Bowlero Kyrene - 1/16/22

We kicked off the 2022 season with our first event this weekend at Bowlero Kyrene and we had a great turnout with 126 entries (86 qualifying and 40 economy parlays).  We had 35 cashers, a 1 in 3.6 cash ratio and paid out over $7,000.00 in main and side event prize funds.  The players bowled on the 43ft Kegel Krypton oil pattern that was higher scoring for most of the day.  Bowlers were able to play a variety of angles on the pattern.  The cut scores stayed above +90 for most of the day, which meant that you had to bowl about 25-30 pins over your average per game to qualify.

AMF Chandler Lanes - 12/11/21

This weekend was our very final event of the 2021 season.  We had our Match Play Invitational at AMF Chandler Lanes.  The top 24 bowlers in total season points, except the Player of the Year, 2nd and 3rd place bowlers were invited to bowl this event.  These bowlers were all trying to win an event exemption for the upcoming 2021 season.  The winner of this event would win 2 exemptions and 2nd place would receive 1 exemption for the upcoming 2022 season.

Glenfair - 12/5/21

Our event this weekend was at Glenfair Lanes and it was our last regular season event of the 2021 season.  We had a great turnout with 104 entries (82 qualifying and 22 economy parlays) with 29 cashers, a 1 in 3.58 cash ratio and paid out over $7,000.00 in main and side event prize funds.  The players bowled on the 40ft Kegel Highway to Hell oil pattern that played pretty tough for most of the day.  There were some higher scores but bowlers were able to play a variety of angles on the pattern.  The cut scores stayed around +50 for most of the day, which meant that you had to bowl about 10-15 pins over your average per game to qualify.

Bowlero Via Linda - 11/28/21

Our event this weekend was at Bowlero Via Linda and we had a pretty good turnout!  We had 89 total entries (64 qualifying and 25 economy parlays), 27 total cashers, and a 1 in 3.29 cash ratio and paid out over $4,700.00 in main and side event prize funds.  Players bowled on the 48ft PBA Shark oil pattern.  This house is usually one of the higher scoring houses due to a lot of friction on the lanes and we did see some higher scoring as the day went on.  The thing with a longer oil pattern is that you tend to leave a lot of single pin spares as bowlers are not able to carry the pocket.  So, picking up spares was a key to doing well.

Mesa East Bowl - 11/20/2021

Our event this weekend was at Mesa East Bowl and we had a special early bird 2-squad event.  We had a really good turnout for our earlier squad times with 89 total entries (59 qualifying and 30 economy parlays).  We had 28 cashers, a 1 in 3.41 cash ratio and paid out over $5,200.00 in main and side event prize funds.  The players bowled on the 38ft Alcatraz oil pattern that saw some higher scores on the fresh oil, but as the day went on the pattern would get tighter and tighter.  It was a medium pattern where bowlers were able to play a variety of angles on the pattern and those that could strike a couple of strikes here and there would do pretty good.  Our cut scores were all around the even mark with some even making with a slight negative score, which meant that if you just had to bowl close to your average to qualify.

AMF McRay - 11/14/2021

Our event this weekend was at AMF McRay lanes and had a pretty good turnout for a two-squad event considering that we didn’t start until over an hour later than schedule.  The center’s lane machine was having issues and we are thankful for everyone that stayed through the delay.  We had a total of with 82 entries for the event (49 qualifying and 33 economy parlays) and had 24 total cashers, a 1 in 3.41 cash ratio and paid out over $3,900.00 in main and side event prize funds. The players bowled on the very tough 44ft PBA Carmen Salvino oil pattern.  The bowlers that were able to keep repeating their shot and leave makeable spares would see the most success.  If you missed just a bit inside or out, then you ended up with a split or a tough spare.  The pattern would be high scoring to start, but has the day went on it seemed that the lanes go tighter.

AMF Chandler Lanes - 11/7/21

Our event this weekend was at AMF Chandler Lanes and we had a pretty good turnout!  We had 82 total entries (57 qualifying and 25 economy parlays), 24 total cashers, and a 1 in 3.41 cash ratio and paid out over $4,650.00 in main and side event prize funds.  Players bowled on the 45ft PBA Dragon oil pattern.  This house is usually one of the highest scoring houses due to a lot of friction on the lanes and we did see some higher scoring than in previous tournaments.  We had not one, but two 300 games and one 800 series this weekend.  Congrats to Maurice Sykes on shooting his very 1st 300 game with his newly drilled Trend 2.  Also, congrats to Hunter Mayes for shooting 300 and 800 series in our quarterfinals round.  Hunter’s 3-game series would be one of the highest scratch series we’ve seen as he was able to shoot 822 (279-300-243) using his Purple Hammer.

Bowlero Mesa - 10/24/21

Our event this weekend was at Bowlero Mesa and we had a pretty good turnout considering that there were a couple of other events going on around the Valley.  We had 113 total entries (76 qualifying & 37 economy parlay) for 3 squads, with 29 prize winners and a 1 in 3.89 cash ratio.  We paid out over $6,200 in main and side event prize funds.  The players bowled on a the 39ft WTBA Seoul oil pattern which is a medium pattern that allowed bowlers to play from a variety of angles.  Scores were up and down all day as the pattern transitioned differently from pair to pair depending on how it was being broken down.  Some lanes you had to play deep, but others you had to straighten up your line to get the ball to enter the pocket correctly.  The bowlers that were able to figure out their pairs were able to stay out of trouble.  The average cut scores to the quarterfinals were about +30 which meant that you just had to get 5-10 pins over your average per game to advance to the Quarterfin

Mesa East Bowl - 10/16/21

Our event this weekend was at Mesa East Bowl for a 2-squad standard event.  We had a pretty good turnout considering other tournaments going on in the Valley!  We had 78 total entries (48 qualifying and 28 economy parlays) with a cash ratio of 1 in 3.61 and paying out over $3,900 in main and side event prize funds.  The bowlers played on a very difficult 37ft Kegel Radium oil pattern, that is a bit short and flat, which saw some pretty low-cut scores.  The average cut to make it to the quarterfinals was about even, which meant that you just had to get close to your average to move on.  While the bowling center has the characteristic of creating some hook and some high scores, the pins however, really fly and it's very easy to have too much entry angle and leave a lot of single pin spares.  So, picking up the spares would be key this weekend!

Bowlero Kyrene - 10/10/21

Our event this weekend was at Bowlero Kyrene and it would kick off the start of the 2021 Fall Quarterly Circuit.  Our season points race, to determine our Player of the Year, is also broken into quarterly circuits with prizes awarded for the Top 4 bowlers in each quarter.  We had a lite turnout considering there were three other events going on throughout the Valley and especially with the AZ Cardinals starting off so hot this year.  We had 71 total entries (38 qualifying & 33 economy parlay) for 3 squads, with 21 prize winners and a 1 in 3.38 cash ratio.  We paid out over $3,600 in main and side event prize funds.  The players bowled on a pattern we don’t use often that is a tough one to get used to. The PBA pattern Badger that is 52 foot in length. This is the longest oil pattern used in competitive play and “hooking” your ball into the pocket isn’t really an option at the beginning.
