Subject: Men's League Ideas...
I know with all the experience that read this NG, somebody has to
have some good ideas.
Basic delima: League is on a military installation, but in a large
military populated area. Well grounded league but lost a lot of
participation when we went scratch about 4 years ago.
League Make up: Last three years has been a trio with only 8 teams (6
the first year). Three games scratch modified. Scratch head-to-head
individual but team games are handicapped 80% of the difference in
average. You didn't have to set your line-up by average, just that the
left lane always did line-up first. We have an advantage of only paying
$1.75 a line for fees and can put everything else into the prize
fund/sec/tres fee. Currently pay $12 a week for 30 weeks. Split season
with wins/losses starting over after the first half.
Idea: I'd like to find a way to make it more competetive for even the
160-180 average bowlers that have joined, without scaring away the 200+
averages that we have. 24 bowlers and we had a league average of about
185 with 8 200+.
ME?: I'm the Secratary/Treasurer and best friends with the President.
We believe in this league as a competitive AND fun league.
Any ideas you could give would be greatly appreciated.
