The S.S.F.L. shuffle system uses several methods of shuffling bowlers to provide optimum competition. The shuffle screen reports the following:

 ·Stop - Stops the shuffle at that point to lock in the competition at that point. By stopping and restarting the shuffle, the shuffle system will use additional methods of shuffling. While this adds further collision reductions, more processing time may be needed.

·Number of Bowler Conflicts - A meter will display the potential conflicts in the first game and the potential conflicts in the second game beneath. While it is nearly impossible to prevent collisions beyond the first game, by letting the S.S.F.L. system continue to sort, the conflicts will potentially reduced.

·Estimated Time Remaining - Indicates the rough time to explore the maximum number of combinations. If the time displayed seems excessive, remember that this is based on the computer processor speed and the number of brackets being shuffled. It is okay to click Stop at any time to lock in the shuffle at that point.

·Number of tries remaining - Shows the number of potential combinations to explore and shuffle. Again, remember that it is okay to click Stop at any time to lock in the shuffle at that point.

When complete, click Re-do Bracket Assignments to continue to randomize the names until you are satisfied with the matchups. Click Return to Brackets Screen to lock in the matches and display the bracket results. Repeat for each bracket set.
