Going through a bit of a slump. I feel like I'm bowling well, just not carrying well or getting the breaks. Last week shot 611 on Friday and 596 on Sunday. Made it a point to practice this week and worked on a few things and was hoping to turn it aro

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame I almost recovered from my second game to save average, but I came up a couple of pins short. I'll use the rest of the space here to explain my usual problem with the 10 pin, as I missed a few more of them tonight:

Our odd weather in the northeast made Friday night interesting. Low 60's, rain, humidity, and a completely packed 32 lane center with two leagues and a large group event were a bad combination. I can understand that they didn't want to turn on the

Bowled Monday night. First two games were pretty good and we won (even though we handed the other team 237 pins handicap. . . ) but the third game I felt my energy level drop through the floor. When I got home I felt like my lungs were filling up an

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame Tonight was my comeuppance, as I was largely a victim of bad pin carry, and compounded it by missing more single-pin spares than I made. The 166 first game had my only double of the night. Result: 166-139-140=445 A

Another very rough night of bowling for me last night. I thought it was going to be a pretty good night starting off. I threw a beautiful strike to open things up. Proceeded to push one through the nose on my second frame and left the greek church

I would be extremely annoyed if it was my first one and I waited that long, asked for assistance, and didn't receive any. I'm likely going to e-mail my association manager later today and see if they can provide any updates (or tell me if they recei

My best bowling buddy shot his first 300 in February of 2016. Months went by and it was never posted. He asked everyone he could think of for help, but never got anywhere. He shot a second 300 ten months later, in December 2016, and BOTH 300s were

Dennis, that's exactly the type of situation that concerns me. When I look up my member history on Bowl.com, it says that the application and money for my membership card was submitted to the USBC on December 1st of 2017. I just got my permanent ca

If the core is symmetric, the MB is supposed to be 6-3/4 inches beyond the CG in a straight line from the pin. The only accurate way to know for sure is to put the ball on a 'determinator' before you drill any holes. Mark that spot. Allegedly, i

Was always under the assumption that once the thumb was drilled, the PSA was in the thumb hole.

It happened to me about 5-6 years ago. Turned out, the league secretary didn't mail any achievements in to the association. Course, he blamed the house. Said he gave the forms to them. And they lost them. Well, he didn't. Finally, after other p

Technically speaking, if you draw a line from the pin to the CG on a symmetrical core ball and continue that line for 6-3/4 more inches, that's the MB. Since the MB is always in the same location for all symmetrical core balls, it doesn't need to be

Question: Does a Dual Angle Drill work on a Symmetrical Core ball where the PSA is not marked?
