FOXFIRE PREBOWL & POSTBOWL RULES
effective December 14, 2014
Please understand that lanes are guaranteed at your regular league time. League games bowled outside of that time frame are an accommodation, and at the discretion of the house as not to interfere with other business. We will make every attempt to make lanes available when possible, although we cannot control distractions as with scheduled league bowling. The house also reserves the right to combine pre-bowlers on the same pair.
Bowlers should know that we cannot run the lane machine on lanes being utilized by a prebowl. With the addition of the Kegel Flex in the fall of 2014 we will be pushing lane maintenance closer to league times, and so must reserve the right to refuse to floor prebowls at times before lane service that could interfere with the running of lanes.
Expected schedule for lane maintenance: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 5pm, Tuesdays 8:30am. Friday’s time will depend on business, Saturday at 8:30am, Sunday 4:30pm during Fall Leagues, 6pm in Summer.
As has been the case in prior years: Prebowling is not allowed on Friday or Saturday nights after 6pm, or any time Saturdays from December 14th through March 31st. Prebowls on Sundays December 14th through March 31st will be limited, and prioritized behind open play.
It is up to the bowler to know, and adhere to the prebowling rules for their league.
All prebowls are full set. If bowler cannot continue due to injury or emergency they must notify the front desk of the reason. If the league officers accept the reason; scores will be accepted in accordance with USBC & league rules. Note: Whether scores are accepted or not; the bowler will not be allowed to complete the series once abandoned.
Substitutes are not allowed to prebowl any time for any reason.
Note: Prebowled scores are for a specific league session (scheduled week). Once bowled; they cannot be tossed out, or moved to another session for any reason.
POSTBOWL (make up):
Postbowl may only be done for two reasons: A team making up for a missed set on week one at the beginning of the season, or League officers determine that emergency or weather event prevented a team from bowling a scheduled match, and granting permission. Post-bowls done at the beginning of a season must be completed before the next league session.
All postbowls must be done in one session with either a full team or enough of the team to constitute a legal lineup.
When postbowling; bowlers must also adhere to the same rules and conditions as prebowls.
