We have plenty of room available on our remaining squads in the Open and Women’s tournaments. We will accept entries that are turned in at least the day before the listed squad time. Note walk-ins will still not be permitted.
Dear Coaches and Youth City Tournament Bowlers,
If you are scheduled to bowl the 2021 Grand Rapids Youth City Tournament April 10-11 and/or April 17-18, you must follow this mandate from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
MDHHS is requiring negative COVID tests for all 13-19 year old athletes. After many phone calls to government officials, we are asking this of you. Get a test from your school or local pharmacy early in the week and bring your test results with you. Tests will not be administered at the bowling center. If you do not have your negative test results with you, you will not be allowed to compete during this time frame (April 10-11 and/or April 17-18).
This does not apply to the 12 and younger bowlers.
If any of the bowlers or parents are hesitant to come to this event, please contact your Youth Coach or the Association Office (616-530-8195). Every effort will be made to re-schedule bowlers as needed, based on lane availability.
Greater Grand Rapids USBC
The preliminary results are posted for the Mixed Double’s Tournament. We’d like to thank Westgate Bowl for hosting this year’s tournament. Bid letters will be going out to proprietors for hosting next year’s tournament shortly. Be sure to return the letter to not miss out on hosting one of Grand Rapid’s most popular tournaments.
Congratulations to our winners!
City Tournament Bowlers,
Due to the challenges of this bowling season, we were not able to get the 2021 City Tournament entries out to you in the time frame we had hoped. You are still encouraged to reserve your preferred dates and squads for this year. The entry says you must have reservations paid for by March 10, 2021. We will work with you on this. You cannot be asked to do something that is practically impossible.
This has been a challenging year for everyone — professionally and personally. If we work together we can still have a successful City Tournament.
Thanks for your understanding.
The city tournament is quickly approaching. This year’s tournament will be held at Fairlanes. The available dates are listed below. NOTE!!! Opening Day March 21, will only have 1 time available at noon.
1. Currently we are asking that the bowlers not bring spectators so as to stay within the current capacity limits.
2. Bowlers will be expected to wear their masks at all times — unless drinking and/or eating.
3. We are not able to offer any evening squads this year to allow the leagues at Fairlanes to complete their seasons.
4. Printed entries will be mailed to last year’s Team Captains as soon as we have them.
The Mixed Doubles Tournament originally scheduled for January 16-17 and 23-24, 2021 is being postponed. We are working with Westgate Bowl to come up with alternate dates.
We are also working with Park Center with regards to the Seniors Tournament that was scheduled for December 2020.
If and when we have confirmed dates for these tournaments, as well as the Open, Women’s, and Youth City Tournaments, we will make that announcement.
We know that you understand how difficult it is to make plans when rules, mandates, and restrictions are ever-changing.
2020 Adult/Youth Doubles Tournament (Nov. 21-22, 2020)
2020 Seniors Tournament (Dec. 5, 6, 11 & 12, 2020)
Due to the restrictions put into place by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, these tournaments have been cancelled.
We are hoping to re-schedule these tournaments if dates can be worked out with the Proprietors.
Any entry fees that have been submitted for these tournaments will be refunded.
Due to our extended “Stay at Home” orders the board of directors has decided to cancel this year’s city tournaments. This will include the Open, Women, and Youth. We also have some updates on our banquets, scholarships, and annual meeting. Please read the attached letter for all of the updates on the remainder of the 2019-2020 season.
Complying with the newest regulations our Adult and Youth City Tournaments are postponed until further notice. With regulations and information changing hour by hour, there is a chance that the tournaments will be cancelled completely. We will update everyone as soon as we have enough information to make further decisions.
