Coach, let me give you a little update. This is a Brunswick house.
This was the house where the oil patterns were just "UNPLAYABLE".
The original laneman transferred in Aug.
The Backup, who was still in training was helped by the Asst Mgr, and they screwed up the shot, and apparently also caused the outside spray nozzles to malfunction.
New lane man was hired in Oct, and immediately send to classes to work on and learn the machines.
We had an entire league disband, and some teams merged with out league.
After 2 weeks, 2 teams quit, and some bowlers too. Everyone complained.

3 weeks ago, the shot was finally playable, and bowlers commented favorably.
Mgr said there was still some tweeking to do, since, the outside was OK, but still couldn't get a good read at the break. That seems to have been improved.
I believe they are done with the machine tinkering.

New laneman gave me the indication that now his schedule is to perform much neglected maintenance, as on Fri, he had 3 machines torn down and laying on the lane.

1 was lane 16 where I bowled and 6 balls got damaged a month ago. He explained that problem as ball roller in the ball return was worn badly, and balls would just bounce against the metal frame, causing ding marks in balls. I counted 122 ding marks in one of mine.

Some results are the Asst Mgr, who is a PBA card holder and a 230 average has averaged at the 190 mark. In the last 3 weeks, his low series is 750.
I had much trouble and had a 170~ for the first 5 weeks. Checking BowlSK, I am averaging 212 for the past 3 weeks.

The laneman rules. But, the bowlers are happier.
