13th Annual St. Paul Limited Average Mixed Team Challenge
The 13th Annual Limited Average Mixed Team Challenge was held on December 13th at Mattie’s Lanes in South St. Paul. This tournament is an all Baker Format style of bowling where the first bowler bowls the 1st and 6th frames, the second bowler bowls the 2nd and 7th frames and so forth. This year we had 32 teams in the tournament (32 lane center). The teams consist of 3 men and 2 women or 2 men and 3 women with a maximum combined average of 950 with a 90 % Handicap. The top prize of $600.00 for first place was not the only thing the teams were shooting for as we ran brackets during qualifying rounds and Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals were awarded for First, Second and Third respectively. Thanks to all who participated in brackets as we were able to have some nice payouts to our teams and were also able to cover our expenses.
During qualifying competition the highest game bowled was a 242 by Pizza’s in Game 6. Of the 32 teams, in the 10 games of qualifying, the lowest game was a 123 bowled in the 8th game. Just Follow That lead the qualifying round with an average of 198.9 in 10 games. The average to cash was 182.3 and the average to advance to match play was 184.6. Also during qualifying there was a prize of $125.00 for the first team to bowl a 300. Since that feat was not accomplished, we held a drawing for the non-cashing teams. The $125.00 went to Pro Bowlers.
At the end of match play, the team of Just Follow Anybody was in first place, Katie’s Bombers was in second and Just Follow That was in third.
In the stepladder finals, Katie’s Bombers bowled games of 167 and 163 for a total of 330 and Just Follow That bowled games of 207 and 196 for a total of 403 and advanced to the final championship match. In the finals, Just Follow Anybody bowled games of 174 and 155 for a total of 329 and Just Follow That bowled games of 227 and 171 for a total of 398 to win the 13th Annual St. Paul Mixed Team Challenge.
At this time we would like to congratulate the team members of Just Follow That: Phil Windschitl, Missy Windschitl, Matt Muellner, Christy Muellner and Rick Micek on their victory.
Thank you to all the bowlers who participated. Additionally, we would also like to thank Midway Pro Bowl, Mikes Pro Shop, On Track Pro Shop, Pearson’s Candy and the St. Paul Federal Credit Union for their assistance in making this tournament a success.
The 14th annual St. Paul Mixed Team Challenge is being planned for December 12, 2010 at a place to be announced in the future. Please pay attention to our website www.stpaulbowl.org for further information.
