Sunday 8th July 2018

First of all I want to thank everyone who made the trip up to a very hot Shipley Lanes. We had some high scoring in the event; we used our Kegel Flex to put down the 2017 Weber Cup pattern Long Sword with Fire conditioner on our high friction Xima lane surface.

A huge thank you needs to go to everyone who sponsored this event, B&P Fabrications, Striking Shirts, Shipley Tenpin Bowling LTD, Shipley Bowlers Club & MCM Dental.

I would like to congratulate the winners of this year’s doubles event. The Team Pin Heads 1 who consisted of Peter Agate & Matty Clayton, Matty also was the highest average over qualifying with a whopping 232.83. A huge well done to both of them.

The Tournament averages were as follows:
Qualifying (48 bowlers x 6 games) – 191.6
Semi Finals (24 bowlers x 3 games) – 183.4
Round Robin Final (12 bowlers x 5 games) – 189.9
Total Tournament (420 games) 189.97
