Bidding for Tournaments 2019 & 2020
Only local USBC merged and BA associations are eligible to bid and host IS USBC BA tournaments. All bids submitted by non-local USBC associations (including hotel properties, CVB’s and Chamber of Commerce’s, etc.) will be discarded without exception. As effective bidding is one of the most important skills that can be developed in the bowling industry, bid requirements must be followed exactly as they are set forth in the bid packages. All incorrect or incomplete responses will be discarded without further consideration.
Please note: The Indiana State USBC BA does not have a formal policy relating to a geographical rotation of the IS USBC BA Tournaments. The final selection is made, by the Indiana State USBC BA Board of Directors, based upon the quality of bids submitted for the year in question. A contractual agreement between the IS USBC BA and all parties will finalize acceptance.
Associations may only submit a bid to be selected as the host city for the year specified. The bidding organization should understand that any bid packages submitted for future tournament dates would be discarded without exception.
Bid documents must be bound using a three-ring binder, or coil or comb binding. If odd shaped items must be included, (brochures, pamphlets, etc.) insert them into sheet protectors then bind together with the remaining documents. Bids must address each requirement, in order, as listed in Requirement to Bid and two (2) original copies of your bid must be sent to the IS USBC BA Association Manager.
The IS USBC BA Association Manager must receive a bid postmarked by a date as specified in the bid package. Any bid not postmarked by that date will be in violation of the bid procedures and will be discarded unopened.
Questions regarding bid procedures should be directed to
Dan Cappa, Association Manager, at (765) 939-8641 or Email
