Congratulations to Casey Murphy on his exciting victory in our Fusion Realtors Open February 22&23. Casey qualified in the third spot for the finals and had to beat Rob Gotchall in the semi-finals before taking on top qualifier Troy Fuller in the final match. That last match was one of the most exciting final games ever in the history of the GIBA. Both bowlers made a number of high quality shots along the way to a 243-243 tie. The title was decided in a 9th & 10th frame rolloff which ended up 49-47 with Casey coming out on top. The complete results can be viewed by clicking on the schedule link at the top of this page and then clicking on Casey Murphy's name on the February Fusion Realtors Open spot in the schedule. I have also posted the final point standings for the GIBA 2013-14 season. Congrats to Mike Peters on his narrow win over Jacob Bedard for the point title. Thanks to the great sponsorship from Storm Bowling Products, we were able to give out prizes to the top 14 bowlers on the point list!! We also gave away two balls and one three ball roller bag to winners of our raffle at the Fusion Realtors Open, once again thanks to the sponsorship provided by Storm!!
Hard to believe another GIBA season is now behind us. I owe every bowler who supported our events this season a huge thank you for making this one of our most successful seasons ever!! It certainly makes the effort to coordinate the schedule and provide quality tournaments all worthwhile.
