    IBMHOF News

    Bowling groups and sponsors solidly behind IBMHF effort

    2012IBMHOFXtravaganzaBanner.jpg201IBMHOFLogo.jpg Qualifying is underway in bowling centers across the nation for the newest national bowling event, the Xtravaganza, presented by the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame and supported by all of the major industry groups, and many sponsors.

    The goal is to provide an annual major fund raising event for the IBMHF, create business for bowling centers and provide a fantastic Vegas vacation filled with fun and competition for bowlers everywhere.

    As the event gets rolling, bowlers can look for promotional posters, flyers and other information in participating BPAA centers. The Bowling Proprietors' Association of America and the United States Bowling Congress share a building in Arlington, Texas with the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame, and they all have the same goal of building the sport and business of bowling.

    "Any event that helps our Hall of Fame is great for bowling, and we are behind it 100%," said Steve Johnson, Executive Director of BPAA. "We encourage all of our member centers to get on board to make the Xtravangaza a special event that will become an annual tradition."

    Joining USBC and BPAA on the Xtravaganza promotions team are industry sponsors Station Casinos Lanes of Las Vegas, Jack Link's Beef Jerky and Musselman's Applesause. The host center for the national finals will be Red Rock Lanes, one of 18 Station properties in Las Vegas. The photo shows Red Rock Hotel and Casino.

    The Xtravaganza is a new annual bowling event designed for BPAA member centers across the globe to benefit the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame. Local champions will win paid vacations to the fabulous Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas where they will compete in the finals for an additional $25,000 in prizes May 31 - June 3, 2012.
