On the weekend we held the 5th stop for the Wide Bay Tour, The Coca-Cola Doubles and what an Astonishing turn out it was with 69 Entries for this years event. This event has been the one to watch as absolutely any team was able to win the event, It was a very intense event where we had 4 squads of qualifying with teams being able to do more than 1 squad. After qualifying was completed the Top 8 teams based on pinfall were taken into the next round, To make the top 8 teams a 218.83 average was needed. I would like to especially congratulate our local bowlers who progressed into the Top 8. Duane Gilliland & Damien McAndrew (TATGC), Michael Burbidge & Eric Aarsse (Chicken Wings) were 2 local teams that made an impressive effort of tieing in 5th Place with our most successful local team KC Fechner & Brad Hales (Team 7 Board) made it all the way to the Semi Finals before being beaten by eventual Runner-Ups and last year’s Runner-Ups as well Darrin Comrie & Jon King (Your Shout).
But this years Champions for the 2014 Coca-Cola Doubles went to none other than (Team Storm) Brandon Qualischefski & George Frilingos with a 232.75 qualifying average nothing really looked like stopping them for the finals, So I congratulate George & Brando on their win and hope to see them back here again next year to take on next years challengers.
Just a special shout out to last years champions Brian Looby & Jason Scott, I wish Jason a speedy recovery get well soon man and hope to see you back here next year to take on George & Brando, For those who may not of heard Jason had a fall and has fractured his skull and 2 discs on his spine but I’m sure he’ll be back bowling in no time.
