The Barry Gurney Memorial Laughlin Cup bowling tournament is expected to be pushed back from its scheduled June 27-29 dates and could be held in January.

The second annual scratch tournament was experiencing difficulties coming to fruition and may be repackaged as a Professional Bowlers Assn. regional event.

The event would still be held at Riverside Lanes in Laughlin, Nev., if all the details can be worked out.

Forty-three bowlers participated in the Laughlin Cup’s debut in February 2013. Amateur Jonathan Ferrell of Scottsdale, Ariz., won the tournament title with a 217-179 victory over powerful David Haynes of Las Vegas in the championship match.

The tournament’s name has been changed to honor Gurney, who died in July at age 71 after a battle with cancer. Gurney, who lived in West Hills, was one of the preeminent bowlers to come out of the San Fernando Valley.

Gurney was a four-time PBA50 Tour champion who joined the PBA Senior Tour in 1991. He was the first well-known commitment to the inaugural Laughlin Cup.

Gurney advanced past the qualifying round and won two matches en route to placing third in the event, which was held at Riverside Lanes.
