What if my bowling centre does not run Alberta 5 Pin Events?

In the event that your house is not running an event, you still have a chance to advance to the zone finals as each centre is guaranteed a spot for each tournament.

So if you house is not running an event, then simply contact the host shown on the posters on this website and let them know you wish to enter by supplying team members and their averages.

Dependent on entries from your centre your team could advance directly to the zone final as determined by the host committee.
