The tournament is open to MCBA members who have bowled at least 12 games in a sanctioned league at Galaxy this season.

There will be singles, doubles and team competition. The entry fee is $20 per bowler per event. The handicap will be 100 percent of the difference between the bowler’s average and 220.
