Format: Saturday, September 17. All teams will bowl (2) 5 game blocks, total team score. One block will be on a short challenge pattern and one block on a long challenge pattern. The first block starts at 9 AM. There will be approximately a 90-minute break between blocks to reoil.

Qualifying teams return and bowl each other once in round-robin match play with each match consisting of two baker games, total score, followed by a position round. For each finals pair, one lane will have the short pattern and the other will have the long pattern. For each match, in game one each team member will bowl on a different lane on the pair, and for game two the team members switch lanes and order. **Example: Team A makes the finals, consisting of Bowler A and Bowler B. They are on lanes 5-6. For game one, Bowler A leads off and bowls frames 1,3,5,7, and 9, on lane 5, and Bowler B bowls frames 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 on lane 6. For game 2, Bowler B bowls frames 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 on lane 6, and Bowler A bowls frames 2,4, 6, 8, and 10 on lane 5. After 11 baker matches (or however many teams make the finals per above) plus a position round, cut to the top 3 teams for a step ladder consisting of 2 game baker matches per the above format.
