On April 15, 2020, the USBC announced another change in the schedule for this year’s Open Championships in Reno due to the COVID-19 safety concerns.  The nationally conducted USBC events have now been postponed until September 12, 2020.  The Forty Frame Game USA & Ladies Doubles event previously scheduled to start Friday, May 22, 2020, will follow the USBC schedule and now start Friday, September 11, 2020.  The ending date of the Open Championships is now set for November 21, 2020.  All FFG reservations for 2020 are cancelled.  You must call our tournament headquarters at (800) 837-4010 to make a new reservation for the fall time slots.

Due to the changes in the bowling format for the Open Championships, they will need more lanes.  We will be moving our tournament to another bowling center in Reno.  We are working on the details and will be making an announcement of our new location as soon as possible.  Squad times will hopefully remain the same as we originally planned of 10:00 am, 12:30 pm, 3:00 pm, 6:00 pm and 8:30 pm.  We really appreciate your continued support of The Forty Frame Game and look forward to seeing you this fall in Reno.  All of us working together can combat COVID-19 and get us back to normal as soon as possible!  Please call our tournament headquarters at (800) 837-4010 to make a reservation or if you have any questions.
