About Us

In February of 2004, over 350 players met to discuss the future of the event. A tournament committee was formed from players who have been regulars at the tournament for many years.  It was decided to form a partnership with High Roller to help coordinate and stage the annual event.

Since that eventful meeting, our tournament has experienced a revitalization which has resulted in a continued growth that posted a record number of team entries and bowlers in 2013.  We continue marketing our tournament to active and retired military communities with the hope of reaching all our bowling friends to join us for a fun reunion that is centered around bowling in Las Vegas.

In 2013, a new division was created for Active Duty and Vets with an Honorable Discharge to bowl together. This change is only for the Active Duty Division at Orleans, not the Retired or Senior divisions. This will accomplish the following goal immediately: We can welcome back those that supported the Active Duty division but have left the service. They have not retired so there has not been a place for them to bowl. We feel very confident that this “fix” will strengthen the division yet still provide the camaraderie and reunion atmosphere that MBC contestants have grown to look forward to!
