Anytime you need to know a rule or procedure, you can always find those resouces at www.stlusbc.org on its By Laws and Rule Book page.
Links to the left will connect you to those two items that you can download and keep on hand at all times. The bylaws link is coming soon.
Particularly important is the rule book. Starting this year, the USBC will only print the rule book in even number years. The next printing and update will be in the summer of 2012.
