Scratch Masters Competition
The Optional Scratch Masters competition is open to Showgirl 2017 bowlers only.
There will be four (4) divisions. The nine (9) game scratch total from the handicap tournament is used to determine the minimum six (6) qualifiers, this could be expanded to eight (8) qualifiers depending on total number of entries in Showgirl 2017 plus alternates for the Round Robin (match game) competition. If a TIE exists for bottom position, there will be a one-game roll-off to determine the last qualifier.
The qualifiers will bowl one (1) match game against each of the other qualifiers, and a final position match. The winner of each match receives 30 bonus pins added to their score, the loser gets zero (0) bonus points. In case of a tie, 15 bonus pins are added to each bowlerís score.
A lane schedule will be posted before the squad begins. This lists what lane each bowler is to bowl on for each of the matches. The final match is determined by position. The leader draws for the first lane. All other positions line up to the right of the leaderís lane.
The highest four (4) bowlers from the match game competition advance to the finals, with #4 vs. #3, the winner of that match bowls #2, etc. A lane change will occur after each step ladder game. There are no bonus pins awarded, and no carry over from the match game competition. If a TIE exists during any game of the final stepladder competition, a 9th and 10th frame roll-off determines which bowler advances.
Bowlers must check in at least fifteen (15) minutes before the scheduled match game competition (@ 8:15 am), scheduled match starts at 8:30 am on Sunday.
If a bowler has not checked in by the 8:15 am pre-check-in time, the alternate bowls. The unavailable bowler is disqualified and forfeits his/her entry fee into Scratch Masters. The alternate assumes the #6 (or lowest) position and the others advance accordingly.
Bowlers are allowed 2 balls on each lane before the start of each stepladder match. Practice lanes will be set up for others while they await their match during the step ladder.
