435 – 300 International Minute Phone Cards go to Troops!

Once again, the California bowling Writers proudly send their phone cards to troops deployed overseas. We thank them for their service and hope we bring joy into their lives in being able to communicate with family.

From 29 Palms Marine & Naval Base - 240 phone cards were distributed to the Family Readiness Officers for distribution to those who were deploying. They were very grateful to have these to send with the Marines as they left for different areas of the world. It is amazing to know that they will be able to communicate with family during their travels.

From the USO Headquarters - (45 phone cards w/inserts) VMFA-255, MAG, 31 (US NAVAL SHIP) 7 AMV (Qatar) (50 phone cards) and 379 EAMXS (Qatar/Afghanistan) - (100 phone cards)

Sincere thanks to our liaisons – Anita Neu-Fultz, Director at 29 Palms and USO Programs Manager at the USO. Each card goes to arrive by Valentine’s Day with a specially designed insert telling the recipients who CBW is.

Thanks to all who support this ongoing CBW fundraiser.

WELCOME to the California Bowling Writers on the Web!

The California Bowling Writers was formed in 1998; membership is open to all California bowling journalists, promoters and supporters of the sport of bowling. The purpose of the organization is to encourage and educate both members and non-members in communication through print, promotion and use of electronic media. At the same time, CBW will recognize and reward those who create media awareness by providing outstanding bowling photography and journalistic excellence.

The InfoLink encourages and accepts stories of 200-500 words, relating to bowling. Articles should be focused on individual accomplishments, special events, community involvement, prose, etc. Because we are focusing on special articles by our writers, reporting of scores or association related events will not be accepted.
