I hear ya. But in comparison to the US Open Golf tournament, it's a joke as far as that goes. But those in charge are Picnic and tailgater types. Perhaps they could just call it the USBC Open, and leave it at that. But either way, the pattern no

Aside from Jeff Richgels I may have been the most vocal opponent of hiding the pattern. I've done my best to be a thorn in their side, annoying them at whatever chance I could get. Its a stupid rule, does nothing to benefit the tournament, and does i

When success of a tournament is based on the number of entries, one has to wonder about A Future For The Sport. My own opinion is that the USBC has decided to take advantage of the overall climate of the nationals and turned it into a handicap tourn

Yeah, champ, in years past, I've started the nationals thread w/ the oil pattern(s) for the tournament, but, with the USBC not publishing them until after the tournament, I've had no reason to start the thread. I suspect some of the teams that have U

Embarrassed. 156 - 168 - 147. Had a great look in practice, started to use the Ride, then the Hy Road Pearl early on. I should have switched to a lane ball. The lanes were burnt, but I hit the pocket fairly solid, adjusted some to eliminate the 1
