    Default Iowa tournaments

    I have been searching for a web site to list all of the events in Iowa. Haven't had much luck except for the Greater Iowa stuff but they only list their events. It would be nice to have a comprehensive list of all events (Handicap, scratch, team, doubles) in the state. As it is you go to a bowling centers web site and even here in the Des Moines area they aren't the best at keeping that info up to date. I suggest we pool resources and post anything we hear of on this forum.

    First place to start is the Bowling News newspapers at your local center. They have a ton of local/state tournament information.

    Then you can check out:

    - your local USBC
    - state USBC
    - TNBA (The National Bowling Assoctiation)
    - ABT (Amateur Bowling Tournaments)
    - abta (Amateur Bowlers Tournament Association)
    - PBA regional tournaments (if you're ready!)
    In Bag: (: .) Motiv Trident Odyssey; (: .) Hammer Scorpion Sting; (: .) Pyramid Force Pearl; (: .) Brunswick Rhino Gold; (: .) Ebonite Maxim
    USBC#: 8259-59071; USBC Sanctioned Average = 183; Lifetime Average = 171;
    Ball Speed: 13.6mph; Rev. Rate: 240rpm || High Game (sanc.) = 300 (268); High Series (sanc.) = 725 (689); Clean Games: 177

    Smokey this is not 'Nam', this is bowling. There are rules. Proud two-time winner of a weekly ball give-away!
