logo-bpaaThe Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America (BPAA) will be honoring the “Top 40 Under 40 Young Professionals” at the International Bowl Expo in Las Vegas next month.  This award represents the future of bowling as the 40 individuals selected are the brightest and most promising in the bowling industry.

We are especially proud that BCAW Vice President Erik Gialdella will be among those recognized in the Class of 2016.  As the proprietor of Revs Bowl, Bar & Grill in Oshkosh and previously the general manager of Bardon Bowling Centers’ Super Bowl in Appleton, Erik has significantly contributed to the bowling industry here in Wisconsin.

revs-1This year’s list includes 17 new and 23 returning members; Gialdella is one of the additions!  The Class of 2016 is truly a who’s who in bowling, including USBC President and proprietor Frank Wilkinson of New York, Rob Gotchall of Ebonite International, PWBA star Kelly Kulick and Andrew Cain.  Cain is a PBA and Team USA member and the immediate past president of USBC and was recently here in Wisconsin as a 900 Global staffer.

With the up and coming young people involved in the bowling industry, the future is very bright!  It is my hope that through the recognition of Erik and other young professionals, we are inspiring the next generation of leaders who will make a difference for many years to come.

The entire list of the Class of 2016 may be viewed on the BPAA website.
