Greater Grand Rapids USBC AssociationIssue No. 15-1
Dear Bowler, 

City Tournament bowlers, start checking your calendars to make room for your teams, doubles & singles entries.  The tournament will be running from March 14 thru April 16 at Westgate Bowl.  There will be weekday evenings and weekends available.  Start putting your teams together.  If you don't have a team, consider asking a friend or league member that might not normally bowl because no one has ever asked before!  Give them the little boost they might need to get started in tournament bowling. 
New this year - Bowlers may enter doubles twice but must change partner; Bowl singles twice and cash only once with highest score; First doubles and first singles will count towards all events; First singles and all events will earn All City points; No All City points for doubles.
Schedule will be posted on website very soon.  Once schedule is posted bowlers can start making reservations.  Follow us on Facebook for the latest updates.
