read, The Creation of SSBA can be found under the About folder.
  • I hope to get some insight from other bowlers and directors on our history.  
  • REMINDER: The best way to contact me (Ed Bakle) is call or text (850) 582-4877.  Email edbakle@outlook.com is good but Facebook messanger for some reason, is a challenge and should be avoided.
