The first BDN Tournament qualifying was held on January 27, 1926 with a six game block.
The top six bowlers then advanced to an 18 game roll-off. These were bowled in 6 game
blocks over three different nights. The finals were bowled on February 5, 1926.

No BDN tournaments were held in 1931, 1932 and 1933
See full story in the history page.

The BDN Tournament has been four 5 game blocks, for a total of 20 games from 1934
thru current year. This consists of 10 games of qualifying. Depending on the number
of entrants, the top bowlers were selected to compete in a semi-final 5 game block.
Then another cut was made and the top bowlers were selected for the finals for another
5 game block to determine the overall champion.

In 1961 there was a Women's Holiday Tournament also held during the week between Christmas & New Years Eve.

A woman's division was added in 1979.

A senior's Division was added in 2002.

2013 All three division are open to men and women. The women's was dropped and is now an Open Handicap
and the Senior division was also changed to be an Open Handicap Division
