Details and explanation of costs to join the Montana Bowling Proprietors Association

Any bowling center in Montana can become a member of the Montana Bowling Proprietors Association (MBPA). Membership in the MBPA automatically includes membership in our parent organization, the Bowling Proprietors Association of America (BPAA). Membership dues are paid annually on a calendar-year basis. Dues paid after April 1st can be pro-rated providing the center is not an existing member in an unpaid status. Membership dues must be paid by January 10th to receive the $2.00 per lane discount offered by the BPAA. Dues can be paid directly to the BPAA by check or credit card or can be sent to the Executive Director of the MBPA (checks only).

If paid by January 10th, the cost of membership is as follows:

                              $ 27.00 per lane (BPAA portion)

                                 20.00 per lane (Montana portion)

                Total = $ 47.00 per lane

Membership dues paid after January 10th will be at $49.00 per lane.

If paying directly to the BPAA, call 800-343-1329 and ask for Membership.

If paying to the MBPA, call (406) 252-3220 and ask for Tom Brendgord.
