This weekend’s event was at Brunswick Tri City lanes. There were a lot of other events going on around town, but we were happy to get close to 70 total entries. The players bowled on the 36ft Johnny Petraglia oil pattern. It was an easy oil pattern as long as you could play the further outside part of the lane. It was very difficult to score well playing the middle of the lane, as it tends to be on shorter patterns. The cut scores at this event were much higher in the A division then the other divisions, but the average cut score to advance was around +60 with divisional insurance, so the scoring was to high. However, it seemed like each division had certain players who bowled really high and typically these were the players that were the most comfortable playing near or to the right of the first arrow.
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!
Our event this weekend was at Brunswick Tri-City lanes and had a great turn out considering there were 3 other tournaments going on the same day. We had 89 total entries (69 qualifying & 30 economy parlay) for 3 squads, 25 prize winners and a 1 in 3.5 cash ratio. The players bowled on the 43ft Brunswick Phantom oil pattern that was another very low scoring event. Players could play in just about any part of the lane, but there wasn’t a lot of margin of error and the pair to pair differences were also tough.
We were at Brunswick Tri City today and had another fantastic turn out! We had a total of 77 entries in two squads (50 qualifying entries & 27 economy parlay), 21 cashers a 1 in 3.8 cash ratio and paid out over $3,000.00 in main and side event prize fund. The players bowled on a very tough 32ft Wolf oil pattern that only has about half of the lane oiled. Those kind of league bowlers that get upset when there is “no oil on the lanes” aren’t the type for this pattern. However, the SFT is all about developing bowlers out of that line of thinking. Most of the players played to the right, near the gutter with the players that scored the best being around or right of the 1st arrow.
Our event this Sunday was at Brunswick Tri City Lanes and was a 2 squad event. Although the event was located a bit far away for most, that didn't stop the amazing SFT AHT family from coming out in a big way! There was nearly 40 bowlers per squad, which resulted in 76 total entries (44 qualifying entries and 32 economy parlay), 22 cashers and a 1 in 3.5 cash ratio that paid out over $3,000.00 in main and side event prizefund. The players bowled on a 43ft Shark Oil pattern that forced most players to play the middle of the lane due to the outside having a lot of oil and it being difficult to get the ball to return from the outside part of the lane. The cut scores were also very low through out the whole day in most cases not even requiring players to bowl their average to make it to the quarter finals.
