We will run a «Pre-Qualifier» or a «Satellite Tournament» on a Sunday morning here at Sherwood Bowl on August 27th at 10am, September 10th @ 10am, and another one on October 29th @ 9am.
This is how it is designed:
Originally, it was meant for anyone under a 230 average. A lot of bowlers; mostly local, won't bowl in the tournament because 1) they don't they think they won't be able to compete and 2) maybe because of the price of a $200 entry fee.
With the tournament being designed for a 230 average or below, we really think we might be able to hit a demographic of bowlers we rarely tap into. Averages are based from LAST YEAR averages, of 21 games or more. Since I think we all can agree… 9 games wouldn't be enough.
The Tournament cost is $40 bucks. We take no lineage or anything. Every $200 bucks we collect, another one of the bowlers entered will have a chance to move on to the Main Event in November. Any extra money, we would like it go to the runner up. They will not receive cash back for it, however, they will be allowed to use that money left over to be put towards a TPC event.
Ex/ I have 22 bowlers that enter… I collect $880. There would be 4 qualifiers for the Main Event, and the runner up (5th place) would have $80 bucks towards any TPC tournament.
There is no cash rewarded, all «winnings» will be towards the TPC.
The format: A 5 game scratch tournament.
Now, The Tournament Committee have talked about it, and we aren't going to be full 16 lanes with this tournament. With enough people asking us we will run the same format tournament, however it will be for anyone OVER 230 as well. Same type of format and same cost. We hope to generate a new group of bowlers, that we might not usually bowl. This tournaments are open to ANY bowler from ANY center.
The Main Event
This is Edmonton’s premier cash tournament.
The cost of the TPC at Sherwood is $200.00 a shift. There are FOUR qualifying shifts: Friday Morning, Friday afternoon, Saturday morning, and Saturday afternoon. You are welcome to enter as many shifts as you would like or need, but you may only qualify once. Each shift will consist of 8 games. Once all three shifts are completed, the top 31 entries will be determined based on the 8 game total pinfall of each individual, after removing all duplicate entries.
The 32nd qualifying spot will be awarded to the winner of the consolation round
CONSOLATION: Bowlers Qualied from 32-63 will bowl in the Consolation. There will be a 3 game Consolation tournament, where the top SCRATCH bowler after the 3 games will be crowned Champion and be the «32nd Qualifier».
Once the consolation round is completed and the 32 qualifiers are solidified, the bowlers will then be entered into both of the two brackets.
The ‘A Side” bracket will be seeded based on the bowlers qualifying position. The highest qualifier will face the lowest qualifier; the second highest qualifier will face the second lowest qualifier, etc. For example
1st qualifier will face 32nd qualifier.
2nd qualifier will face 31st qualifier.
3rd qualifier will face 30th qualifier.
The ‘B Side” bracket will be a random draw. Therefore, any qualifier can face any qualifier in the first round of the bracket.
Each round will consist of 3 game match play. The total pinfall of all three games combined will be used to determine each match winner. In the event of a tie for total 3 game pinfall, the winner will be determined based on who won the most individual games within the 3 game match. The winner of each round will then move onto the next round. This will
The winner of the “A Side” will then face the winner of the “B Side” to determine the tournament champion.
The doubles event will be a no tap scotch doubles tournament. “No tap” refers to a scoring system where if you leave 1 corner pin standing on your first ball it will automatically be counted as a strike. We will be using the alternating frame format for the scotch doubles aspect.
The tournament will commence with a 6 game qualifying round. The top 16 teams with the highest total pinfall will then move onto the match play finals.
The match play finals will be seeded based on qualifying position. For example, 1st seed will face 16th seed; 2nd seed will face 15th seed, etc.
Each match will consist of one match play game using the scotch doubles no tap format, the winner moving on to the next round.
This will repeat until we have a doubles tournament champion!
The cost of the doubles event will be $200.00 a team, which will also include a singles pot paid out to highest doubles team game rolled in each of the 6 qualifying games.
