Happens to everyone. I started our 3rd game and was not paying attention and bowled on the wrong lane.. left a solid 10, which I cringed at because im maybe at best 40% successful at picking it up, when I was stopped and informed I bowled on the wrong lane, duh! Well since I threw the shot I would have been fine bowling my 2nd shot and taking the score for frame 2, then bowling frame 1 on the correct lane. I didnt want it to seem like I got away with one basically. But the other team insisted I rebowl on the correct lane, which was fine by me. So I rebowled and bowled a strike. Though I didnt really feel good about it. How does it work when a shot is taken in the wrong lane by USBC default rules?

I've wondered this too, it's happened a couple of times this year to or against my team and depending on who we were playing we either let them finish out that frame on that lane or rebowl on the other lane. Not sure of the correct procedure.

The other team was correct. After some number of bowlers bowls on the wrong lane, you are supposed to keep the scores. But, for 1 bowler, your shot does not count, and you start that frame over on the correct lane.

Yes, if you were told you were on the wrong lane, your pin count doesn't count, and you have to rebowl on the correct lane.

Now, if you completed the frame on the wrong lane, and another bowler followed you on the wrong lane, the scores count, and the correct lane assignment reverts back to the next bowler on the correct lane.

Heck, be happy you're able to re-bowl the frame! I've done a few times myself. Which the other team says "maybe we shouldn't have told you." Upon striking of course. lol

Oh I was believe me lol. Funny thing is I ended up leaving a 9-, in the 2nd anyways, so most likely would have been the same result and wouldnt have mattered.

I bowled out of turn once. Same thing it doesn't count.

Now if you bowl out of turn on the wrong lane that is very bad. I think the USBC rule in that case is you have to buy everyone on both teams a beer. laugh

Being the 1st position, I have bowled on the wrong lane at times. Unfortunately, I usually bowl a strike on the wrong lane. Then when I bowl over on the correct lane, I would usually get a 9 count.
