Dennis tightens the Noose on Loose, wins 2nd BBT title in three weeks

Runner-up Andy with 2 time BBT Champ Dennis

Just when you think you are washed up, finished, Kaput, (like the Cubs) you resurrect yourself, buy a new ball and start to bowl great. Even if you are an old fart, in fact one that farts dust...it can be done and that is what Dennis has accomplished in the last few months.

After not winning a BBT Tournament for almost 2 years, Dennis has now won 2 titles in three weeks!!! tightening the noose around PBA Regional Champions Andy Loose twice, winning the Senior/Junior event Wednesday at River Rand Bowl.

The event featured a 2 game qualifier for the Young Guns and Old Farts, one match game and the finals. Here is how it played out:

Andy continued his great bowling shooting 470 scratch for 2 and Justine backed her way into the semi's with a 197/170. Kevin and Battersby, couldn't capitalize on decent starts.

In the old fart category, Lou V would have qualified but did not bowl so we had some semi-old farts in that division trying to make the finals:

Old Fart Semi-Finals - great match. Dennis needed a double to close out Rob, got the first one and left the door open for Rob who steps up in the 10th and the picture says a thousand words:
