See You Next Year
We had a very successful 2022 season which featured seven events. During these events we had seven different champions, three of which were first time tour winners! We expect many more of these exciting moments in our upcoming season!
The 2023 season will be comprised of seven stops. We will start our season at Pinland in March, Johnson’s in April and then a return to Southside Memorial Day Weekend. In June we will travel to Highland Bowl followed by a combined stop with the WNDA at Parkville in July and then for the first time we will be hosted by Dudek Lanes in August. The year will conclude with a combined stop with the WNDA at Suitland Labor Day Weekend.
NEW FOR 2023: Division winners will now be seeded by wins and losses first with any ties being broken by total pinfall. This change puts the emphasis on winning which is the objective of Sunday. This change will also ensure that division winners and second division winners are all being seeded based on the same criteria.
I would like to thank all of our Proprietors and their staff of all of the centers that we have visited in the past, will visit this year and will return to in the future.
I would like to thank all of our members and supporters of the DPBA.
I would like to thank the Governing Body and our Executive Director for their time and commitment to this organization. It is the combination of these working parts that enables the DPBA to continue to be successful.
If any of our members are interested in serving on the Governing Body, please reach out to your area representative or myself.
I am very pleased to serve my first term as President of the DPBA. I look forward to working with you and bowling beside you.
DPBA President, William Rigney
