AMF Union Hills - 8/11/19

Our event this weekend was at AMF Union Hills and we had a nice turnout! We had 67 entries (20 parlay & 47 qualifying), 22 cashers, a 1 in 3.1 cash ratio and paid out over $2,000.00 in main and side event prize funds!  The players bowled on a 43ft Mexico City oil pattern that for the most part was low scoring on the fresh, but scores went up as the day went on. The bowlers that had success were able to play in the middle of the lane and keep their ball inside the ten board at the breakpoint.  If you got it too far outside, then the ball wouldn’t come back and leave you with a washout or split.  The average cut scores were all around the +40 to +50 range, which meant most players had to bowl above their average.

AMF Tempe Village - 8/4/19

Our event this weekend was at AMF Tempe Village and it was a pretty big turnout! We had a whopping 112 entries through 3 squads, which consisted of 70 qualifying entries and 42 economy parlay entries. This created a huge payout of over $5,100.00 in main and side event prize fund! The players bowled on a very tough 36ft Phase 1 oil pattern, which were bowled on new lanes that were installed at this house at beginning of the year, which forced most players to be able to make shots and convert their makeable spares.  It was very difficult to hook the ball on the fresh and bowlers had to adapt as each pair played differently.  Most of the players that did have success was after the pattern had broken down and you would see the scores increase as the day went on.  The final cut scores for the weekend were only around the +15 range which only requires bowling their average or just a slight bit above average for the 3-game set.

Glenfair Lanes - 7/28/19

Our event this weekend was at Glenfair Lanes. We had a below average turn out with 67 total entries (45 qualifying and 22 economy parlay). The players bowled on a pretty low scoring 42ft Tokyo oil pattern that yeilded cut scores of around +20-+30, so the players had to bowl average to safely make the cut. There were styles that played more direct, but it seemed that more players had success more in the middle of the lane than the outside part of the lane. That is pretty common with the topography at Glenfair. The gutters tend to not play as well with more friction coming from the track area.

Brunswick Via Linda - 7/21/19

This weekends event was at Bowlero Via Linda lanes and we had another solid turn out with 93 total entries (63 qualifying and 30 economy parlay). The players bowled on a very demanding 38ft Atlanta oil pattern that had extremely low scores. We had one of our all time lowest parlay winning scores in the B division, with -22 winning a free entry with progressive! The players played the lanes in a variety of angles, with some playing outside and some playing the deeper inside angles. It did seem that most of the players that did the best didn't have extreme left to right angles or extreme right to left angles. The average cut scores for the day were around +10 which meant the players didn't even need to bowl their average to win prizes at this event! Pretty crazy! 

AMF McRay - 7/14/19

Our event this weekend was at AMF McRay lanes and we had a HUGE turn out! In 3 squads we had 124 entries (51 parlay & 73 qualifying), 29 cashers, a 1 in 4.2 cash ratio and paid out over $5,000.00 in main and side event prize fund!  The players bowled on a 44ft London oil pattern that for the most part was pretty low scoring. There were a handful of players that really seemed to match up and bowl well on the longer oil pattern. The average cut scores were all around the +30 to +40 range which meant most players had to be close to their average or a few pins above it each game.

Glenfair - 6/30/19

Our event this weekend was at Glenfair lanes and we had nice little turnout with all the other events going on in the Valley.  We had 68 total entries (44 qualifying and 24 economy parlay), 26 total cashers, a 1 in 3.1 cash ratio and paid out over $3,250.00 in main and side event prize funds.  Players bowled on the PBA 47ft Scorpion pattern. Most of the players played in the middle of the lane or around the 2nd arrow at the furthest right. It took a couple of squads for the pattern to finally break down and forced players further left, but once it finally broke down the scores increased significantly.

Bowlero Kyrene - 6/23/19

Our event this weekend was at Bowlero Kyrene and we had a great turnout!  We had 111 total entries (71 qualifying & 40 economy parlay), with 31 cashers, a 1 in 3.58 cash ratio and a payout of over $5,500.00 in main and side event prize funds. The players bowled on a very difficult 40ft PBA Bear oil pattern that had some of the lowest scores of the season. The pattern allowed players to play from any angle, but the key was trying to make high quality shots and then pick your spares.  There were quite a few people who thought that the scores would go up for the last squad as the lanes would have some more play on them by then. However, this didn’t happen at all, as the cut score stayed pretty much the same in all three divisions from squad 1 to squad 3.

Bowlero Desert Sky - 6/15/19

Our event this weekend was at Bowlero Desert Sky Lanes and we had nice little turnout with 66 total entries (43 qualifying and 23 economy parlay), 21 total cashers, and a 1 in 3.15 cash ratio and paid out over $3,200.00 in main and side event prize funds.  Players bowled on the 42ft Autobahn oil pattern. Most of the players played in the middle of the lane trying to push their ball out past the 2nd arrow.  This house typically has a lot of friction and it didn't take very long for the pattern to break down which forced players to move further left resulting in some very high scores.  The average cut for today was about +100, which meant that bowlers had to bowl at least 20 or more pins higher than their regular average.

AMF McRay - 6/9/2019

The event today was at AMF McRay, we had 71 total entries with 41 qualifying and 30 economy parlay entries. The players bowled on the 38ft Winding Road oil pattern that yeilded medium to higher scores. The cut scores varied but averaged around +50 for the event, which meant it took bowlers bowling 10 pins over their average a game to make the cut. 

We want to welcome Harold Smith and Geoff Garrow to the SFT AHT family! Thanks to you guys for coming out and trying out the event, we hope you had a good time in your first event! 

The quarter finals were very low scoring, with one of the divisions taking minus to be the division champion! We had Bob Gazis coming out of the A division with +33, Kevin Dollar -3 in the C division and Dan Marks at +14. Which means the average leader actually bowled under their average to win their division.
