International Bowling Association Tournament

The International Bowling Association was formed in 1909, when the Minnesota Bowling Association voted to accept leagues from Canada. The annual IBA Tournament, usually held in Minneapolis or St. Paul, became a successful regional event that attracted entries from several Midwestern states.  A victim of the Great Depression, the IBA suspended operations after the 1933 tournament.
