BowlingCommunity Mixed Virtual League Rulebook

by on Dec.23, 2009, under League News

The BowlingCommunity mixed virtual league is intended to be, first and foremost, a fun affair. There is no prize fund, no minimum average, and no pressure. If that sounds like your cup of tea, read on.

League Summary

The league will be open to any member of the BowlingCommunity forums. It will be an unsanctioned handicapped league, and will run for approximately 12-16 weeks. The schedule will be set once signups have completed. Teams will consist of somewhere between 3 and 5 bowlers, again depending on the number of bowlers that sign up. Teams will be assigned based on entering average, to keep the field as level as possible. Scores will be submitted by each bowler threweekly.

Teams

Teams will consist of 3 to 5 bowlers, based on the number of bowlers that sign up (we will attempt to have no vacancies). Teams will also get a private thread in the BowlingCommunity forums that only they can see/post in.

Virtual Bowling

Bowlers have 2 options for tracking their scores. The first is to use the scores from a league. If a bowler is in multiple leagues, a single league should be chosen for consistency’s sake. The second option would be to use open bowling scores. If this option is chosen, the bowler should make an effort to bowl in the same center, on the same day, for their score submissions.

If a bowler cannot bowl at their usual time (either they miss league, or can’t make their regular center on their regular day), the bowler may roll-off at another time that week, and submit that score. The bowler should still try to bowl at their regular center, under similar conditions. For instance, if a bowler is submitting scores from a sport league, they should not roll off on a house pattern. If the bowler can’t rolloff, a vacant score will be taken (TBD, bowler average – 10?)

For the purposes of score submission, weeks will run from Monday through Sunday. The submission deadline will be the following Monday at noon, PST. So, for the league week that runs January 4th through the 10th, scores would be due on January 11th, at noon. The 3 games should be entered and submitted using the score submission form here.

Scoring

Handicap will be calculated as 90% of the difference between the averages of the 2 teams bowling. We will use a 7 point system – 2 points per game, and 1 point for series.

Schedule

The first week of bowling will be January 4th through the 10th, with scores being due on the 11th. Schedule length will be determined by the number of teams, which will be dependent on number of entries. The schedule will likely be somewhere between 12-16 weeks long. It will consist of each team bowling every other team the same number of times (once or twice), followed by a position round. Since one bowler’s scores may be posted publicly before an opponent bowls, matchups will not be made public at the start of the season. Instead, after all scores have been collected for the week, a recap will be posted to this site and to the BowlingCommunity forums, including the team matchups for the previous week.
