I had the chance to sit down and chat with USBC Open Communications Manager Matt Cannizzaro. Matt joined me to discuss the first month of the USBC Open, and a few of the story lines early in the tournament. We discuss if the USBC would ever consider not releasing the pattern, and if bowlers can expect to bowl on different lengths of patterns now that doubles and singles are on fresh oil. We end our time discussing the many side tournaments in Reno. Don’t forget to check out the BTM and Above180.com Classic as well being held at the Grand Sierra Lanes. Rick Ramsey is running both events, you can check out the flier here or call Rick at (817)-975-1836.
