On March 17, 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 May 23, 2020.  The Forty Frame Game USA & Ladies Doubles event previously scheduled to start Friday, May 1, 2020, will follow the USBC schedule and now start Friday, May 22, 2020.  The ending date of the Open Championships is now set for August 29, 2020 and even this date could be changed to a later date if the requests from bowlers warrants such a change.  If you have a reservation for a date prior to May 22, 2020, it is cancelled and you must call and make a new reservation.  We will continue to make announcements as they become available.

All of us working together can hopefully combat COVID-19 and get us back to normal as soon as possible!  Please call our corporate office at (800) 837-4010 if you have any questions.
