When possible, The Kansas City Open (KCO) will sponsor Junior Gold (JG) qualifying at each point tournament. Bowlers must show current JG membership card before each tournament. If a bowler does not have their current JG membership card, they can purchase one on the day of the tournament or during pre-registration prepay options.
A JG membership consists of bowlers who MUST:
a. Be a USBC youth standard member in good standing and maintain compliance with USBC Rule 400.
b. Purchase an additional JG membership separate from regular USBC youth standard membership.
Unless a valid card is displayed prior to each tournament, that bowler will not be allowed to bowl JG qualifying in that KCO point tournament.
• Bowler’s whose birth date is 08/01/2008 or later will participate in the U12 division. U12 JG membership fee is $10.00 and entry fee for each U12 bowler at each tournament is $25.00.
• Bowler’s whose birth date is 08/01/2005 – 07/31/2008 will participate in the U15 division. U15 JG membership fee is $30.00 and entry fee for each U15 bowler at each tournament is $37.50.
• Bowler’s whose birth date is 08/01/2002 – 07/31/2005 will participate in the U18 division. U18 JG membership fee is $30.00 and entry fee for each U18 bowler at each tournament is $50.00.
Each division are combined competitions unless able to separate by gender without turning away any bowlers. The number of spots awarded is determined the day of the tournament based on the number entries that day per division. JG is a scratch tournament and each bowler must bowl six games. KCO qualifies 1:4 ratios to entries per division. Ties that need to be decided for qualifying advancers and/or first non-qualifier spot will be decided by a 9th and 10th frame roll-off prior to KCO Stepladder final matches. The first non-qualifier above initial ratio with excess entries in each division can advance by paying funds to complete the entry fee. JG qualifier for youth, will not be held during the KCO Youth/Adult tournaments and the Invitational Scholarship tournament.
