Six ex-champions will be among the largest field ever when the Shack Super Bowl XXIX takes place at 4 p.m. Saturday at Landmark Lanes.
“With 60 bowlers in the tournament for the first time, the field is wide open and any one of them could be the winner,” tournament director Charles Filteau said.
Dennis Peterson, last year’s winner and pin fall record holder at 1,489, will not be defending his title, but among the favorites returning will be Mitch Meyers, who set a Shack Super Bowl three-game record last year with an 825. He also set the Twin Ports three-game series record earlier this year at 867.
Six past champions are also among the field, including Jason Sigfrids, Carl and Spike Mencel, Dennis McDonald, Bob Gucinski and three-Time champ Pat Erickson.
“While Mitch may be the favorite, it will be anyone’s tournament,” Filteau said.
Nineteen of the bowlers have an average of over 220, including: Todd Sorensen, 233; Spike Mencel and Matt Meyers, 228; Joe Marciniak, 227; Pat Erickson, 226; Darren Hietala, 224; and Mitch Meyers, 223.
This year’s prize fund is more than $3,000 in cash spread out over the top 24 bowlers, six pot games, six high on pairs and the strike tournament.
The “300” fund is at $1,000 for the first person to roll a perfect game. Brackets are available to all bowlers who wish to enter.
a fundraiser for the Superior Youth Bowling association will be held during the Shack Super Bowl. The top prizes are: two Tony Yaworski prints, donated by Downs-LeSage Funeral Home, and two bowling balls, donated by Village Lanes and Landmark Lanes. There are also a lot of other prizes donated by local area merchants.
The public is invited to attend and admission is free of charge.
