JACK KAMPF ENJOYS HOME COOKING!

Posted On: October 28, 2019

Levittown, NY:  Jack Kampf, a 55-year old truck driver from Levittown, NY, won the $1,000 top prize at LIGBT’s house shot tournament hosted by Levittown Lanes. Jack’s home bowling center is Levittown and he took full advantage of the “local knowledge” to capture his 4th LIGBT title in 7 years. In the final shootout Jack defeated 2nd place finisher Julio Arnold, Woodside, NY 256-227. While Julio earned $500 for his runner-up position, finishing in third was Darryl Freeman, Forest Hills, NY with a 220 worth $350. Rounding out the top 4 was Anthony Cotter, Bellmore, NY with a 197 worth $300.

The final shootout started out strong as all 4 bowlers had a double by the third frame. Darryl had the lead in the 5th frame as he was the only bowler to stay clean the first half of the match. Jack’s victory run started in the 6th frame where he struck the next 4 out of 5 frames to lock up the match. Julio could have won the title if he had tripled in the final frame. But a ringing 10 pin cost him the chance at the title.

The Levittown house shot event drew a nice crowd of 86 entries (79 handicap/7 scratch), advanced 14 bowlers to the handicap finals and paid out a total of $3,900.

The final shootout was dominated by Dawn and Archie. Although Dawn was getting 21 pins in handicap from Archie, she didn’t need a single one as shot beat him scratch by one pin! Dawn started the match with 4 strikes, and then after an open frame in the 5th, threw another 4 strikes in a row to hold off a late run by Archie. Archie threw the only clean game in the shootout, and finished with 6 in a row, but still fell 12 pins short of his 5th title.

The AMF E. Meadow event drew a great crowd of 100 entries, advanced 14 bowlers to the finals plus cashed another 12 for $75 (better than 1 in 4.) The total prize fund paid out was $4,650. The cut scores on the “Boardwalk” pattern were: 653 & 670. High series of the tournament was shot by Stanley Waite, Dover, DE in the 1pm squad with a 726. The wildcard winner was Andrew Mienkiewicz, Dix Hills, NY with a 1350 six-game series. One woman was added to the finals due to the women guarantee and that was our champion Dawn who qualified with a 687.

ADAM DEROSSI WINS 4TH TITLE AT AMF WANTAGH

Posted On: October 07, 2019

Wantagh, NY:  Adam DeRossi, a 35-year old IT Director from Massapequa Park, NY won the $1,000 top prize at LIGBT’s sport shot event at AMF Wantagh. Adam earned his 4th LIGBT title in 4 years by defeating Jimmy Walsh, Glen Cove, NY 235-230 in the final shootout. While Jimmy earned $500 for second, finishing third was Sal Florindo, Forest Hills, NY with a 228 worth $300. Rounding out the top 6 was 4th place finisher Mike Simeone, Lindenhurst, NY with a 214 worth $250, 5th went to Hari Soedarmasto, Levittown, NY with a 197 earning him $225 and 6th place went to Archie Nabis, Queens Village, NY with a 187 worth $200.

A 6-bowler shootout is tough to win, and Adam was up to the task as he was the only bowler not to have an open frame in the final shootout. Adam’s steadiness, and a double in the middle of the game, gave him a 5-pin victory. Adam was also clutch as he needed a mark in the final frame to secure his $1,000 victory. Jimmy also bowled great and only had one open but needed a double in the 10th to force Adam to double. Sal, who will be 80 year’s old in a few months, almost won his 3rd title. When Sal doubled in the 10th frame he forced Jim and Adam to mark.

The AMF Wantagh event drew a nice crowd of 85 entries, advanced 11 bowlers to the finals plus cashed another 11 for $75 (better than 1 in 3.) The total prize fund paid out was $3,800. The cut scores on the Broadway pattern were:  654 & 673. High series of the tournament was shot by 4th place finisher Mike Simeone with a 741 in the 3pm squad. The wildcard winner was Donald Eubanks, Elmsford, NY with a 1322 six game series.     

LIGBT’s next tournament is a sport shot event at AMF E. Meadow on Sunday, October 20th (1pm & 3pm) featuring top prizes of $1,000 & $500.  To view the final results of the AMF Wantagh event please visit www.ligbtour.com.
