Centereach, NY: The LIUSBC is pleased to announce it will be running a limited adult tournament schedule this spring. With New York State guidelines limiting format types and squads, the LIUSBC chose three tournament formats that would best run under the current restrictions. Flyers for each of these events are now posted on our official website; LIUSBC.com.
LIUSBC’s first event will be the popular 700 Club tournament hosted by AMF E. Meadow on Sunday, March 14th (2 squads: 1pm & 3pm.) This singles tournament is a 3-game scratch event featuring a 1 in 5 cashing ratio with the top 2 bowlers from each squad advancing to a 1 game shootout to determine the top 4 prize winners. Top prizes are guaranteed to pay $1,000 & $500 with 60 entries. Entry fee is only $60 per squad and multiple cashing and re-entries are welcomed. There will also be a separate optional senior and women’s prize list.
The second LIUSBC event on the schedule is a “Drop Your Low Game Tournament.” This unique format will be hosted at East Islip Lanes on Sunday, April 25th (2 squads: 12:30pm & 3pm.) This is a 4-game handicap (90% of 230) tournament which only counts each entrant’s highest 3 games! In other words, YOU DROP YOUR LOW GAME! The cashing ratio is 1 in 5 per squad and the top 2 bowlers from both squads will compete in a 1 game shootout to determine the top 4 prize winners. Top prizes are guaranteed to pay $1,000 & $500 with 60 entries. Entry fee is only $65 per squad and multiple cashing and re-entries are welcomed.
The third LIUSBC tournament is a handicap doubles tournament hosted at AMF Wantagh on Sunday, May 23rd (2 squads: 1pm & 3:30pm.) This event is actually 2 separate doubles tournaments: A Mixed Doubles and an Over/Under Doubles with a 450 Team Max. Both competitions will feature an optional scratch prize list. The format for both tournaments is 3-games handicap (90% of 450) with 1 in 5 doubles teams cashing. Scores from both squads will be combined to determine the final prize lists. There will be no finals. Entry fees are only $80 per team ($40 per bowler) and multiple partners are allowed if bowled in the same squad for $60 per additional team ($30 per bowler).
Bowlers are requested to prepay their entries on-line at www.liusbc.com. There is no additional fee to prepay by credit card. Space will be limited for each tournament as a maximum of 6 bowlers per pair will be enforced to encourage social distancing. Walk-in entries will be permitted if space is available. We look forward to seeing you at an LIUSBC tournament.
