Bowling tourney starts Saturday in MP
The Iowa State Bowling Association Annual State Bowling Tournament, which is being hosted in Mt. Pleasant and Burlington, begins on Feb. 1.
The Burlington Bowling Association, Greater Burlington Convention & Visitors Bureau, Mt. Pleasant Bowling Association and Mt. Pleasant Chamber Alliance bid in 2012 to host the 2014 Iowa State Bowling Association Annual State Bowling Tournament.
The tournament will take place over 15 weekends, February through May, at Iris Bowling Center in Mt. Pleasant and King Pins Bowling Center in Burlington.
There will be an estimated 400 participants in the community each weekend.
The last time Burlington and Mt. Pleasant hosted the tournament was in 2007 through a non-competitive bid process.
Currently, the Iowa State Bowling Association awards the tournament through a competitive bid process rather than a rotation basis.
