UPDATE - Tickets are still available to attend the Beat the Champs Target Score Show that will be live streamed on Thursday, January 18, at Poplar Creek Bowl, Hoffman Estates, Illinois. The doors open at 3:30, seating by 4:30 and the first ball thrown at 5:00 pm.
For the first time in the tournament's 61-year history, the contest was open to bowling centers statewide instead of the Chicagoland area only.
Event sponsor, Storm Products Inc., who is facilitating the streaming online, is responsible for bringing to the event a few of bowling's biggest stars. Jason Belmonte and Kelly Kulick will be setting the target scores for the adults and stars-in-the-making Jos Weems and Abigail Starkey will be setting scores for youth bowlers. From the FOX PBA Broadcast Team, PBA Hall of Famer Randy Pedersen will be announcing the event. All profits generated from the tournament are donated to charity, with this year's contest proceeds being directed to the Bowlers to Veterans Link, which is the official charity of both the Professional Bowlers Association and the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America.
