CAN WE BRAG for a minute?
We want to give a big shout-out to the four bowling teams sponsored by Verlo Mattress of Colorado. These four teams, representing the Boulder and Longmont mattress stores, recently competed in the 2016 United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Open Championships in Reno, Nevada.
Recognized as the largest participatory sporting event in the world, the USBC tournament took place March 5th through July 10th this year. The Verlo Teams 1, 2 and 3 entered the Regular Division, in which 6,400 bowling teams competed. Team 4 ranked in the Classified Division, and finished up the the tournament in 26th Place out of 1,663 teams!
Needless to say, we’re super proud of these Verlo-sponsored teams, and of our Colorado franchisee owner, Dick Sumerfield, who supported them. One of the things we love about having a franchise system is that it keeps a local feel to everything we do, and it allows Verlo to be an active participant in the community.
In addition to the Open Championships, the Verlo Mattress teams competed last May in the USBC Colorado State Open Tournament, and will be bowling in the USBC State Senior Open Tournament in October.
Go teams! Take a much deserved rest!
