For me right now, I'm frustrated with league play and pots. With are league having an 80% handicap, I'm just throwing money away to the top teams. I just started bowling for fun, but this sport seems too cutthorat and the way the league is run to bilk the high handicap players to fund for thier huge $2000 and $3000 awards really sucks.

I know exactly how you feel. My Friday night league also has an 80% handicap rule but based on the difference between average and 230! There were actually 2 guys averaging 229 for the entire season. I actually ended up around 205 and that was 42nd place.

My team had two guys averaging in the high 170's and we were not competitive at all. It sucks to be in the lower quarter percentile of 18 teams! The bonus money was handed to the top 4 teams - each third winner and the wild card winning most points entire season without the win.

Next year I got a place on a better team with some friends so I may just enjoy the league a bit better. But it certainly doesn't cater to the lower averages.
