Here's a tournament I'd bowl if I had unlimited vacation and funds:
The new Silverado National Open Aug. 26-29 at the National Bowling Stadium in Reno is offering a $15,000 top prize and a PBA Regional title if a PBA member wins it.
PBA’s Xtra Frame channel also will provide webcasting of the tournament, which will be conducted cooperatively by the PBA and Reno’s Tri-Properties (Eldorado Hotel/Casino, Circus Circus and Silver Legacy Resort/Casino), PBA announced in this news release.
The tournament is the first major offering from Reno’s Tri-Properties since Jim Sturm left the United States Bowling Congress to become an executive with the Tri-Properties.
The Silverado Open will feature pro-ams on Sunday, Aug. 26; qualifying on Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 27-28; and match play finals on Wednesday, Aug. 29.
The entry fee is $189; not many more details on the prize list beyond the top prize were posted.
Some details are in the flyer below.
