AFFORDABLE RATES IN PEORIA
The 1920 American Bowling Congress tournament in Peoria, Illinois, offered affordable rates to entrants. Each bowler paid a fee of $1 for each event, plus 25 cents for ABC membership and 50 cents for the all-events portion of the tournament. While $1 was worth quite a bit more in 1920 than today, it was still within reach of the average American worker.
