Like Cole said, start local. Start coming out to PBA on Sundays if you can. From your posts it sounds like you are interested in progressing from rec play to tourney style, so starting at PBA regularly will help you learn and decide if that is really what you want to do.
Some people think they do until they get shot up/bunkered/spend a whole day running drills only.
So come out, introduce yourself and then see if you want to go full in and start traveling around.
