  4. Qualifying and Finals
    1. Qualifying Squad will consist of 6 total games across 2 weeks.
    2. The Finals will consist of 1 game matches. Each new round will use the immediate following game. In the event of 60+ entries, the last round will consist of a 3 game series.
    3. The first 3 games of each league session will be the only ones counted for the duration of the tournament.
  5. Weeks will be considered as running from Sunday-Saturday for the duration of this event.
  6. Scores must be submitted by 11:59 PM EST on the Sunday following the end of each week. Exceptions require admin approval. Failure to submit on time will result in a 0 for all scores that week. Scores are to be submitted to the website – www.digitalbowlingsociety.com – including a picture of the recap sheet proving your scores or a league secretary link to your league that must be updated before scores close on the Sunday following the end of a week.
  7. The average adjustment rule will apply (Rule 319e).
  8. Any bowler may be subject to a re-rate at the discretion of the tournament director at any point until their squad begins. Re-rated bowlers may opt for a refund or accept the re-rated average.
  9. It is each bowler’s responsibility to ensure their average and handicap are correct in the event. If the average submitted is lower, the bowler may risk disqualification if not corrected before the end of the first week of play, as it could lead to a bowler receiving more handicap. If the submitted average is higher, the bowler will bowl with the number submitted if the error is not corrected by the end of the first week of play.
