Hall of Fame

Hall of Fame

Since 1971, the CBA has provided competition to the top amateur athletes in the Upper MIdwest. Many CBA members have gone on to bowl in international tournaments as members of TEAM USA or have joined the professional ranks on the PBA & PBA Senior Tours.

In 1993, the CBA established its Hall of Fame to recognize the outstanding career achievements of the CBA’s best bowlers under the Superior Performance category. The Hall of Fame also honors those who have contributed to the success of the organization in outstanding ways under the Meritorious Service category.

CBA Members must accumulate 200 Hall of Fame points to be eligible for the Hall of Fame for Superior Performance. The CBA Board of Directors qualifies candidates for induction in the Meritorious Service category.

Points accumulated for the Hall of Fame are a little different than points accumulated for an individual season. When going back through all the old CBA prize lists we did not know who bowled the tournament, only those who cashed. If you bowled and didn’t cash you were awarded 2 points for that tournament in that season. Those 2 points do not count for the Hall of Fame. Also, when we take more than the top 12 for the cut, 9 points are awarded for 13th through 24th places. Those places are only awarded 5 points, just as in a cashing spot, for Hall of Fame Points.

CBA Members earn Hall of Fame points as follows;

  • 10 points for a CBA title
  • 10 points for First Team All-Star
  • 10 points for Bowler of the Year
  • 5 points for Second Team All-Star
  • One point for every 10 regular CBA points earned during tournament play
