Real Bowlers Tour Staff |

Well the RBT 20th Annual Eric DeFreitas Scratch Classic is in the books. First we would like to thank the 154 bowlers that came from near and far to make this an incredible event, your participation made this one of the largest one day bowling events on the east coast. We could not ask for a better field of bowlers, we wholeheartedly appreciate the support shown for this event and the RBT. 

Also a BIG thank you to Junction Lanes and their awesome staff for allowing us to host our events the entire weekend. The service and accommodation was second to none, kudos to management and the wonderful staff for blowing us away with tremendous service from start to finish. 

A special thanks to our sponsors STORM Bowling and Bowler's Express Pro Shops for being a HUGE part of the success of this event and the entire weekend. Your contributions and presence speaks volume to the great companies you are.

The RBT Eric DeFreitas Scratch Classic started with 154 of the best bowlers in the southeastern region competing on a challenging 39ft pattern. The scoring pace was medium low and spare shooting was a premium. The field of 154 bowled 7 games and was then cut in half to 77 to bowl 4 additional games. After the total 11 games the field was cut to the top 5 for stepladder finals.

Top 5 Finishers

1 -  BJ Moore
2 -  Rob Gotchall
3 -  Logan Joiner
4 -  Tom Daughtery
5 -  Erik Ramos

In the stepladder finals Tom Daughtery defeated Ramos, Joiner and Gotchall but would succumb to eventual champion BJ Moore. All 5 stepladder finalist bowled tremendous and the spectators in attendance were entertained by the talent and showmanship of these great bowlers. 

The top 31 bowlers of this stout field cashed, in addition to the top senior and lady out of the cash. This event caps off the 2013-2014 season for the REALBOWLERS TOURS. The DeFreitas is always the final event of year for the RBT...just want our supporters to know that we appreciate everyone of you. Your participation in our events are not taken lightly, and we will continue to do everything in our power to give you quality, competitive events you can be proud to be a part of.
