January 2021 Kegel/ISBPA Tournaments Cancelled

We regret to inform you that the Kegel/ISBPA Specto Classic and the Kegel/ISBPA Built for Bowling Classic tournaments scheduled for Jan. 16-17, 2021 at Stardust Bowl have been cancelled.  Illinois bowling centers have been closed for a second time beginning Nov. 20, 2020 and Governor J.B. Pritzker has not indicated when Tier 3 Mitigation Restrictions will be lifted, so we had no other choice at this time but to cancel the events.

ISBPA will begin providing entry refunds shortly.  We wish you and your teams good luck throughout the 2021 collegiate bowling season and we look forward to seeing you back on the lanes at Stardust Bowl in January 2022!



This year's tournaments (two separate Tier 2 events on each day, maximum 40 teams per event) will be much different than any previous events we have conducted. 

You can view /download a copy of the tournament entry brochure here - it includes all of the format changes necessary to comply with the State of Illinois Covid-19 mitigation restrictions such as capacity, social distancing and cleaning measures needed to comply. We anticipate the event will fill quickly due to a limit of 40 teams total per event. 

There will be two squads each day limited to 20 teams each squad; Men's and Women's teams will be assigned to and compete within a single squad. The "A" SQUAD and "B" SQUAD will be limited to 20 teams each per squad, on a first-come first-served assignment basis. 

Current Squad Rosters as of 12/24/20 for each tournament:
Kegel/ISBPA Specto Classic
Kegel/ISBPA Built for Bowling Classic

Current Squad Satus for each event as of  12/24/20:
Saturday,  Jan. 16, 2021 - Specto Collegiate Classic: A Squad- FULL;  B Squad- FULL - Waitlist Available
Sunday, Jan. 17, 2021 - Built for Bowling Midwest Classic: - A Squad- 1 team;  B Squad- 1 team

Several key adjustments have been made to the tournament regarding Covid-19 mitigation restrictions from the State of Illinois' guidelines, such as occupancy/capacity, social distancing measures & environmental cleaning protocols. Teams are allowed up to 8 rostered players and 2 coaches. All participants will be provided tournament credentials and they must always be visible. NO SPECTATORS ARE PERMITTED - No Exceptions. This Policy WILL BE STRICTLY Enforced!  In-order to socially distance the teams- there will be only one (1) team on a pair of lanes. Teams will be restricted to utilize the odd lane for their group's members, leaving one lane of distance between each team. The Baker set will be bowled at the opposite end of the center. Teams will move directly to their assigned pair of lanes & bowl unopposed. Following a 15-minute practice session, the first 8 Baker games will be bowled on the odd numbered lane & games 9-16 will be bowled on the even lane. 

$200 entry fee per tournament, per team entry. Entries will be confirmed when full payment is received -- University Check, Cashiers Checks and money orders should be made payable to ISBPA.  PAYMENT BY CREDIT CARD IS ALSO AVAILABLE & HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.  For secure & immediate entry confirmation contact Connie at (847) 982-1305, extension 2.

The event will utilize Kegel's Sport Patterns. Team & Baker sets will each have a different sport pattern, and each tournament will feature its own lane patterns. All Kegel Sport Series oil patterns are USBC Sport Bowling compliant, which adhere to ratios of 3:1 or less. The Tournament Lane Patterns will be announced January 4, 2021 on the Illinois State BPA Collegiate Tournament Web page.
