Pro Bowlers Tour making stop in the region next month

May 17, 2023

MOORHEAD (KFGO/KVRR) – For the first time in fifty years, some of the best bowlers in the world are coming to the F-M area this June.

The Professional Bowlers Association Tour is stopping by Sunset Lanes in Moorhead, Minnesota starting June 13th and organizers are looking to recruit new fans.

Players from Canada, Massachusetts, and Colorado will compete against the touring pros.

JMar Entertainment is organizing the event and says they want to change bowling’s perception by treating it like a street fair similar to the PGA tour in golf with games, beer gardens, and music.

Jay Fettig, the owner of JMar, said one of the things they’re trying to do is introduce people to a sport that they may not have otherwise thought of.

Bowlers can even participate in a Pro-Am tournament that supports the next Honor Flight.
