The Northeast Amateur Tournament’s current newsletter reports Dale Doody & John Bekish as the champions of the regular season-ending doubles event at Westgate Lanes, defeating Coke league bowler Barry Muise and his partner Jim O’Neil by a score of 984-886 (with handicap) in the two-game final match. Other Westgate bowlers cashing were Stan Lewis & Tom Hedding, Paris Cook & Ralph Dahlgren, Tina Gannon & Bill Briggs, Chuck Paige II (with partner Jim Handy), and Matt & Sean Richard.

There was a 290 game during qualifying, bowled by Jeff Wilson, but it needs to be noted that he had the first 11 rather than the more normal back 11.

The NAT has also announced on Facebook that their August 14 tournament will take place at the brand new Wamesit Lanes in Tewksbury, with qualifying taking place in the main bowling center and the head-to-head finals in the Pow Wow Room. Unless I miss my guess, this will be the first tournament Wamesit Lanes hosts.
