Thanks, Vince (VFF57). If you bowled your Virtual League average at tournaments, you would do quite well!

We bowled team, then singles, then doubles. For the team event, the pair I bowled on played like the Scorpion. There was longer oil with some friction to the outside and down the lane. I was able to use my Rogue Cell, stand 21 and look at 7 at the arrows. I shot 737 for series.

To the chagrin of all the bowlers that changed pairs, the singles pair was more like Cheetah. Unfortunately, it took a few games to realize that. The ball I used for the team event was giving me an over-under reaction when I tried to play the same line. Hoping for more oil inside and to smooth out the reaction, second game I switched to my particle Ogre and moved inside. But the ball just wanted to hook early. So, third game I switched to a weaker ball, my Cherry Vibe, moved outside, but that reacted even stronger to the dry. By the end of singles, I was standing 30, looking 10 at the arrows, and hooking the whole lane with the Cherry Vibe. I did not score well at all, shooting a dismal 530 for series.

The pair for doubles was more like the Cheetah pattern again. But, I was a little more prepared. I went back to my Rogue Cell, and played from 20 to 5, a sharper outside angle, and finished with a modest 634 series, and 1901 all events.

I had only bowled at this house once before, and the shot then was more like the Doubles and Singles pairs. I guess whoever got to bowl on the more Scorpion-like pairs had a bit of an advantage. But, that's the luck of the draw. The lanes are synthetic, with wood backends. So, that may account for some of the difference.
