Thanks so far to everyone who has responded so eloquently to my questions. I appreciate the really useful knowledge that is being shared.

I have another question about leagues that use the Individual Match Point system in conjunction with the Team Match Points. If a league has an odd number of teams, obviously one team will bowl the Dummy/Blind Team each night. How do the majority of the leagues handle bowling against a Dummy? Do you have to beat your current/true average, or do you use your entrance average, minus a certain amount of pins, or is the Dummy Team filled with VACANT scores? And in the individual match point competition, does the one team have to beat the individual VACANT scores with the associated handicaps? And are there different VACANT scores for Females and Males in Mixed Leagues of this type?

I realize that I'm asking a lot of questions, but if I understand VACANT scores as opposed to ABSENTEE scores, it could be a little tougher bowling a match against a Dummy Team with Vacancies, than it would be playing against a scheduled team with a couple of absent bowlers?

Thanks in advance.
