Final week of Fall 2021!
I know, I know, I'm sad about it, too. But it's time for our final week of bowling for 2021. We have a great championship game set to go, so that's exciting! We'll also award prizes for best average male and female. Of all our average males and females, we'll award prizes for the best in our league.
It comes down to 6-9 Split Vs. Team 6 for all the marbles. Uh, I mean trophies.
Rules for Championship:
At least half of each team must be present (4 player teams require 2 players to attend, 3 player teams, if only one person shows up, it'll be at your discretion)
Players must be present- no pre-bowling scores will be used. If you miss, your blinded score will be used.
Scoring for playoffs will be as per usual: 1 point for each game won and 1 point for total pins (scratch + handicap).
Ties will be resolved with a single frame rolloff, using the handicap pin total (strikes and spares are 10). In the case of a tie there, we keep rolling and counting at the end of each frame. (Again, using the handicap score.)
If we still have a tie, well then dang, we'll have that sword fight in the parking lot. Bring your swords just in case.
If your team did not make the championship you still bowl! As mentioned last week, you paid for 11 weeks, you bowl 11 weeks. Yes, there's nothing riding on it but we're here for the fun anyway.
There will be pizza! We'll have our usual end of season pizza party, so that's always fun! There should be enough pizza for everyone, we usually do a mix up of cheese, pepperoni and veggie.
By the end of today or tomorrow, you should get an email inviting you to join our Winter 2022 season! That's right, we're just gonna keep on rolling. The plan now is to start on Sunday the 9th of January and we'll bowl for 11 weeks, skipping MLK weekend and ending on March 20th. Registration is not quite yet open but it will be soon, and you can save $20 if you register early.
Bowling etiquette (just a constant reminder):
Be ready to bowl when it's your turn. No, seriously, don't be delaying play because you're messing around somewhere else. Being in line at the bar is one thing, but consistently having to be told it's your turn is annoying. Be considerate and ready when it's your turn.
Be aware of other bowlers: if 2 bowlers make the approach side by side, the bowler on the right has the right of way. LOOK AROUND. Make sure that when it's your turn, you're not bowling at the same time as the bowlers in the lanes next to you.
Wear bowling shoes. This should go without saying, but street shoes can damage the approach and lead to falls. Shoes are NOT included in the price of your season, so make sure to rent your shoes when you arrive if you need to.
Keep an eye on food and drink: don't spill near the approach, wet shoes cause falls (trust me on this one). If you're a sloppy eater, then eat at the table behind the benches on the lanes.
Don't be a jerk. No, seriously. We're all here to have fun. Don't be a jerk.
