Record Setting Crowd at Triad

Jun 5, 2023

A record setting crowd showed up to Triad this past weekend to compete on our Radium pattern.

On Saturday we had 24 bowlers come out, with Joshua Atkinson taking the title with a 5 game total of 1116. We paid 6 spots and 7th place got a free entry into Sunday’s scratch tournament.

Our top 7 were:
1. Atkinson – 1116
2. Allen Crain – 1114
3. Chris Glaz – 1084
4. Chris Miller – 1083
5. Tommy Hegedus – 1063
6. Vinny Stasi – 1058
7. Ian Habiuk – 1000

On Sunday, after some approach issues, we were concerned about our numbers, and our concerns held true as only 22 bowlers showed up to try Radium again.

We advertise that a minimum of 6 bowlers will make match play, so we kept to that and our cut was -11 for 5 games. That place belonged to Allen Crain, while Mike Ward led the field with a 1033.

In the first round: Mark Dixon def Drew Crain 277-171 and Kevin Donovan def Allen Crain 185-181
In our final four: Mike Ward def Dixon 177-142, and Jason Conner def Donovan 235-202.
Our finals put good friends from Virginia against each other, with Mike Ward coming out on top (183-162) to secure his FIRST Bracket Challenge title.

Thank you all for choosing us this weekend! We truly do appreciate all of your continued support.
