Championships

THE SERIES CHAMPIONSHIPS

The richest events of the year for the LIGBT will be the two end-of-season series championships. The Sport Shot Series Championship will be hosted by Herrill Lanes on the weekend of September 9th & 10th, 2023. The House Shot Championship will be hosted by AMF E. Meadow on the weekend of September 30th & October 1st, 2023. All bowlers are welcomed to compete.

Each event is expected to have a minimum of $5,000 added to the prize fund. Each series host, Herrill Lanes and AMF E. Meadow, are rebating $5 per entry from the 12 events they hosted, to their championship prize fund. Top prizes are expected to pay: $4,000-$2,000-$1,500-$1,000.

The entry fee to each championship is based on the number of events you bowl in each series. The more tournaments you compete in the lower your championship entry fee:

$150 entry fee if you bowl in 0 events

$125 entry fee if you bowl in 1 or 2 events

$100 entry fee if you bowl in 3, 4, or 5 events

$80 entry fee if you bowl in 6 or 7 events

$80 entry fee + FREE BONUS EVENT if you bowl in 8 or more events

THE BONUS TOURNAMENT

The LIGBT wants to reward our most loyal members with a FREE tournament. All bowlers that compete in 8 or more events in a series will be invited to share in a $2,500 bonus prize fund at each championship. Here are how the bonus events work:

All bowlers competing in 8 or more events in a series, and bowl in the championship of that series, will shoot for the following extra guaranteed prizes:

1. $1,000   2. $500   3. $250   4. $150   5. $130   6. $120   7. $115   8. $110   9. $105   10. $100           

These eligible bowlers will use their highest qualifying series in the championship to determine their final cashing position in the bonus tournament. You can only cash once in the bonus prize fund.

 

THE CHAMPIONSHIPS

Each championship will be 2-days (Saturday and Sunday) and will use a 3-game qualifying format with 1 in 8 each squad advancing to the finals and 1 in 4 cashing each squad ($80.) The House Shot Championship will have 3-separate qualifying divisions (scratch-49 & under handicap-50+ handicap) while the Sport Shot Championship will have 1 division plus women and senior guarantees.
