Sean Yonan Weekend Recap!

Well it was a packed full weekend of bowling and hanging out with some great people. Friday was a celebrity baker tournament and my team ended up qualifying in the lower division and ended up winning all of our matches and won the tournament. I threw the ball okay all day Friday and it wasn’t a serious tournament it was just to donate money to the cause and the event.

Saturday was a different event and was all singles all day. I dug a major hole in the first game and was dead last in the first game. I shot 124 but then proceeded to find a look and my repeat ability was so good. like I said I shot 124 but then proceeded to shoot 267,250,212,221 to go 150 over for the last 4 to get me at +74 to make the cut. It was the first time I have made the cut in a singles event in awhile and it felt good to make it. I bowled my teammate Josh and the pair was so messed up that neither of us had a look and both struggled. He ended up beating me but I won 135$ and had a lot of fun while bowling.

Today I bowled the adult tournament and it didn’t go so well the first 3 games. I struggled to repeat a shot and my look wasn’t great all day. I ended up finishing -25 which is a lot better than what I was the first 3. I shot back to back 230 games to get myself to -25 so I will take that number instead of what I had.

I had a great weekend bowling and hanging out with friends. Also bowling and giving money to the family for a good cause is always worth it no matter how good or bad I bowl. It was a great weekend and I look forward to it next year as we do it all over again.

Sean Yonan Memorial

This weekend I am back in action again and bowling one of the biggest youth tournaments in the US. Other than Nationals for Jr. Gold this tournament is one of the biggest around. This tournament gives out thousands of dollars a year to one person who wins the tournament. Friday will be a celebrity event and we will all bowl with pros during certain frames. Saturday is either a youth or college event and depending on your age you will be put into a certain area. They both give out lots of money and it is one of the best weekends ever. Sunday will be a adult event and yet again they hand out lots of money.

Last year I missed Sunday’s cash spot by 1 pin and it really opened my mind and made me realize what is really important within bowling. This year I want to make cut in both events and bowl rather well. Since I haven’t been bowling well in events recently and its rather frustrating. This event is an amazing event and it is for a great cause for this family.

This event is held every year to raise money for a family that lost their father. All the money goes towards the kids for college and they hand out some as well. Winning isn’t just about the money but it is the pride of winning a prestigious event. I practiced this last Sunday and today, yet again I feel prepared and ready for the tournament but lets just hope that the pins fall my way this weekend.
