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.
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.
Our event today drew 68 entries (44 qualifying and 24 economy parlay), had 20 cashers, a 1 in 3.8 cash ratio and paid out over $3,000.00 in main and side event prize money. The players bowled on the 45ft Mexico City oil pattern that is one of the longer patterns we have used in a long time. 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.

Our event this Sunday was at Brunswick Desert Sky lanes. We had a good turnout with 60 entries (41 qualifying and 19 economy parlay), 15 cashers, a 1 in 4 cash ratio and paid out nearly $3,000.00 in main and side event prizefund. The players bowled on a very difficult 39ft Viper oil pattern. The scores were very low with practially no one doing a lot of striking, and the key to doing well being spares and mental focus. Most of the players that did well were straigther players, who were mentally tough and good spare shooters.
We want to welcome Sean and Jeremy Warren to the SFT AHT family. We are always excited to have new members and humbled to know that we are still getting new members at every event. A special congrats to Jeremy Warrent who made it to his first ever SFT AHT quarter finals in his first event. He beat his dad Sean by only 4 pins the first squad but re-entered and bowled a huge set to advance to the quarter finals.
