The Scratch Masters, in conjunction with SCOTCH, is a mixed competition open to all Tournament bowlers. Bowlers will be placed in divisions based on entering average and are required to pay the entry fee prior to the start of Tournament bowling. The Committee may place a bowler in a higher division at its discretion. Any adjustments of this type will be made before the entrant begins bowling.
|A||$45||206 and above|
|B||$40||190 to 205|
|C||$35||175 to 189|
|D||$30||160 to 174|
|E||$25||159 and below|
The 6 game Singles and Doubles events scratch totals from SCOTCH will be used to determine the top 6 qualifiers for each division, with the top 5 advancing to the Scratch Masters roll-off. In the event of a tie in any position, there will be a 1 game roll-off before the stepladder format begins. These scores will not carry over.
Each division will compete in a stepladder format. The first match will be the #5 qualifier bowling the #4 qualifier. The winner of the match will bowl the #3 qualifier, with that winner bowling the #2 qualifier. The winner of that match will bowl the #1 qualifier for the final match.
The match game competition will begin at 1pm on Sunday, March 4, 2018. Bowlers must check in 30 minutes in advance. Any bowler who is not available to bowl at the scheduled time or does not check in timely will be disqualified and the alternate (6th qualifier) will substitute.
Bowlers will be allowed 2 practice balls per lane before each match.
100% of all funds collected, less lineage, will be paid out to those bowlers competing in the step ladder event. Payout ratio will be 1:3, not to exceed 5 payouts per division.
Any claims of error must be reported before the start of the next match. In the case of an error in the
final match, any claims of error must be reported within thirty (30) minutes after the end of the match.
In the event of a dispute, the decision of the Scratch Masters Chair is final.
