Las Vegas Rolls a Strike with 12-Year Deal to Host USBC Championship Events at South Point Hotel and Casino
Posted April 30, 2013
Tweet It: .@southpointlv, @702_Events, @LVCVA & @USBC announce $30M #bowling arena, 12-year deal to bring USBC events to @Vegas starting 2013!

LAS VEGAS – Today, South Point Hotel and Casino, the United States Bowling Congress (USBC), Las Vegas Events (LVE), and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) announced an 12-year deal to host several annual USBC events, including the USBC Open Championships and USBC Women’s Championships, both citywide and inside a new, $30 million bowling tournament facility at South Point starting in 2013.

Over the course of the 12-year agreement, USBC will host seven Championship events inside South Point’s new bowling tournament facility, including the USBC Women’s Championships in 2016, 2020 and 2022 and the USBC Open Championships in 2017, 2019, 2021 and 2023. There will also be more than 40 additional tournaments, conventions and short duration events held throughout Las Vegas during the agreement, including events such as the USBC Masters, USBC Queens, USBC Senior Masters and USBC Team USA trials.

“Las Vegas is excited to continue a partnership with the United States Bowling Congress that began four decades ago when we hosted the USBC Women’s Championships,” said Rossi Ralenkotter, president/CEO for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “We look forward to strengthening the partnership over the next decade and becoming the premier destination for USBC events.”

The USBC, LVE, and the LVCVA are partnering with South Point to enhance this new agreement by building a permanent, world-class bowling tournament facility at one of Las Vegas’ premier bowling destinations. Construction of the new arena at South Point will commence in May 2013. South Point’s current bowling center, which will still continue operations, is already a world-renowned facility that annually hosts top professional and amateur events, including the Professional Bowlers Association’s World Series of Bowling. The new tournament facility will include more than 60 lanes featuring the latest bowling technology, tournament registration area, bowler’s squad room, modern locker facilities and more.

“South Point already runs a premier bowling center where casual fans, amateurs and professionals from all over the world come to play the game they love,” said Michael Gaughan, owner of South Point. “This new bowling tournament facility we’re building with USBC will provide an unrivaled destination for bowling enthusiasts and add another dynamic element to attract visitors to South Point and Las Vegas.”

With participation estimates for the seven Championship events taken into account, event organizers estimate that 27 percent of attendees will have the ability to stay at the South Point, while the remaining 73 percent will occupy rooms throughout the city during event s held for the duration of this agreement.

"We are extremely excited about our partnership with the USBC and South Point Hotel and Casino," said Pat Christenson, president of Las Vegas Events. "This would not have been possible without the commitment from Michael Gaughan to build a state-of-the-art bowling venue and the USBC's commitment to host an unprecedented number of its events in Las Vegas."

In 2009, the USBC Open Championships, held at Cashman Center in Las Vegas, ran for a record 154 consecutive days with a capacity total of 17,200 teams competing from Feb. 21 to July 24, 2009. The total estimated attendance for bowling participants and their travel parties was 292,750 with an average room stay of 4.3 nights and a non-gaming economic impact of more than $120 million. Las Vegas was also host city for the USBC Open Championships in 1986. The USBC Women’s Championships previously was held in Las Vegas in 1973 and 1983, attracting 9,644 and 14,430 teams, respectively.

“The creation of a new bowling arena as part of a Las Vegas casino will be an amazing experience for our bowlers to enjoy,” USBC Executive Director Stu Upson said. “This agreement required tremendous public and private support in order to come together. We look forward to seeing the construction of a great venue that will be a source of pride for the entire bowling industry.”

About United States Bowling Congress:

SOUTH POINT HOTEL AND CASINO SETS NEW SPA STANDARD
Posted April 12, 2010
New Couples Suite with Specialty Treatments Opens

LAS VEGAS, NV - Just in time for Valentine's Day, Spa Costa Del Sur has opened a new couples' suite. This room is complete with two massage beds, Swiss shower with cascading water and a private steam room.

Developed just for this new facility are two new couples only treatment packages. "These treatments were designed with the goal of reconnecting partners that drift apart during the hustle and bustle of every day life," said spa director, Deirdre Strunk. "What better way to do that than with your sense of touch."

The first treatment is called "Private Party." It begins with the couple relaxing in their private steam room and then scrubbing each other from head to toe with an exfoliating body scrub. Next the couple gets to express their artistic side while painting one another with detoxifying muds from around the world. Once rinsed, the couple then enjoys side by side Swedish massages. This 80 minute treatment won't break the budget at only $295.00.

The second treatment is called "Ceremony of Love." This treatment begins with dual body glow followed by a private painting party in the intimate Swiss shower and steam room. This treatment is topped off with side by side Swedish massages. This two and a half hour treatment is the perfect solution for those couples needing time together. Relaxation and rejuvenation are priceless, but this treatment package is listed at $475.00.

Both treatments can be booked as stay and spa packages for that perfect mini-vacation or Valentine's Day surprise. "Private Party" weekday stay package is only $361.00 and weekend package is $415.00. "Ceremony of Love" weekday package is $541.00 and weekend is $595.00.

Spa Costa Del Sur is located inside the South Point Hotel and Casino at 9777 Las Vegas Blvd. South. A 20% locals discount is offered seven days a week with a local ID.
SOUTH POINT HOTEL & CASINO AND J.A. TIBERTI CONSTRUCTION "TOP OFF" FINAL TOWER
Posted April 12, 2010
LAS VEGAS, NV - South Point and J.A. Tiberti Construction have reached an important point in the construction of the third tower of the property. An evergreen tree will be lifted to the top of this 25 story tower to signify the safe and successful completion of the concrete structure. Michael Gaughan and Tito Tiberti will be present along with approximately 800 craftspeople for the ceremony.

"We are so proud to have completed this portion of the project safely and two weeks early," Michael Gaughan said.

Construction began last August on the third tower of the property. This $95 million expansion is 25 stories tall and includes an additional 800 guest rooms and suites. Approximately 10,000 square feet of additional conference space will also be included in this project. Completion of the third tower will make the South Point the Largest Locals' Hotel in the Valley with over 2,150 rooms and suites and 160,000 square feet of meeting and convention space.

Already completed and opened are two new restaurants, Baja Miguel's and Primarily Prime Rib. Construction began in August and the two restaurants opened in December of 2007 just in time for the NFR. Baja Miguel's features favorites from south of the border for both lunch and dinner while Primarily Prime Rib has four separate cuts of prime rib and other selections starting at just $11.95.

Still available for expansion are 60,000 square feet of casino space that has not been completed. It is currently a dirt floor and located on the first floor of the South end of the building. Plans for the space include additional restaurants and a state-of-the-art poker room. The rest of the space is still in the planning stages. One thing is sure, "I am always looking for what the customers want," Gaughan said.

SOUTH POINT FUN FACTS

* The largest amount of convention space of any locals' property. More space than the Orleans, Gold Coast, Sun Coast, Sam's Town, Boulder Station and Sunset Station combined.

* First resort casino in Las Vegas built south of Blue Diamond.

* The building is 25 stories tall, equal to standing a football field on end.

* The only property in town where you can ride a horse in the morning, play bingo after lunch, catch a matinee at the theatre, eat dinner at a AAA 4-Diamond Award winning restaurant, and see a world renowned act in the showroom and never leave the resort.
