AMF Tempe Village - 2/18/18

Our event this weekend was at AMF Tempe Village lanes, which we hadn’t been at in quite a long time and it showed! The bowlers were ready to come out and bowl in this center again! We had a great turnout with 122 total entries (86 qualifying entries & 36 economy parlay entries) 33 total cashers, a 1 in 3.8 cash ratio and paid out over $5,000.00 in main and side event prize fund! The players bowled on a 47ft Scorpion oil pattern that started off kind of tough, but nothing crazy and only got easier and easier as the day went on. The last squad really had the high scores, but it also was a huge one with 50 bowlers on it!

Brunswick Desert Sky - 2/10/18

Our event this weekend was at Brunswick Desert Sky lanes! We had a great turn out with 84 entries (60 qualifying entries and 24 economy parlay), 24 cashers, and a 1 in 3.5 cash ratio and paid out over $5,200.00 in main and side event prize fund.  We had two bowlers, Andy Morin and Ben Dewberry, win the Momma’s Mystery score for a total of $950.00.  It just goes to show you how much $5.00 can win you if your score is drawn.

The players bowled on a 36ft Brunswick Phase 1 oil pattern that provided slightly higher cut scores than usual. Due to the shorter oil pattern it allowed players to get some free hook on the gutter which is similar 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.

AMF McRay - 01/07/18

Our event this weekend was at AMF McRay and had another good turnout.  We had 97 total entries (63 qualifying & 34 economy parlay) for 3 squads, 26 prize winners and a 1 in 3.6 cash ratio. The players bowled on the 43ft Dean Man’s Curve oil pattern that was a very difficult pattern to play. Players had trouble playing on the outside of the lane and there wasn’t a lot of margin of error when playing inside.  Pair to pair were big differences, but once the oil pattern started to break down in the 3rd squad, then scores went through the roof.  Congrats to Bob Hansen for shooting 300  and also to Sean Ashley for a nice 299 games!

We want to welcome Andre Sandoval, Jason Lowery and Herb Grassl to the SFT AHT family! We hope you guys all had a good time in your first SFT AHT event.  Congrats to Eric Flick and Marcus Boner on being this weekend’s parlay power players! Marcus took it the furthest turning his $25 into a $270 3rd place finish!

Via Linda - 01/20/2018

Our event this weekend was at Brunswick Via Linda lanes and we had great turnout for our first Saturday event, with 91 total entries (61 qualifying and 29 economy parlay), 26 total cashers, a 1 in 3.5 cash ratio and paid out over $4,900.00 in main and side event prize fund.  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 didn't take the pattern long to break down and forced players further left. 

Glenfair Lanes - 01/14/2018

Our event this weekend was at Glenfair Lanes and we had another good turn out with 88 total entries (56 qualifying and 32 economy parlay), 26 total cashers, a 1 in 3.4 cash ratio and paid out just over $4,000.00 in main and side event prize funds. We were also excited to pay out $650.00 for first place since there were enough qualifying entries! The players bowled on a pattern, that I don't think we have bowled on too much, the 41ft Kegel Turnpike. This pattern is a bit different in the fact that it is medium pattern and also Glenfair Lanes had replaced the lanes earlier in the year.  It challenged bowlers to be make shots consistently and pick up spares.

Brunswick Mesa - 1/7/2018

Our event this weekend was the first of the 2018 season.  We had a big turnout for the season opener and saw 111 entries (80 qualifying and 31 economy parlay).  We had 28 cashers, a 1 in 4 cash ratio and paid out over $5,000.00 in main and side event prize fund.  The players bowled on the 38ft Alcatraz oil pattern that saw higher scores. It was a medium pattern where bowlers were able to play a variety of angles on the pattern.  Our cut scores were all above the +50 mark, which meant you had to bowl a little above your average to qualify.

We had some new bowlers join us for their first event at Brunswick Mesa.  We want to welcome Keith Ryan, Douglas Smith, Jonathan Jillson, Joshua Hancock, Cara Hamm, Andy Morin and Jerry Dasti who all bowled in their first event this weekend.  We hope you all had a good time and look forward to seeing you at our next event.

AMF McRay - 12/3/17

Our event this weekend was a big one with almost 100 entries in only 2 squads! We ended with 93 entries (66 qualifying and 27 economy parlay) had 27 cashers, a 1 in 3.5 cash ratio and paid out over $5,000.00 in main and side event prize fund. The players bowled on the 43ft Shark oil pattern that had pretty low scores. It was a long enough patter where missing to the outside normally meant the ball wasn't coming back, but wasn't long enough to create any kind of hold if you missed to the inside either. This forced players to be pretty accurate, but also allow them to play different parts of the lane. Our cut scores were all below the +30 mark, which meant that to advance didn't even require bowling over your average.

Brunswick Via Linda - 10/26/2017

Our event this weekend was at Brunswick Via Linda lanes and we had another great turn out with 108 total entries (81 qualifying and 27 economy parlay), 29 total cashers, a 1 in 3.6 cash ratio and paid out over $5,000.00 in main and side event prize fund. We were also excited to pay out $1,000.00 for first place since there were enough qualifyig entries! The players bowled on a pattern, that I don't think we have bowled on yet, the 48ft Brunswick Max. This pattern is a bit different in the fact that it is very long but doesn't use a lot of volume for the length. This creates an odd transition as the lanes "dry out" but they dry out in the middle and front part of the lane. This causes the ball too hook early, so you have to move left. However, with most patterns you can continue to loop the ball more and more as they get drier because there are enough boards with no oil on them for the ball to continue hooking.

Brunswick Tri-City - 11/5/2017

Our event this weekend was at Brunswick Tri-City lanes on the 40 foot Brunswick Edge oil pattern. We had 82 entries (24 economy parlay & 58 qualifying entries), 22 cashers, a 1 in 4 cash ratio and paid out over $4,000.00 in main and side event prize fund. The players were really able to play a variety of angles on the pattern. Some played straight and some curved it a bit more. The cut scores for the divisions were all pretty even, with the C division being a bit higher. The cut for the day averaged around +40 to +50 which is bowling a small amount over average per game.

We had some more new bowlers join us for their first event at Tri-City. We want to welcome Stephen Sharpe, Cornelia Todecozy, Andres Chagolla, and Jose Colunga all bowled in their first event this weekend. We hope you all had a good time and look forward to seeing you at the next event!

Mesa East Bowl - Standard

Our event this weekend at Mesa East Bowl was a two-squad standard, and sometimes that means less entries since there isn’t as many squads. Well it was jam packed with almost 50 bowlers per squad! We had a total of 93 entries (55 Qualifying & 28 Economy Parlay), 26 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 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. You have to get used to your ball fading back high flush until they start to break down a little bit.
