The WCST will stop at Buena Lanes on Aug. 16, according to a recently released schedule. There will be 12 WCST tournaments in 2014 – six in Southern California and six in Nevada. Sixteen WCST tournaments are being held this year.
Buena Lanes was used as an annual WCST tournament site from 2001 to 2010. The Ventura bowling center was left off the WCST schedule in 2011 and was scratched from the schedule last year after originally appearing as a tournament site.
The WCST staged two tournaments in the San Fernando Valley area in 2012 – at Mission Hills Bowl and Valencia Lanes in Newhall. But both Valley centers were dropped from the WCST schedule this year and there are no Valley bowling houses on the WCST schedule in 2014.
Dick Sanders, the owner and tournament director of the WCST, last year cited a lack of interest in tournament bowling in the Valley for scrapping all Valley sites for 2013.
“One time the Valley had the biggest [WCST] entries anywhere,” Sanders lamented.
The WCST’s 2013 season will continue Oct. 5 in Diamond Bar for bowlers 60 and older.
