Just a reminder that with any extended house tournament, T&C has up to thirty (30) days to review, compile, and distribute prize checks to winners.
The 30 days starts upon the completion of the final squad for affected tournaments. All winners will receive their winnings by US Mail; therefore, it is important that we have your CORRECT ADDRESS on file. Please verify this with the tournament office prior to bowling!


Attention those of you who are signed up for the 50 & Over division currently scheduled for November 19th. At this time (11/12/17) we only have 11 people signed up. We need at least 24 bowlers. The chances of getting 13 more bowlers in a week are not good.

We are planning to reschedule this division for a later date. If you've already sent in your payment, we will either shred the check or hang onto the payment should you decide to bowl on the rescheduled date. We will contact you personally regarding this.

In the meantime, please feel free to register for the Open division on Dec. 2nd.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but would rather give you enough notice rather than just a day or two should you have other plans on the back burner.
