The Original Chapter #1 of the 700 Bowling Clubs of America
In 1942, Ferdinand (Ferd) John Lipovetz created the first 700 Bowling Club of America for any and all male bowlers who had bowled a sanctioned 700 series in league or tournament play. The La Crosse, Wisconsin Chapter was the very first in America, and is now known as the 700 Bowling Club of America Chapter # 1. The club started with 48 members and 2 honorary “turnkey” members. Ferd wrote its constitution and bylaws and invented the officers and “initiation”. He designed the 700 Club with two meetings / parties a year: one with the focus being initiation and the other for business. He designed the logos for the club as well. Additionally, he helped organize the La Crosse City Bowling Association in 1941. Before his death in 1963, he oversaw the installation of over 80 - 700 Club chapters nationwide. Ferd was inducted into the La Crosse Bowling Hall of Fame in 2017.
