The 8-Ball and 9-Ball teams with the most points earned in a session (excluding bonus points) out of all the divisions competing in that format in the entire League area will receive the BIG DAWG AWARD. In the event that two or more teams are tied for Big Dawg, both/all teams tied will receive the award. Each team earning the BIG DAWG AWARD will receive a plaque for each member on the team. In addition to the plaque, the team will gain a bid to the World Qualfier and will compete in the local Tri-Cup tournament for a chance at winning a Tri-Cup trophy, money and a chance at a possible bye in the World Qualifier in June.
