YOUTH DIRECTOR OF THE YEAR
Tammie Meyers has been a key part of youth bowling in the Yuba Sutter area going back tto the 90’s at Yuba City Bowl. She currently runs the Youth Program at Nu Generation Lanes ad has been for almost 20 years. She single handedly spearheaded bringing scholarships to the youth programs in the early 2000’s and since then has given out over $35,000 in scholarships. Tammie coordinates all of the youth tournament dates, transportation, hotels, and even set up fundraisers to help offset cost or even to beef up the scholarship funds! Much of this was done on her personal time and many times with her own money with little to no help unless the parents and kids pitched in! Thank You Tammie!
