New for 2016, there are $5 brackets and a Survivor-Mini-Eliminator option at the Bowlers Journal Championships.
Brackets are day-long. Bowlers on the three "fresh-oil" squads only will compete against bowlers from other fresh-oil squads, while bowlers from the two "burn" squads only will compete against other burn-squad bowlers. Bowlers can enter up to 10 per day, and payout will take place the following day at the BJ tournament desk. Winners will earn $25, and second place will pay $10.
The Survivor-Mini-Eliminator will be a yearlong product and include 16 bowlers, randomly assigned at the conclusion of the event in July. Game 1 scores will determine the eight bowlers who advance. After Game 2, four bowlers will remain. All four bowlers will cash, with the Game 3 score determining the finishing order. Bowlers can enter up to 10 for $10 each, with the payout being $60, $40, $25 and $20 for the four finalists, respectively.
