Its been a couple of years since I've run this, but with the forum and wiki upgrade work now over, I can open this up for registration.
Please read all of the rules before signing up (See link below)
It is a 5 week competition among BowlingChat members that sign up.
We take the top 32 averages.
Registration is now open and will only be open until January 10th.
Scoring begins on January 17th.
If you are overseas, and not part of USBC and would like to participate, you can prove your average with online verification with me, and I will submit your entry manually, just PM me.

No matter your average, if you are interested in participating, please do sign up.
We have had a number of BIG upsets in the past, including a 32 beating a 1, so anything is possible.

Lets have a little March Madness in January and February!

Hi !

Im from Malaysia and i dont have any league. If there isnt a limit on entry, i would like to embarrass myself with my low score. Just want to take it as a side incentive to bowl better with every frame.

Is this a team event or can qw do this solo ?

In a week we've gotten 12 people to sign up.
We need more than that if this is going to run.
I wont run this unless we get at least 28.

Needs somewhat more promotion.

Maybe a notice on the main page.

I would change the post title to something like:

Sign up now for the online 2016 BowlingChat Matchplay Championship!!!

I almost didn't look at this thread, I didn't really know anything about the past ones. So I thought it was something I couldn't really participate in till I read it was just post your league scores.

I take your word for it. Maybe I just dismissed it after I read it and forgot about it .

Cant even fill a FREE tournament for fun.
Next time I will announce it before the holidays for more lead time.

why not just announce it still, take signups for like 45 or 60 days then have it?

I think you should try to fill it up and just do it when you have enough people.
