RULES
1.
Entry will be opened to all sanctioned members of Southern New Hampshire USBC. Every participant must be a
current member, in good standing with USBC.
2.
The Tournament shall consist of a four person Team Event, a Doubles and/or Singles Event and All Events. Three
consecutive games shall be bowled in each event and total pins shall decide the winner. The total of nine games bowled shall
determine the All Events winner.
3.
Female bowlers may elect to compete in the Women’s Only division in either the Team, Doubles and/or Singles or all
three events. Female bowlers may also elect to compete in the Open’s division or a combination of the two divisions.
However, in order to qualify for All Events, an entrant must bowl all nine games in either the Open or the Women’s Only
division. In order to participate in the Women’s Only division, the entry form must indicate accordingly. Otherwise, the entry
will be registered in the Open division. However, if there are not at least four teams registered for the Women’s Only division
by January 11, 2015, there will be no Women’s Only events. Bowlers will then be given the option to compete in the Open
division. Captains will be notified and a refund of any entry fees will be issued to any team registered for the Women’s Only
division that do not want to compete in the Open division.
4.
Entrants shall use their highest league average in USBC certified leagues from the previous winter season of at least
21 games. If an entrant has no previous winter season average, he/she shall use their highest 2014 summer average of at least
21 games. If none of the above applies, an Entrant shall use his/her highest current league average of at least 21 games as of
December 31, 2014. An Entrant not meeting one of the above criteria shall bowl scratch. The entrant must use his/her highest
USBC sanctioned average regardless of whether bowled as a regular member or substitute and if the bowler bowls in another
association, he/she must submit in writing an average verification from that association as soon as possible, but no later than
December 31, 2014. If a bowler’s current average for at least 21 games is ten (10) pins higher than the entering average,
he/she must disclose said average and use his/her current average as of December 31, 2014.
5.
Advanced registration opens December 12, 2014 and closes January 11, 2015. All entries postmarked the first post
office business day following the entry closing date shall be considered early registration and shall qualify for Early Bird
special drawings. Walk-in registrations will be accepted up to one hour prior to squad time pending lane availability and shall
be subject to a $5.00 fee. Re-entries will close one hour prior to squad time pending lane availability.
6.

Scratch prevails. Individuals may place in either scratch or handicap, but not in both for the same event. Handicap will be
100% of the difference between the bowler’s highest average and 230. Prizes will be distributed on the basis of entries.
7.
Entry fee for the Tournament on advanced registrations will be $20 per bowler per event. (Team, Doubles and/or

entry fee for walk-in registrations shall be $25 for the first event and $20 for each additional event provided that the bowler(s)’
registration form indicates which events the bowler intends to bowl. If a walk-in registrant signs up for more than one event at
separate occasions, the $5.00 fee will be applied to each separate registration form. (Re-entries are not subject to the $5.00
fee).
8.
After entries have been received and the dates assigned by the Tournament director and not refused by the team or
individual entrant prior to preparation of the schedule, no fees shall be refunded. Entry fees must be mailed to Dawn Gagnon,

9.
Multiple entries and re-entries will be allowed in the Team, Doubles and Singles events only. Not more than two
players on one team may place more than once in the prize list for position standings. In no case, shall the same doubles pair
or singles entrant be permitted to place more than once in the prize list for position standings.
10.
When a bowler competes more than once, his/her first appearance in each event shall count towards his/her All
Events score.
11.
Substitutes are allowed when a replacement is necessary. The Tournament director must be notified of substitutes at
least one hour before the scheduling bowling time, if possible. In case of an emergency after a game has started, a substitute, if
one is available, shall be permitted to bowl in the Team and Doubles events only. The combined scores are to count in either
of these events. If no substitute is available, only the actual score of the frames bowled shall count.
12.
A substitute will not be required to reimburse the original entrant with the entry fee paid, nor shall the substitute be
expected to give the original entrant any prize money or trophy he/she may win.

for each such event. If a bowler fails to indicate his/her intent to bowl the doubles and/or singles event on separate dates, it
will be assumed that the bowler intends to bowl the six-game series for doubles and singles events consecutively on the date
indicated on the registration form.
17.
If one bowler is late for the Doubles event, the entrant present will bowl his/her Singles event first. If his/her partner
has not arrived by the time the Singles event is finished, and a substitute is not available, he/she will be permitted to bowl
his/her games in the Doubles event in order to qualify for All Events.
