CAL DIEGO AWBA/PVA/GOLDEN STATE OPEN

On October 24th, 2012, posted in: Article by Comments Off

BAKERSFIELD, California was the place to be for the CAL DIEGO stop on the bowling trail.  A highly competitive collection of bowlers challenged a tough lane condition in this years tournament at AMF Southwest Lanes.  After twelve games of qualifying, many were ready to cry “Uncle” to the conditions of the lanes.

The BAY AREA PVA Doubles event opened the tournament on Friday afternoon with Stacy and Harvey Clowers taking the championship.  Stacy and Harvey are the only couple we have competing within the AWBA and a big “Congrats” goes out to the two of them for their great bowling.  Friday evening a great time was had by all in the Up/Down event.  Eddy Hutchens and his great team took top honors but the real winners were those that participated and made new friends from the Bakersfield area.  A big thanks goes out to those individuals who participated.

We wish to thank our major sponsors for this event for without them, putting on an event such as this would be very difficult.
