Late Saturday evening the 12th Annual Buffaloe Lanes Team Championship Tournament wrapped up with “Typical Sam” from Buffaloe Lanes Cary taking home the trophy and a check for $5,000.
But this tournament is about so much more than just the $20,000 prize fund. The annual tournament sponsored by the owners of Buffaloe Lanes is a league bowler benefit for bowling at one of the Buffaloe Lanes Centers. Every league bowler has an opportunity to win a free entry into the tournament or they can purchase an at-large entry.
This season’s tournament was the first for members from the newest Buffaloe Lanes location in Mebane, NC. Buffaloe Lanes Mebane had a good showing with 8 teams participating in the tournament and they look forward to many more teams joining in the fun next year.
More than 100 teams (5-person) bowled over the two-day tournament with hopes of taking home a portion of the prize fund. But outside of the tournament prize fund there were lots of other opportunities to win cash & prizes.
Excitement is an understatement….
Terry Lewis rolled a single strike worth $600 in the Skins Game, which is played after the last squad bowls and while the final results are being calculated. 10 bowlers are selected and each at least has a chance at $100!
While the competition is intense…
the spirit of the tournament is FUN and EXCITING!
The staff works hard putting this tournament together each year and in the end it is all worth it. Not only do the bowlers have a weekend of food, fun and friendly competition but, the Buffaloe Lanes family and staff takes this opportunity to show their appreciation to the league bowlers for choosing Buffaloe Lanes as their home for bowling!
Everyone is already looking forward to the 2014-2015 Buffaloe Lanes league bowling season and the 13th Annual Buffaloe Lanes Team Championship Tournament next year at Buffaloe Lanes North.
