East Meadow, NY: The LIGBT made a summer stop at AMF East Meadow and a great crowd of 121 bowlers competed for more than $4,000 in prize money. At the end of the day the bowler with the winner’s trophy and the $1,000 top prize was Alex Padmore, Jamaica, NY. This was Alex’s second LIGBT title and his first in over a year.
The final shootout was an exciting one as Alex secured his title with a mark in the tenth frame which gave him a 229 handicap game. Finishing second was Fermin Diaz, New York, NY with a 207 worth $500. Third place went to Tony Gee, Floral Park, NY who earned $250 with a 191. Tony was the 3pm squad leader with an amazing 820 handicap series.
