FORMAT
Qualifying: 5-games across 5 pairs of lanes.
Sunday Casher's Round (9:30am): Cut to top 25 plus highest non-cashing lady and highest non-cashing senior if we get 3 or more of each (based on a field of 100 entries), and those bowlers come back on Sunday with pins starting fresh.  The top 2 bowlers from each squad are gauranteed to move on to Sunday's Casher's Round as part of the 25 (or 26 or 27) total moving on to Sunday..  The cut to Sunday will be an overall cut after combining scores from each qualifying squad.  Cashers bowl 5 games Sunday morning at 10am and then cut to the top 12 (based on 100 total entries.  With fewer than 96, the cut will be to the top 8; with 96-160 bowlers the cut will be to the top 12 with 4 BYES in round 1 of Match Play, and with more than 160 the cut will be top 24 with top 8 getting BYES).  Remaining bowlers will compete in a seeded, single-elimination bracket, 2-game total pinfall in each round.  Bracket will be reseeded in the top 8 or top 16 only if lower seeds win matches in the round of 12 or 24.
Prize Ratio:  1 in 4 entries will cash in this event

FORMAT IS BASED ON 100 ENTRIES

Desterpado -- 2 games total pinfall, and the desperado will have it's own 1 in 10 cut with the minimum of 2 bowlers advancing to Sunday's cashers round.  $50 entry fee and is only open to anybody who has previously bowled in one of this year's squads.

RE-ENTRY RULES
With the top 2 from each squad automatically qualifying to Sunday, we will start at the highest non-auto-qualifiers (is two dashes legal like that?) and work down the list, however, first time entries get first dibs.  Then we will allow those who already qualified to bowl again if they wish to do so for side action.

INCENTIVES
With a minimum of 3 senior bowlers (50 and up), the highest non-cashing senior will qualify to the Sunday Cashers round
With a minimum of 3 lady bowlers, the highest non-cashing lady will qualify to the Sunday Cashers round
