PRESS RELEASE -- Creating the Difference Becomes the Title Sponsor of the UBA

Posted by Ronald Hickland on

I recently went to my first ever Underground Bowling Association (UBA) event.  I had seen some of their videos in the past and it seemed like everyone was having fun.  This is not the norm since tournament competition can be serious.
