Lapeer Recreation opened in 1919 in downtown Lapeer.  This event marks the 100 year anniversary of the bowling center, and Dan Gerlach is adding money to the prize fund to make this a special celebration of 100 years of bringing the sport of bowling to the city of Lapeer, Michigan.  Please check back often to see the progress of the added money, as the goal is to raise $10,000 for this event!

SUNDAY CASHER'S ROUND
Warm-ups go on at 10:00am and roll call begins at 9:15am.


FORMAT A
Qualifying: 9-games across 9 pairs of lanes.
Match Play: Cut to top 1/4 (max of 45 can come back Sunday if we end up with 4 full squads) of each squad, then bowlers return on Sunday to bowl another 9 game block.  Pins from qualifying drop, but all Sunday pins carry over.  Cut to the top 12 with to bowl 3 more games and cut to the top 6.  Top 6 compete in a 5-game round robin with 30-pin bonus for each win and 15-pin bonus for ties.  A final game position round with bonus pins will finish the day.  18-game total pinfall plus bonus pins determines the final standings for the top 6.
Prize Ratio:  A minimum of 1 in 4 entries will cash in this event

FORMAT IS BASED ON A FIELD OF 96 OR MORE BOWLERS

Format Stipulation #1 -- The 3-game Sunday round that preceeds the Round Robin may be ommitted with a smaller than expected turnout, which means the field would cut directly to the top 6 from the Sunday 9-game round in this instance
Format Stipulation #2 -- If the Armadillo squad ends up being added and we end up with 41 or more bowlers in that squad, then we will take a max of 11 bowlers per squad to Sunday's match play plus 1 wild card based on highest non-qualifying scores from all squads, as we do not want more than 45 bowlers coming back on Sunday.  1 in 4 entries would still cash based on squad cashing ratios.


INCENTIVES
With a minimum of 3 senior bowlers (50 and up), the highest non-cashing senior bowler will receive a last check
With a minimum of 3 lady bowlers, the highest non-cashing lady will receive a last check
