This coming Saturday is the annual Fort Dodge Ford/Calisesi Chiropractic Open at Ridgewood Lanes in Fort Dodge. I currently have 82 bowlers who have reserved spots which leaves 14 spots left to fill. The 9:30 AM squad has 6 open spots, and the 2:30 PM squad has 8 openings to fill. The entry fee for this tournament is only $60.00 and it features a guaranteed top prize of $1000.00 due to the great support from the title sponsors. If you plan on bowling and have not reserved a spot, please contact me right away and I can get you added to the list.
I am also taking reservations for the GIBA Doubles coming up on February 3rd, and the Triple Elimination on February 4th. Both of those events will be held at Leisure Lanes in Davenport.
Our final tournament of this season will be the Fusion Realtors/Community 1st National Bank Open coming up on February 10 & 11
at Cadillac XBC in Waterloo. This will be the final point event as well. As part of this tournament, we will once again offer a bonus prize fund for members who have bowled at least 4 of our prior tournaments this season. This bonus prize fund has an entry fee of $20.00, and we will have $2500.00 in added prize money going into that fund. The bonus prize fund is paid out using scores from the Saturday
qualifying only and will feature at least a 1:3 payout ratio. We will also give out the final point list prizes following the completion of the tournament. We should have approximately 16 bowling balls and a couple of three ball roller bags to give out as prizes this year thanks to the tremendous support we receive from Ebonite International as our bowling equipment sponsor. The top point earner for this season will once again receive a paid entry into the USBC Masters or a $400.00 cash prize whichever they choose. The flyer for the final tournament can be seen here
Thanks for your continued support of our tournaments, and I look forward to seeing everyone over the next month as we close out another GIBA season!!
