That last post was getting really long and I was afraid some might skip it, and I wanted to touch on another common issue. All too often I see bowlers throwing shots while there is dead wood in the field of play. Most of the time it is in the channel, but on occasion I have seen where people will shoot at spares with dead wood on the lane. As referenced in a rule above, dead wood MUST be removed prior to throwing the next shot. I know many will say that it doesn't matter, I am not going to come anywhere near it, and infact, some time ago I actually had a guy yell at me for having dead wood cleared out of the right channel before I shot at a ten pin. This guy really surprised me, as he is a really good bowler, and as such, one would think that he would respect the rules... not always. I proceeded to tell him about a teammmate of mine earlier that season who had a pin in the gutter just in front of the ten pin. He chose not to clear it, and I was walking back to the settee area just as he released his ball. I watched in disgust as the ball traveled towards the ten pin and just before arriving at it's target, the ball which was VERY near the edge of the lane, struck the dead wood. I have NO DOUBT that despite being on the edge of the lane, this ball would have cleanly spared. Nope. Dead Ball. Nine, miss. We lost the game by 5 pins. Anyway, this guy was still ticked as now my dead wood was cleared, and I have to tell you, I got up on that lane praying to make that spare because I didn't want to walk off that lane after all that commotion with a big whiff. I made it, and I think I made my point.
