Holiday Tournament

The first BDN Tournament qualifying was held on January 27, 1926 with a six game block. 
The top six bowlers then advanced to an 18 game roll-off. These were bowled in 6 game
blocks over three different nights. The finals were bowled on February 5, 1926.


No BDN tournaments were held in 1931, 1932 and 1933 due to the war.
See full detailed story in the history page.

The BDN Tournament now consists of four - 5 game blocks, for an aggregate 20 game running total.
It includes 10 games of qualifying, 5 games in the semi-final cut, and another 5 games in the final cut.
The overall champion for each division is based upon their 20 game aggregate total.

A woman's division was added in 1979. A senior's Division was added in 2002.

In 2013, all three division are open to men and women. The women's was dropped to the Open Handicap
and the Senior division was also changed to be the Senior Scratch Division.

2018 saw entries surpass 100 for the first time in almost 30 years after some changes within the event. 117 to be exact.

2019 has brought back the Women's Scratch division, bringing the total divisions to four (4).

2020 almost did not happen due to the Covid-19 pandemic and shut-downs.
After two delays, it finally took place with a record 166 entries (trackable on file) over two weekends in January.
