2014 Stop Tour News from DPBA President Todd Turcotte

There will be 8 stops this year. Entry fee will remain $125 to allow for 30 qualifiers at 100 entries. With the exciting bracket format at all 8 stops. Copy of the bracket layout will be soon to follow. The final 2 stops are just awaiting the date confirmation, but there are stops to bowl at. There was much conversation about returning to the 24 qualifier format with 100 entries and going back to a $105 entry fee. However, many feel that the more qualifier format is better. I am always open to more conversation on that topic.

A Moment in Time...

A classic DPBA final match - John Gorman vs. Wes O'Donnell. John Gorman comes from behind to throw some unbelievable strikes to win the game.
