USA & Ladies Doubles Announcement for 2023
A number of you have already contacted us regarding our Forty Frame Game USA and Ladies Doubles events for 2023. As you know, we were not able to offer our tournament events to you in 2022. This was due to a lack of lane availability because of the after effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We have spent nearly three years working with the USBC in an effort to change our relationship. We believe this new relationship would be beneficial for the FFG and the USBC. This revised relationship would result in a much improved operation of the FFG. Unfortunately, the changes which will improve our operation cannot now be put into effect for 2023. Therefore, we have decided not to operate our FFG tournament events in 2023 in Reno, Nevada.
This is a very difficult decision for us but we believe it is the right decision. We want to operate the Forty Frame Game you Forty Framers will enjoy to the fullest and that we will be pleased and proud to present to you. We hope that time will come very soon.
Thank you for your support and loyalty.

USA & Ladies Doubles Special Announcement for 2022
I am reaching out to you to bring you up to date on our 2022 Forty Frame Game USA event scheduled for March 12 to July 17, 2022 in Las Vegas this year. The sad news is we are not going to be able to offer you our USA event this year. The happy news is we will be operating our USA event next year, 2023, in Reno.
The reasons for this decision are numerous but lane availability is the key. COVID-19 and the current Omicron virus continue to have an impact on most all of us as we move forward in the first half of 2022.
The bowling centers in Las Vegas and Reno must service their regular customer base first and foremost. The one and two week tournaments plus weekend sweepers they solicit are regular customers just like their league and open play customers. They recruit them to fill their lanes twelve months a year. After being down for two years in 2020 and 2021 with the virus, these “additional regular customers” are intending to participate in a big way in 2022. As a result, we have faced a serious problem in securing adequate lane availability for a successful tournament in 2022.
We are extremely disappointed not to offer the FFG USA this year. But we are also confident the projects we have in process will make us better than ever for your enjoyment of our game. We want to arrive in Reno in 2023 with The Forty Frame Game you have always respected and appreciated. We pledge to you our best efforts to accomplish this goal.
Thank you for your support and loyalty.
