Amateur-
Viper pattern, which is a favorite of mine. I had great looks from multiple angles with multiple balls in practice on Friday, but Saturday was different. I'd never bowled in that house before, and it turned out to be a very high friction synthetic. I think every ball I used is going to need a resurface because the track is so burnt.

The lane courtesy isn't as complex as it sounds. When it's your turn, you wait for the person on your pair opposite you to bowl, then wait for someone on the pairs either side of you. If you leave a spare, that cycle starts all over. Not that cosmic, but wow is it slow. The eight game block took 6 hours yesterday.

Coach-
No big names came out for the tourney. Learned recently that we have a Silver level coach/IPBSIA Pro Shop guy in the area about an hour away, so I'm going visit him soon. I tried following the crowd left with transition, and I found that the further left we went, the more inconsistent my reaction became. The breakdown happened so fast that I was really struggling to keep up with it. I'd leave an 8 or 9, change hand position on the next shot to smooth out the backend, and then leave a pocket 7-10 or 5-7 etc. Change hand position back, move in, and then leave a 2-10. As I moved deeper, it felt like I couldn't keep my fingers in the ball long enough to apply the revs needed to get the ball to recover since the breakpoint stayed around 5 for the whole block. Tried tightening the fingers with tape to no avail, perhaps a pitch adjustment? I don't think I'll stop bowling altogether, but I'm such a mess right now that it's tough to get excited about it. This, too, shall pass though I'm sure thumbsup.
