This weekends event was a bit different than usual, as we started at 3pm instead of the usual 10am. The event had a pretty small turn out with 42 total entries (28 qualifying and 14 economy parlay), had 14 cashers and a 1 in 3 cash ratio. The players bowled on a 35ft Cheetah oil pattern that was much tougher then usual. The middle of the lane hooked a good amount like it normally does on Cheetah. However, the gutter, sometimes hooked like players expected and other times, did not. It definitely looked like most of the players who could play straighter around the first arrow did the best.
Regardless of the number of entries we always get new bowlers who come out to give the event a try. I’d like to welcome Bart Mullen and Francisco Martinez to the SFT AHT family. Neither of them had success, but we appreciate them coming out to give the event a try. Also, congrats to Derek Acuff on being the events only parlay power player.
