Who is the best of the best this year?
Sunday, July 9, 2023
ENTRY FORM COMING SOON!
League Champions from 2022-23 Season are eligible to participate!
$120 Entry Fee/Team
Handicap: 90% of 220
Four-person teams bowling 3 games total
on the same pair of lanes.
Paying out two places (based on 12 teams entered)
SCNBA Membership waived for this event only.
Entry fees can be paid via check payable to: SCNBA or
Zelle payment to: [email protected].
The team champions will receive t-shirts.
14 possible teams are eligible. Championship teams from each of the SCNBA Nikkei leagues are eligible to participate in this end of season championship event — winner take all! It will be a four man event, so leagues that are trios or five member teams will have to adjust slightly, i.e., using members from their 2nd place teams. We hope to see all leagues participate as it will be a fun competition to see who is really the best of the best in the Nikkei World!
The Champion team will determine where the location will be for following year. The winning team receives a custom embroidered SCNBA shirt as well a bowling ball donated to raffle to their home league in the fall – a nice way for the entire league to benefit from their league champions!
ONLY A DRY TOWEL FOR CLEANING MAY BE USED DURING COMPETITION. ELIMINATION OF BALANCE HOLES: Bowlers may have up to five holes for gripping purposes and all must be used on every delivery. Any bowling ball that does not meet USBC specifications will subject the bowler to disqualification of all tournament scores. We reserve the option to do random spot checks and we may be reported to check equipment by another bowler. Visit BOWL.com to download the Non-conforming Bowling Ball List.
