    England

    Airport Bowl in London, England (August 12-28, 2006)

    2006LIChampionRobKendall.jpg When Rob Kendall lost his first two-game title match, 438-372, against reigning European ranking champion Paul Moor in the QubicaAMF London International, the question had to be asked. 'Would we see a repeat of last year?'

    In the history of the tournament the top seed has only "turned the tide" once (Damian Gray, last year) and managed to come back after being defeated in the first match.

    Kendall was the only undefeated player in this year's double-elimination format and had to be defeated twice in the final. In the decider, going into game #2, Kendall was mere three pins down against Moor, 205-202.

    2006LIChampionRobKendallwinningshot.jpg Moor having the advantage, threw 217 for a 422 total, to be beaten to the title by Kendalls' 231-433 total. The picture shows Kendall's winning shot.

    Kendall celebrated the Bank Holiday in style receiving the £5,000 top prize (approx. $9,460). Moor pocketed £2,500 for finishing second.

    Kendall and Parker move into second and third at London Airport Bowl


    Paul_Moor_5478.jpg The final weekend of qualifying has started in The QubicaAMF London International 2006 at Airport Bowl in London, England, yesterday, the first day of running two squads per day.

    Some bowlers chose to bowl in both squads, including 2004 and 2005 European ranking champion and current No. 1 Paul Moor (left), who managed 1940 (215,56 average) in the early squad and 1958 (217,56) later, good enough for third and fourth place on the day.

    2006LIDaveParker.jpg 2006LIRobKendall.jpg Dave Parker (left) was 75 pins ahead on a 225,89 average with 2033 and Rob Kendall (right) even better with a 227,78 average and 2050 pins to become the daily leader and earn himself a guaranteed spot in the finals on Monday, along with Parker as the runner-up.

    Both are now second and third in the overall standings with Adam Scott still 62 pins in front on 2112, a 234,67. Qualifying concludes with the final two squads on Sunday, August 27.

    The top 32 totals including daily winners and runners up, eight high 3-game series, eight high single games (altogether 48 players) all qualify for finals on Monday, 28th August (Bank Holiday in England). Players seeded 17-48 will bowl best-of-three games in Round 1. The 16 winners will join the top 16 to bowl for the title and the £5,000 (approx. $9,460) top prize in double-elimination bracket two-game match play.

    300-game: Robert Bruce, SCO


    Jo Harries becomes first female squad leader in The QubicaAMF London International


    Robert Bruce shoots first perfecto of the tournament

    2006LIJoHarries.jpg On Friday, a field of 25 bowlers, comprising 70% re-entries took to the lanes at Airport Bowl in London to try and earn their place in the finals of The QubicaAMF London International 2006 with £5,000 (approx. $9,460) up for grabs.

    Going into the last of nine games, it was Nicki Ainge, Jo Harries (left) and Neil Highgate that looked likely candidates for the top two spots. The top two players of each qualifying day are automatically qualified for the finals.

    2006LIRobertBruce.jpg Robert Bruce (right) had other ideas though, and with the tournament's first 300-game this year it was close.

    2006LINeilHighgate_small.jpg The Scot finished with 1819 pinfall total and an average of 202,11, 12 pins adrift though, Neil Highgate (left) took the runner-up spot with 1831, while Jo Harries led the squad with 1867 including 45 pins bonus.

    Harries became the first female squad leader in The QubicaAMF London International 2006. You don't have to be a prophet to predict that Bruce has also earned a spot for the finals as one of the eight high single games.

    Qualifying continues on Saturday and Sunday, August 26-27, with the final on Monday, 28th August (Bank Holiday in England).

    The top 32 totals including daily winners and runners up, eight high 3-game series, eight high single games (altogether 48 players) all qualify for finals. Players seeded 17-48 will bowl best-of-three games in Round 1. The 16 winners will join the top 16 for double-elimination bracket two-game match play to determine the winner.

    300-game: Robert Bruce, SCO


    Chamberlain leads Thursday qualifying in QubicaAMF London International


    2006LIMattChamberlain.jpg Another 25 entries on the standings came from the first weekday squad. Thursday saw a good mix of entries, including Richard Hood, who was already likely to have qualified on his first attempt, re-entering to try and better his score.

    It was junior Matt Chamberlain (left) that set the lanes on fire however. Fresh off of coming third in the English Junior Open Singles A division, Chamberlain shot a 1979 scratch total meaning 2024 with his 45 pins bonus. Another junior, Rachel Rawlings had a 266 (271) and 677 (692) both of which could see her qualify with her 5 pins per game bonus added.

    2006LIPhilScammell.jpg Phil Scammell (right) set a European record last year in the qualifying with an 866 series. Thursday he was happy enough to qualify as daily runner up with 1951, though he'll be back on Sunday for a re-entry.

    Adam Scott.jpg Adam Scott (left) continued to lead the field of 97 players with 2112 nine game total or an average of 234,67.

    Qualifying continues until Sunday, August 27, with the final and guaranteed £5,000 first place prize (approx. $9,460) up for grabs on Monday, 28th August (a holiday in England).

    The top 32 totals including daily winners and runners up, eight high 3-game series, eight high single games (altogether 48 players) all qualify for finals. Players seeded 17-48 will bowl best-of-three games in Round 1. The 16 winners will join the top 16 for double-elimination bracket two-game match play to determine the winner.

    Parfitt and Evans lead third and fourth squad to earn berth into London International finals


    2006LIPaulEvans.jpg 2006LIRhyssParfitt.jpg Rhyss Parfitt (left) and Paul Evans Jr. (right) led the third and fourth qualifying squad in The QubicaAMF London International 2006 at Airport Bowl in London, England.

    With a squad full of familiar faces, including tournament manager and English national team coach Chris Buck, Parfitt averaged 224,22 to move into second place in the overall standings with 2018 nine-game total. Adam Scott continued to lead with 2112 (234,67).

    2006LIDamianGray.jpg 2005 London International champion, Damian Gray, posted 1938 to finish the third squad as runner-up. Parfitt and Evans both earned a spot in the finals on Monday, August 28. And Mr. Buck? According to tournament official Andy James, he was "not doing to well, but with games of 238, 256 and 209 to finish and a 703 series it's very likely he will qualify at least with the high series."

    2006LIChrisOates.jpg 30 men and just one Lady took to the lanes on Sunday for the fourth squad. Paul Evans Jr., didn't have the best of starts with a 170 in game 1, but this didn't phase him as he went on to shoot 237 and 289 in games 2 and 3, helping him along the way to fell 1999 pins taking the daily winner spot, along with Chris "Porridge" Oates qualifying for finals day in the runner up position shooting 1881.
