Congratulations to Jason Becher on winning his first MAST title! In the final match, Becher defeated Larry Van Natta, 252 to 225, to take home $384. Van Natta received $204. This was one of two tournaments this season to use the Survivor format. Van Natta and Becher qualified second and third, respectively, both receiving a bye for the first Survivor round. They then went on to survive two more rounds before meeting each other in the championship match. Van Natta bowled games of 267, 247, and 289 for an 803 during qualifying and added a 298 his third game of match play. Becher had a 300 during his third game of qualifying.

The Wildcat tournament drew 37 bowlers and was competed on the USBC Blue shot. Thanks to Herb Kimpel and the sponsorship from New York Life Insurance Company, an additional 2 spots were paid to allow for a cut to the top 12 bowlers rather than the top 8. It took a 909 over four games to make the cut. Dan Swenson led qualifying with 1015 and will receive 25 extra bonus points. All bowlers will also receive 25 bonus points for the challenge condition. Along with the honor scores previously mentioned, Jeff Prein bowled a 300 his last game of qualifying.

Other sponsors for the tournament were Wildcat Lanes and Badger Pro Shop. Wildcat Lanes threw an extra $75 into the prize fund from reduced lineage and gave three $10 gift cards to the drawing. Badger Pro Shop donated a Storm IQ Tour Pearl at cost. Brent Ritchie won the ball and Shannon Dins, Tom Smyth, and Nick Schroeder won the gift cards.
