News from the “Pete”

UPDATED 8/12/2021 – Last week’s action at the Pete saw only one bowler move into the top ten. Kent Jacobson (Appleton, WI) put up a 1,607 eight game tally which was good enough for 4th place in the Singles Major category. Joseph Beck (Oregon, OH) still leads the Pete with his 1,635 score as we enter our final 30 days of competition.

There’s only 24 days until we close the infamous Golden Gates for the final time in 2021, but it will be a busy and interesting (as always) final few weeks. Next week is “PBA Week” at the Pete with PBA Tour Champ Toby Contreras hosting two squads on Monday, August 16, followed by the PBA / PBA50 Petersen Classic Midwest/Central Championship on Tuesday, August 17 and Wednesday, August 18. If you are in the area, stop by and watch the pros take on those challenging Pete lane conditions!

Even with just a few short weeks remaining, we still have openings available for full squads, small groups and individuals. Don’t get shut out at this year’s Pete!
