This has strired up quite the hornets nest on the USBC website.
I don't know why, its only been like this for dozens of years. Its impossible to pay out at the site at that moment. There's just too many bowlers and too little space. Bowlers hanging over your shoulder demanding instant results.
What's the problem? You can't go a few blocks down the road to a different location to get your pay out? Heck most of the time there's a different location for senior vs regular brackets. If you get into both, you are really running around. I say, just be glad that you HAVE to run around, it means you bowled well.
As for the expense fee. NO ONE does brackets for free. NO ONE. Does anyone do anything for free anymore? NO didn't think so. Do you think that anyone is going to employ (yes employ) a dozen people, to check ids, pay out, keep track of winnings and pick ups, do the computer
imput and ultimately be responsible for thousands of dollars every shift for FREE?? You think these people are sitting there working all day, taking c rap from bowlers, as volunteers?
