Report

Well another BTBA Tour Stop comes to an end. Firstly we would like to thank the 40 bowlers who supported this event. The format was; first round 6 games, cut to 50% of the field for a second round of 4 games, then cut the field again by 50% for a 4 game final round. We put down Stone Street as the oil pattern for the day which is 42ft long with a total volume of 23.15 units and a ratio of 10.50 at the arrows and track area. After watching the Adult Counties play at the centre the week before on Stone Street (which seemed to hold up reasonably well throughout the day) we were hoping the same for this event but as we all know in bowling the only guarantee is there is no guarantee, this being true they played very differently from the start but being the troopers the Seniors are they played the condition to the best of their ability.

 The first 3 games saw Paul Walker leading the men with 184, 257, 240 717 with Nev Robinson 2nd 245, 216, 183 689 followed by Steve Gould 224, 189, 244 678 in 3rd.

The ladies were lead by Sandra Boswell 166, 179, 212 579 with bonus, Jan Hodge 2nd 205, 148, 192 572 with bonus and Catherine Wills 3rd 141, 203, 185 538 with bonus.

At the end of the sixth game things were slightly different although Paul Walker still lead the field with 1404, Stephen Bose came storming up the list shooting 237, 258, 257 1382  with Nev Robinson dropping to 3rd 1346 . In the ladies division Sandra kept her top position totalling 1138, Liz Griffin came through strong bowling 206, 179, 180, 186 1132 and Catherine Wills held 3rd with an overall score of 1118. The cut for the men was 16 and went to Keith Hodge shooting 1218. The ladies cut was Angie Brown with a 1098.

After a re-dress the 16 men and 5 ladies played round 2. Again the bowlers were jockeying for the top positions. Paul Walker kept up the pace with an high game of 268 in the ninth game to remain top with 2381, but Lol Ellis was on fire shooting a block of 237, 236, 207 299 the twelfth ball came in a little high nudging the 4 pin but not enough to fall over, total 2347, this placed him in 2nd. Mike Sykes also had a good set of 245, 257, 225, 206 2321 which moved him up from 5th to 3rd.

The ladies found the dry lanes a little tougher but kept closing frames to hit steady scores. Jan Hodge remained 1st with 1933, 2nd Catherine Wills 1913 and Angie Brown 3rd 1907. At the end of round 2 the men cut to the top 8 bowlers, this was Alan Jenkins who finished ninth with 2155 but was promoted to 8th due to Alan Jordache retiring. The ladies cut to 3, Jan Hodge, Catherine Wills and Angie Brown. After another re-dress the final 4 games began. There were no massive sets in this round but like he had done all day Paul Walker stayed steady to take the men’s title with Jan Hodge doing likewise to claim the ladies title. The final standings were:

 

Men                                                             Women

Paul Walker    3258                                  Jan Hodge         2706

Lol Ellis           3186                                  Catherine Wills  2663

Stephen Bose 3166                                 Angie Brown      2651

Nev Robinson 3148

Mike Sykes     3135

Barry Walker   3064

Mo Singleton   3010

Alan Jenkins    2983

 

We would like to thank Adam and all the staff at MFA Bowl Nuneaton for looking after us and a special thank you to Nikki Harvey who put the scoring package together and inputted the scores along with generally assisting throughout the day.
