April Bud Pro Tour
By Tiffany Paschedag, ADA Representative
Amid all of the bad weather in St. Louis, with a tornado striking 5 days earlier we were still able to gather some people for our monthly Bud Pro Tour.
It was held on April 27, at Bottoms Up Brewhouse in O’Fallon. The crowd was small, but they got to throw more, which they enjoyed. Pro, Heather Lechner, threw a 13.5 average while Pro Paul Schaeffler threw a 24.3 average. Paul also racked up a Ton 80 and 4 Hat Tricks throughout the evening.
The Pros were undefeated until the last half hour when they lost 2 matches almost back to back. Overall they won 11 matches and lost only 2.
The final winners of the evening were ADA member Will Waldheuser and newcomer Dylan Roth. Dylan just came out to watch and cheer on his buddies but it didn’t take him much convincing to play once he saw how much fun everyone was having. Hopefully we can get Dylan on a league soon!
Thanks to everyone that came out to this month’s Bud Pro Tour and we’ll see you again next month. As soon as the location is determined we’ll let you know, but be sure to leave May 25th open on your calendar!
