This month's tournament was held at Summit Lanes where we requested their house pattern. We would like to thank the management and staff for hosting our tournament this weekend.
This month's tournament average was 221.
We had 58 bowlers in attendance this month. There were 4 SSS, 14 SS and 4 female bowlers with the rest of our seniors.
We also had 22 bowlers in our Elimination Rounds, 1 SSS, 8 SS with the rest of our seniors. This provided a little better than 1 in 3 cashing ratio for the tournament.
It took a total of 1374 and an average of 229 or better to make our regular cut line set by Gary Duarard..
High Qualifier was Tim Skinner with 1535 total pin fall with an average of 256 after his first 6 games. As so often happens, Jeff was unable to get past the 1st round becoming one more victim to the high qualifiers curse.
