evaluationThe SSO would like to provide more tournaments with a wider variety of formats. We'd enjoy bringing you two events per month once in a while. One would be our regular format and one would be one of our "Special" tournaments. We're discussing a "Non Winners" tournament, a "Doubles Tournament" (regular or baker format), a "High-Low Doubles" and a "Super Senior Tournament" to mention a few. What do you think? We welcome your feedback.

30 out of our 79 entries were Super Seniors, making up 38% of our turnout. 7 out of 23, or 30% of our Super Senior bowlers made up this month's elimination rounds or 23% of all our Super Seniors made the cut.

This month we are pleased to announce that Ebonite Bowling Products will be our major sponsor starting January 2016.

The SSO would like to thank everyone for coming out to compete. The Senior Singles Open would also like to thank our sponsors; Red Robin, Budweiser and Turbo 2 in 1 Grips for their support of our tournaments.
