  1. My son’s scores are not showing up in the scratch division for some reason and our team officials said that are group should have been in scratch events.
    He bowled the last weekend in June.

    • I announced at the tournament in Week 2 that I was in Las Vegas for the week at the Nationals. I didn’t return to Virginia until June3 to conduct Week 3 of the tournament. It was a delay as I had to post scores from Week 2 and Week 3. Sorry for any inconvenience.

      • When will the official standings for the Open be updated and when the cash prize be presented and sent out?

  2. Why doesn’t the house re-oil the lanes after shifts? Meaning after the morning teams bowl, why wouldn’t the afternoon teams get the same shot instead of bowling on a burnt out lane? Where is the fairness?

    • We cannot reoil because of the time limitations. We also have many different oiling machines between all of the different centers that we use to conduct our tournaments and the centers cannot all oil in the same time frame. Everyone has the availability to have fresh oil by scheduling the first shift of the day. Anything after first squad should assume that they will be on the burn. The entry form also is clearly marked that our tournaments do not oil after each squad.

  3. how do we enter for april 23, 2022 staunton va tournament. we live in wv and my sons have a jumior gold memebership. does this work for qualifying for junior gold 2022

    • The bowlers need to show up, register, pay the entry fee and bowl the day of the tournament. This is a qualifier so yes it counts toward 2022.

  6. Hi,
    I do not see my scratch score for the 2017 VSUSBC Women Championship. Please advise. Thank you.

  7. When will the/or have they already been? 2017 65th edition of the VA State bowling tourney sites be announced? Hoping to see it finally return to Northern VA.

    • Your comment has been forwarded to the VA State Association Manager for an updated list for posting on the website. Locations for the next year’s tournament are always announced during opening remarks at the start of each tournament squad.

  8. Do you have historical information archived dating back to the period of 1972-1994? I’m doing some research on the former VA BA and need some help on finding some information on state tournament standings, 300 games and the old VA State All Star Team Award (for the top five averages in the state).

  9. Not sure if this is the correct forum but here we go. I have been on my local associations website(Tidewater) and they don’t keep the site current. I was looking for an entry form for our local city tournament and the only thing available was 2014. It was my understanding that a portion of the sanction fees we pay yearly goes to the local association to maintain an office and provide local bowlers with the latest information. Help!

    Sincerely Mike

  10. Hello Russell
    I have looked into the records and I see nothing there for any three person teams. It appears that three person team records isn’t something that the State has ever recorded. I am sorry that I couldn’t help with the information that you seek.

  11. Hello Russell
    I will have to look back at the records. I’m not really sure that we will have a three man team single game record, but I will check . I will try and have the information for you this week.

    • Your inquiry has been forwarded to the VA State USBC Association Manager and the Seniors Tournament Manager for comment. The only standings received for posting on the website so far has been the actual full standings list with no money listed.
