First of all, I think the news about Orlando is awesome. It sounds like Disney is going to go all out and build one heck of an impressive bowling stadium (100 lanes!).
Orlando and Reno are going to be locks every third year. Now, on the other side of this great news coin is the fact that only one other city every three years will be able to host the national tourney. It would be nice if it could be a midwestern-ish state that every third year. I think for a while you will see a great interest in this new set up, but after a while I'm sure several will find that it is too costly to make the long trips and maybe even start to become a little redundant going to the same cities two out of every three years.
I'm not a "nay-sayer", I'm just playing devil's advocate.
I know of people who no longer bowl in nationals now because it seems like they are always so far away.
All in all, this deal
down in Florida is a BIG deal
in the world of bowling. It is going to be impressive. I would just like to see that third year location be somewhere in the middle states (the states from Colorado to Ohio, Texas to Minnesota, for example)to keep everybody interested and coming back year after year.
Thank you USBC and let's keep 'em coming to Nationals.
