FRED THOMPSON TO BRING LAW & ORDER TO BOWL EXPO

Former Tennessee Senator Presidential Candidate To Keynote Bowling’s Annual Convention

ARLINGTON Texas – Former U.S. Senator Fred Thompson will be the featured speaker at the International Bowl Expo (IBE09) when it meets June 21-25 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.  Mr. Thompson will deliver his remarks Wednesday evening during the bowling industry’s annual convention and trade show.

Thompson was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1994 filling the unexpired term of Al Gore.  He won re-election in 1996 for a term that ended January 3 2003.  Thompson has also made an unsuccessful run for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination until finishing third in the South Carolina Primary.

During his first Senate campaign, Thompson championed a competent and ethical federal government, the importance of self-government and lower taxes.  After his election he served as Chairman of the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee, was a member of the Finance Committee and Select Committee on intelligence.   

Before his election, Thompson served as chairman of the International Security Advisory Board at the United States Department of State, is a member of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and is a Visiting Fellow with the American Enterprise Institute specializing in national security and intelligence.  In 1973 Thompson was appointed minority counsel to Republican senators on the committee investigating the Watergate Scandal.

As an actor, Thompson has appeared in numerous movies and television programs, including No Way Out, In The Line of Fire, Die Hard II, The Hunt for Red October and in the TV series China Beach, Wiseguy and most recently as New York District Attorney Arthur Branch in the Emmy Award-winning NBC drama, Law & Order.

Thompson has been a recent fill-in on the Paul Harvey program and will host Westwood One stations' new radio program The Fred Thompson Show beginning in March.  He is a sought-after speaker not afraid to, as he calls it, "dialogue with America" about the important issues of the day.  In August, 2008 Thompson formed Fred PAC, a federal political action committee dedicated to electing men and women who share his First Principles approach to government.

Fred Thompson is a native of Lawrenceburg, Tennessee.  He received an undergraduate degree in philosophy and political science from Memphis State University and his law degree from Vanderbilt University.

The International Bowl Expo is the bowling industry’s premier annual convention and trade show featuring nearly 800 exhibits and approximately 300 companies showcasing a wide-array of products and services.  There will also be 50 seminars and workshops on the latest trends, marketing ideas, profit center opportunities, and tools to help owners, operators and managers build their businesses and spread the excitement of bowling throughout their communities. 

Sponsors who make IBE09 possible include Pepsi-Cola, the official softdrink of bowling; Anheuser-Busch; Brunswick, North Pointe Insurance Group and QubicaAMF Worldwide.

International Bowl Expo’s registration booklets will be in the mail soon.  Online registration and other information will be available on the official Bowl Expo Web site, www.BowlExpo.com; or by calling the Expo answer line: 888.649.5585.

International Bowl Expo is the premier industry event for owners and operators of bowling centers, billiard centers and pro shops worldwide.
