For the first tournament of the year. 24 men, 16 women. Everybody played three 15 point games. As there were more men bowlers than rinks available, games had to be staggered.
All winners won all 3 of their games. The place order was determined based upon the most plus points out of a maximum of 7 per game.
Bowling commenced at 8:50 am and the awards presentations finished at 4:00pm. Certificates were awarded to the winners.
The ninth and final LBLBC tournament of the season, the LBLBC Mixed Triples (Blind Draw) decided who the Bowler of the year was. Coming into the tournament, Abe Pinnella and Tom Richeson were tied with Christian de Taillac 20 points behind and Kole Carr 60 points behind.
3 teams ended up with 3 wins and no losses. Abe's team was the team with the most plus points.
Abe did all of this despite missing the next to the last tournament because he was at Nationals in San Francisco competing for the Men's Pairs prize.
I would say an all around stellar year for Abe.
