The Denver Annual 2018 Committee and bowling community is proud to host the 2018 International Gay Bowling Organization’s Annual Tournament, which will be held May 23, 2018, through May 28, 2018.
Denver has a lot to offer bowlers and their companions prior to, during, and after the tournament. In addition to friendly competition that Denver tournaments are known for, visitors will be able to take in a number of sites and experiences throughout the Denver metro area, including concerts at Red Rocks Amphitheater, hiking in the Colorado Foothills, gambling in Central City/Black Hawk, museum and art exhibits, and much more. Denver also has top-rated microbrewery and burgeoning food scenes.

Getting around town can easily be done without a rental car. We have train lines that run throughout the city. Once in Denver, you can connect to other areas of the Denver Metro Area, including downtown and the airport.
Denver’s bars are mostly located near downtown. Some of the bars are close to the light rail lines. For example, the Denver Wrangler is located across the street from the 30th and Downing St. Station. Others, such as Charlie’s Denver, X-Bar, and Trade, are located within a mile or two of the light rail. A typical Uber or Lyft ride will be less than $10 one way from the hotel.
For guests flying into Denver and who do not wish to rent a car, commuter & light rail are affordable options to get to the hotel from Denver International Airport. It’s only $9 from the airport to downtown and takes 37 minutes.
If bowlers prefer, they can always take an Uber or a Lyft from the hotel to the bowling houses, which would cost $20 or less (estimated) depending upon the house.
For guests flying into Denver and who do wish to rent a car, there are a number of car rental companies to choose from. The approximate travel time is 40-45 minutes during non-peak hours.
