Chicago, IL - The annual Second City Open Tournament - Chicago (SCOTCH) Bowling Tournament drew 140 participants in early-March, with representatives from 14 states, including Nevada and North Carolina.

SCOTCH is Chicago's annual official IGBO bowling tournament and was held at Waveland Bowl; the event evolved from the long-running and successful Chicago Pride Invitational (CPI), with its inaugural tournament in 2014.

Dan Brown shined in SCOTCH, recording a perfect 300-game, his 27th overall.

The tournament had 18 different sponsors, including Crew Bar & Grill, Replay Lakeview, and Waveland Bowl. Organizers donated $250 to two local charities: Planned Parenthood and Equality Illinois.

At the awards banquet, organizers raffled off close to $3,000 in cash, including a $1,000 cash Grand Prize, as well as hotel getaways, bottles of scotch, bowling balls (including one signed by gay PBA professional bowler Scott Norton), and a Bose wireless speaker.
