High Qualifier was Bill Froberg with 1536 total pin fall with an average of 256 after his first 6 games including an 816 series. Once again the 'HIGH QUALIFIERS CURSE prevailed with Bill going out out in the first game of Eliminations with his lowest game of his day. Go figure!
We had 48 bowlers in attendance this month. There were 7 SSS and 16 SS and 1 female with the rest of our seniors.
It took a total of 1342 and an average of 224 or better to make our regular cut line set by Jeff Kruzel.
We took 15 bowlers in our Elimination Rounds. This provided a little better than 1 in 3 cashing ratio for the tournament.
There were two honor scores this weekend. High Qualifier Bill Froberg shot 816 in his first 3 games of qualifying and we had a 299 game by Rick Parschen in his 5th game of qualifying. Jerome Clever had 11 in a row with his 297 in game 4.
