Because Bowlers Matter!

Roger Koplin Jr, a well know bowler from San Jose, California, was the catalyst of the Mega Tournament.

The idea of starting the Mega came about from numerous conversations with the many contacts he has developed over 50 years in the bowling industry.

The common theme was that there was something terrible wrong with existing tournament formats, pay ratios, and the general operations of existing tournaments.

Roger then contacted others to see if those complaints and concerns about current tournament formats were founded.

It was a resounding YES! At that point he put together a team of experienced tournament players and the Mega tournament was born.

Since this is the first year of the Mega, we will be open to suggestions on how to improve the tournament.

Suggestions put forth by those support the MEGA will be given the greatest consideration.
