Bowlero Via Linda - 2/20/22
Our event this weekend was at Bowlero Via Linda, and we had another huge turnout for our 2-squad event! We would see a near record on our 1st squad with 73 bowlers! We had 129 total entries (92 qualifying and 37 parlays), 34 cashers, 1 in 3.79 cash ratio and paid out over $8,600.00 in main and side event prize funds! The players bowled on a 38ft PBA Mike Aulby oil pattern that was very misleading. Many of the bowlers would think that since there was more oil volume that it would play like a house shot, but with all the oil in the front of the lanes it made it very hard to swing the ball. Because the pattern wasn't very long or very short, it allowed players to attack it from all angles. The cut scores were pretty low with bowlers only needing to bowl a little over their average to advance to the quarterfinal round. The main key was to leave makeable spares and then pick them up.
