    2013MissionPossibleProgramLogo.jpgStrike Ten Entertainment (STE) and the International Bowling Campus Youth Development department announced the addition of three new participating partners in the Mission Possible challenge to certify 20,000 youth bowlers in 2014.

    Brunswick, Kegel and QubicaAMF will add valuable bonus prizes to the $25,000 grand prize drawing to be held during Bowl Expo in Orlando, Fla., June 22-27, 2014.

    "We're very excited about a targeted promotion like this that addresses our most pressing industry need," said Chris Chartrand, president of Kegel, adding, "We're confident this initiative will be successful, and hope our contribution provides some extra incentive for proprietors all over the country to join in to make this Mission Possible!"

    As an encouragement to participate in Mission Possible, centers who sign up and certify youth bowlers are entered to win a $20,000 cash grand prize and their local United States Bowling Congress (USBC) association, $5,000.

    Centers who sign up will be automatically entered in the grand prize drawing, and for every youth bowler they certify, they will receive additional entries. The more bowlers a center certifies, the better their chances are to win.

    "We are excited to have these three companies come on board as participating partners in this drawing," said Chad Murphy, International Bowling Campus managing director of youth development. "It not only shows the importance of the Mission Possible initiative, but it further proves the bowling industry sees the value in investing in youth bowlers."

    Mission Possible marketing kits are priced for all proprietor budgets at just $20.14 each and come with all the materials needed to market and promote the program locally such as standees, posters, counter cards and customizable sales flyers.
