The start of "Bowling's Most Complete Tournament" is just around the corner

The Storm National Mixed Championships is celebrating its 11th year at the world-famous National Bowling Stadium by introducing a new event as the tournament prepares to kick off August 1.

The National Mixed Championships, which is comprised of the National Mixed Tournament and Open Festival of Bowling, will feature a brand-new Open Team Event and give bowlers the opportunity to compete in a team event in both tournaments. The Open Team Event will be added to the Open Festival of Bowling and allow for any combination of men and women to compete together. This addition also will allow for an all-events prize fund to be available from each tournament.

In addition to Open Team, the Open Festival of Bowling will feature seven other events for bowlers of all ages and skill levels to compete: Open Doubles; Open Singles; Senior Doubles; Senior Singles; Six-Game Scratch Singles; Adult/Youth Doubles; Youth Singles.

The National Mixed Tournament features four traditional events: Mixed Team; Mixed Doubles; Mixed Singles; Mixed All-Events.

With the exception of the Six-Game Scratch Singles, each event in the National Mixed Tournament and Open Festival of Bowling is contested with handicap. For an additional fee, bowlers are able to use their scores for the scratch division, giving competitors the chance to pick and choose from more than 20 events while at the 78-lane “Taj Mahal of Tenpins.”

The Six-Game Scratch Singles, presented by Storm Bowling Products, is geared towards the bowler looking to put their skills to the test by bowling six games across six different lanes. Participants will be allowed to enter this event three times with the chance to cash once.

With the generosity of Storm Bowling Products and Eldorado, Silver Legacy and Circus Circus Hotel Casino, who added $40,000 to the prize fund, the 2013 National Mixed Championships will have an expected prized fund of $150,000.

The 2013 National Mixed Championships will take place August 1-4, followed by every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from August 16 through September 1. The tournament will take a break until October 4, and resume every Friday, Saturday and Sunday until the event concludes November 3.
