Tourism officials in Reno are rolling out the bowling lanes themselves for the national U.S. Women's Open and first-ever Senior Women's Open.
Temporary outdoor lanes are being set up beneath the city's famous arch on the main casino drag where the finals will be held on Wednesday. Competition began Thursday at the National Bowling Stadium a few blocks from the landmark that declares Reno the "Biggest Little City in the World."
The 300 bowlers and their fans are expected to pump over $2 million into the area's economy.
That's in addition to another $8 million coinciding with the Bowling Proprietors Association of America International Bowl Expo at the convention center south of downtown.
