The Dude Hates Cancer Bowling Tournament
Each campaign of The Dude Hates Cancer culminates in a laid back, Dude-like bowling tournament where teams “compete” against each other for top honors on the lanes. Three hours of bowling is the reward for a job well done on the fundraising trail and a fitting wrap-up to this “Big Lebowski”-themed event.
This is bowling, there are rules
There are a few rules for this event. Here they are:
- Teams of 6 to 10 bowlers (we encourage gender parity among dudes, special lady friends, and strangers).
- Each team has just over an hour to bowl at least one game. The top 6 scorers from the game are counted towards the tournament; if the team has time to bowl more than one game, the best six scores from the best game will be counted, but only one game will be considered as the official entry.
- For a game to count, it must be completed within the session. Teams will not be allowed to finish an active game once time is up, no matter how close to finishing they may be.
- Whichever team has the highest combined score for six members in a single game wins the tournament.
- If still a tie, the winner will be the team with the highest individual game score
- If still a tie, the winner will be the team with the second-highest individual game score (if still a tie after this point, then a coin flip will determine the winner).
- All standard bowling rules apply (i.e. toes must stay behind the line, no steroid use, etc.).
- Barring a machine malfunction of some sort, the computerized lane scoring will stand as the official score. Please ask a tournament official to verify your score after each round.
- In the event of an injury, substitution will be allowed (provided the sub isn’t a member of the PBA).
- No members of the PBA are allowed to participate.
