The second side pot awarded to bowlers was the scratch side pot, awarded to the top five bowlers with the highest scores without including the handicap scores.

Martinez, Correa and Bolling were the top three bowlers who won portions of the scratch pot. The other two bowlers who received a portion of the pot were Doug Landers and Mike McNeley.

In addition to the side pots, there was also a 50/50 raffle that was awarded to Larry Attebery.

The next PVTBC event will be held on Saturday, Aug. 27 at 1 p.m. This tournament will be a certified no-tap singles event and will have both a handicap and scratch side pot. Varner and Barbier will be the directors of the tournament.
