The entrée fee is $35 with a re-entry fee of $30. The handicap will be 80 percent of the difference in your average and 220, with a maximum of 32 pins per game. The average score will be a person’s 2011-2012 average with a minimum of 21 games bowled. If no 2011-2012 average exists then the bowler will be assigned an average based on this years average and pat performance based on tournament organizers discretion.

Qualifying will consist of four games across eight lanes, moving one pair to the right after each game. Top 15 will qualify for match play with the high qualifier receiving a first round bye.

Any tie for the qualifying spot will be decided by a one game roll-off. A tie between seed will be decided by a coin toss. Tie for high or second high qualifier will be determined by the highest game bowled.

Extra jackpot is $5, $1 for each game and $1 for series. Scratch scores will be used for jackpots. All jackpots are combined for both shifts. Brackets are also available.
