New Date: August 2
This tournament is open to ALL female USBC sanctioned bowlers. PWBA members are welcomed. Youth bowlers are not eligible to participate.
ALL PARTICIPANTS will bowl 6 games of qualifying on the 2019 USBC Queens pattern, moving pairs to a predetermined schedule after each game. The tournament field is limited to a total of 114 bowlers, no more than 6 per pair. 1 in 4 bowlers will be seeded in a single-elimination bracket based on their 6-game scratch score from qualifying. All bowlers advancing to the bracket will receive prize money.
Single-elimination bracket play will consist of best 2 out of 3 game matches. The winner will move on, and the loser will be eliminated. Should there be a tie, there will be a one ball roll off until we have a winner. The final bowler at the end of all rounds will take home the title.
The entry fee will be $80; $16 lineage and $64 prize fund. All bowlers advancing to bracket match play will cash. Based on 60 entries, 1st place will receive $1,100, and last cashing at least $120. The winner will also receive a paid entry into the 2021 USBC Queens. The entry may be declined and the winner will receive half of the entry fee in cash. The remaining amount will be applied to the following year. The top Senior (50+ as of the date of the event), not cashing in the regular tournament, will receive $80.
Side pots and brackets will be available during the event. Brackets are $5, unlimited, and begin on games 1, 2, 3 and 4. Reverse brackets are $5, unlimited, and begin on games 6, 5, 4 and 3. High Game Pot is $20 and will only pay the top 2 bowlers each game. Survivor Pot is $20 and will pay at least the top 3 bowlers after game 6.
