2016 – 2017 M.I.S.T. Bowler of the Year Standings

Our first tournament is now in the books, and it was another exciting start at Bayside Bowl in Portland, ME. We had (72) entries and crowned a new M.I.S.T. champion. Mike Cimba took the title as the top seed in the step ladder finals, defeating Brian Boghosian 216-187. It was a tough oil pattern, the 2013 PBA Wolf oil pattern, which was short (32ft.) and heavy. Not one single bowler averaged 200 on the day, that’s how tough it was. Thank you very much to Scott Moore and Moore’s Pro Shop for sponsoring our Bowler of the Year competition.

2016 – 2017 M.I.S.T. #1
Bayside Bowl, Portland, ME.
September 11, 2016

 

Hello bowlers and welcome back to another exciting season of the Maine Invitational Scratch Tournament (M.I.S.T.). Our first tournament of the season brought us to Bayside Bowl in Portland, ME. I would like to thank Charlie Mitchell and his entire staff for being such gracious hosts, always top notch service from every single person there. I would like to thank our returning sponsors: Brunswick Bowling, Moore’s Pro Shop, Bowl Pro Sales, Maine Clockworks, and Bowlingchat.net. I would also like to thank some new sponsors for this season: Twisted T’s and Tibo Art. Lastly, I would like to thank John Bercier for donating a very nice Brunswick polo that we were able to raffle off to one lucky bowler. We could not make this tournament great without the help of ALL of our sponsors, so bowlers please make sure you patronize these fantastic businesses whenever possible. If you want more information on any of our sponsors please contact me and I will make sure to get you the info you need. We had (72) entries this month, which filled the bowling center and there were no bowlers left on the waiting list, so everyone who wanted to bowl got a chance to compete. That meant we would take (18) qualifiers into the eliminator round, (9) from the first squad and (9) from the second squad. The oil pattern used was the 2013 PBA Wolf oil pattern.

Larry did a tremendous job to grind out a big 3rd place finish, battling back from a slow start early in the day. Great job by Larry, but it was an even better job done by Brian Boghosian. He simply dominated this tough oil pattern en route to an appearance in the championship game against top seed Mike Cimba. Mike excelled in the eliminator rounds, vaulting up from 10th to 7th in the first round, and 7th to 1st in the second round. Here is the result of the exciting championship match:

Congratulations to Mike Cimba for an impressive 216-187 victory over Brian Boghosian to take home his first ever M.I.S.T. title. Brian bowled exceptional all day, but it was Mike who was able to take home the hardware. Mike had a game plan and stuck to it, utilizing the extreme outside part of the lane, where few dared to venture, and he made shot after shot look easy. Well done by all of our step ladder finalists!

M.I.S.T. changes for the 2016-2017 season

September 9th, 2016 Comments off

M.I.S.T. changes for the 2016-2017 season:

 

There are (3) areas that I made changes to for the 2016 – 2017 M.I.S.T. season. There is a new format to qualifying for the Master of the Lanes, a new points structure, and a simplified way to break all ties that need breaking. Here are the three areas in that order:

 

  1. M.I.S.T. Master of the Lanes 2017 qualifying rules:

 

M.I.S.T. bowlers, as you know I am constantly looking to improve upon the process of how I run M.I.S.T. tournaments, and the Master of the Lanes is no exception. I have modified the format and how points are distributed to each spot so we can get more bowlers to each M.I.S.T. tournament and create an exciting atmosphere for getting into the Master of the Lanes tournament. Here are the (3) ways to now qualify for the Master of the Lanes:

 

  1. Finish in the top (10) in season ending Bowler of the Year points.
  2. Win at least (1) tournament AND compete in at least (4) events.
  3. Finish in the top (15) in season ending points AND bowl every points tournament.

 

I am hoping this gets more bowlers out there competing as there is now incentive for perfect attendance and consistently cashing, as well as someone who may have won yet can not make every tournament. As long as you bowl in at least (4) out of the (7) tournaments you have a shot at qualifying. As far as changing the points distribution, I felt that lowering the gap between 1-4 and the rest of the field will still give each champion a solid leg up on the competition, but will also keep more bowlers in play for the top 10 Bowler of the Year list. That change is covered in the following section.

 

  1. Bowler of the Year points system:

 

I also decided to give bowlers (10) points for each tournament, instead of (5) and also drop giving extra points for re-entries. If you want to re-enter to try and qualify you may do so, but you will not get any extra points for it. It will make it easier to track bowlers for perfect attendance too. Here is the modified Bowler of the Year points system:

 

Tournament entry for all non-cash qualifiers = 10 points, no extra points for re-entries.

 

Cash Qualifying Points:

 

1st place 250 10th place 105 19th place 60
2nd place 220 11th place 100 20th place 55
3rd place 200 12th place 95 21st  place 50
4th place 180 13th place 90 22nd place 45
5th place 150 14th place 85 23rd place 40
6th place 140 15th place 80 24th place 35
7th place 130 16th place 75 25th place 30
8th place 120 17th place 70 26th place 25
9th place 110 18th place 65 27th place 20

 

 

The bowler with the most total points at the completion of the 7 event tournament bowling season wins the M.I.S.T. Bowler of the Year title, and any their choice of bowling ball professionally drilled by Moore’s Pro Shop.  Also, the person who wins the Bowler of the Year title has until December 1st of the current calendar year to get in touch with Moore’s Pro Shop to finalize their ball of choice for winning the M.I.S.T. Bowler of the Year title.  If you have not claimed your prize by December 1st of the same calendar year, then you lose it, period, no exceptions.  This gives the bowler ample time to choose a bowling ball from Moore’s Pro Shop.

 

3.     Roll off format for ties requiring one (not for cashers not advancing):

 

This season, all ties that require a roll off will be done with a 9th and 10th frame roll off, no more single ball roll offs to determine the winner. If there is a tie after the first 9th and 10th frame roll off, we will continue with 9th and 10th frame roll offs until we have a winner. This includes ties in all step ladder final matches, ties for the last cashers spot, ties for a step ladder position after the eliminator rounds, and ties for the last bowler advancing in an eliminator round.

 

These are the changes made for the 2016 – 2017 M.I.S.T. season. All other rules and regulations can be found on the website, on our Facebook page, or with the tournament director at each tournament. Thank you.

2016- 2017 M.I.S.T. Rules & Information

September 9th, 2016 Comments off

MAINE INVITATIONAL SCRATCH TOURNAMENT RULES & INFORMATION 2016 – 2017

 

TOURNAMENT FORMAT:

 

The M.I.S.T. will bowl 4 games of qualifying across 8 lanes, moving one pair to the right after the completion of each game. There will be no more than (6) bowlers on each pair of lanes, barring unforeseen circumstances like lane breakdowns. One in every four bowlers (majority thereof) qualify for cash prizes, with the top four bowlers from the eliminator round(s) bowling head to head in a seeded step ladder match play format. Bowlers will receive (3) practice balls per lane at the start of the tournament, on the pair of lanes each bowler is assigned to begin. If there are more than 34 total entries (9 cash qualifiers), than an eliminator round will be held to help determine seeding for the stepladder finals. If there are (34) entries or less, the top (4) bowlers will advance to the step ladder finals, and the remaining spots will be paid out according to placement. Only the bowlers who qualify for cash prizes will participate in the eliminator round game(s). There are no guaranteed spots for the step ladder finals, every qualifier will compete in the elimination round(s). Bowlers will use their (4) game average (+) their score from the first elimination round to determine their “two game” total pin fall. That field is then cut in half (+ or – one spot), with the top half advancing to the next elimination round, or taking our top (4) for the step ladder finals, depending on tournament entries. The bowlers who get eliminated are paid out according to how they finished. For the second elimination round, bowlers will use their (2) game total (+) their score from this round to make a (3) game total pin fall. The top (4) bowlers advance to the step ladder finals in the order they finished, no other position rounds required. The top (4) will roll off, step ladder style, for the title. This format will combine using a bowlers (4) game average, creating a (2 or 3) game total in the elimination rounds to determine the top (4), and utilize our traditional step ladder finals for the final (4) bowlers to determine a champion each month. If there are big enough squads, we may do (3) elimination rounds, but it depends on tournament entries. Smaller events may only need (1) elimination round. Based on previous seasons totals, (2) rounds will cover most (if not all) tournaments. Bowlers will get (2) practice balls per lane before the start of each stepladder final match and the elimination round(s). If the bowler chooses to go first in the step ladder finals, he/she will start on the left lane, throwing (1) frame, with the next bowler following by starting their game on the right lane throwing (2) frames, or vice versa. Each bowler will throw (2) consecutive frames for the remainder of the match, alternating play so that the bowler who began the match, will also be the one finishing the match last. Bowlers are welcome to bowl practice games before the tournament, and during stepladder round(s) on lanes not assigned to the tournament, but the cost of the practice games will not be covered by the M.I.S.T. Each bowler must pay for his or her own practice games.

If there is a tie after qualifying and/or the eliminator round game for casher(s) spot(s) not advancing (not including the top 4 for the step ladder finals), the bowlers will split the prize money for the two spots, but, the Bowler of the Year points will be determined by the bowler who had the highest game during qualifying. If there is still a tie, then the next highest game will determine placement, and so on. If there is a tie between two bowlers for the final cashing position, then there will be a 9th and 10th frame roll off to determine the bowler who gets the spot. If there are more than two bowlers tied, there will be a 9th and 10th frame roll off, and if there is a further tie from that, the bowlers remaining will have another 9th and 10th frame roll off until a winner is determined. Starting lane and starting order will be determined by the tournament director. Bowlers not advancing will receive the standard (10) BOY points. If there is a tie for a top (4) match play position, then there will be a 9th and 10th frame roll off to determine position placement. If there is a tie at the end of any step ladder final game, then we will commence with a 9th and 10th frame roll off to determine the winner of the match. Choice of starting lane and starting order for the tiebreaker roll off is determined by the highest seeded bowler in the step ladder finals. A year long, accumulative point system is used to determine the Bowler of the Year. Cash prizes will be awarded at the completion of each tournament, there will be no money rolled over from tournament to tournament. All funds will be utilized at each tournament stop.
SQUAD TIME:

 

Sunday mornings, 9:00 AM for one squad tournaments. Check in is at 7:45 AM. In the event we have (2) squads, squad times will be 8:30 AM and 11:30 AM, with check in at 7:30 and 10:30, respectively. If you have reserved a spot ahead of time, your reservation is only good until (5) minutes before the squad begins. After that time, the spot will be given away to any bowlers on a waiting list at the tournament site. If time permits, the lanes will be re-oiled between squads. Lanes will only be re-oiled before the elimination round(s) or step ladder finals at the tournament directors discretion.

 

ENTRY FEE:

 

$60 entry fee, cash only. No credit cards or checks will be accepted. There is also an optional $5 raffle for a brand new Brunswick bowling ball offered to each competitor, but not required, at each M.I.S.T. event. Re-entries will be accepted if there is room, with the entry fee being $60. Bowlers may only cash (1) time per tournament, with their highest qualifying total being used for any cash awards.

 

TOURNAMENT ELIGIBILITY:

If you are not USBC certified, you must pay for certification prior to bowling at the cost of $21 (or current USBC dues for the season).

PBA members are allowed to bowl in the M.I.S.T., provided they have a valid USBC sanction. If you are under 18, you need to have a waiver signed by your legal guardian prior to bowling each and every tournament, there is no “carry over” for signed parental consent forms, bowlers must have one signed for every tournament entry, no exceptions. The M.I.S.T. is a participant in the USBC “S.M.A.R.T.” program, and any cash prizes that youth bowlers earn will be deposited in a S.M.A.R.T. account for their use at a later date. All rules governing the use and distribution of S.M.A.R.T. account funds is covered in the USBC manual under the S.M.A.R.T. section, and the M.I.S.T. abides by the rules and guidelines set forth in the USBC manual regarding the S.M.A.R.T. program; The M.I.S.T. is a cash prize only tournament, with the exception of S.M.A.R.T. funds. The M.I.S.T. also does not allow for a person to submit another bowlers name into brackets or side pot action, if a bowler wants to participate they need to put themselves in, period, no exceptions!

 

DRESS CODE:

A failure to do so will result in disqualification from any future tournament.

 

LANE COURTESY, BEHAVIOR & PRIZE MONEY:

 

We will be using a one lane courtesy rule for each tournament. If you wish to have more than a one lane courtesy, it is your choice, but not required by tournament rule. But, if you are slowing down tournament play by wanting more than one lane courtesy, you will receive one warning only by the tournament director before being asked to leave the tournament. We will not tolerate slow play, and if it becomes an issue, it will be dealt with swiftly by tournament management. Rude, obnoxious behavior will not be tolerated. Bowlers will receive one warning from the tournament director, after which time you will be asked to leave the tournament immediately. Any cash prizes over $600 a bowler has won in the last calendar year need to be reported to the tournament director prior to the start of bowling. All bowlers need to be USBC certified in good standing to bowl in the M.I.S.T. All other general tournament rules are covered in the tournament section of the USBC manual. All decisions by the tournament director are final; appeals must be submitted in writing by the end of the tournament.

 

TOURNAMENT MONEY BREAKDOWN (PER BOWLER):

 

Tournament Expenses: = $ 20 (Lineage, supplies, etc.)
Prize Fund: = $ 40 (Guaranteed per bowler)
Total = $ 60 (Entry fee per bowler for each M.I.S.T. event)
BOWLER OF THE YEAR POINT SYSTEM:

 

Tournament entry for all non-cash qualifiers = 10 points, there are no extra points given for re-entries.

Cash Qualifying Points:

 

1st place 250 10th place 105 19th place 60
2nd place 220 11th place 100 20th place 55
3rd place 200 12th place 95 21st  place 50
4th place 180 13th place 90 22nd place 45
5th place 150 14th place 85 23rd place 40
6th place 140 15th place 80 24th place 35
7th place 130 16th place 75 25th place 30
8th place 120 17th place 70 26th place 25
9th place 110 18th place 65 27th place 20

 

*The bowler with the most total points at the completion of the 7 event tournament bowling season wins the M.I.S.T. Bowler of the Year title, and any their choice of bowling ball professionally drilled by Moore’s Pro Shop. Also, the person who wins the Bowler of the Year title has until December 1st of the current calendar year to get in touch with Moore’s Pro Shop to finalize their ball of choice for winning the M.I.S.T. Bowler of the Year title. If you have not claimed your prize by December 1st of the same calendar year, then you lose it, period, no exceptions. This gives the bowler ample time to choose a bowling ball from Moore’s Pro Shop.
LANE CONDITIONS AND HONOR SCORES:

 

The M.I.S.T. is not a sport sanctioned event, so the use of sport certified lane conditions does not specifically apply, though it is not out of the realm of possibility that the M.I.S.T. could bowl on lane conditions similar to (or harder than) a sport condition. The lane condition will be determined by tournament management in advance of each tournament, and graphs will be available for all the bowlers to see on the M.I.S.T. website. Honor scores shot will be subject to any and all inspections required by the USBC.

 

BOWLING BALL SPEC’S AND SURFACE ADJUSTMENTS:

 

All bowling balls used for competition in the M.I.S.T. must be on the USBC acceptable equipment list. A bowler caught using a ball that is not USBC approved, will have that piece of equipment removed from play immediately if done so unknowingly. During competition, bowlers may apply bowling ball cleaners and polishes by hand in the bowling area only; they cannot be applied outside of the bowling area (i.e. in the pro shop, locker room or equipment paddock) or with the use of a ball spinner. Cleaners and polishes used during competition must contain no solids or abrasives and must found (and properly labeled) on the USBC list of acceptable Commercial Ball Cleaners/Polishes for use during competition. Abrasive pads, such as sandpaper, Abralon, Abranet, SIAAIR, Scotch Brite, etc., may only be used before competition, and any alterations made using these materials must be made to the entire surface of the bowling ball. Bowlers can adjust the surface of the ball up to, and including, the warm up period before the first ball is thrown in sanctioned play. Any attempt to use abrasive products during competition will be an automatic disqualification from the tournament. Bowlers can adjust surfaces between eliminator rounds and between step ladder final rounds up to and including the practice session. Any questions, please feel free to ask the tournament manager before using a product.

M.I.S.T. #1 2016-2016: 9/11/16, Bayside Bowl, Portland, ME.

August 16th, 2016 Comments off

I don’t have the fliers ready yet, but our first tournament of the 2016-2017 season is booked and ready to go. We will kick off the season on September 11, 2016 at Bayside Bowl in Portland, ME. We will have (2) squads, 8:30 AM and 11:30 AM, the same as last year. We are asking local bowlers to sign up for the 8:30 AM squad if possible. Cost will stay the same this year at $60, and we will of course have optional $5 brackets and $10 side pots. Space is extremely limited, so please keep that in mind when you reserve.
To reserve a spot, please send an email, with your name in the body of the email, to the following address: ajsoxpats2002@hotmail.com. Please put which squad time you are reserving for in your email too, thank you! You will receive a confirmation email back with your reservation # on it. If you don’t get a confirmation back from me then you DO NOT have a spot reserved. Please do not comment on this post that you are going to bowl, that is NOT a reservation. I will be adhering to the email system exclusively, especially in the centers with limited space, no exceptions. You can walk in the day of the tournament, but if we are filled up, we will first be going by the waiting list, then by walk ins to fill any empty spots. 
I would like to thank Charlie Mitchell for having us back to kick off another exciting MIST season at Bayside Bowl. See you on September 11 everyone!! #growbowling #goscratchorgohome

Here are the final standings for everyone who cashed in the tournament:

 

1st – Brandon Dubuc – $2,000

2nd – Valerie Calberry – $1,000

3rd – Mark Mantere – $500

4th – Justin Quinones – $500

5th – Eric Copping – $250

6th – Mike Macedo – $250

7th – Dylan Davis – $250

Thank you to Brunswick Bowling for sponsoring the event with a raffle ball, and that ball was won by T.J. York. Also, thank you to Nelson Moody and his entire staff at Yankee Lanes for being such gracious hosts. We are already looking forward to our next match play tournament. Lastly, thank you to all of our bowlers who came out and competed on a brutal Kegel Sphinx oil pattern. Your support keeps scratch bowling alive and well in the great state of Maine. Have a great day everyone, and we will post the info for our next tournament as soon as it is available!
