Updates for 2023-2024 Season

This year we will be restructuring our Flight Series to streamline our processes and better serve our bowling community. All of our tournaments will be conducted as one region. We have also decided to eliminate the point system and focus on each tournament as a stand alone separate event. This will allow us to focus on getting results posted to the website and submit the results to SMART and USBC in a timely manner. We look forward to your continued support of our Flight Series.

We will continue with the Wheel of Fortune Scholarship Jackpot. This year we will add $2 per bowler and guarantee the minimum amount will be $100. If there are multiple tournaments on the same day with winners, the initial pot will be split with $2 per entry going to each event.

We have confirmed that the “Average Jim Award” will continue this season. The “Average Jim Award” goes to the bowler that finishes in the middle of the standings. The award is named after Jim O’Reilly from Wabasha for everything he does for bowling over the years. It is a spin off from the “Average Joe” saying. We all think that Jim is definitely not “average”, but that’s how he likes to think of himself! In fact, he is so selfless, he funds this award himself! Thank you Jim O’Reilly for all the “not so average things” you do for bowling!
