IMPORTANT – The rule has changed for calculating the State Tournament average! Starting with the 2016 State Tournament, bowlers will be able to use their composite average from the last 4 years of scores in the Michigan State Tournament, as long as they have bowled at least 18 games over the last 4 seasons. In addition, if the bowler has bowled 24 or more games in the last 4 State Tournaments, the top 3 games and the bottom 3 games will be dropped before calculating that composite average. These games do not have to come from the same 3 game series, they are the top 3 and bottom 3 games over the last four tournaments. Additionally, starting this year, the State Tournament average will now be published in PDF format, so you must have a PDF reader installed on your computer to view it. You can download this for offline use, or just open it from the website and use the search feature within your PDF viewer to look for your name or USBC number.
We have left everyone who has participated any time within the last 4 years on the average sheet so you can see exactly how many games you have bowled, but if you have less than 18 games, your average will be listed as N/A and it will show how many games you have. If you believe there are any discrepancies, please contact the Tournament Manager at (517)788-9135, or use our contact form to send your inquiry, and we will get back with you as soon as possible.
