WTBA Technical Committee Congress Report, 2000


"In early 2000, a World Symposium was called by WTBA President PS Nathan and held in Malaysia where guest speakers addressed many perceived problems related to the 'State of Bowling'. In addition, an open forum was encouraged to allow voices from all areas of the world to debate issues they felt important to their region. Immediately after its conclusion, a Technical Committee was appointed. They met for three days to address the issues illuminated in the symposium and look for possible solutions.  

The three-days of this Technical Committee meeting were heated to say the least. Many years of frustration had been pent-up in many of the attendees and each was given a chance to voice their views. Eventually, the committee was able to roll their sleeves up and get down to work on addressing the issues raised."
