2022 Annual 8-9-10 Progressive No-Tap Rules

General Tournament Rules:
The entry fee is $40; covers prize fund ($20), lineage ($10) and administrative fees ($7) 4/7/11 Strike pot ($3).  300 is the top possible score for any game. 1200 is the top possible score for the tournament. The winner of the tournament will have the highest raw score + handicap (not exceeding 1200). Handicap is 80% of 220 (see the Averages category below for more details). Sidepots are available (see each sidepot category below for more details). Each sidepot is $5; Doubles is $5 per person = $10 per entry. Bowlers will bowl all 4 games on the same pair each shift.

Shift times are Sunday 10 am, 12:30 pm and 3 pm
Saturday squads will be available if you have 16 or more bowlers.  You can enter (or re-enter) the tournament as many times as you want. 1:6 get paid; $1000 for 1st, $500 for 2nd, $360 for 3rd and $58 for 4th-33rd place (based on 200 entries).

Handicap for the 8-9-10 is calculated at 80% of 220. We ALWAYS use current season average . . .  Exceptions based upon tournament directors’ discretion.
1. If your current season average is 10 pins below last season’s average, then you will use last year’s average; that means that if your current average is 9 pins below last season’s average – you are still OK to use the current season average.
2. You have accepted a re-rate at another tournament you are required to report the rerated average at time of registration.
3. You only have a sport or tournament average (we will adjust upward based on the adjustment table provided by the USBC).
All earnings of $600 or more must be declared or you may be disqualified.
We also request that you bring in a copy of your current average from your league so that we have it for our records when we are verifying scores at the end of the tournament.


80% of 220 is base for handicap. Max score of 300 will be enforced on all scores.  Example: Roll a 299 and get 10 pins, your max score is 300 not 309.

300 Pot:
$5 per entry fee returned at 100%. All winners will share the pot per 300 thrown. Example: $100 in pot, only 2 people throw 300 then each receive $50

High Game Pots:

$5 Entry Fee covers both the 1st and 4th game.  Highest scores bowled in each the 1st and 4th game will receive 40% of the pot. 2nd Highest scores will receive 25% of the pot. The remaining amount will be divided by additional cashiers. 1/10 Cashing ratio.
