UPDATED AUGUST 21, 2018: This weekend’s action saw a new Singles Major leader emerge as Quinton Bohlen from Decorah, IA rolled a whopping 1,669 series during Saturday’s 8:30 AM squad. Even with a few untimely lane breakdowns, Quinton was on fire as he headed into game #8 (192-190-189-235-249-267-181) needing only a score of 80 to take the lead. A score of 166 – his lowest of the set – gave him an 87 pin cushion over Luke Voaklander (St. Bonafacius, MN) who is now in second place.

Starting on Wednesday, August 22, we’ll have daily squads for 7 consecutive days before we head into the final squads over Labor Day weekend.

Time is winding down for this year’s Pete, but we do still have openings available for single bowlers, groups and full squads. You can get more info by sending an email to or by calling Jim Welch at (214) 704-3531. We hope to see you at the Pete!
