Wow!! The championship match was one for the RBT history book. Stoney Baker, Kyle Hartzell, and Lee Vanderhoef put on a clinic for the large crowd of spectators, exchanging strikes in succession. The bowler with the highest score would be our champion, only problem was... Kyle and Lee finished tied at 247 each and Stoney 238. We had a 9th and 10th frame roll off and in the end Lee Vanderhoef stood victorious winning the RBT 2014 Season Kick Off Event. Congrats to all of these guys for capping off an exciting event in dramatic fashion. Kyle was runner-up and Stoney finished 3rd.
Kyle Hartzell lead the field of bowlers during qualifying and took home an extra $100 and a Bowlers Express bowling jersey. Our top three winners also, won a pair Stability Strikes performance socks for their great bowling.
Congrats also to Lee Bowlin of Charlotte, NC for shooting a nice 300 and to all of our prize giveaway winners including J.J. Anderson for winning the RotoGrip Hyper Cell Bowling ball.
The RBT thanks the total 85 bowlers and numerous spectators that traveled from near and far to make this an event to remember, we appreciate your commitment and support of the RBT.
A special thanks to Ralph Solan and STORM Bowling our season long ball sponsor for their continued support. Also to Johnnie Jackson-Bowlers Express Pro Shop and Jay Brewer-Stability Strike Performance Socks for their contributions to RBT and our loyal supporters.
