In addition to promoting racial harmony through bowling, TNBA primarily serves as a kind of recruiting agency for African-American bowlers who otherwise would not receive the guidance needed to learn the game and compete successfully.
These ongoing activities lead up to the highlight of the year for many Black bowlers, TNBA's annual convention, which the organization's public relations director, Leon Puryear, describes as "a big family reunion, where bowling actually is secondary to the camaraderie.
As in previous years, the Las Vegas gathering gave bowlers from across the country the opportunity to renew friendships and, at the same time, handle TNBA's business matters such as rule changes.
As a result, the male and female winners are recognized as the top TNBA bowlers in the country.
Individual bowlers and TNBA on the whole have gained nationwide recognition, but Daniels says his mission as president is to continue to raise the level of awareness of the organization and get it more involved in community activities.
