April 7, 2019 Tournament Format set
On April 7, 2019, the Ann Arbor 700 Club and Ann Arbor Woman's 600 Club will be running concurrent tournaments at Brighton Bowl. The 600 Club will be running their 500/600 Doubles Tournament. The Ann Arbor 700 Club will be running a 700 Club Open Singles Tournament and the 8th Annual 700 Club Open Trio Tournament.
Why have a 700 Club Open Singles Tournament? Well, welcome to the nuances of the USBC. In order to have the Ann Arbor 700 Club Open Trio tournament be able to accept the scores from the 500/600 Doubles Tournament, the Trio Tournament has to be certified as a Mail-o-graphic tournament. This causes those wishing to bowl in the Trio Tournament to have a separate Certified tournament in order to have scores eligible for the Trio Tournament. This took two weeks and a review by the USBC Rules committee to come up with this final solution.
Therefore, the 700 Club Open Singles Tourament is there for bowlers who do not wish, or are not eligible, to bowl in the 500/600 Doubles Tournament. The Entry Fee for the Singles tourament is $10 which includes the $9 per bowler linage fee and a $1 Expense fee. The bowler with the high score with handicap will recieve a plaque from the expense fees.
With the 700 Club Open Trio Tournament being a Mail-o-graphic tournament, multiple entries are allowed by USBC Rule 315 providing at least one bowler is changed per team. Teams will still be required to have at least one 700 Club Member per team. Entry fees for this tournament are $45 per team.
USBC Rule 302 – Mail-o-Graphic Tournament
A mail-o-graphic tournament is one in which scores are submitted from separate or the same competition, bowling establishment or association and are compared to qualify for prizes in one common prize list. The following provisions apply to all USBC mail-o-graphic tournaments:
a. All scores are submitted to the tournament manager who enters the scores and determines team and/or individual standings.
b. All scores used are from certified competition.
c. USBC will certify such tournaments provided:
1. All USBC equipment specifications apply.
2. All rules for USBC tournaments shall apply insofar as applicable.
3. Application must designate tournament as a mail-o-graphic tournament.
d. As the scores used in mail-o-graphic competition are already recognized in the certified competition in which they are actually bowled, so they are not eligible for USBC national awards.
