Message from the ETB-President
It is a great pleasure for me, to welcome all of you, also on behalf of my Presidium, to the 2nd edition of the EUROPEAN MEN CHAMPIONSHIPS in Vienna, Austria.

It all started in 1962 in Besançon, France when we first had the European Championships; ladies and Men then bowled together. 36 women and 72 men then travelled to France. After 11 combined Championships, we had to separate. In 2005 the Men travelled to Moscow and 161 top players participated. Now in 2007 we travel for the second time to Vienna; in 1985 180 players participated (84 women and 96 men). This year 208 men travel to Vienna to bowl for the most important titles in Europe.

The prospects for a wonderful championship are very good: an excellent centre with well experienced hosts in a wonderful country a perfect time of the year…………what is there to stop you from scoring well and from enjoying every minute of the Championships?

I take this opportunity to thank the Österreichischer Sportkeglerbund for the initiative to host the EMC 2007. I am sure that it will be a great success.

The players and their coaches I wish excellent scores and, remember, you are the best in your country, so you are a winner already. Show Europe that Bowling is a true, honest and challenging SPORT.

With regards
Addie Ophelders - President ETBF
