This application is a continuationinpart of copending U.S. patent application Ser. No. 10/617,993, filed Jul. 11, 2003, which claims priority to U.S. Provisional Patent Application Ser. No. 60/396,391, filed Jul. 11, 2002.

This is a one game scratch match play single elimination tournament. It is open to all league bowlers who pay a $1.00 Per Week Entry Fee for the entire league season. This fee is to be added to the regular league fees consisting of lineage and league prize fund. Eligible league bowlers will be placed into eight average divisions based according to their highest average in the current league season with a minimum of 60 games. If an eligible league bowler does not have a current average with a minimum of 60 games then they can use their highest average in the last three years or they can use their highest lifetime average with a minimum of 60 games. League bowlers who bowl and pay partial league seasons will be allowed to bowl in the tournament if they meet the minimum number of games requirement. Some league teams have more members than the league maximum weekly requirement such as seven regular paying members on a fivemember league team. The proprietor will make the decision on all bowler eligibility. They can either require the partial league season bowler to pay the difference in tournament prize fund money between a full season league bowler and the partial league season bowler from that particular league or they can absorb the loss. This is one reason why the tournament doesn't take 100% of the tournament prize fund money. The goal of this tournament is to be fair to the proprietor and their league bowlers. If an eligible league bowler does not meet any of the above rules for establishing a tournament average, then the proprietor can place the eligible league bowler in an appropriate average division based on the proprietor's knowledge of the game. The tournament management reserves the rights to readjust any bowlers average at any time during the tournament. Any bowler whose average has been readjusted will be placed in another average division.

All eligible league bowlers will be separated by their averages into Eight Different Average Divisions. In Division I are averages 215 or more. In Division II are averages 200 to 214. In Division III are averages 185 to 199. In Division IV are averages 170 to 184. In Division V are averages 155 to 169. In Division VI are averages 140 to 154. In Division VII are averages 125 to 139. In Division VIII are averages 124 or less. One tournament champion will come from each of these average divisions. Eligible tournament bowlers will compete only against other bowlers within their average division in all rounds of competition. With this format bowlers of equal ability will be competing against bowlers of the same ability.

This tournament will consist of three separate rounds of competition. The First Round will be held locally. It is the only round an eligible league bowler can have multiple entries in the tournament. Entries in the First Round will be based on the number of leagues a bowler pays and participates in. Bowl and pay in one league gets you one entry in the First Round. Bowl and pay in two leagues gets you two entries in the First Round, etc.

Before the First Round begins the proprietor will compile a list of all of the bowlers in their center and sort the eligible bowlers from the ineligible bowlers. They will sort the eligible bowlers into the appropriate eight average divisions while also listing the number of entries a bowler is entitled to have due to the number of leagues they bowled and paid in.

The First Round will be one game scratch match play single elimination eightbowler brackets with one person prevailing and continuing on to the Second Round. In other words, win three games in a row in an eightbowler bracket and you go on to the Second Round.

All eightbowler brackets will be randomly drawn. Bowler One will bowl Bowler Two, Bowler Three will bowl Bowler Four, Bowler Five will bowl Bowler Six, Bowler Seven will bowl Bowler Eight in the first game of the match game. The winner between Bowler One and Bowler Two will bowl one game against the winner between Bowler Three and Bowler Four. The winner between Bowler Five and Bowler Six will bowl one game against the winner of the match between Bowler Seven and Bowler Eight The winners of these matches will bowl one game with the winner of this match going on to the Second Round.

One game match play will have two bowlers on a pair of lanes. One bowler will be assigned the left lane and the other bowler will be assigned the right lane. The bowler on the left lane will start the game and complete one frame on that lane. The bowler on the right lane will bowl two frames one on each lane starting with the right lane. From this moment on both bowlers will take turns bowling two frames at a time one frame on each lane until the bowler who started on the right lane has completed their game. Followed by one frame on the right lane from the bowler who started on the left lane, thus completing one game of match play. This procedure of match play is called pro style.

If there are ties in match play, then they shall be broken by a ninth and tenth frame rolloff. The bowler who finished the match on the left lane bowls the ninth frame of the tiebreaker on the left lane. The opponent bowls their ninth frame on the right lane and the tenth frame on the left lane. The first bowler then bowls the tenth frame on the right lane completing the tiebreaker. If a tie exists after the rolloff, the sequence is repeated until a winner is determined.

The seven losing bowlers in an eightbowler bracket are out of the tournament unless they have more entries left or they are randomly chosen to fill any of the remaining eightbowler brackets that need seven or fewer bowlers. Bowlers with the most entries will have the first preference in filling those eightbowler brackets that need seven or fewer bowlers. Bowlers with an equal number of entries will be randomly drawn in order to fill those eightbowler brackets that need seven or fewer bowlers. The eightbowler brackets will continue until every bowler's entries have been used except for those bowlers with unused entries who have qualified for the Second Round by winning their eightbowler bracket.

Those bowlers who have used all of the entries are out of the tournament unless there are eightbowler brackets that need seven or fewer bowlers and all of the bowlers with entries have been used. These bowlers will be placed in a random drawing to choose the bowlers to fill the available spots. If more bowlers are needed to fill any of the eightbowler brackets and they have used all of their entries, then first preference will be given to those bowlers who were not chosen to fill any of the previous random drawings. If there are less than eight bowlers available to fill an eightbowler bracket, then the bowlers with the most unused entries will be given first preference to any byes in the first game of match play. If the bowlers have an equal number of entries, then there will be a random drawing for the placement of the bowlers in the eightbowler bracket. If a bowling center has too few bowlers to fill one eightbowler bracket in one of the average divisions, then the tournament director will chose another center for those bowlers to compete in the First Round.

The Second Round will be held regionally in 512 separate locations. These locations will be as equally distributed as possible. In other words Detroit will have more Second Round locations than San Francisco because there are currently more league bowlers in Detroit than there are in San Francisco. The First Round winners will be placed in Second Round locations as close to their local center as it is possible. The Second Round bowlers will compete in one game scratch match play single elimination until one bowler prevails undefeated. If byes are needed then they will occur in the first game of the Second Round. This will be accomplished by subtracting the total number of bowlers over 64 or 128 and then subtracting that number from the same 64 or 128 in order to get the number of byes needed in the Second Round. The Second Round will have random drawings in order to determine byes and match play opponents. All bowlers will be treated equally with no preferences.

EXAMPLE: If there are 65 bowlers in the Second Round location then you subtract 64 from 65 to get 1. (65−64=1) Now subtract 1 from 64 to get the number of bowlers receiving a bye in the first game of match play in the Second Round. (64−1=63) So 63 bowlers will receive a one game bye in the first game of match play in the Second Round. The first game of match play in the Second Round will have 2 bowlers (65−63=2) competing against each other. There will be a random drawing for these 2 bowlers in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. The second game of match play will consist of the 63 bowlers who had received byes and the 1 winner from the first game of match play. These 64 bowlers (63+1=64) will be placed in a random drawing in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. All match play losers will be finished in the tournament. All match play winners will continue competing in one game scratch match play until one bowler has qualified for the Championship Round.

EXAMPLE: If there are 98 bowlers in the Second Round location then you subtract 64 from 98 to get 34. (98−64=34) Now subtract 34 from 64 to get the number of bowlers receiving a bye in the first game of match play in the Second Round. (64−34=30) So 30 bowlers will receive a one game bye in the first game of match play in the Second Round. The first game of match play in the Second Round will have 68 bowlers (98−30=68) competing against each other. There will be a random drawing for these 68 bowlers in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. The second game of match play will consist of the 30 bowlers who had received byes and the 34 winners from the first game of match play. These 64 bowlers (30+34=64) will be placed in a random drawing in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. All match play losers will be finished in the tournament. All match play winners will continue competing in one game scratch match play until one bowler has qualified for the Championship Round.

EXAMPLE: If there are 137 bowlers in the Second Round location then you subtract 128 from 137 to get 9. (137−128=9) Now subtract 9 from 128 to get the number of bowlers receiving a bye in the first game of match play in the Second Round (128−9=119). So 119 bowlers will receive a one game bye in the first game of match play in the Second Round. The first game of match play in the Second Round will have 18 bowlers (137−119=18) competing against each other. There will be a random drawing for these 18 bowlers in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. The second game of match play will consist of the 119 bowlers who had received byes and the 9 winners from the first game of match play. These 128 bowlers (119+9=128) will be placed in a random drawing in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. All match play losers will be finished in the tournament. All match play winners will continue competing in one game scratch match play until one bowler has qualified for the Championship Round.

The Second Round winners will receive an all expense paid trip to compete in the Championship Round. The Championship Round will be held in a large metropolitan city. The 512 Second Round winners of each average division will have a random drawing in order to match up first game opponents and their lane assignments. This will be a one game scratch match play single elimination format. The 512 bowlers in the first game will have 256 winners and 256 losers. The 256 losers will be finished competing in the Championship Round. The 256 winners will have a random drawing in order to match up the second game opponents and their lane assignments. The 256 bowlers in the second game will have 128 winners and 128 losers. The 128 losers will be finished competing in the Championship Round. The 128 winners will have a random drawing in order to match up the third game opponents and their lane assignments. The tournament will continue with this format until there are four bowlers remaining. The 4 remaining bowlers will have a random drawing in order to match up opponents and their lane assignments. There will be two winners and two losers. The losers will bowl against each other to find out who will finish in THIRD PLACE and FOURTH PLACE in the tournament. They will have a random drawing for lane assignments and then they will bowl. The two winners will have a random drawing for lane assignments. They will bowl one game with the winner having won the CHAMPIONSHIP in that average division and the loser finishing in SECOND PLACE. There will be 8 TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS, one in each average division.

Now that the championship process has been described it is time to describe the tournament prize fund. There are approximately 3,200,000 sanctioned winterseason league bowlers. These bowlers compete in winter leagues from 30 to 36 weeks each year. This tournament will receive $1.00 per week from every league bowler participating in the tournament plus their reentries in the First Round that comes from multiple league participation. This tournament will not receive any tournament prize fund money from the bowlers who were added to fill a First Round eightbowler bracket after all of their paid entries were used. This tournament will keep $25 per bowler per league for entry use in the tournament prize fund payoff. The proprietor will keep all tournament prize fund money in excess of the $25 per bowler per league to be used to pay for First Round tournament in house expenses such as lineage and labor. They will also keep the full entry share of the tournament prize fund from the bowlers who bowled in multiple leagues and qualified for the Second Round before they used all of their entries. With 100% national participation the tournament prize fund will receive $80,000,000. (3,200,000×$25=$80,000,000) This is what the tournament prize payoff will approximately look like with 100%, 50%, and 25% national league participation.

The 512 bowlers from each average division who qualified to bowl in the Championship Round will get an all expense paid trip to the location of the Championship Round. (transportation, food, and lodging).

This tournament is an attempt to help the bowling industry and league bowlers who have been loyal participants of the sport. The bowling industry has lost over 5 million league bowlers in the last 15 years while it has maintained its participation from the 50 million nonleague bowlers over the same period of time. The bowling industry needs to have a national tournament for all league bowlers who compete on a weekly basis. This tournament will give all league bowlers a chance to compete against other league bowlers of equal ability. The proprietor's' should benefit from this tournament because current league bowlers will be encouraged to bowl in additional leagues so that they would get additional entries in the First Round of this tournament. Nonleague bowlers will want to join a league so that they can have a chance to win money from one of the many large prize fund purses. Future tournaments can have more than one tournament per year with the additional tournaments changing the formats like having men competing against only men and women competing against only women, and/or changing pin difference in the average divisions, and/or changing the bracket sizes.

Some activities and/or sports such as golf can use this tournament process.

Televised Average Divisional Bowling

Bowlers with a current USBC membership (which was the ABC/WIBC) and an average with a minimum of 21 games bowled in sanctioned league play can compete in one of twelve separate average divisions. These bowlers will compete in a one game scratch single elimination format, only within their average division. These average divisions are (220 or more, 219 to 210, 209 to 200, 199 to 190, 189 to 180, 179 to 170, 169 to 160, 159 to 150, 149 to 140, 139 to 130, 129 to 120, and 119 or less). The bowlers in each division in each city are sorted for single elimination match play similar to the regional round in the nontelevised national tournament since there will be a different number of entries in each division from each city. There will be no need for the uniformity of the eightbowler bracket since the entry fee isn't paid through the league season. Depending on the number of entries in each division some bowlers will receive a bye in the first game of match play. The goal will be to have no byes thereafter since the second game will have the number of bowlers remaining in groupings of 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, etc. There will be a cash entry fee with a chance to compete on television and bowl against a guest star. Several cities will be chosen from the largest television markets but only one city is necessary to start the television show. From these cities bowlers will compete with one bowler coming from each average division from each city or the final two bowlers from each average division if only one city is used to start the television show. These divisional winners from each city will receive an all expense paid trip to a city chosen later where they can compete in a one game scratch single elimination format until only two bowlers remain from each average division. These remaining bowlers will compete in a televised final with one show per average division; therefore there will be 12 televised finals.

The televised show will have the two remaining bowlers from their average division bowling in a one game scratch single elimination format with the winner earning the top cash prize and the loser earning half as much money. The winner of the game will earn the chance to bowl a one game scratch match against a guest star. The guest star could perform a 5minute act similar to the old variety shows. The guest star will bowl a one game scratch match against the winner from the previous match of the two divisional average finalists. Before bowling the match the winner of the previous match and the guest star will each draw a name randomly from viewers who have sent in their name, address, and phone number vie email or regular mail. They will then represent that individual in their match and whatever they win from their match the viewer randomly chosen will also win. The winner of the match between the guest star and the division champion will earn a cash prize while the loser earns half as much cash. If there is still time remaining in the televised show then individuals from the audience can be randomly selected to throw a first shot against all ten pins winning a small cash prize for throwing a strike.

Because this tournament is televised and with the opportunity of bowling against a guest star it won't be necessary to have a large cash prize in order to stimulate interest in participation from league bowlers. Since league bowlers should be thrilled to possibly bowl on television and compete against a guest star the size of the cash prize should be less important therefore allowing for more average divisions and increased competitiveness.

The divisional television show would be best if it were on a national network but it would be acceptable if it were on a local station in several large cities throughout the United States. Golf or other games could have this same divisional format as a televised show.

EXAMPLE: Before the First Round begins the proprietor will compile a list of all of the bowlers in their center and sort the eligible bowlers from the ineligible bowlers. They will sort the eligible bowlers into one of the appropriate eight average divisions while also listing the number of entries each bowler is entitled to have due to the number of leagues they bowled and paid in.

There are 27 bowlers who are ineligible to bowl in the tournament because they were nonpaying subs in a league (Abram, Agnes, Alma, Avery, Basil, Bess, Beth, Betsy, Cecil, Cora, Curt, Dean, Dolly, Doris, Doug, Drew, Ed, Ellen, Eve, Gail, Guy, Hans, Helen, Jason, Kate, May, and Wanda).

There are 159 bowlers who are eligible to bowl in the tournament because they were league bowlers who paid during their league participation. They will be sorted into one of the appropriate eight average divisions and have the number of entries listed for each bowler due to the number of leagues they bowled and paid in.

Since there are 8 bowlers in this average division, there will be one eightbowler bracket with a random drawing in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. Since there are two bowlers with more than one entry (Ken (3) and Mark (2)), there will be at least one more eightbowler bracket because the brackets are not finished until all of the entries are used by every bowler. The following first game match ups in this eightbowler bracket was the result of the random drawing.

8 PAID ENTRIES 

Steve has qualified for the Second Round. Since all of the bowlers in this eightbowler bracket had at least one unused entry, there were eight paid entries that go into the tournament prize fund.

Since two bowlers still have unused entries (Ken(2) and Mark(1)), there will be another eightbowler bracket. Since there are only seven bowlers available to bowl in the next eightbowler bracket, then the bowler with the most unused entries will receive a bye in the first game of this bracket. Ken (2) is that bowler so he will receive a bye in the first game of this bracket. Mark (1) is in this eightbowler bracket because he has one unused entry. Since Mark (1) did not receive a bye in the first game of this bracket, he will be in a random drawing to match up opponents and lane assignments in this bracket. There are 5 bowlers who have no entries. (Faye (0), Gabe (0), Loy (0), Mike (0), and Sean (0)) These 5 bowlers would be finished with the tournament if not for the need to have enough bowlers to fill this eightbowler bracket. These 5 bowlers and Mark (1) will have a random drawing in order to match up opponents and lane assignments in this bracket. The following first game match ups in this eightbowler bracket was the result of the random drawing.

2 PAID ENTRIES 

Loy has qualified for the Second Round. There were only two paid entries from this eightbowler bracket that goes into the tournament prize fund because of the five bowlers with no entries and the bye.

Only one bowler (Ken (1)) still has an unused entry, this will be the last eightbowler bracket in this average division. Since there are only six bowlers available to bowl in the next eightbowler bracket there will be two byes in the first game of this bracket. The two bowlers with the most unused entries will receive the two byes in the first game of this bracket. Ken (1) is the only bowler with any unused entries so he gets the bye. Since Faye(−0), Gabe(−0), Mike(−0), and Sean(−0) were in the last bracket as fill bowlers with no entries and this is their second bracket to be used as fill bowlers, then Mark(0) gets the other bye because he had an entry in the last bracket and this is his first bracket to be used as a fill bowler. Since Ken(1) and Mark(0) receive byes in the first game, then Faye(−0), Gabe(−0), Mike(−0), and Sean(−0) will have a random drawing in order to match up opponents and lane assignments in the first game of the next bracket. The following first game match ups in this eightbowler bracket was the result of the random drawing.

Since there are no bowlers who have any unused entries, this average division is finished with its brackets. The proprietor owes the tournament prize fund 11 entries. ($25×11=$275) All of the entries were used in the brackets. Three bowlers have qualified to bowl in the Second Round from this the 215 or More Average Division. (Steve, Loy, and Ken)

George has qualified for the Second Round. Since all of the bowlers in this eightbowler bracket had at least one unused entry, there were eight paid entries that go into the tournament prize fund.

The five bowlers not chosen will be in the next eightbowler bracket. Those bowlers from the first eightbowler bracket who have the most entries remaining will fill the three other spots. There are four bowlers from the first eightbowler bracket who have entries still remaining. Jacob(2) has more entries then the other bowlers. Jacob(2) receives first preference in the bracket. The other bowlers who each have one entry remaining will be in a random drawing for the other two spots in the eightbowler bracket. There are three bowlers Terry(1), Glen(1), and Diana(1) in the random drawing. Terry(1) and Diana(1) were drawn for the two remaining spots in this eightbowler bracket. Glen(1) will be in the next eightbowler bracket. Judy(0), Jim(0), and Dave(0) are out of the tournament unless there is a need to have bowlers fill any future eightbowler brackets.

Don(2), Tom(1), Angie(1), Woody(2), Toby(2), Jacob(2), Terry(1), and Diana(1) are the eight bowlers in the next eightbowler bracket.

Toby has qualified for the Second Round. Since all of the bowlers in this eightbowler bracket had at least one unused entry, there were eight paid entries that go into the tournament prize fund.

Tom(0), Angie(0), Terry(0), and Diana(0) will join Judy(0), Jim(0), and Dave(0) as bowlers who are out of the tournament unless there is a need to have bowlers who have no remaining entries fill any future eightbowler brackets.

There are still four bowlers with unused entries. Don(2) has two unused entries. Glen(1) who was not in the last eightbowler bracket has one unused entry. Woody(1) and Jacob(1) each have one unused entry. The bowlers who have no remaining entries will fill the other four spots in this eightbowler bracket.

Since there are seven bowlers who have no remaining entries, they will be in a random drawing in order to fill the four spots in this eightbowler bracket. Judy(0), Jim(0), Dave(0), Tom(0), Angie(0), Terry(0), and Diana(0) are the seven bowlers in the random drawing for these four spots in this eightbowler bracket. Dave(0), Diana(0), Angie(0), and Jim(0) are the four bowlers who were drawn from the random drawing to fill this eightbowler bracket. Judy(0), Tom(0), and Terry(0) are out of the tournament unless there is a need to have bowlers fill any future eightbowler brackets.

4 PAID ENTRIES 

Glen has qualified for the Second Round. There were only four paid entries from this eightbowler bracket that goes into the tournament prize fund because of the four bowlers with no entries.

Since only one bowler (Don (1)) still has an unused entry, this will be the last eightbowler bracket in this average division. Bowlers who have no remaining entries will fill the other seven spots in this eightbowler bracket. The five bowlers (Jacob(0), Judy(0), Terry(0), Tom(0), and Woody(0)) who have no remaining entries and were not drawn to fill any previous brackets will have first preference for five of the seven spots in this bracket over the four bowlers (Angie(−0), Dave(−0), Diana(−0), and Jim(−0)) who have no entries remaining and were drawn to fill any previous brackets. So this means there are six spots taken in this eightbowler bracket with the other two spots to be filled in a random drawing from the four bowlers (Angie(−0), Dave(−0), Diana(−0), and Jim(−0)) who have no remaining entries and were drawn to fill any of the previous brackets. Diana (−0) and Jim (−0) were randomly drawn to fill this bracket.

These eight bowlers Don (1), Jacob (0), Judy (0), Terry (0), Tom (0), Woody (0), Diana (−0), and Jim (−0) will be in the last eightbowler bracket. They will have a random drawing in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. The following eightbowler bracket was the result of the random drawing.

Since there are no bowlers who have any unused entries, this average division is finished with its brackets. The proprietor owes the tournament prize fund 21 entries. ($25×21=$525) Three entries were not used in the brackets. (George had two and Toby had one.) The proprietor gets to use the money from these unused entries to offset any expenses incurred while running the tournament.

Four bowlers have qualified to bowl in the Second Round from this the 200 to 214 AVERAGE DIVISION. (George, Toby, Glen, and Tom)

Since there are twentythree bowlers, there will be two full eightbowler brackets and one eightbowler bracket with seven bowlers. All of the bowlers are placed in the three eightbowler brackets from a random drawing with the two full eightbowler brackets bowling until a Second Round qualifier from each bracket has been accomplished. While the one eightbowler bracket with seven bowlers will wait to bowl until the other two full eightbowler brackets are completed.

The first full eightbowler bracket is Jenny(1), Jeff(2), John(2), Eugene(3), Robert(2), Barbara(2), Belle(1), and Paul(1). The second full eightbowler bracket is Sam(3), Amy(1), Cary(1), Lee(4), Aaron(4), Alex(3), Rose(2), and Oliver(1).

These two eightbowler brackets will each have separate random drawings in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. The other eightbowler bracket with seven bowlers will wait until both of the other full eightbowler brackets are finished in order to fill their eighth spot. These are the seven bowlers in the third eightbowler bracket. (James(1), Ralph(1), Nathan(1), Ira(1), Luke(1), Wayne(1), and Phil(1)) Jenny(1), Jeff(2), John(2), Eugene(3), Robert(2), Barbara(2), Belle(1), and Paul(1) are the eight bowlers in the first eightbowler bracket. There is a random drawing in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. The following eightbowler bracket was the result of the random drawing.

There are seven bowlers in the next eightbowler bracket so there is a need to find one bowler to fill this bracket. That bowler will come from the two previously finished brackets. If they still have any unused entries, the bowler with the most unused entries will have first preference for the one remaining spot in this bracket. There are two bowlers who have the most unused entries. Aaron(3) and Lee(3) both have the most unused entries of the bowlers from the two previously finished brackets. These two bowlers will have a random drawing for the one remaining spot in this bracket. Aaron(3) is the bowler chosen to fill this bracket.

Aaron(3), Ira(1), James(1), Luke(1), Nathan(1), Phil(1), Ralph(1), and Wayne(1) are the eight bowlers in this bracket. Now that the bracket is full, there is a random drawing in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. The following eightbowler bracket was the result of the random drawing.

There are nine bowlers who have unused entries (Lee(3), Aaron(2), Alex(2), Eugene(2), Sam(2), Robert(1), Barbara(1), John(1), and Jeff(1)). These nine bowlers will have a random drawing to fill the next eightbowler bracket. One bowler will be left out of this bracket. The bowlers who have the most unused entries will have first preference for the eight spots in this bracket. Lee(3), Aaron(2), Alex(2), Eugene(2), and Sam(2) will occupy five of the eight spots in this bracket.

Since there are four bowlers who have the fewest unused entries with three spots available, then there will be a random drawing to fill these three remaining spots. Barbara(1), John(1), and Robert(1) are the three bowlers chosen to fill this bracket. Jeff(1) is the bowler left out of this bracket.

Lee(3), Aaron(2), Alex(2), Eugene(2), Sam(2), Robert(1), Barbara(1), and John(1) are the eight bowlers in this bracket. Now that this bracket is full, there is a random drawing in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. The following eightbowler bracket was the result of the random drawing.

5 PAID ENTRIES 

Eugene has qualified for the Second Round. There were only five paid entries from this eightbowler bracket that goes into the tournament prize fund because of the three bowlers with no entries.

Phil(−0), Oliver(−0), and Barbara(−0) are out of the tournament until all of the bowlers who have no entries and were not chosen in random drawings to fill brackets are used.

Since only one bowler Lee(1) has one unused entry, this will be the last eightbowler bracket in this average division. The bowlers who have no remaining entries will fill the other seven spots in this eightbowler bracket. They will be placed in a random drawing to fill the seven remaining spots in this eightbowler bracket.

Sam(0), Aaron(0), and Jeff(0), will join Amy(0), Belle(0), Cary(0), James(0), Jenny(0), John(0), Luke(0), Nathan(0), Ralph(0), Robert(0), and Wayne(0) as bowlers who have no remaining entries and were not chosen to fill any previous eightbowler brackets. These bowlers will have preference over the three bowlers (Phil(−0), Oliver(−0), and Barbara(−0)) who have no remaining entries and were chosen to fill any previous eightbowler brackets.

Phil(−0), Oliver(−0), and Barbara(−0) will not be in the random drawing to fill these seven spots because they were already chosen to fill a previous eightbowler bracket. There are enough bowlers who have no remaining entries and were not chosen to fill any previous eightbowler brackets to fill the seven available spots.

Sam(0), Aaron(0), Jeff(0), Amy(0), Belle(0), Cary(0), James(0), Jenny(0), John(0), Luke(0), Nathan(0), Ralph(0), Robert(0), and Wayne(0) will be placed in the random drawing to fill the seven spots in this bracket.

Ralph(0), Wayne(0), Sam(0), Luke(0), Robert(0), Jenny(0), and Jeff(0) are the seven bowlers chosen from the random drawing to fill the eightbowler bracket along with Lee(1). Now that the bracket is full, there will be a random drawing to match up opponents and lane assignments. The following eightbowler bracket was the result of the random drawing.

Jenny has qualified for the Second Round. There was only one paid entry from this eightbowler bracket that goes into the tournament prize fund because of the seven bowlers with no entries.

This average division is finished with its brackets because there are no bowlers who have any unused entries. The proprietor owes the tournament prize fund 38 entries. ($25×38=$950) Two entries were not used in the brackets. (Rose and Alex had one each.) The proprietor gets to use the money from the unused entries to offset any expenses incurred while running the tournament. Six bowlers have qualified to bowl in the Second Round from this the 185 to 199 AVERAGE DIVISION. (Paul, Rose, Ira, Alex, Eugene and Jenny)

Justin(0), Yvonne(0), Jack(0), Dale(0), Dan(0), Herman(0), and Pat(0) will join Ted(0), Chris(0), Gus(0), Matt(0), Claude(0), and Eric(0) as bowlers who are out of the tournament unless there is a need to have bowlers who have no remaining entries fill any future eightbowler brackets.

Since one bowler Bob(2) has at least one unused entry, there will be another eightbowler bracket. The bowlers who have no remaining entries will fill the other seven spots in this eightbowler bracket because there are no other bowlers who have any unused entries. All thirteen bowlers who have no remaining entries will be placed in a random drawing to fill the seven spots in this eightbowler bracket because they all have equal preference. Ted(0), Chris(0), Gus(0), Matt(0), Claude(0), Eric(0), Justin(0), Yvonne(0), Jack(0), Dale(0), Dan(0), Herman(0), and Pat(0) are the thirteen bowlers in the random drawing for these seven spots.

1 PAID ENTRY 

Herman has qualified for the Second Round. There was only one paid entry from this eightbowler bracket that goes into the tournament prize fund because of the seven bowlers with no entries.

Ted(−0), Chris(−0), Claude(−0), Pat(−0), Matt(−0), and Justin(−0) are out of the tournament unless there is a need to have bowlers, who have no remaining entries and were chosen to fill previous brackets, fill any future eightbowler brackets.

Since only one bowler (Bob (1)) has one unused entry, this will be the last eightbowler bracket in this average division. Bowlers who have no entries will fill the other seven spots in this eightbowler bracket. Since Dale(0), Dan(0), Eric(0), Gus(0), Jack(0), and Yvonne(0) were not chosen in the previous random drawing to fill an eightbowler bracket from bowlers who have no remaining entries, they will get the first preference to fill this bracket. Since there were only six bowlers who have no entries and were not chosen in the previous random drawing, there is one additional spot needed to fill this bracket. A random drawing with the six bowlers who are out of entries and were chosen to fill a previous eightbowler bracket will fill this one spot. Chris(−0), Claude(−0), Justin(−0), Matt(−0), Ted(−0), and Yvonne(−0) are in the random drawing for the one remaining spot. Claude(−0) is the bowler chosen to fill this bracket.

Bob(1), Dale(0), Dan(0), Eric(0), Gus(0), Jack(0), Yvonne(0), and Claude(−0) are the eight bowlers in the last eightbowler bracket. Now that the bracket is full, there is a random drawing in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. The following eightbowler bracket was the result of the random drawing.

There are nineteen bowlers in this average division; therefore there will be two full eightbowler brackets and one incomplete eightbowler bracket with three bowlers. All of the bowlers are placed in the three eightbowler brackets from a random drawing with the two full eightbowler brackets bowling until a Second Round qualifier from each bracket has been accomplished. While the one incomplete eightbowler bracket with three bowlers will wait until the other two full eightbowler brackets are completed to fill the bracket.

The first full eightbowler bracket is Edna(1), Jeanie(1), Karen(1), Ivan(1), Melvin(1), Ezra (3), Sallie (1), and Barry(1). The second full eightbowler bracket is Tony(1), Regan(2), Penny(1), Chloe(1), David(2), Dusty(1), Carol(1), and Zack(1). The two full eightbowler brackets will have separate random drawings in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. The eightbowler bracket with three bowlers will wait until both eightbowler brackets are finished in order to fill their bracket. Max(2), Robbie(3), and Claire(1) are the three bowlers in the incomplete eightbowler bracket. Edna(1), Jeanie(1), Karen(1), Ivan(1), Melvin(1), Ezra(3), Sallie(1), and Barry(1) are the eight bowlers in the first eightbowler bracket.

Ezra(2) and Regan(1) have unused entries. They will be joined with Robbie(3), Max(2), and Claire (1) in an eightbowler bracket thus causing a need for three spots to fill this bracket. These three spots will come from the bowlers who used their only entry in the previous brackets. Barry(0), Jeanie(0), Melvin(0), Ivan(0), Edna(0), Karen(0), Zack(0), Tony(0), Chloe(0), Carol(0), Dusty(0), and Penny(0) will be placed in a random drawing to choose three bowlers to fill this bracket.

Regan(0) and Claire(0) will join Barry(0), Jeanie(0), Melvin(0), Edna(0), Karen(0), Tony(0), Chloe(0), Carol(0), and Dusty(0) as bowlers who are out of the tournament unless there is a need to have bowlers who have no remaining entries fill any future eightbowler brackets.

Ivan(−0), Zack(−0), and Penny (−0) must wait until all of the bowlers who have no remaining entries and were not chosen to fill any of the previous brackets are used to fill any future eightbowler brackets.

Robbie(2) and Ezra(1) still have unused entries therefore at least one more eightbowler bracket is needed. Six bowlers who have no remaining entries and were not chosen to fill any of the previous brackets will fill this bracket. Since there are eleven bowlers who have no remaining entries and were not chosen to fill any of the previous brackets, then the six available spots will come from these eleven bowlers in a random drawing. (Barry(0), Jeanie(0), Melvin(0), Edna(0), Karen(0), Tony(0), Chloe(0), Carol(0), Dusty(0), Regan(0), and Claire(0))

Chloe(0), Edna(0), Dusty(0), Carol(0), Regan(0), and Jeanie(0) are chosen from the random drawing to fill this bracket.

Robbie(2), Ezra(1), Chloe(0), Edna(0), Dusty(0), Carol(0), Regan(0), and Jeanie(0), are in a random drawing in order to match up opponents and lane assignments in the next eightbowler bracket. The following eightbowler bracket was the result of the random drawing.

Carol(−0), Chloe(−0), Edna(−0), Regan(−0), Jeanie(−0), and Dusty(−0) will join Ivan (−0), Zack(−0), and Penny(−0) as bowlers who must wait until all of the bowlers who have no remaining entries and were not chosen to fill any of the previous brackets are used to fill any future eightbowler brackets.

Since only one bowler (Robbie(1)) has one unused entry, this will be the last eightbowler bracket in this average division. Bowlers who have no remaining entries will fill the other seven spots in this eightbowler bracket. The five bowlers who have no remaining entries and were not chosen to fill any of the previous brackets will have preference to fill this bracket over the nine bowlers who have no remaining entries and were chosen to fill any of the previous brackets. The five bowlers with preference are Barry(0), Melvin(0), Karen(0), Tony(0), and Claire(0). There are now six bowlers in this eightbowler bracket so two more bowlers are needed to fill this bracket. The two bowlers who will fill this bracket will come out of the random drawing from the nine bowlers who have no remaining entries and were chosen to fill any of the previous brackets. Ivan(−0), Penny(−0), Zack(−0), Carol(−0), Chloe(−0), Edna(−0), Regan(−0), Jeanie(−0), and Dusty(−0) are the nine bowlers in the random drawing. Dusty(−0) and Jeanie(−0) are the two bowlers chosen from the random drawing to fill this bracket.

Robbie(1), Barry(0), Melvin(0), Karen(0), Tony(0), Claire(0), Dusty(−0), and Jeanie(−0) are the eight bowlers in the last eightbowler bracket.

Since there are twentyfive bowlers, there will be three full eightbowler brackets and one eightbowler bracket with one bowler. All of the bowlers are placed into a random drawing in order to separate the bowlers into the four eightbowler brackets. The three full eightbowler brackets will compete until a Second Round qualifier has been accomplished. While the eightbowler bracket with one bowler will wait to compete after all three of the other eightbowler brackets are completed in order to fill the other seven spots in the bracket.

The first full eightbowler bracket is Earl(1), Zelda(1), Lucy(2), Earnest(1), Dawayn(1), Beau(2), Roy(1), and Adam(2). The second full eightbowler bracket is Karmylle(1), Jane(1), Walt(2), Wendy(1), Mary(2), Suzie(1), Virgil(1), and Molly(1). The third full eightbowler bracket is Amos(1), Heidi(1), Gene(2), Margot(1), Dawn(2), Billy(1), Barney(1), and Dick(2). Each of these eightbowler brackets will have separate random drawings in order to match up opponents and lane assignments.

The eightbowler bracket with just one bowler Daphne(1) will wait until the three full brackets are finished to completely fill this bracket.

Earl(1), Zelda(1), Lucy(2), Earnest(1), Dawayn(1), Beau(2), Roy(1), and Adam(2) are the eight bowlers in the first full eightbowler bracket. There is a random drawing in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. The following eightbowler bracket was the result of the random drawing.

Since there are thirtyone bowlers in this average division, there will be three full eightbowler brackets and one eightbowler bracket with seven bowlers. All of the bowlers are placed in a random drawing with the three full eightbowler brackets bowling until a Second Round qualifier has been accomplished. While the one eightbowler bracket with seven bowlers will wait to bowl until all three of the full eight bowler brackets are completed.

The first full eightbowler bracket is Joyce(1), Claudia(1), Janet(1), Hugh(1), Joy(1), Polly(1), Neal(1), and Henry(1). The second full eightbowler bracket is Anita(1), Sandy(1), Rachel(1), Greg(1), Pam(1), Jay(1), Gloria(1), and Tammy(1). The third eightbowler bracket is Brent(1), Karl(1), Jon(1), Amie(1), Ned(1), Ray(1), Phoebe(1), and Clyde(1). Each of these three full eightbowler brackets will have separate random drawings in order to match up opponents and lane assignments.

The incomplete eightbowler bracket with these seven bowlers Gary(1), Ann(1), Jill(1), Peggy(1), Colin(1), Janice(1), and Amon(1) will wait until the three full brackets are finished in order to completely fill this incomplete eightbowler bracket.

Joyce(1), Claudia(1), Janet(1), Hugh(1), Joy(1), Polly(1), Neal(1), and Henry(1)are the eight bowlers in the first full eightbowler bracket. There is a random drawing in order to match up opponents and lane assignments. The following eightbowler bracket was the result of the random drawing.

Since there are no bowlers who have any unused entries, this average division is finished with the brackets. The proprietor owes the tournament prize fund 24 entries. ($25×24=$600) All of the entries were used in the brackets. Three bowlers have qualified to bowl in the second round from this the 124 or Less AVERAGE DIVISION. (Felix, Zoe, and Fred)

In the previous example there are three bowlers who have qualified to bowl in the Second Round from the 124 or Less AVERAGE DIVISION. Felix, Zoe, and Fred are joined with seventyseven bowlers who have qualified from other Bowling Centers to bowl in this Second Round location. Since the total number of bowlers bowling in this Second Round location is more than 64 but less than 128, the tournament director will use 64 as the base number in order to find out how many bowlers will receive a bye in the first game of the Second Round.

Since there are 80 bowlers, the tournament director will subtract 64 from 80 to get 16. (80−64=16) Now they will subtract 16 from 64 to get 48, the number of bowlers receiving a bye in the first game of match play in the Second Round. (64−16=48) Fortyeight bowlers will receive a bye in the first game of match play in this Second Round. The first game of match play in the Second Round will have 32 bowlers (80−48=32) competing against each other.

These 80 bowlers will have a random drawing in order to separate the bowlers who receive a bye from the bowlers who will compete in the first game of the Second Round.

The most unique aspect of this tournament is that all of the league bowlers in the entire nation can compete in the same tournament and everyone can have a fair and equal chance to win because the tournament has eight separate average divisions so that each league bowler will be competing against only bowlers of equal ability. All of the league bowlers will bowl scratch one game single elimination.

Another unique aspect is the eightbowler bracket held in the same bowling center the bowler participates in league play. This enables a national tournament to start with 3,200,000 league bowler and reduces it to a very manageable approximate one hundred or so at each regional location.

Another unique aspect is the tournament fee added to the regular league fee this allows the bowling proprietor to collect the tournament fee in small increments through the league the bowler is participating in also unique with this that allows all of this to work is the multiple entry aspect giving a league bowler an additional entry for each additional league they participate in.

Because the entire tournament format works flawlessly on a national level is the true uniqueness of this tournament.
