To start each Team Quarterback will check in and draw a National Football League team name. There will be 18 NFL team names available. 9 from the National Football Conference (NFC) and 9 teams from the American Football Conference (AFC). All team name are luck of the draw. Team name determines your starting lane. All teams will then be given 10 minutes of practice time.
Following Practice, all team Quarterbacks (Captains) will select one person on their team, to be the Kicker. (Kicker cannot be the team Quarterback). The Kicker will start out on the approach for a 1 ball Opening Kickoff! Those Kickers that throw a Strike will win a $10 bar credit for their team to be used the night of the tournament. Teams will then start their regular season out. A total of 12 "baker" games will be bowled during qualifying. Teams will move to a new Stadium (lane) after each game. Teams that start out on an odd lane will move right all night, and the teams starting on the even lanes will be moving left all night. Once teams get to lane 18 they will move to lane 1. Teams getting to lane 1 will move to 18. A total of 12 qualifying games will be bowled. After 6 games, we will stop momentarily for half time. All Quarterbacks (Captains) will pick a Running Back to step up for a Touchdown (strike) attempt. (The running back has to be someone other than the QB or K). All at once all running backs will attempt to score a touchdown in the red zone. (Throw a strike!) Those that are successful will receive a 12" one topping pizza for their teams. Pizza is valid the night of the tournament only. A winning 50 / 50 raffle ticket will also be drawn during half time. Half of the money is awarded to this winner and the other half goes into prize money noted below in the prize money payout. The 50/50 raffle will work as follows. It's 3rd and Goal. The winning ticket holder needs to throw for a touchdown. (Throw a strike) Should they throw the strike for the first down, the money is theirs! Should they leave pins standing, they still have a chance to win the cash but only half! It's now 4th and Goal! Another ticket will be drawn. This new ticket holder needs to convert the spare (Score the Touchdown). If the spare is made, the cash will be split between the two ticket holders. If the spare is missed another ticket will be drawn and the process will repeat itself until there is a winner.
Teams will then bowl their remaining 6 games.
