Our version of Paradise

Oct 9, 2023

On Saturday, 37 bowlers laced up to take on the PBA Earl Anthony pattern. We were able to pay 9 spots with 10th getting our free entry. We only had one 300 shot as Michael Rachal did that in game 5.

Our winner was Ethan Collier averaging a massive 262.8 for his 5 games while Bradley Smith bowled for free on Sunday with a 5 game total of 1099 (219.8 average).

On Sunday, we tried our luck again and 40 bowlers came ready to beat Earl Anthony. Scores were higher than normal (its becoming an common theme lately) but we only had 1 game over 250 during qualifying (Allen Crain, game 4, 255).
Our leader going into the bracket was Brian Locke at 1124 with Bryant Griffith also receiving a one round bye with a 1046.Our bracket saw some good matches, including a front 9 by Chris Moore.

In the end, was Milligan’s own Bryant Griffith taking home the title by the slimmest of margins…maybe 6 inches to the right of the 10 pin.

Don’t forget: Our Carolina’s series is over, but we have 4 major tournaments coming up in Nov and December.

Nov 3rd: No Tap at Western Ave in Knoxville, TN at 7p. Entry fee: $60
