Before I note how I did, it should be said that the People's Tournament eliminated the average cap (which was 225) starting with this tournament, and it brought the sharks into the water. The top 5 in the Saturday squad (all of which were guaranteed spots in the roll-offs) were all bowlers who bowl in NEBA tournaments on a regular basis. With the high number of entries, I was expecting the cut score to be high, so I needed to be my best.

My qualification attempt, frame-by-frame (Link to BowlSK)

I never really got it going until near the end, so I could only manage a 591 score with my handicap. However, as I said in my comment, I'll take the three strikes in a row near the end as being as much of an accomplishment as I've had in these without cashing. I also had the best seat in the house for a 288 in the last game: the bowler following me had the first 10, but left it light on the 11th shot. For the record, the cut to the roll-offs was a 703, so I missed it by 112 pins.
