NBA members from the last 4 out of the last 5 years were eligible for this event. After a slow start with the lanes that had to be re-dressed, we finally got moving and had some great scores. Alan Yamanaka from Mission Hills Bowl shot 300 in the first game of qualifying, Angela Koga 259/234 = 496, Kevin Kikuchi 267/259 = 526 and Kent Maruyama 246/277 = 523 for their two games of qualifying. We cut to the top eight teams. Jerry Gonzales’ team was top seed with 1853+188 = 2041 total. The cut score was 1607+172 = 1779 Bruce Van Aalst’s team. In the roll-off, Bruce Van Aalst’s team made it all the way to the finals. It was a close match between them and SFV Nikkei #2 with Vickie and Todd Niistuma, Julia Takeuchi and David Hayashida. Glenn Ito shot 266 that last game, but it just wasn’t enough for the win. SFV Nikkei #2 came out on top taking the title!
Thanks again to everyone who helped work the tournament and to everyone that participated!
