Jan. 5th. 2019

The tournament average was 212, 5 pins higher than our last tournament.

High Qualifier was HOF'er Gerald Johnson  with 1524 total pins and an average of 254 after his first 6 games. Unfortunately Gerald didn't make it past round 1 saving his low game of the day of 207. 

It took a total of 1339 and an average of 223 or better to make our regular cut line set by Jim Maglan.

We had 80 bowlers in attendance this month. There were 26 super seniors, 5 super super seniors and 3 female bowler with the rest of our seniors. 

We also had 26 bowlers in our Elimination Rounds, 10 SS and  3 SSS along with the rest of our seniors. This provided a little better than 1 in 3 cashing ratio for the tournament.

There were two 300 games, one by Mike McCleskeyour during qualifying and one by Pete Minaudo in game 2 of Eliminations.  We also saw a 299 in game 2 of qualifying and a 290 by Mike Snow in his third game of qualifying.

The SSO would like to thank everyone for coming out to compete. The SSO would also like to thank our sponsors; Ebonite Bowling Products, Red Robin, Turbo 2 in 1 Grips and the Hamtramck Singles Classic for their support of our tournaments.
