Hoffman wins Viking Lanes Title

Mike Hoffman defeated defending champ Kevin Punzel to win the 2012 Viking Lanes MAST title!  Hoffman bowled 259 over Punzel’s 202 to earn $443 while Punzel received $244 for second place.  Hoffman also Bet to Win on himself which earned him another $80 for the win. 

The tournament drew 48 bowlers to complete on Viking’s house condition.  The lanes were challenging which resulted in 869 or better to make it to match play.  Thanks to a new sponsor, New York Life Insurance Company via Herb Kimpel, the prize fund for a 49th bowler was paid for to allow for cutting to the top 16 rather than the top 12.  Kevin Thompson led qualifying with a 978 to earn 25 extra bonus points.

Sponsors for the tournament were Viking Lanes and Badger Pro Shop.  Viking lanes donated a portion of the lineage back to the prize fund, a ball and four $10 gift cards to the drawing, and offered up $100 to the first 300 of the day.  Unfortunately, a 300 was not bowled during the tournament.  The ball was won by Matt Gannon and the gift cards were won by Lauren Sammel, Dan Seppa, Chad Kuehmichel, and Dennis Farmer Jr.
