Not too fond of the top ten all time posters picking. I'm one and never liked picking for teams.

This would be a perfect time to use a draft system. Once we know everyone that wants to be in it, we find out yearbook averages for everyone that does have one. Decide on number of bowlers on a team so we know the number of teams. The people with the highest X (based on number of teams) averages pick. To try to keep the teams a bit even. Break the averages down into tiers. The highest averages are top tier. They would then choose from the second tier, and the third tier and so on until everyone is picked. Maybe bowl for a so many weeks or months and then re-draft.

That's just a suggestion but I think it would work out pretty well. I'd like to see some real leagues around me give it a try.

For sign up, maybe a thread with just a one word or sentence response would work. Maybe someone could put together a website for the league.

cal, that's exactly what i had in mind for this, other than the 'extra' website. just didn't want to turn it into a 'job' for someone, unless someone is willing to spend the extra time to map it out proffessional like.....

Well the site would be only if someone wanted to do it. Other than that just use a thread.

Would a copy of score sheet, (Paper) suffice to join the league? Talked to our league secretary they dont even upload our games and averages until the end of the season to bowl.com Nothing is done on computer.

I would make a team an excellent 2nd or 3rd bowler with my handicap and ability to bowl over my head on occasion lol

Some tournaments will do this to verify if your average is well over year book average.

well, even to that extent, we could go thru the pages of the 09/10 season and tally up the scores vs weeks reported to come up with a 'site' average.

plus, i really don't think the folks here would lie about avg/games etc., it'd just be a fun thing.

Let's just compile a list of who wants to participate. Have each indicate a sanctioned average, or an average if they are not sanctioned. And, see how many we have. Cut off the applicants on a date or when we reach a predetermined number.

Then I agree with a draft method from the available list to maintain parity. If we use handicap, it should be based on the highest averaged bowler.

Next problem is how would we schedule who bowls whom? And, scores are to be entered by what day?

I'll be happy to setup and host a wordpress blog for the league (to post the score sheets, news, form to submit scores, etc). Once you decide who's going to run things shoot me a PM or try to catch me in the chat in the afternoon or evening.

I'd offer to do more but I sadly don't have any free time to do it right or even sloppily. wink

Mighty nice of you usr. If we could do this off of here so as not to muddy up the posts, but have a link from here would be nice.

Need help, PM me. Or just to discuss/recommend.
