The Midwest Summer Classic is being held this weekend at Arnold Bowl. The tournament kicks off at noon Friday with an ADO National Qualifier. Fri night at 7 and 9 pm we have two blind draws. Then we have events all day Saturday and Sunday. All events and starting times are listed on the flyer below or on our Tournament Information page. There will be great beer and liquor prices for all players and the bowling alley grill will be serving up awesome food. There is an arcade and of course bowling so bring the entire family.
The Midwest Summer Classic is a joint venture between the MVDO and the SCDL. The goal was to alternate the tournament between a St. Louis location and a St. Charles location each year. Due to a lack of venues the tournament has been held in St. Charles for many years now. This is the first time the tournament has been on this side of the river in along time and this is the furthest South this tournament has ever been. So we need to show everyone how big and strong the MVDO is and get as many players as possible out to support this tournament. So please come out and play in this tournament, there are multiple blind draws and singles, doubles and triples events. Hope to see you all there!
Here are the results and round 2 matchups from the divisional playoffs:

If in the course of league play you encounter a situation or issue that requires assistance, here is a simple guide to follow:
Rules/Regulations issue - First, check the MVDO rules on the MVDO website - League Rules. If it is not in the league rules go to the ADO Tournament Rules on the ADO website - ADO website. If you still can't find it, ask your division rep first, reps are listed on the MVDO website - Executive Board. If you can't get your division rep, then try another Board member. If you have a complaint about a rule or regulation, it should be brought up at the preseason captains meeting and if a change is necessary, a vote of the membership will be held at the yearly election/MVDO Open in January.
Conduct/Discipline issue - First, contact your division rep, reps are listed on the MVDO website - Executive Board. If you can't get your division rep, then try another Board member.
Protests - Protests must be filed in writing to an MVDO Board member (an email will suffice). Preferably the league Vice President as they are in charge of protests. Email addresses found here - Executive Board. A $10 fee must be sent in with a protest. It will be refunded if protest is uphelp. The protest process is defined in the league rules - League Rules.
