What happens during the two-day event?
Day 1: Eight round-robin Baker match games. All teams will return on Day 2 and will be seeded into tiered brackets based on match-play record.
Day 2: Double-elimination match-play brackets. Each match will be decided by best two-out-of-three games Baker format. Teams will continue bowling until they have lost two matches, thus being eliminated from the tournament. Each bracket will have a winning team. The team that wins the Tier 1 bracket in each division will be crowned tournament champion.
For one day events we combine the round-robin Baker match games and double elimination match-play all in one day.
