Some leagues make you take off 10 pins if your regular
misses but no penalty for a vacancy. How fair is that

The vacancy score should be about the average of the bottom third or bottom quarter of the league -- enough to give teams a fair chance to win some games, but not so high as to give a shorthanded team a definite advantage on those nights with tougher scoring conditions.


I agree wholeheartedly. Unfortunately, since I don't drive much at night now, the only daytime leagues are Senior leagues with similar rules.  I just bowl to satisfy myself and accept that the other teams have an unfair advantage.

Old bowlers never die, they just fade away.
