Hello all.

It has come to my attention that this is a good place to post information about the college tournaments throughout the year. I was involved in creating the Bearcat Classic in Cincinnati when I bowled for them and this is the first year that I will be the tournament director. We currently have over 50 men's and women's teams that have given us verbal confirmations for the 14th Annual Storm Hoinke Bearcat Classic, January 12th - 13th, 2013 in Cincinnati, OH. There will be a prize fund from the sponsors that we have acquired and we will build upon this in the future. There is also a large High School tournament on January 11th at the same bowling center (S&S Western Bowl).

I have created a Facebook event page: http://www.facebook.com/events/490555407623398/?ref=ts&fref=ts
