Additional Information

Unfortunately, the cost of bowling this year had to be increased. If bowling in the team, singles, doubles and all events – the cost will be $80 per person. Per event the cost is $24 plus a charge of $5 for insurance.

Averages that should be used for the Tournament are the final averages from any league you bowled at least 21 games. If you did not bowl last year, then a bowling sheet showing 21 games before February 28, 2023 is acceptable. Last option, if you don’t bowl in a league but have bowled in a previous Falcon Tournament, you have a Falcon Average.

On Thursday, April 27, 2023, we will be having some pre-tournament fun. We will have a “9 Pin No Tap” Singles Tournament. It will begin at 6 p.m. at Chippewa Lanes. The cost is $25 per bowler and must be paid to Janet Knauber (so that I can have prize money to pay at the Tournament). Payment for the 9 Pin No Tap Tournament must be sent to Janet Knauber, 3276 Nickelby Drive, Shelby Twp, MI 48316.

Another important question I must ask, is there any Nest or District interested in hosting the 2024 National Tournament? Please contact me if interested.

As always, if you have questions, please feel free to contact me. I can be reached at 586-933-3874 or by email at or

Hoping to see you in South Bend for an enjoyable bowling experience.
