Dear Friends of the European Bowling Family,

I unfortunately have to bring you the information that our EBF president, Addie Ophelders, has due to health issues and doctors advise decided to resign from all his responsibilities as the President of EBF with immediate effect.

We have been asked by his family to limit all communication with Addie to absolute zero for the time being, as he is medicated and resting.’

Addie was first elected as FIQ-EZ Vice President in 1985 and was then elected as President at the FIQ-EZ Congress in 1989 and has been EBF President from then.

We wish Addie speedy recovery, and we will meet him soon again.

Undersigned will be acting as Interim President until EBF Congress in October 2023

Valgeir Gudbjartsson
EBF Vice President
