    Delphene Brands of Crete, Ill., and Janet Cleugh of Nova, Ohio, became the latest members of the 50-Year Club at the United States Bowling Congress Women's Championships.

    Brands (pictured left with USBC Women's Championships Tournament Manager Eric Pierson), a 77-year-old right-hander, made her milestone appearance at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center on May 4. She began her tournament career at the 1963 USBC Women's Championships in Memphis, Tenn., and was a Division 1 Team champion in 1972.

    "The national tournament we won is something I'll never forget," Brands said. "We've had some really wonderful trips and memories."

    "It's about the friends, the fun and the trip," Cleugh said. "That's the way it's been for the last 20 years."

    Brands and Cleugh each received a plaque and medallion to commemorate the achievement.

    Mini Tvaska of St. Petersburg, Fla., is the tournament's participation leader and is scheduled to make her 68th consecutive appearance May 20.
