Oil Pattern


QUALIFYING
Squad A -- 11:00am
Check-In -- 10:00am to 11:00am

FORMAT A
Qualifying: 5-games across 5 pairs of lanes.
Eliminator: Cut to top 16 (based on 72 entries), then bowlers compete in a 2-game eliminator round cutting the field in half.  Each eliminator round following the first round will be 1-game rounds.  Pins drop after every round, although we will have 1 wild card in the first round.  Wild card will be the highest total pinfall score who wasn't in the cut for that round.  With 72 entries, the top 16 would make the cut.  16 would cut to the top 7 + the 1 wild card.  Remaining 8 would cut to 4, then cut to 2, then one final game for the top 2.
Prize Ratio:  A minimum of 1 in 4 entries will cash in this event.  17th and 18th would also be paid with 72 entries.

FORMAT IS BASED ON A FULL FIELD OF 72 BOWLERS
