No offense, but how stupidly easy is your house shot? I bowl with some of the best bowlers in New England on a regular basis and can still only name a handful of guys with a single 850 to their name. You make it seem like it's a foregone conclusion that someone will win this bonus.

And how do you plan to recruit 20 teams of guys into a league with a minimal prize fund that is top-loaded by the 850 bonus? There is no chance that you'll get a league full of players capable of going 850, so how can you sway people to join a league they're guaranteed to lose money in even by finishing near the top?

Uncle Crusty,

First off I dont think anyone has ever shot 850 at this location.Im sure if this kind of league was near you you and your high roller buds would think its so easy to do any bowl in it.odds are there is probably 1% chance or less that someone hits it But thats part of the fun.Great bowlers will think its easy enough to do or will think they will be the only one to hit it and other avg bowlers will bowl trying to reach for the stars and do something they never thought possible.Some people might like the fact there is a league with a big easy to reach carrot instead of bowling in the run of the mill mens leagues where they win the league make $300.00 each.At least in this league they could still have some money to win each and ONE GREAT NIGHT pays off there car or pay for a family getaway.

If bowlers wanted it to be a big prizeFund they would be welcome to pay more everyweek to make that happen.The fact is no matter how high your average you know you could do this.If your scared to try its cool I understand you Like I could change to the league to "I bet you cant Shoot 200" so you can win a share of my money.

838 is a ton as well.I like 850 as a nice big round Number.I also Like it incase no one hits it to roll over and be 10,000 The following Season.
The current feed back here is people want the 20.00 a week option to create a 35,000 Prize Fund.I hope this league floors I think it will be really fun and competitive juices will be rolling every night trying to get the money.
