On behalf of the entire Palm Springs Desert Invitational Classic Committee, we would like to invite you to come to Palm Springs for our 9th annual GLBT bowling tournament. Our dates for this year 2014 are Friday October 17th, through Sunday October 19th. We will have 2 shifts again this year. (Early or late), and we will start the weekend out on Thursday night October 16th with a fun 9-pin no tap tournament at 7:30 pm. The No-Tap is a fun tournament to help you get the feel of the lanes and costs $30 to enter with 2 divisions. Last years prize fund was over $1,000.00, so join in the fun! Our schedule for the main tournament is as follows:
- EARLY SHIFT: Friday – Oct-17 @ 6pm & Saturday – Oct-18 @ 9am
- LATE SHIFT: Friday – Oct-17 @ 10pm & Saturday – Oct-18 @ 4pm

For Scratch Masters this year we retain the same 4 divisions, they are:
The host hotel for this year’s tournament is again the beautiful Desert Princess Resort in Cathedral City, CA. It’s located just 2.5 straight (or gaily forward), north of the bowling center, on Landau Boulevard. It has spectacular views of Mount San Jacinto and the adjacent mountain range. The resort’s amenities include: valet parking, in-room wireless high speed internet access, coffee, refrigerator, HBO movie channel, daily newspaper, local telephone calls, 800# and credit card access, shuttle service to/from Palm Springs International Airport, downtown Palm Springs shuttle service drop-off and admittance to their fitness room. This year’s awards banquet will also be held at the Desert Princess, as will our famous hospitality suite. So again, plan on coming to Palm Springs on Thursday October 16th for our 9 pin no tap tournament to kick off a great weekend of fun and relaxation. Take a ride on the world famous Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, or a leisure stroll down either Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs, or El Paseo in Palm Desert. Or just lie by the pool and soak up some rays. Or try out some of our fabulous restaurants and bars. Our optional events this year will include the 9 pin no tap on Thursday, brackets, 3 of 9 (that’s the best single high handicap game from singles, doubles and team), optional scratch, mega-brackets, the women’s optional, and scratch masters. On behalf of the PSDIC committee, we look forward to seeing you in October! Last year our tournament sold out by the end of June! So don’t delay getting your entry in. It will fill up soon, so don’t miss out. We will do our best to get you on the squad you request, but there are no guarantees.
