MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The U.S. Bowling Congress board is going ahead with a plan to move the organization's headquarters from Milwaukee to Arlington, Texas.

The Bowling Congress has called Milwaukee home since 1906.

The organization announced the decision Tuesday on its Web site.

The board's vote follows presentations from both cities at a meeting in Atlanta Sunday.

The USBC has made it clear for months that it wanted to move the organization and more than 200 jobs to Arlington where it would join the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America.

The groups hope to strengthen the sport by working together on youth bowling and coaching programs.

The USBC is the sport's governing body with more than 2.3 million members.
