What's the farthest you ever traveled to bowl in a tournament?

Did you enjoy going?

How did bowl in it?

I live in Jacksonvile, NC which is on the east coast. I've bowled in Vegas in the High Rollers and in Reno in Team USA. Also bowled in the Nationals last Year in Albuquerque and will bowl the Nationals in Reno this year. Coast to coast is the farthest I've traveled.

I live in Medford, OR and the furthest I have travelled to bowl a tournament is Paris, France. I wanted to go there, and was able to work the trip around a tournament (The Dec 94 "French open"). I had a lot of fun, but bowled [censored]. Lots of oil!

When ABCs were in Syracuse, that was the furthest I've traveled (4 1/2 hours by plane to Detroit and 8 hours through Canada and NY to Syracuse) in distance.

I still prefer Vegas and Reno for my bowling. smile

From Portland, OR to Honolulu, HI for the National Resident Pro Championships. I hate it when it's paid for. smile

It was the 1st time I'd been to Hawaii and I was in vacation mode the whole time. I bowled okay, finished 45th out of 56.

Wait, wait, wait. They PAID you to fly to Hawaii to bowl? I'm glad you finished 45th, because that meant you at least bowled.

I have a feeling I'd become a DNS if I ever bowled in Hawaii. smile

Rochester, NY to Reno is the farthest I've gone. The trip to Albuquerque took a heck of a lot longer though.

The farthest I have gone is from Burlington VT to Rochester NY for the Lilac (this is also the farthest west I have ever been!). Maybe the Hoinke this year to better my record.

The farthest I've travelled is Albuquerque NM and Reno, Nv. This year there will be a return trip to Reno for the ABC's. At least for The Lilac I'll be in my own State of New York....not that Rochester is around the corner :rolleyes:

The Farthest I've traveled is from Pa to Reno. I have done this 3 times soon to be 4. The farthest I have driven to bowl was PA to Albuquerque last year.

Wow tenten, I got tired just reading your post. I went to Misawa Japan (from Honolulu)in the early 80's for the Pacific Armed Forces Championships. Didn't bowl great - but had lot's of fun (brought back a beautiful china set).

You DROVE to Albuquerque from PA?? Wow. I'm in a suburb of Detroit, and the furthest I've gone to bowl is Los Angeles (it's further west than the National Bowling Stadium) smile I have to admit it was really nice bowling in such a warm place with those doors that opened automatically when I walked up with my bag on wheels. That's pretty much unheard of in cold climates here :\
