We are very excited to host the 2017 USBC Women’s Championships in 2017 and are currently putting plans in place to welcome you next spring.
While the city of Baton Rouge faced one of the worst floods in recent years, we are here to say that the citizens of our community are unlike any you’ve ever met. You may have seen national stories of how we, as a community, came together to help one another. Those stories are all true and we’re so proud to call this city home. The dedication and energy to make our city greater than it was is on the forefront of our minds and I can assure you that the city is improving daily and without the dedication and energy of residents of this city we would not be where we are today.
The downtown area where you all will be playing was unaffected by the flooding. In fact, our offices are located in downtown Baton Rouge and we were back to work within days of the flooding. We welcomed evacuees in the Raising Cane's River Center days after the flood, but as of mid-September they have all evacuees have moved out and are rebuilding. Business is back to normal and we were able to show that recently during a site visit with organizers of the USBC Women’s Nationals.
It is our pleasure to welcome you to this great city and state! If we can be of any assistance as you make your travel plans to Baton Rouge, please know that we’re here to help you plan your stay. You can reach us at (800) 527-6843 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit our website to plan your itinerary, www.VisitBatonRouge.com. We can’t wait to welcome you and we can assure you that our community is excited to be able to host the Women’s Championships once again.
