I played on brand new lanes last night but what struck me was that the distance from the dots i normally start on to the foul line "seemed" to be further away.
My timing was way off because of this and i started to ask around if anyone else had probs.
Some peeps did not seem to notice but a few of the high avg players told me they too had the prob.
How on earth can they lay a brand new lane with diff specs?.Have played in numerous alleys around Europe and never encountered anything like this.
And where does it happen?....right in my home town bowling.
I started out with a 177 because i missed 3 easy spares which i normally never miss.
5th frame after asking around and coming to the conclusion it wasn't just me having the probs i moved forward 30cm and timing instantly was back.
2nd game i shot a 278!!!! sadly leaving the 10pin in the 10th which i converted and my last ball went the exact way leaving the 10pin.
Geeeezzzzz nervewrecking stuff when i reached the 8th strike and after i made the 9th i relaxed somewhat.Never knew i was that cool starting the 10th frame with 9 in a row.There it all went wrong but very happy with the 278.
Ended the night with a 201 resulting in a 659.

Back on my own topic smile ....has anyone had this distance problem ?
