  • Tournament is only open to Green Bay Area USBC Members.  USBC Members from outside of the Green Bay Area are eligible to bowl after paying our local dues of $7.
  • Tournament is Baker Format.  Bowler 1 will bowl frames 1-4-7-10, Bowler 2 will bowl frames 2-5-8, and Bowler 3 will bowl frames 3-6-9. 
  • Qualifying will consist of 9 games.  3 games will be completed on one pair of lanes, after games 3 and 6, teams will move 12 lanes to their right.  Bowlers on the team must rotate baker positions after each game.
  • After qualifying, the field will be cut at least 1 in 3.  Advancing teams will then bowl 6 additional games with scores from the qualifying round carrying over.  Teams must continue to rotate baker positions after each game.  In the event of a tie for the last advancing spot, a 3 frame roll off (frames 8-10) will break the tie.
  • After round 2, the field will be cut to the top 4 teams which will be seeded into a stepladder final.  All ties will be broken by a 3 frame roll off (frames 8-10).  The 4 seed team will bowl the 3 seed team in a 3 game match.  Teams must rotate bowlers after each game.  The team with the highest 3 game pin total will advance to face the 2 seed.  The winner of that match will then advance to face the top seed in a 3 game championship match.  In the event of a tie, a 3 frame roll off will occur.
  • This is a handicap event.  Team handicap will be figured on a basis of 1/3 of 90% of 690.  High average from the 2019-20 season will be used.  In the event that a bowler does not have an average from last season, a current average of at least 18 games can be used with verification.  Bowlers without a verifiable average will be assigned a 230 average.  15 pin rule is in effect, bowlers averaging 15 pins higher at the time of bowling must use their current average.
  • 100% of the prize fund will be returned.  All teams that advance to round 2 will cash.
