1. IN-LEAGUE QUALIFYING:

Bowlers qualify by bowling as they would any normal day, but if everyone on any 3, 4, or 5 person team strikes together during any given frame, they achieve a Miller Lite Beer Frame. (Note: all bowlers must be 21 years of age or older). Achieving the Miller Lite Beer Frame gives bowlers the opportunity to participate in the Miller Lite Beer Frame Baker Blast Tournament.

Upon achieving the Miller Lite Beer Frame, the team of bowlers can complete an entry form and remit $20 per team. Upon entering, the team will attempt to hit their target score (team average) exactly on the number, with 3 game attempts per entry. Re-entries are allowed.

Once a team reaches its team target score, it automatically qualifies for the In-Center Roll-off. If only one team reaches its team target score, that team automatically advances to the State Final.

2. IN-CENTER ROLLOFF:

Centers have two options in choosing dates and times when teams can compete in an In-Center- Roll-off:

- Each participating center can set one specific date and time for teams to compete in the Roll-off. If this option is chosen, centers must make teams aware of the Roll-off date prior to their entering the tournament.

- Allow teams to bowl at any time open play is available between December 4 - 10, 2022.
**Note: All Roll-offs MUST BE COMPLETED by the December 10th Deadline.**

Teams bowl three Baker games and take the cumulative-difference score to decide the Center Champion. There are no negatives; no games or penalties cancel another out. The object is to come as close as possible to zero as a cumulative difference. (e.g., Target score is 175, Gm1=178, Gm2=200, Gm3=170. Take each game and determine the difference to the target score: Gm1 was 3 pins away, Gm2 was 25 pins away, Gm3 was 5 pins away. Total the “pins away” difference for all three games: 3+25+5=33. 33 is the total cumulative difference.)

3. STATE FINALS:

The State Finals will be being held Sunday January 29, 2023 at Illinois Valley Super Bowl in Peru, IL.

All teams that participate at the State Final will receive a cash prize, with the Grand Prize of $3,000 being awarded to the Illinois State BPA Champion Team, 2nd place $1,000 & 3rd place $500. The only travel required by bowlers is to the State Final. The top team will be crowned the Illinois State BPA Champion at the State Finals.
