One more month to go. A few more names that I recognize have been added to the roster:
I am happy to have all of my equipment ready now along with a general lane play strategy. Other incidentals include dress pants and my name embroidered on a collared shirt. I am used to bowling in shorts, sweats, and T-shirts, so it took some shopping around. I found the most comfortable dress pants for bowling to be in the golf section at a sporting goods store. What, no bowling attire section?! Hehe, maybe someday.
Also, I wanted to be able to touch up the surface on my equipment while I am there, but really did not want to bring my spinner. I am already planning to have 10 bowling balls in the car. So, I found a bowling ball cup mounted on ball bearings that should help get the job done and be much more portable. http://www.polishyourball.com/Ball_Holders.html
I have tournaments lined up almost every weekend leading up to the USBC Masters. I have been doing well so far, and that has given me a boost in confidence. Only 4 more weeks to go...
Btw, there is a Win-A-Spot tournament on 1/23 at the host bowling center, Carolier Lanes. For anybody interested, there is a $55 entry fee, and 1 in 10 entries will receive an entry to the 2013 USBC Masters tournament. http://usbcongress.http.internapcdn.net/usbcongress/bowl/masters/2013/win_a_spot_entry_form.pdf
