Subject: Ques. A time limit for Postponement bowling?
Last season our league had a small problem with postponement bowling. A
couple of teams that were granted postponements were dragging thier
feet and taking several weeks to get around to making up the games. so
of course this would mess up the standings.
The league rules just followed the ABC rules for postponements (Rules
110a-g) and that basically says you got till the end of the season to
make up the games.
So we want to add a time limit for this .( which it says you can do in
the rules book) I'd like to know what some other leagues rules do or
what would be a good time limit to put on it.

Several of the leagues that I bowl in require that the postponed games
be made up before the next position night.

Our time limit says it has to be made up by the next week, or the games are
forfeit.

Thanks for the info everybody. I think we will work in the two week
time limit with all make up games to be done prior to the
next position round. Games not made up will be a forfiet.

If the league rules do not have a time limit set then I assume, from my
own leagues, that you have till the Official time limits to complete
the postponed games.

We are now introducing the 2 week rule unless certain circumstances are
duely acknowledged by the League Body.

Most leagues I bowl in allow for two weeks. Must be made up prior to final
position round. League secretary sets the date that is agreed to by both
teams and both teams bowl on that day. This eliminates the BS that some
teams try to use to unnecessarily delay the league. Some teams try to set
it to bowl alone, but I as the opposing team captain do not allow that
because I feel that both teams should bowl on the same lane conditions.

Leagues can not just deny a postponement, but it can limit how long it takes
to make up for the postponement. I do not think it is allowed, but I think
that a league should be allowed to limit a postponement and that they should
be allowed to require notice except in cases of emergency. The league
governing body should decide on cases of emergency.

All make ups have to be done prior to the
next position round. That's the way our
rules read. If the postponements are not,
forfeit. Just one option.

Enjoy! Friendship is the best part of bowling.

the leagues I have bowled on don't have a "postponement" they have the
option to pre-bowl only and for that you have to have a vote of the League
officers (always approved) and you must bowl before the actual night of
bowling is to take place. If you don't get your games in then you lose all
points th night you're suppose to bowl. that would put a stop to the waiting
till the end of the season to bowl.
