Maximum 25 players - Minimum 15 players | Six standard regulation bowling pins | Standard regulation bowling ball or balls
To establish order / “Line up” in which we play the game. Each player will pick a ping pong ball that are numbered 1 – 100, from a bag, this is called the “Pill Draw. The lowest numbers picked “lowest pill draw”, up to 25 individuals will qualify for playing in the game.
Officials will announce prior to the event the pill draw open and close time. Everyone must be present to participate in the pill draw. One pill draw per person no exceptions allowed. Officials will start the game at their discretion no sooner that 15 minutes after pill draw closes to allow people to practice. We can add players to the game if there is space available, and participants can join the game up until the first bowler of the Line Up, rolls the second round.
The playing field is a site specific and must contain a minimum of two and a maximum of five marked throwing locations. Marked as Alpha, Beta, X marks the spot and Infinity. The lowest pill draw / “The Picker”, picks the first bowling location, and throws the first ball starting the game! Round two thru five, “The Picker” is chosen by the director of competition.
The throwing location is marked with two safety cones, bowlers are to throw from behind the two cones at designated “picked” throwing location. Director of competition has the discretion to disqualify any throw where they deem, “substantially thrown past the cone line”.
THE GAME IS WON BY: Five single throws per player and the highest number of pins dropped total wins. Tied wins will go to sudden death round the lowest “Pill Draw” picks throwing location and start’s sudden death match until we have a winner!
"John Tony – John Tony” Pee Pee CLAUSE": If a player does not come to line when called by officials to bowl, that player will have a three-bowler grace period. When the 4th player rolls, the Pee Pee player will lose their roll in that round. The player is still in the game although that round will not be scored.
The Season Championship night maximum number of players will be extended to 35. The World Closed Gate Bowling League is an underachiever event and if a player wants to let someone else bowl in their place this is allowed. That bowler will forfeit their opportunity to win a round or a trophy.
