Questionable errors shall be declared/decided by the Tournament Committee. Any player who deliberately tampers his/her score sheet shall be disqualified immediately from further participation in the tournament.

All bowlers are entrusted to monitor and abide by this rule. Bowlers are not allowed to reset the pins – only lane men, tournament officials and official scorers are allowed.

 

LANE BREAKDOWN

In case of machine breakdown during the masters final, vacant lanes shall be assigned to affected finalists. Any interrupted game or series must resume from the point (frame) of interruption.

FOUL LINES

 

                Bowlers must at all times observe foul lines. If the automatic foul device becomes temporary inoperative, the Tournament Committee shall assign marshal(s) to act as foul judge(s). Official scorers are also designated to monitor fouls committed by bowlers. Spectators shall not be permitted to interfere with the calls of the duly designated foul judge.

 

SLOW BOWLING

 

            Players shall be ready to bowl when it is their turn and shall not delay the start of their approach or delivery when the pairs immediately adjacent to them on both right and left are clear.

 

            Bowlers must observe one (1) pair lane courtesy at all times. They may claim right of way only over a player moving to the approach or preparing to bowl on the lane immediately to their left.

 

            They shall yield to a player moving to the approach or preparing to bowl on the lane immediately to their right.

 

            Players shall be ready to bowl when it is their turn and shall not delay the start of their approach or delivery if the lanes immediately adjacent to them on the right or left are clear.

 

            If a player does not observe the procedures outlined above, it may be construed as slow bowling. Such player shall be warned by an authorized tournament official with a white card for the first offence (no penalty) and a yellow card for the second offence (no penalty). For third and subsequent offenses in any masters finals, the bowler shall be shown a red card and given a zero (0) pinfall for the frame.

 

PROTEST

            Any protest must be done in writing and addressed to the Tournament Committee not later than 24 hours after the game in which that infraction was committed on or prior to the awarding of prizes, whichever comes first.
