Our season ended and we had our mini banquet last night.  The last week of the season, they have the "great 8" tournament.  This involves the top 8 teams who have the most points won over the course of the season.  We bowl two 17 week halves, and this was week 35.  There's the first half champs, and the 2nd half champs.  The format is easy in the great 8.....1st vs. 8, 2 vs. 7, and so on.  Bowl one game to move on, you lose, your eliminated.  Each match is bowled on fresh oil...so you're moving pairs.  First place was $600 for the team, 2nd was $400.  Those who were eliminated in the first game got $100 each, and I think the 2nd round losers got $200 each.  We made it to the finals.  One of the guys on the other team had back problems, and the majority of the players on both sides decided not to bowl, and chop up the prize and get $500 each or $100 man.  Then we bowled pot games afterwards...something I havn't done in years.  It was fun, and after 3 games I broke about even, and called it a night.  It was a good, fast season.  I hope to practice over the summer, but I say that every year, and I never do.

I've attached my score recap and our final league sheet.

Wish I lived out that way. That's a solid league. Pretty even across the board.

Gary, the league has 4 teams coming in of all strong bowlers next year. It's very competitve.....you can't really count anyone out when it comes to jackpots.

Your league is growing.  My Monday league is growing by two teams next year; we could have added more but the house has no more lanes available.  All this in spite of the smoking ban that the proprietors say will put them out of business.  Interesting . . .

Smoking ban will help.  There are many people who won't bowl because of all the smoke.
