Tour co-sponsor Bob Holzbauer and Phoenix Pro Shop donated a Motiv Rogue bowling ball at cost, wpn by Gail Myers. Host center Schwoegler’s provided a lineage discount and added four $10 gift cards, won by Mark Newkirk, Jeff Sweeney, Rob Warren, and Jerry VanDenLengenberg. Total proceeds from these resulted in $222 added to the tournament’s prize fund. MAST extends a huge Thank You to Phoenix Pro Shop and Schwoegler’s Entertainment Center for their generosity.
Our next event will be at Village Lanes in Monona on Sunday, September 22nd at 11:30am. We will be using the 41-foot Kegel Tower of Pisa oil pattern for that event. We hope to see you all there.
