This event bothers me a bit in that it is ripe for sandbagging.

I bowled in it and made it to the District finals and either people there had the luckiest string of their lives or they held their averages down in the early part of the year.

I person that I observed that had a listed average in the 140's consistently was in the pocket every frame - and it was her home lanes to boot, giving her an addtional advantage.

Great concept for a tourney, but a few bad apples can mess it up for everyone else.

Same with any tournament. I am so burnt out of tournaments due to the fact that in...every...single....one....there are those that come in 50, 70 100 pins below their ability and blow away the competition.

Most lately was a lady that bowled in the SP tournament, came in at like 60...yes double digits.....60 average and just ran over all the handicap brackets and such.

I'm so done with tournaments. Seems every one has a similar story.
