This season, the GISBT has expanded our rule in 2021-2022 to guarantee a certain number of bowlers who are under age 18 will place in the money. If there are at least 5 entries in the boys or girls division who are aged 18 or under, we will guarantee 1 will cash. If between 6 and 10 entries, 2 will cash, and at least 15 or more entries, 3 will cash.
