    Default Tournament Payout

    Just bowled a funtime senior 9pin no-tap tournament (not USBC certified).

    The entry form states a payout of 1 to 5. Actual wording is:
    Prize fund dispersed in 1 to 5 ratio
     Winners will be posted on our website approximately 2 weeks after tournament completion. Payout checks will be mailed out within 30 days of completion of tournament.

    It is a 3 day event, with each day treated as a separate tournament and is by division. On Monday, there were 75 doubles entered in Div 1, yet payouts were only for 13 spots, as you can see below. Isn't this incorrect? If so, what, if any recourse is there? And since it only paid out $11 for 13th, not sure it's worth any time spent - other than me knowing if it's right or incorrect.

    1:5 for 75 would mean 15 payouts, not 13. 13 would be for 65 bowlers.

    A 1 to 5 payout ratio does mean there should have been 15 payouts, not 13. Had this been a USBC sanctioned event you could complain to USBC and possibly get the tournament organizers to cough up some more money. Given that 13th paid only $11 it seems like it would not be worth the effort. I suppose they could be taken to small claims court but that would be mainly to punish the organizers by making them spend time in court and of course it also makes you waste all that time.

    Thanks guys....here's the TDs explanation. Better than nothing.

    Tournament program is set for 1 out 5.. I am verifying all manually and where it shorts a position, that position will get last place
    $10 each. Too late to go through and recalculate so I'm just adding.
