The United States Bowling Congress (USBC) is leaving Greendale for Texas, so that it can be next to the Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America (BPAA).

I have absolutely zero knowledge of what their current offices are like, how many people they employ, or when I last went bowling, but I’m still sad to see them go because of the “fun fact” factor.

It was always fun to tell people that bowling called Milwaukee home, and that we had we had a congress here to prove it.

Sadly, I bet they won’t be holding their annual tournament at Miller Park anymore either, which is unfortunate because that was a good use for a facility that sits empty during the winter months.

Anyway, back to news about urban Milwaukee.
