I have had 4 or five enter the rec.sport tournament. But now I see a
problem that I should have seen before I posted the rules. They are too
complex for a news grouip tournament.

The requirement to use the 15th ball to break subsequent rack to keep
run alive simply will not work with rotation. It is asking to much to
hope the lowest valued ball is clear after such a break.

So what is the opinion? I believe we should each just shoot one rack of
rotation, calling the pocket, and allowing combinations from the lowest
value ball. Still spot dropped balls after the break, with ball in hand
to sart run with full compliment of balls on the table following break.

We can still have a three game tournament.

Again, I lke rotation because it is not easy to run 15 balls in
sequence, but two misses should give everybody a good chance to run the
rack.

Sherm and Bob Jewet: I expect to see you in this thing, so please offer
your opinion. You too Nathan. Carl, you sawed off piece of pond scum.
Who cares?

Jim, are you going to make any allowances for differnet types of tables?
Bar boxes, 4 x 8 coin ops, or 4.5 x 9 footers. Smaller size may work to
make it easier to make the ball but harder to play position with the
balls confined to a smaller area.

I like the changes you outlined on your last post and you can also count
me IN.

You Could always have a "Ball in hand" after the 2nd break
By the way that Bowliards of whatever sounds fun and almost ideal for I-Net
play (Providing honesty)

I still don't know that I'll have that good of chance, but i'll play for
fun anyway.

Sound great.

As for the rules, either rotation, or equal offense would suit me.  I
haven't heard of a Sydney EO team yet, so would like to play
individually.

How 'bout we add a $500 entry fee?

...Now where's my monopoly set?
