I've been reading the Rules Book and I cannot find the answer to a concern I have.
We're bowling a position round next week against a team that's been missing a bowler due to a shoulder injury for a couple of weeks. It's a bylaw of the league to not use any substitutes during position rounds. We heard last night that they were trying to replace the injured roster member with another bowler so they wouldn't lose playing strenght for that week. However, we know that the injured bowler intends to come back when he feels better and has not resigned from the league or given two weeks notice as stated by USBC Rules.
This team did the same thing in the second position round this year. They replaced another roster member on the same date of the position round.
I understand that a team has the right to reach player strength, but does that apply on a position round?
I'd appreciate any help on this. Thanks.
