AMF McRay

AMF McRay - 11/14/2021

Our event this weekend was at AMF McRay lanes and had a pretty good turnout for a two-squad event considering that we didn’t start until over an hour later than schedule.  The center’s lane machine was having issues and we are thankful for everyone that stayed through the delay.  We had a total of with 82 entries for the event (49 qualifying and 33 economy parlays) and had 24 total cashers, a 1 in 3.41 cash ratio and paid out over $3,900.00 in main and side event prize funds. The players bowled on the very tough 44ft PBA Carmen Salvino oil pattern.  The bowlers that were able to keep repeating their shot and leave makeable spares would see the most success.  If you missed just a bit inside or out, then you ended up with a split or a tough spare.  The pattern would be high scoring to start, but has the day went on it seemed that the lanes go tighter.

AMF McRay - 9/19/2021

Our event this weekend was at AMF McRay lanes and had a nice turnout for a two-squad event considering that there was scratch event going on at the same time and also the first Cardinals home game of the year.  We had a total of with 68 entries for the event (41 qualifying and 27 economy parlays) and had 22 total cashers, a 1 in 3.1 cash ratio and paid out over $4,000.00 in main and side event prize fund. The players bowled on the very difficult Kegel 40ft Red Square oil pattern. This is Kegel’s version of the original U.S. Open pattern or the more commonly known PBA Bear oil pattern.  It is a very flat oil pattern that leaves practically no room for error and puts a premium on shot making and spare shooting. Since it’s not an extremely long or short oil pattern, players could play in many different places on the lane.

AMF McRay - 4/18/21

Our event this weekend was at AMF McRay and wow what an unbelievable turnout.  We drew a record breaking 143 total entries (94 qualifying and 49 economy parlay) for only 2 squads.  If you think about it, that was almost the same amount of entries that we had for our last 3 squad event at Bowlero Kyrene a few weeks ago.  We had 38 cashers, a 1 in 3.76 cash ratio and paid out over $7,500.00 in main and side event prize funds.

AMF McRay - 1/31/21

Our event this weekend was at AMF McRay lanes and had a great turnout for a two squad event with 108 entries for the event which is about 54 bowlers per squad. We had 67 qualifying and 41 parlay entries with 29 total cashers, a 1 in 3.7 cash ratio and paid out over $5,100.00 in main and side event prize fund. The players bowled on the very difficult Kegel 40ft Red Square oil pattern. This is Kegel’s version of the original U.S. Open pattern or more commonly known as the PBA Bear oil pattern. It is a very flat oil pattern that leaves practically no room for error and puts precedence on shot making and spare shooting. Since it’s not an extremely long or short oil pattern, many players could play in different areas on the lane.

AMF McRay - 10/25/20

Our event this weekend was at AMF McRay and wow…what a turnout.  We drew 126 total entries (87 qualifying and 39 economy parlay), had 33 cashers, a 1 in 3.81 cash ratio and paid out over $6,500.00 in main and side event prize funds. The players bowled on a 35ft Boardwalk oil pattern that played a bit harder than usual on the fresh.  This pattern can tend to be high scoring because it allows some miss room to the right if the bowler is able to get far enough to the right. Well, that did exist on some of the pairs, but other pairs didn’t have the same look.  The scores on the fresh pattern were a bit low but scoring exploded in the later squads with most bowlers shooting close to +70 to make the cut.
