Has anybody else noticed that Chris Barnes bowled in the Kansas Bowling
Associations Tournament. 2nd in All Events. I'll have to read the rules
before I bowl in the tournament again. He's the only pro I see listed in
the cashers (unless you count his wife who bowled doubles with him).

If you were to check bowl.com and looked up Chris Barnes you would see
that he was sanctioned in Denton County (TX) and Louisville (KY). If
you looked at his honor score list, he's done most of his bowling in
Wichita and was probably going back to bowl with friends and family,
and as Michael said he probably just had to pay local association fees.
He's going to bowl scratch anyways, since he did book 240 the previous
year. I've bowled against many of our local 'regional' pros and welcome
the challenge to compete and, on occassion, beat them.

Residency may or may not be required. For example, I live on the border
of NJ and PA. If I choose to I could bowl a league in each state and
participate in each state's tournament and various association
activities. That would require that I bowl more than three games a week
so I haven't bothered.

The funny part is it looks like Barnes is back to finishing second. I
hope this doesn't screw with his head.

The only thing that most associations require may be that you pay local
association dues. I have bowled in several state tournaments for different
states and that was all that was required. I bowl scratch in most
tournaments and most tournament directors I have dealt with did not require
average verification unless the tournament had multiple divisions. In the
case of multiple divisions, I bowled the ones with the most difficulty,
usually division A or 1.

If he's sanctioned in Kansas he can bowl Kansas tournaments. Many Pro
bowlers join leagues in the off season. Did you notice The Masters and The
Queens are in the Nationals where Average Joe/Joan Bowler compete against
the Pros also?

I'm sure this is just a pathetic wussy troll but I had to comment that
I hope someday I'm so dang good that other players go cry to their
mommies when I show up to bowl a tournament. That would be friggin'
sweet.

To be fair, Chris Barnes is a resident of Texas, which would usually mean
that a "state" bowling tournament from another state would not let him
bowl. But, he also went to school in Kansas, so he might still be a member
of an association there.

Otherwise, it would be kind of a sleazy thing to do for a pro: to join
the association just to be able to bowl in state/city tournaments.
