With only a short time to endure the remainder of winter, we can look forward to the start of our bowling season. Here are the dates of the Division tournaments: the CD Open pairs will be July 8-9 and singles August 12-13 while singles Playdowns will be July 15-16 with the pairs August 19-20. Entry forms for 2017 are on the Tournaments page, as are the requirements for Playdowns entrants. To enter in the Central Division Open, you must be a member of Bowls USA or an equivalent national organization. This page also lists other tournaments open to all Bowls USA or international players. A reminder to Central Division clubs: if your club has tournaments or other events open to out-of-towners, this information can be included on the website. Send this and any other club news to: firstname.lastname@example.org .
