❗Thunderbowl Event Recap ❗

🎳Before I get to the Recap I'll mention our next event. Please help us Fill the Norwood event next Saturday. I'd really like to see 50 plus each squad. We have 38 at 11am and 39 at 4pm so far. I posted it late because of life events, so any help filling this event will be GREATLY appreciated. The Event link is at the bottom of this post🎳

✅ Wow what a event yesterday! We had 112 Bowl yesterday on what was a gourgous day outside. We got off to a rough start because we forgot our printer at home somehow 🤦‍♂️, something we NEVER do and as a result caused check-in to run slower. Thank you EVEYONE for your patience and understanding with Maggie and thanks to Dylan Call for helping her out when the line got long.

Yesterday we had alot of New bowlers in the mix and I was fortunate enough to chat with some of them and even some of our regulars. It's always a enjoyment talking to everyone and hearing when you all are having a good time.

🏆 The FINALS 🏆

Ken Johnson vs Chris Prater

Ken Johnson tried his best to overcome the 30 pins Chris had on him. He started off his game strong with two spares and a Turkey, taking him into the 6th frame.
Ken had the 30 pins covered and then some as in the 5th frame Chris prater had a Split and was unable to covert. With a already weak start.
The 6th frame however is where the match turned around as Ken Had a split in the 6th and the 7th and was unable to convert either one. Chris came back to capitalize and not only did he strike in the 6th and 7th, He didn't look back as he Punched out the rest of the game for a 234 and not even giving Ken Johnson a chance to battle back.

Sending Ken Johnson home with $200 l,

Chris Prater winning $400 plus a 1st place Trophy

Chris was on fire for yesterday. He has attended 3 of our events so far and has not made the cut for roll-off until yesterday.

Thank you to everyone who attended yesterday and continue to not only come back but bringing even more friends with them. We are trully amazed by the support and the help making this series to Grow. :-)
