I'm guessing you mean for this year Wheelie?

Quick research tells me that it's +315 Greg Flamand.

What about the record? I was thinking it was Andy Lomato(sp?) at 1415 or something in that range.

I recall Brian B shooting a ridiculous 5 game set at East Haven years back . Might have been 1418 with a Urethane Hammer. Not sure if it was a burgundy or blue one.

I have 1413 by Andy Lomanto in 2001. My stuff only goes back to 1995 though.

I think Brian B's took place in 1990. I will ask Webb he would know.

Re: High qualifying block record

Postby BRIAN B » Mon May 16, 2011 6:49 pm

I just wanted to clarify that the 5 game set that is being talked about in this thread was not bowled in a NEBA tournament. I won my first NEBA in East Haven in March of 1990 with a Faball Urethane Blue Hammer against my old friend Rich Garner who now lives in Florida. I also bowled an 840 series at Circle Lanes-East Haven (House record at that time and my personal high) with a Brunswick Teal Rhino Pro in April 1993 in the first 3 games of an 8 game house tournament marathon. Back to the subject, the tournament was an AMF World Cup qualifier held at AMF Circle Lanes in East Haven, CT. They had these qualifiers all over the country in AMF owned houses to try and qualify for the Natioanl Finals of the AMF Coca-Cola World Cup I think it was called. I believe it was a 1 in 10 ratio advanced to the next round and on this particular night we had 2 qualifiers. I think it was me (+525 give or take a few pins) and Dave Forcier who advanced. Scott Santos (+440 guestimate) and Ernie Koopman (+397, I clearly remember this number) were 3rd and 4th respectively. Scott actually contacted ABC and he submitted my score to them, and ABC gave me credit for the 5 game national record. The Sunday night squad was a 10 game qualifier and the first 5 games I bowled I shot around plus 110 with the Teal Rhino. The last 5 games I switched to an Ebonite (Purple) Nitro R squared and I moved into 2nd arrow. I all of sudden had swing and hold thanks to the NYNEX phonebook shim and I was able to carry on the china for remainder of the evening and I finished with that score. If I remember correctly Charlie McConnell eventually advanced all the way to the World Cup finals this same year and won it on TV.

Someone should definitely submit Andy Lomanto's score to the USBC. I don't remember what he shot exactly but I do remember he bowled it at Milford in a NEBA tournament. I am 100% sure it is the score that Joey was referring to above as the NEBA 5 Game Qualifying record. Andy definitely has that record.

I just came back from the the USBC's/Reno and nice bowling to several NEBA members this year. For starters, Bill Webb and Chris Viale (Cambridge 1 Team/Team All-Events), Tony Bennett (300 game), Stephen Dale Jr (Singles), Mike Lichstein (All-Events), Mike Colby (current BTM 1-2-3 Singles leader), Nick Dean (current Bowlers Journal Singles leader) to name a few. I am sure there are a few more that I missed as well as several NE teams on the Top 150 leaderboard. I hope to see some of you soon as I may actually enter a NEBA tournament in the upcoming months.

Thanks for the clarification Brian, I could have sworn that set was shot in a NEBA. Time has a way of warping the memory I guess. Hope to see you in the not too distant future.

I think Lomanto had 277-278-279-279-300 for 1413 at Milford. If I remember correctly we had like 7 or 8 300 games in the 9am squad during the 3 bracket games, it was crazy. Lomanto got a 1st round bye and bowled Fagan round 2 and shot 160. I know Im close, just dont know if those numbers are exact.

Jon,

You are correct in that post. I remeber that Andy got beat by Fagan in that round also.
