I'd agree that is one of the issues in the league. We've only ever used some percentage of the team difference for handicap, currently it is at 90% and it used to be 85%. Handicap is also a hot issue before the start of every season, but no one has ever suggested individual. I think once it was brought up to make it 100% of the difference, but it didn't get support and no vote was taken.

We're only the first 9 games before we reset, then updates based on total pins every week after that. We used to just reset bowlers with established averages after week 1. I agree, it can lead to problems even if maybe not intentional. Some of the better bowlers in the league don't touch their stuff over the summer, so they're a little rusty (supposedly). I like the 21 game idea better, it would have helped me and thus our team. I'm at 238 after the first 3 weeks, and that is most likely not sustainable for me.

Current Average - 225
