Badger Pro Shop provided a Storm Phaze bowling ball at cost, won by Joe Johnson. Host center Viking Lanes provided an additional lineage discount, donated one entry into their 8-Pin Tap Team Tournament ($125 value, won by Dustin Trejo) and also added three $10 gift cards, won by Johnson, Joe Janz, and Chris Pierson. Tour sponsor M&J Truck and Auto Repair also added $200 to the tournament prize fund. Combined this resulted in $600 added to the tournament’s prize fund.
