league play. You can pick up any five individuals that are bowling at your center in any certified league to try and
qualify. The 5 bowlers do not have to be on the same team or league, but they must be bowling at your center at
the same time and must be current members of the Green Bay Area USBC.
2. Qualifying dates are January 6th – February 2nd. Tournament director reserves right to extend qualifying dates for
leagues/centers that may cancel due to special circumstances/inclement weather.

the established format which is based on participation from each center.

on one final roster for the match play portion of the tournament.

there will be no changes made without approval from the tournament director.
