Congratulations this month goes out to HOF'r Gerald Johnson on winning his 22nd SSO Singles Championship by defeating two time Champion and HOF'r Larry Franz SSS in the final match, 213 to 180 taking home the top prize of $1000.00, the trophy and 10 points toward this season's BOTY category. Gerald qualified below the cut line however advanced to the Elimination rounds (see Rule 7) with a 215 average and 1292 total.
Congratulations also goes to Larry Franz on his second place finish, collecting $500 and 8 points towards BOTY. Franz qualified in 56th place and still made it to the Elimination rounds due to having 12 SSS in attendance. Larry was the last SSS to get in. His average was 203 with a 1220 6 game total.
Given the new rule changes, this shows you should never give up and you should encourage all bowlers in your division to compete if they are not already doing so!
This month's tournament average was 206 or 10 pins higher than last month.
We had 88 bowlers in attendance this month with one bowler having to withdraw early.
We also had 32 bowlers in our Elimination Rounds.
For attendance we had 32 SS, 12 SSS and 5 W with the rest of our seniors. This provided a better than 1 in 3 cashing ratio for the tournament.
It took a total of 1343 and an average of 224 or better to make our regular cut line set by Brian Haight.
High Qualifier was Mike McCleskey with 1461 total pin fall with an average of 244 after his first 6 games. Once again Mike fell claim to our HQC (High Qualifier Curse) and never got past round 1.
We had no honor scores this weekend.
We are proud to have as our major sponsor for 2021
