1. All participants must be members of the Central Ohio – USBC (Association #80795) at least 30 days prior to bowling.
2. This is a handicap tournament (90% handicap based on 220 average). Bowlers may enter an additional payout fund for scratch scores. The cost for the scratch option is $5 per event. (*Note: Entering the scratch option does not determine the scratch winner of the tournament...only the winner of the scratch option prize fund).
3. Tournament will be divided into 2 Divisions, Open and Womens. Females will be entered in the womens division for singles and all events unless otherwise noted.
4. Prize ratio will be 1 in 7. 50% of bracket money will be added back into the prize fund.
5. Multiple participation is permitted in all events; however, to cash more than once, five player teams must change at least two bowlers and doubles must change at least one bowler. You may only cash once in singles.
6. Entrants will use their highest USBC average from a league within the jurisdiction of the CO-USBC. Averages will be accepted in the following order:

is an emergency. The Tournament Manager will make this decision. Each event is bowled on a pair of lanes and bowlers may
bowl in only one event each squad. USBC rule 325 will apply.
