    The USBC Open Championships VIP package includes several gifts, discounts and other features combined into one great deal that can be purchased exclusively on for just $199.95. It is perfect as a holiday gift or a special opportunity for a veteran competitor looking to enhance the tournament experience.

    Because certain portions of the program must be scheduled, bowlers are required to purchase their VIP memberships at least 30 days prior to their dates of competition in Baton Rouge.

    "The Open Championships experience already is unique and exciting for our bowlers, but we're hoping to make the 2012 event even more memorable with our VIP package," said Kevin Terry, USBC's Managing Director of Marketing and Membership.

    "We've combined all the best things from the tournament into one great package and added some special gifts and value for our most dedicated bowlers."
