Glenfair Lanes - 10/7/17

 

Our event this weekend was at Glenfair Lanes. It was a last minute day change from Sunday to Saturday to avoid bumping up right with another tournament that was in the center the same day. The fact that it was a Saturday and the short notice change reduced the entries a bit, but we still had a good time and did some bowling. The event had 64 total entries (44 qualifying - 23 economy parlay) had 20 cashers, a 1 in 3.2 cash ratio and paid out just under $3,000.00. The players bowled on the 41ft Rome oil pattern which played very difficult. Most players either played further inside or no further outside then 10 or 12 board. The cut scores all day long normally only required players to bowl average or slightly below.

Brunswick Desert Sky - 9/16/17

Our event this weekend was at Brunswick Desert Sky lanes! We had a great turn out with 90 entries (65 qualifying entries and 25 economy parlay), 24 cashers, a 1 in 3.7 cash ratio and paid out over $4,500.00 in main and side event prizefund. The players bowled on a 35ft Cheetah oil pattern that provided slightly higher cut scores then usual. Cheetah tends to be one of the easiest sport patterns, as it allows players to get some free hook on the gutter which is similiar to the house shot. However, it is still a sport pattern, and isn't a walk in the park. There isn't a lot of oil in the middle of the lane, like a house shot, so you have to get it to the outside friction or the ball will run high.

Brunswick Kyrene - 9/4/17

Well our final major of the 2017 season didn’t disappoint! We were only a few entries away from our all time record, but did set some records in most entries ever in the 3 day sweeper and most amount of bowlers making their first ever quarter finals. The event had 247 total entries (149 qualifying – 98 economy parlay), had 66 prize winners, a 1 in 3.74 cash ratio and paid out just under $20,000.00 in main and side event prize fund!

Brunswick Mesa - 8/20/17

The event today was another great one with 107 entries (72 qualifying & 35 economy parlay), 29 cashers and a 1 in 3.2 cash ratio. The event paid out over $4,000.00 in main and side event prize fund! The players bowled on a very tough 32ft Wolf oil pattern that had the most success out near the gutter early but as the oil carried down allowed players to have more success inside. The pattern can be confusing for some. Where most patterns get “dryer” and hook more as games are bowled, this pattern tends to do the opposite.

We also had a new bowler join us for this event! Joe Miller joined us for his first ever event this weekend! He traveled from Avondale for his first event and we hope he had a good time! We look forward to seeing you at the next one! We also want to congratulate John Jones on being this weekend’s only Parlay Power Player! Also congrats to Samm Cosby, Nick Devlin, Josh Black and Joe Banno on breaking some long quarter finals slumps!

AMF Chandler - 8/13/17

Our Track Match Play Challenge event had a total of 47 entries today and paid out over $1,300.00 in main and side event prize fund! The players bowled on a 47ft Paris oil pattern that hooked a lot due to the lane surface at this bowling center. The players had to play the middle of the lane like most long patterns, but it was because anything outside of that would overreact by quite a bit. The scoring was medium to high all day long with cashing numbers normally averaging around +80.

Brunswick Tri-City - 8/6/17

Our event this weekend was at Brunswick Tri-City lanes and had a great turn out considering there were 3 other tournaments going on the same day. We had 89 total entries (69 qualifying & 30 economy parlay) for 3 squads, 25 prize winners and a 1 in 3.5 cash ratio. The players bowled on the 43ft Brunswick Phantom oil pattern that was another very low scoring event. Players could play in just about any part of the lane, but there wasn’t a lot of margin of error and the pair to pair differences were also tough.

AMF Mesa - 7/23/17

Well, yet again we set another record! The continued support from the growing SFT community is pushing the club to further and further heights! We got the most amount entries for a 3 squad standard event! 136 entries in 3 squads is not only a new high, but is also more bowlers then we normally have on the Monday’s of a Major event! Pretty impressive turn out! A big thanks for AMF Mesa for quickly adapting for us and hosting a well ran event. A huge thanks to my wife, better half and absolute trooper Liz who worked her tail off. We normally have 2 check in people during Monday’s of Majors and Liz handled it all by herself with even more entries then a Monday Major. Huge thanks to her!

Brunswick Via Linda - 7/16/17

We have had a run of great turn outs even though it’s the summer season and this weekend kept that streak alive! We had a huge 114 entries (80 qualifying & 34 economy parlay) turn out, with 30 cashers, a 1 in 3.8 cash ratio and a payout of over $5,000.00 in main and side event prize fund. The players bowled on a very difficult 40ft 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 make your spares. There were quite a few people who thought that the scores would maybe go up 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 2 to squad 1.

Brunswick Desert Sky - 6/25/17

Our event this weekend was at Brunswick Desert Sky lanes. The event drew 84 total entries, had 24 cashers, a 1 in 3.5 cash ratio and paid out over $4,000.00 in main and side event prize fund! The players bowled on a very tough 47ft pattern that had very low scoring on the fresh and slightly higher scoring on the later squads. It wasn’t possible for many players to successfully play right of the 7 or 8 board. Most players were left of the 2nd arrow and it seemed that the players that had softer ball speeds or higher rev rates faired the best throughout the day. Most of the cut scores all day long only required the players to bowl their average. The highest scores for the day were normally players that averaged 10-15 pins a game over their average. It was definitely a tough pattern and was a change of pace for the regulars who haven’t bowled on a long pattern in quite a while.

Glenfair Lanes - 6/17/17

We had a fun little sweeper event this weekend at Glenfair Lanes. The players bowled on a 38ft Alacatraz oil pattern that seemed to offer medium to low scores early and higher scores later in the day. We did have a variety of styles do well though with some straighter players and higher rev players finishing in the top 5. The event had a total of 42 entries, 10 cashers and paid out over $1,000.00 in main and side event prize fund.

After the first squad the leader was James Roethle at +67 and the projected low to cash was a bit below that at +61. The second squad was our largest squad of the day and increased the number of cashers to 7 and lowered the projected low to cash to +51, but the new leader was Paul Williams at +87. The third squad had some players jump off to some big games with Brooke Carroll, Mike Fitzgerald, and Ron Gonzales bowling good scores the first two games.
