I'd get used to higher competition. Roll in ABT or NABI tournaments. Generally, local Associations run tournaments. We have scratch tournaments every other week around here. Find houses tha cater to these. They are generally privately owned, as the chains run B-Day parties and other events on weekends that ruin bowling times for tournaments.

Search out higher level leagues or scratch leagues to keep you competitive and improving. Bowl at different houses to become acquainted with different conditions. Learn the oiling schedule at houses to always practice on fresh shots. Bowl on Sport shot leagues.

Don't believe the desk person who says when confronted with dry lanes, "well you have to learn to bowl on every kind of shot". I have yet to find a tournament advertised as dry lanes.

Good luck.

The downside of this practice was that I found my bowling time shifting from mid week nights to week ends. Week nights were filled with social leagues. Week ends were more competitive.
