Fair Lanes Open



$120,000 FAIR LANES OPEN
Fair Lanes Woodlawn, Baltimore, Md., Apr 12-16, 1983

Trask Up To The Task

Art Trask flashed the form that carried him to three PBA titles in 1982 as he captured the $120,000 Fair Lanes Open by winning four games.

Victim for the second straight week was Earl Anthony, 275-202, as Trask grabbed the $18,000 first prize and came within an eyelash of winning an even bigger prize, $50,000, from True Value, had he tossed a perfect game.

Trask could not have been better as the fifth qualifier for the championship finals. He first ousted Ray Shackelford, 228-179, but had a somewhat tougher time of it against Butch Soper, 213-205. Next, he tuned up for the championship match by rolling over Pete Couture, 227-192.
