57th Florida State Championship Results

Mar 13, 2019 | Article

Prior to bowling we had enrolled 22 bowlers for the tournament this year but we had several bowlers drop prior to the end of qualifying for various reasons. Still we had a good competitive event throughout the doubles and singles competitions.

Things started out on Friday morning with George Holscher (VA) and Dave McGinnes (FL) capturing the Doubles crown over Rich Gabory (FL) and Chuck Karczewski (FL) in the pins over average format.

There was not a scratch division this year as the bowlers were split into an A and B division. There was an extra added challenge in the roll offs as the bowling center had committed to another party for extreme bowling, where they turn the house lights of and use loud music and strobe lighting. The participants chose to go directly into the roll off rather than wait till the party was over.

The A division pitted Rick Mahaney (LA) against Phillip Daniel (TX) with Mahaney advancing (204-172). Tournament director Wayne Webber successfully dispatched Mahaney (208-168) before losing to Brooks Martin (WV) 241-196. Brooks took on High qualifier George Holscher to capture the A champion (204-176). Congratulations Brooks. George had averaged 200.3 throughout singles.

In the B roll off Chuck Karczewski lost to his doubles partner, Rich Gabory (214-195). Gabory edged out Jim May (VA) by one pin, 219-218 advancing to face Deb Moulies (FL) who eliminated Rich (192-169). She also dispatched High qualifier Dave McGinnes in a very close match (221-219) to win her second consecutive B title.

Handicap honors went to George Holscher 755 HHS and Brooks Martin 289 HHG in A, Dave McGinnes 756 HHS and Rich Gabory 269 HHG in B. Brooks also took home most improved with +375 pins improved Congratulations to all the bowlers who won prizes this year.

My thanks to all the individuals who helped this year, our sponsors, Maryann, Kim, Sue & Nancy for 50/50, Belinda Formento for all her efforts and many others whose contributions helped in so many ways. I am grateful to Nancy and Dave for the scoring assistance as our official scorers. Lastly thanks to the bowlers who were able to participate this year.

Until next time,
