The West Coast Senior Tour returns to Nevada this weekend for a tournament at Riverside Casino Lanes in Laughlin.
The two-day event for bowlers aged 60 and older will start Saturday.
Brea’s Ed Jamison will be gunning for his second straight West Coast Senior Tour title after his improbable victory two weeks ago in Diamond Bar.
It was the 67-year-old Jamison’s first WCST title and he did it by running the table in the stepladder finals, winning all three of his head-to-head matches. Jamison had previously competed in more than 100 WCST events without nailing down a championship.
Jamison outdueled Kevin Gannon of Lakewood in the championship match, 279-227, to claim the $500 first-place prize.
The right-handed Jamison also bowled a 300 during the eight-game qualifying round.
The Laughlin event will be the WCST’s seventh event of a 12-tournament season. Six of the tournaments are in Nevada and the other six in California. So far, there have been six different champions.
The WCST will be back in California for its next tournament when it stages an event Aug. 16 at Buena Lanes in Ventura. The Ventura event will have a special double-elimination format in the finals to crown the champion.
After the Ventura tournament, the WCST will hold its next event in Henderson, Nev., on Sept. 20. The WCST will wrap up its season with tournaments in La Habra in October, Las Vegas in November and Laughlin in December.
