Every team will be playing 6 matches on Saturdays during December, January, and ending in February. There is a Gold League that is pretty much composed of tournament bowlers and a Silver League for the rest (experienced or not). How the schedule was set up depended on who and how many teams signed up.
In a nutshell, each team must be composed of at least 4 people and must be from the same club.
It is highly recommended that each team be composed of 6 people, because if you lose any, you can't add any more at a later time.You'll have to supplement with your club pool players.
It doesn’t matter if the club is your primary or secondary (or tertiary, etc) club, you can play for that one and only one club. A person can't sub for multiple clubs. A person cannot be on two teams. Though there is no limit to the number of people who can be on a team, we would hope that if a team has 12 or so people willing to play that they would be broken up into 2 teams.
Each club should form pool of bowlers that can substitute for any club team should it be needed. These substitutes can’t play singles or skip. Subs for a club can substitute for both Silver and Gold League teams of that club. If you're on a Silver League team roster, you can substitute on a Gold League team (but not vice-versa). Bowlers who have finished in the top 3 in a SW points event in the last five years are not allowed to play in a Silver League game, with one exception: Novices are always eligible for Silver League play. The enclosed 2019 Winter League Rules go into more detail and have some other interesting rules that should make things run smoothly, so please read them.
