2022 New Year’s Day Tournament
The 8th Annual Kingpin’s Alley New Year’s Day Tournament took place on Saturday, January 1, 2022. This year’s event drew a field of 74 bowlers who bowled 6 games, moving pairs after each game.
This year’s field featured three previous champions, Craig Schoonmaker, Steve Wagoner and three time defending champ, Brian LeClair.
The tournament pattern was a tough one this year. 40’ long and a 2.6:1 ratio made this a shot maker’s pattern that required solid execution. Of the 74 bowlers in the field only 21 ended on the plus side.
Jon Wilbur made his first appearance in this event and he made the best of it as he came away with an 89 pin victory to claim the coveted champion’s trophy and a $2000 payday. Jon had only one game below 200 on the day (his last) as he paced the field with a 230.83 average, 1,385 pins total.
Jake Rivers was second having posted a 1296 total (216.00 average). That was good for $1200.
Three time defending champ, Brian LeClair came out of the gate firing with a 276 game but he ended in 10th place with a score of 1,254.
