Don't forget about the House Fees in the regionals.
What do you mean by House Fees? I am just not sure what you mean thats all.
As far as lineage, the house has to donate lineage for the event if they want an event at their location, that is one of the stipulations to taking in the PBA.
To sk8shorty01, I read you hail from (and most recently bowled in a Regional event in) Merritt Island down in Florida. In the late 1980s, the PBA National Tour held the Bowlers' Journal Florida Open at Shore Lanes for a few years, Brian Voss won there in 1989 and Robert Lawrence won his first Tour title there in 1990, both Finals were televised on ABC, was that Regional event you bowled at Shore Lanes, and if not, does that bowling center still exist, I was just wondering.
Thanks, and let's all hope the PBA goes by the way of the NHL the previous post mentions instead of going by the way of the buffalo, we all both as bowlers and bowling fans can agree that we don't want to see the latter happen to the Tour.
Yes the last Regional PBA Event I bowled was at Shore Lanes in Merritt Island. The center is still doing very well (two leagues actually fill the entire house, 40 teams each league). Shore Lanes is my home center.
