The ABC, the national governing body for tenpin bowling, had its membership drop to 2,922,829 during the 1990-91 season, down from 3,036,907 -- a loss of 3.7 percent -- from the 1989-90 season.Darold Dobs, ABC executive director, attributes this decline to several factors: the loss of 121 bowling centers, the loss of 32 local bowling associations and general overall decline in the nation's economy."We are not pleased with our continuing membership decline, however it is the lowest in the last three seasons," Dobs said.
