Don Jackson Beats Tim Harkness To Win In Chulla Vista

Brunswick Premiere Lanes in Chulla Vista hosted another PBA Pattern 5-Gamer tournament this past weekend and though it was poorly attended those that showed up shoed up and bowled anyway.

Of the seven bowlers Don Jackson prevailed over Tim Harkness at -18 to -42 to take first place on the PBA Viper Pattern.  Jackson took home $225 despite the low tournout.  The next event at Chulla Vista will once again occur near the end of the month instead of the beginning on the 26th of August.  A better turnout should be expected.  Complete results of this tournament can be found on the tournament page from this blog.
