    • Bowlers will use their highest Green Country USBC composite average totaling all leagues within Green Country USBC’s association from:
      • All 2021-22 season leagues, provided it totals 21 or more games
      • If no 2021-22 composite average, a 21-game composite average as of January 1, 2023
      • If no January 1, 2023 average, a 21-game composite average as of March 1, 2023
    • USBC Rule 319A-2 (Ten Pin Rule): If the bowlers 21 game composite association average as of January 1, 2023 is ten (10) or more pins higher than their composite average for the 2020-21 bowling season, then the bowler must use the January 1, 2023 composite average.
    • Association members who have not reached 21 games by March 1, 2023, have paid their USBC national dues through Green Country USBC, and are not eligible to bowl in any other association’s tournament, will bowl scratch (220).
