Do you bowl first on your team? The lanes take about two frames worth of traffic in the 10th frame, so that might contribute to your difficulties.

Anyway, we have the same problem here, obviously; probably more so since we aren't allowed to smoke inside. As a muscle bowler, I benefit from a quicker pace as much as anybody, but I haven't seen a huge difference.

One thing I try to do when I'm faced with small disruptions is avoid amplifying them with negative thoughts. In this case, you might want to think of the first frame this way: if you throw a strike there, how much is it really worth?

(9/ on that frame, strikes the rest of the way)

10th frame, 3rd shot: 299
1st frame: 290
10th frame, 2nd shot: 289

2nd frame: 280
others: 279

It stands to reason that those three shots are where you should welcome disruption if you're going to have it. For me, the end of the 10th frame is where I often wait to try out a new ball on a different line, with the idea that--if I like the look of the shot--I'll have another 'practice frame' at the beginning of the next game, and then I'll have a better chance to throw strikes in the second frame and forward, where it really counts.

Even if you don't like to change balls, 90% of the time there's no excuse for throwing three strikes in the 10th frame on the same line. Move your feet a board on the third shot, change your target, test the edge of your line in anticipation of a move later...since you're going to be disrupted anyway, take advantage of the opportunity to learn something about the conditions.
