Our season opener of 2020 was an awesome one! We were at Bowlero Via Linda and we had 100 entries, 27 cashers, 1 in 3.8 cash ratio and paid out over $4,000.00 in main and side event prize fund! The players bowled on a 40ft Athens pattern that was very misleading. Many of the bowlers would think they had it figured out and had a good shot and then they would move pairs and find it hard to find that same shot again. Because the pattern wasn't very long or very short, it allowed players to attack it from all angles. We had straighter players do well and players that like to cover more boards and curve it more. It was a great turnout and a lot of fun in our season opener.
This weekend’s event was at Bowlero Via Linda and had a pretty good turnout. We had a total of 89 entries (63 Qualifying & 26 Economy Parlay), 24 cashers, with a 1 in 3.7 cash ratio and paid out over $4,700.00 in main and side event prize funds. The players bowled on a very tough 38ft Alcatraz oil pattern that had medium to low cut scores for most of the day. Most divisions took in the +30 range to advance, which means that they only had to bowl about 15-25 pins over average for the entire series, which is bowling a small amount over your average each game. The medium length pattern allowed players to play a variety of angles including down and in and deep inside angles. The key to this shot was leaving makeable spares, so if you got it a little too far outside too early, then your ball would over hook for a split or if you got too far outside too late, then your ball roll out and leave a washout.
