City Tournament Entry Form

Your 2015-16 COMPOSITE AVERAGE will be used as your entering average, entered and verified by the tournament director. Entering averages will appear on the tournament confirmation received by your team captain.

A composite average is the “average of your averages”. determined by dividing the total pinfall from all leagues by the total number of games you bowled. The average includes data from leagues with less than 21 games and data from leagues bowled in other associations.

You can find YOUR composite average on Bowl.com by using the “Find a Member” feature on their home page.

Note: For the purposes of this tournament, composite average is calculated using all house shot leagues. Averages earned in leagues on other conditions will be excluded from the composite calculation. The MBA will make the determination of what league averages will be considered. If you do not have a qualifying average, you will bowl scratch or be subject to an assigned average per USBC Rule 319b.

Motiv: Major Sponsor


The MBA welcomes Motiv as a returning Major Sponsor of the City Tournament.  Motiv will provide the bowling balls for the regular raffle, Captain’s Only raffle, and squad organizer bonus.  As always, winners will secure their new ball through Rob Bailey’s Pro Shop & Lanes.  This deal is expected to generate at least an additional $500.00 for our prize fund.
