You can do it for love or loot. Be sure to check out the supplemental competition rules
When playing "Clear the Deck" competition, your score is continuous until you have 3 opens. Regular league competition is usually 30-36 frames long. You may or may not have 3 opens during league. As soon as you have 3 opens your score is finalized. If you haven't opened 3 times by the end of league, carry your score over. Scoring is easy and actually more engaging when you do it my pen and paper. I chose 25 points per strike because 12 strikes in a row is still "300". Because you are in league competition, don't count fill balls that don't require you to pick up the spare. So if you have a spare in the 10th don't count the fill ball because you won't be trying to pick it up. The same thing goes if you double in the 10th, don't count the fill ball if you don't strike. You can track your "String" average and your high string score. By playing Clear the Deck you will notice your focus and attitude change while your bowling improves. We would love to hear your feedback. We have created a Facebook group to share Clear the Deck experiences.Just start it up as a supplemental competition using your regular league scores
We have plans to make this a sanctioned competition but let's just have fun with it for now.
