ABT offers a CHALLENGE & COMPETITION!!!

Our Branch alone has paid out over $16,206,093.00.

_________________________________________________________________

We are saddened by the loss of a friend and loyal supporter of the Amateur Bowlers Tour, Mr. James Evans. Jim joined the ABT in the 1980's and was there every weekend bowling and watching until he injured his wrist. He then would occasionally pop in now and then until he was no longer able to come out. He had quite a few Championship Titles throughout the years. God bless you Jim and your family. Rest in peace!

Funeral services will be December 13th at Francis Funeral Home, 5201 Whitby Ave., Philadelphia, PA Viewing 9 am - 11 am - Service at 11 am.

30TH ANNIVERSARY EVENT"

The end of September 2016 marks Andy Mitchellís 30th Anniversary running the ABT franchise tournaments in the Philadelphia/Delaware Branch. When he bought this branch from Roland Pepin, the entry fee was only $26.00 with $1.00 high game pots per game. There were six squads on Saturday with four games per squad. The Semis and Finals were held on Sunday with a re-entry squad on Sunday morning for those bowlers that bowled on Saturday. In order to make the Semis they had to beat the cut score from Saturday. In addition, there was only one Division of 189 average and under.

September 27-28, 1986 was Andyís first tournament held at Facenda Whitaker Lanes, Norristown, PA. There were 171 entries. The menís cut was -25 and the womenís cut was -29. Ron Shemeley won for $800.00 with a 178 average.

February 28-29, 1987 (Leap Year) was the first Delaware tournament held at Price Lanes, Wilmington, DE. There were 300 entries. The menís cut was +41 and the womenís cut was +16. Hank Stiehl won for $1,000.00 with a 169 average.

In 1995, ABT added the Master Division at 190-220. Shawn Boyd was the first Master member in the Philadelphia Branch to join. There were separate prize funds for both divisions. The first tournament was March 10-12 at Conchester Lanes, Boothwyn, PA. Friday night squads were added. There were 32 Master entries and 214 Classic entries. Master cut was +12 - Classic cut was +18 and Womenís cut was +3. John Disantis won the Master Division for $400. Tim Murr won the Classic Division for $1,000. Entry fee was $30 for Classic and $50 for Masters. There was also a 285 pot offered for $1.00.

In 1998 Andy took over the South Jersey Branch and started running two tournaments per week; one in South Jersey and one in Pennsylvania/Delaware.

For eleven years (2000 Ė 2010) Andy also ran the ABT National Tournament in Las Vegas and Reno which included Showboat, Castaways, Samís Town, Reno Hilton and The Stadium. There was a Spring and Fall tournament and ABT members from all over the country came to bowl for a much larger prize fund. Optional tournament events were also available such as, Doubles, Scratch, and Seniors for an additional fee.

There have been a few changes and adjustments made since starting out, but the main objective to running these tournaments has been and always will be a love for the sport, as well as a love for the participants; many of whom he has come to see as his extended family. By running the ABT tournaments, Andy has offered many bowlers the challenge and opportunity to compete and socialize with others who enjoy bowling throughout the years. The Amateur Bowlers Tour is the largest bowling organization in the country and has been around since 1977. Our branch alone has paid out over $16,206,093.00.

ABT thanks all our members for their continuous support. This is a great tournament organization where you can definitely help improve your bowling skills as you learn to adjust on different and tougher lane conditions throughout the Tri-State area. We look forward to seeing you at our 2016 events.
