“For us, bringing the Illinois Women's Bowling Association (IWBA) state tournament, and their 75th Diamond Jubliee celebration to the Rockford area was no easy task. It was a project that took over three years of planning and preparation. Throughout it all, the Rockford Area CVB was there for us. Their staff was always professional, willing to help and determined to make our event a success for us and for our community.”
