RENO, Nev. (AP) - The world's largest women's bowling tournament
begins a 100-day run in Reno on Saturday, an event Nevada tourism
officials say will pump an estimated $40 million into the local economy over the next 12 weeks.

It marks the sixth time the National Bowling Stadium in Reno will host the Women's Championship run by the United States Bowling Congress.

Ellen Oppenheim, president of the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority, says as many as 60,000 bowlers, family and friends are expected to visit before the tourney wraps up on July 5.

The purse for the Women's Championship is expected to exceed $2
million.
