Just finished up my Team event. Wasn't pretty. But at least I can say I shot 500. Heard from a pro u need to burn a line around the ten board or else you wont have any shot at all. Even if the 1st game is bad, this is the strategy I was told to u

I use 10 from the middle to my shoulder, from experience it seems to be what is right for me. Since I've finally worked out my timing and increased my ball speed, I can stand at 16 targeting at 6 with my Critical Mass. I'm having fun playing that l

Actually, I use 11 boards from the middle of my stance to my right shoulder. If he was standing 7 with is left foot, his right shoulder would be 4 boards right of 1. That's why I mentioned lofting the gutter as a kid. This person is probably doing

Boat, If Joe had been more consistent, I might have gathered what you got out of what he said as he used the 7th board and 5th arrow in the same sentence. I'm sorry that I'm a stickler. So he stood on board 7 which places his ball right on board 1. W

He said 5th arrow but I'm sure he meant 5th board. As a kid I got a job at a bowling alley. After using a bug sprayer to lay the oil down and spreading it out with a drag mop, the oil was like STP from the foul line to the pin deck :-) My friends

Playing close to the channel is the same as hitting a golf ball over water. The fear is psychosomatic. Shooting 10 pins for right handers and vice versus for lefties probably falls into the same category. What a bowler can and can't do is mostly i

Outside the squad room, there's a vendor selling "beer" dogs. Supposedly they are cooked in beer or something. I had one, wasn't bad.

People tend to think opposite of what they need on sport patterns. Short patterns tend to have more oil up front, and (obviously) a lot of backend. Your earliest/smoothest ball is usually best on short, usually playing straight and outside. You want

Don't drink too heavily or stay up too late. If you've gone there to bowl, leave the entertainment for another time. It helps to get your mind right before you bowl, that you may have to grind-out every game. This will help you from being taken ou
