Turbo Collegiate Expo IX Will Be Back in Michigan in 2019

Clinton Township’s Imperial Lanes will host bowling’s best college recruiting event July 7-10.


After a very successful event in Texas in 2018, the ninth annual Turbo Collegiate Expo will return to Turbo’s home state of Michigan to build on what has become one of the most amazing events in bowling for young bowlers headed for college and thinking about bowling on the collegiate level.

Young men and women high school bowling athletes, parents, college coaches and recruiters, Hall of Fame Turbo Pro Staff bowlers and coaches, and event officials will

gather at 80-lane Imperial Lanes, about 30 miles Northeast of Detroit, July 7-10, 2019.

For complete event details and easy on-line registration, go to Collegiate Expo. This event will fill up fast, so don’t delay. Student Registration limited to only 210.

Collegiate expo was a great experience, however one thing stood out from the experience. Personally, the information I took the most out of was during Del Warren’s seminar on Laneplay. He told us how to identify whether or not the topography on the lane will allow you to play up the gutter. This information was very useful throughout Junior Gold!  All in all collegiate expo was a great experience, thank you for everything you did for us!

Thank you for having a great program (Collegiate Expo) for both the students and the parents.   I think all of the staff and coaches where great. Dry Dean was a great addition to the group.  Thank you again and my daughter cannot wait to sign up for next year!!

The all new Turbo Gamer grip is a product that has me very excited. All I’ve ever known for my entire bowling career to make sure you had a secure feel in the ball was rosin. Well now with the all new Gamer grip I feel rosin will be a thing of the past for me. I applied a small amount only to the front of my thumb and I was set. I didnt have to touch any rosin to feel like a had a good feel in the ball. This product is gonna be a game changer for me.

The collegiate expo is one of the best events of the year for us coaches to really evaluate recruits. Turbo makes the event one of the easiest to see bowlers of all ages and has a simple way to identify them as we watch them throughout the event. Not only does the event allow coaches to see hundreds of the best high school athletes but gives college programs the opportunity to give information about their school and see which school could be the best match for the student athlete.

I use Turbo Rev for protection of my index finger.  I grip really hard with my index finger and it provides me with cushion and prevents my finger from splitting.  I started using Turbo Rev about two years ago after constantly developing a callous that would eventually split and cause a ton of pain.  Ever since I started using Turbo Rev, no callous, no pain.  I can’t bowl without it!

That new insert tape (Grip Strips)  is awesome. Great feel, the adhesive on the back came out clean, love the texture of the tape. I don’t know if there is any difference from the colors, or they are simply just colors. I don’t have that much of a sensitive feel, but using that tape made a huge difference in my bowling this weekend.

I started using Switch Grips so I could have the same feel in every ball I use. Even if every ball you have has the exact same size thumb hole, which is almost impossible, they still don’t “feel” the same. From day 1, I was hooked! It is great knowing I can switch balls in a tournament, and not even think/worry about IF the ball I want to use is going to feel right. I am very confident recommending people to use Switch Grips, because I know they will love it too. With the simplicity of use, and installation, I can’t imagine any reason why people don’t use them!

“As millions know on the internet and around the world what happens when a bowling ball doesn’t come off your thumb during live TV, the thumb for one handed bowlers is essential for a perfect release. After that prolific day in Las Vegas, where the pitch in my thumb hole was wrong, I started using the Switch Grip the week after and haven’t looked back. When drilling hundreds of balls a year on the PBA Tour and while at home, it was hard to get the perfect thumb on every ball. Now I have the perfect thumb in every ball and can eliminate another variable in my game.
As a Pro Shop owner, I try and get all of my customers who have an odd shaped thumb to try the Switch Grip product. This elevates any issue with the customer having a less than perfect thumb in every ball. This product is perfect for customers who buy more than 4 balls a year because they have full faith in knowing the next ball will feel the exact same as their pervious ones. With a game that has an infinite about of variables to deal with, this product helps eliminate one of those variables so you can score higher and have more fun!”
