Maine Community: Our Thoughts & Prayers

As you are, the BPAA Board of Directors, staff and I are heartbroken over the violence in Maine, and our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, Just-in-Time Recreation’s owners and employees, and the entire community impacted by this senseless act of violence. 

Everyone expects our bowling centers to be safe, family-friendly places people can enjoy, relax, and have fun at, not a place of such an unimaginable tragedy.  

While BPAA has and will continue to offer education to proprietors to help them keep their centers as safe as possible, it is nearly impossible to be prepared for something such as these mass shootings.  

It makes me proud to be a part of this association when in times of these disastrous events, proprietors reach out wanting to help their colleagues. We will figure out the best way to assist Just-in-Time Recreation in the coming weeks as they grieve and try to process this immense loss of their friends and family.  

If your customers have concerns about the safety of your center, reassure them that their safety is your top priority. If you and your staff have completed any of the Bowling University bowling center security courses, you may want to share that with them. If you and your staff have not done any of this training, you might consider it. While this is certainly something I do not want to think about happening in my center, sadly it is what all of us are thinking about right now.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me and if you receive any requests from the media, you are welcome to direct them to us for comment.  

Thank you,
Frank DeSocio
Executive Director
