Bradley Open bowling tournament is weekend of Jan. 7-8

The 33rd Bradley Open Tournament will be held again next year at Collins Bowling Centers-Eastland, the weekend of Jan. 7-8. The scratch singles event features a first prize of $4,000 and a paid entry to the 2013 USBC Masters Tournament.

The event has annually drawn the top bowlers from the central United States and former champions represent nine states. Several touring pros have competed in the event over the years.

This year's tournament begins on Saturday, Jan. 7, with two squads, one at 9 a.m. and one at 1 p.m. Each squad rolls five games.

The top 66 bowlers from each squad return Saturday night for five more games and the top 40 move to Sunday morning at 9 a.m. The top eight then advance to the single elimination match play.

There has not been a winner from Lexington since Danny Hensley won in 1982. The last winner from Kentucky was Tony Lambert of Louisville in 2004.

Entry fee is $200 and the field is limited to the first 264 entries. Entry forms are available at either Collins location or call Eastland at (859) 252-3429 for more information.
