I qualified by winning 1st or 2nd place. Why would I continue to bowl the qualifiers?
There are several reasons to keep bowling.
- PRACTICE FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIPS - You will get a better understanding of the way the lanes play and how they breakdown. Bowlers who bowl all 8 qualifiers will have an advantage in the championships over bowlers who bowl once or twice.
- TOTAL POINTS BONUS - The points leader after the first 4 qualifiers and after the next four qualifiers will receive a $500 bonus courtesy of Jones Mortgage Group. All bowlers are eligible for the bonus.
- REFUNDS ON ENTRY FEES - Bowl in the top 25% and you get all the side action for free.. We are paying out 1 in 4 at each qualifier. 12 bowlers will get their entry fee refunded (based on full fields of 48 bowlers).
- SIDE ACTION - Brackets starting the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th game of qualifying as well as high game pots.
- TOP 8 POT - The top 8 bowlers in the pot compete in single game elimination match play immediately following qualifiers. $1,440 total payout based on 48 entries, pays 8 spots, $30 entry fee.
I missed the first few qualifiers. Am I locked out of qualifying by points?
- The points field is still open and will change after each qualifier. There will be bowlers who are leading "qualifying by points" that may take first or second place in future qualifiers. This automatically advances them to the championships and opens up the points field for other bowlers to qualify.
- The points system is also weighted to allow bowlers who score higher, and have missed a few qualifiers, to advance.
Can I win more than one qualifier?
- You can bowl as many qualifiers as you like, but you can not win additional spots in the championships.
- Once you have qualified by position (1st or 2nd place finish), you can continue to bowl for side action and overall point leader money. Your scores will not affect other bowlers ability to qualify.
What is the difference between point leaders and point qualifiers?
- POINT LEADERS are based on total points regardless of status.
- POINT LEADERS who have finished in 1st or 2nd place have no affect on POINT QUALIFIERS.
- POINT QUALIFIERS are bowlers who haven't finished in 1st or 2nd place but are trying to advance to the championships based on their overall points.
