Deer Valley Results - 2/22/15

Our standard event this weekend was at AMF Deer Valley Lanes. The event drew 96 entries (55 qualifying and 31 economy parlay), 27 cashers, a 1 in 3.5 cash ratio and paid out over $4,000.00 in main and side event prize funds. The players bowled on the custom SFT pattern 40ft Death Valley pattern that proved to not be so deathly after all. The pattern was playable from all angles and yielded pretty high scores. Most of our cut scores this weekend were +100 or higher. Also, there were some players that really matched up well and went crazy! We had a few players go over +150 and even some that went over +200 so great bowling to all of you!

AMF McRay Results - 7/19/15

We had an awesome event today at AMF McRay Plaza lanes. The event drew 78 total entries (49 qualifying entries & 29 economy parlay entries), had 20 cashers, a 1 in 3.7 cash ratio and paid out over $3,000.00 in main and side event prizefund. The players bowled on the 43ft Dead Man's Curve oil pattern which proved to pay easier at times and harder at times. We had a very nice 300 game from Ron Schloss during our 10am squad that made it appear that the lanes weren't too tough but then our cut scores didn't really get too high, which most players being around +100 or lower. It was very clear however, that players that threw the ball alittle slower or liked to play in the middle of the lane a little bit had more success on this pattern.

Flipside Results - 12/6/15

It's hard to believe, but it was our final event of the 2015 season! It definitely didn't disappoint! We crowned tournament champions, season champions and saw exciting finishes. The players bowled on the 39ft Winding Road oil pattern that really allowed people to play a variety of places on the lane. The straighter players seemed to struggle a bit more, but there were some that still made it to the quarter finals. It appeared the best line was a small belly in the 15 to 8 range.

Brunswick Kyrene Results - 3/1/2015

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.

AMF Christown Results - 7/26/15

Our event was at AMF Christown this Sunday, and we had a great time as usual. It was  a standard event which means that it was guranteed $1,000.00 for first place regardless of entries as long as you are in the progressive pot. These events always have a certain level of hype behind them, and people are excited to bowl for that kind of money. The event drew 70 entries (48 qualifying entries and 22 economy parlay entries), had 18 cashers, a 1 in 3.7 cash ratio and paid out over $3,000.00 in main and side event prizes! The players bowled on a 41ft Turnpike oil pattern that proved to play a little difficult for most people. The average cut score didn't even require players to bowl over their average.

Brunswick Mesa Results - 3/8/15

I have to tell you, time is a funny thing. It was nearly two years ago that with every tournament, we were talking about breaking our last entry record. Even then, I thought to myself that the “record” talk has to inevitably come to an end. However, at the time I didn’t foresee our growth turning into format changes and the addition of our new Minor formats which are one day events. Because of that, we are ironically talking about “breaking records” again on a frequent basis. I suppose that is kind of a spoiler alert to the fact that our event this Sunday broke our one day event entry record again and was also our very first one day event to have over 100 entries! The event drew 108 entries, had 27 cashers , a 1 in 3.8 cash ratio and paid out over $4,500.00 in main and side event prizes!

AMF Deer Valley Results - 8/2/15

Our event this Sunday was at AMF Deer Valley lanes on the 39ft Winding Road oil pattern. The pattern may have been winding but it seemed to wind right into the pocket! We saw some of the highest scores we have ever seen! The players were able to play it almost like a house shot. They had free hook to the outside and a little bit of hold in the middle of the lane. It appeared that the most dangerous players were those that had slow ball speeds in the C division. Those players that were comfortable hooking it a little more had great ball reaction and some pins to make them tough to beat. However, once match play comes, you never know if those lower averaged bowlers will be able to keep their composure. The event had 58 total entries (40 qualifying & 18 economy parlay), 15 cashers and a 1 in 3.8 cash ratio. 

AMF Chandler Results - 3/15/15

Our standard event at AMF Chandler drew 96 total entries (59 qualifying entries and 37 economy parlay), had 27 cashers, a 1 in 3.5 cash ratio and paid out over $4,500.00 in main and side event prizes. The players bowled on a custom SFT pattern Warner Blvd. that was 43ft in length and yielded high scoring all weekend. We saw many runs at 300 games, an 800 series, and our highest 3 game total with handicap EVER! That story is an entertaining, yet brutal one that I will save for later!

Brunswick Kyrene - 8/9/15

This event was an awesome one! We had all kinds of exciting finishes and firsts. The event had 82 entries (49 qualifying entries and 33 economy parlay entries), 21 cashers, a 1 in 3.9 cash ratio and paid out over $3,000.00 in main and side event prizefunds. The players bowled on the 40ft Brunswick Edge pattern that had some very interesting results. The scores for the entire tournament were much higher in the A division then any other division. Typically this is the opposite as the scores are usually higher in either the B or C divisions. However, scoring well on the pattern had a lot to do with playing the correct part of the lane which most of the A division bowlers seemed to be doing. However, the cut was also inflated by a very impressive performance that Jason Satterlee put on. He had a very nice 846 during qualifying that cemented that he was bouncing back from his slump and looking to win back to back events.

Glenfair Lanes Results - 3/22/15

We had another fun and exciting event this weekend at Glenfair Lanes. There were a lot of other events going on this weekend so the turnout was a little lower than usual, but that didn’t stop us from having a great time! The event drew 65 entries (42 qualifying entries and 23 economy parlay), had 18 cashers a 1 in 3.5 cash ratio and paid out over $3,000.00 in main and side event prizes! The players bowled on a 45ft Kegel Route 66 pattern that proved to have fairly medium scoring. Most people could not play further out and the longer pattern forced people to play closer to third arrow. Straighter players could still do well, but they had to be straight at third arrow instead of first arrow. It was hard to argue that the lefties didn’t have good reaction since we had an all lefty final match!
