Well, there were a lot of other tournaments going on today, plus the pro bowl. We really weren't expecting another great turn to our 3rd straight minor event. As always, the SFT AHT family surprised me! The event drew 73 total entries which consisted of 45 qualifying entries and 28 economy parlay entries. It had 18 cashers, a 1 in 3.8 cash ratio and paid out over $3,300.00 in main and side event prizes. It is clear that the members are really enjoying bowling every weekend. There were some concerns that it may be tough for some people to afford to bowl every weekend and if people would get burnt out on it. This was our 4th event in 4 weeks and our 3rd straight minor. Each event has new bowlers that didn’t bowl in the last event and there are some members that just can’t get enough to bowl. So far the changes and additions for the 2015 season look very promising and we are excited to see if they continue to have successful results.
Well we weren't sure how these new Minor formats were going to work out, but it is clear now that they are going great so far! We had our biggest turn out so far for a one day event with 93 total entries! The event had 62 qualifying entries and 31 economy parlay entries, 22 cashers, a 1 in 4.2 cash ratio and paid out over $4,000.00 in main and side event prizes. The incredible turn out allowed us to pay FAR MORE then our advertised guaranteed payouts. We were able to payout $1,000 for first instead of $600, $600 for 2nd instead of $300 and $300 for third instead of $200. We also increased the semi-finalist payouts from $160 to $175 and all of the quarter finalists went up $25. We can't thank all of the members enough for their incredible support over the years. We were suprised the very first time we got over 90 entries for 6 squads, and today we were able to accompish that with only 3 squads.
