Mallwitz's Island Lanes on Grand Island was the site for the 38th annual Tonawandas USBC Kick Off Tournament. The scratch tournament, held on Wednesday, August 28th, features many of the top male and female bowlers of the Tonawandas Association. Eight men and eight women competed in the event, which was comprised of a two-game qualifying round followed by an eliminator-style final. All contestants were invited based on their accomplishments on the lanes in the 2018-2019 season.

After bowling the 2-game qualifier, the field is then cut to the top 4 scores in each division- men's and women's. In the women's division the top qualifier was Holly Johnson (459). She was followed by Peggy Kuhn (437), Becca Phelps (428), and Cindy Carroll (406). In the men's division the top four scores were Chris Labiak (535), Mike Johnson (503), Mike Wozniak (471), and Mike Zarcone (451).

These eight bowlers then bowled a 2-game eliminator style final. In the women's division Cindy Carroll's 215 was the top score. Becca Phelps's 202 also made the final spot in the women's final. On the men's side, Chris Labiak (300) and Mike Johnson (277) advanced to the men's final.

In the first final match Becca Phelps defeated Cindy Carroll (215-176) for the women's title. The second match saw Chris Labiak defeat Mike Johnson (236-204) for the men's title.
