2005 American Zone Ranking Tournaments - North Region

  January 28, 2005

In October 2004, the American Zone announced a new format for 2005 Ranking. The zone would be divided into three regions North, Central and Caribbean and South.  The North Region includes Canada, Mexico and USA.  Hazel McLeary, Canada, coordinator for the region has announced 11 Ranking Events which will be open to bowlers in this region. Please note that the list of tournaments in Mexico is not available and will be published later.  Additional events in Canada and USA may also be added at a later date. The American Zone Championships as well as the National Championships of the three countries in the region will be eligible for ranking points for the participants. 
  • Points will be awarded based on the finish among those players (men and women separately) who have paid
    the $25 ranking fee.
  • Players may compete in as many events as they wish in the North or any other region.
  • Points earned in another region will be added to points earned in their own region
  • The top 16 men and 16 women in each region with the highest point total will be eligible for the final ranking tournament that will be held in December 2005 at a site to be determined.  The 8 men and 8 women who will represent the American Zone at the World Ranking Tournament will be selected from this event. The World Ranking Masters includes the top 8 ranking men and women from the three zones, who will bowl for a separate
    prize fund. The 2006 WRM will be held in Kuwait.
