Congratulations to Edwin Peart - SS on defeating Mike Chapman SS, 247 to 216 to take home the $1000.00 first prize and trophy. This is Edwin's first SSO championship and he did it at his first tournament since his hip replacement surgery. WOW! Ed qualified tied for last spot with an 1190 total at the end of our 6 games with Henry Fee and defeated Henry in the one game roll-off to take over 18th spot. Ed averaged 198 to make the cut. He then got energized and averaged 237 for his next 5 games. That's 12 games for the day and an outstanding performance to say the least.
Congratulations also goes out to Mike Chapman on his second place finish. Mike qualified in 12th spot with a 204 average.
This month's tournament took place at Astro Lanes where we used the Kegel 50ml Broadway oiling pattern. We would like to thank the management and staff for hosting our tournament this weekend.
We had 72 bowlers this weekend with one having to withdraw early. There were 21 super seniors, 5 super super seniors and 2 female bowler in attendance. In our Elimination Rounds we had 8 SS, 2 SSS and 1 female along with the rest of our seniors.
The Tournament average this weekend was 185, which is just 3 pins higher than our lowest tournament average ever of 182. It took a total of 1190 and an average of 198 or better to make it to the Elimination Rounds above the cut line set by Peart.
There were two regular seniors, three super seniors and 1 SSS below the cut line that advanced. Henry Fee and Mike Schober were the two senior's, Mike Lucente, Dave Patcheni and Sandy Schultz were the three super seniors and Nick Beelaard was the highest super, super senior out of 5 to advance below the cut line.
We ended up with 24 bowlers in the Elimination Rounds, providing a little better than 1 in 3 cashing ratio for the tournament.
