Good luck. A few words of wisdom, don't try to fight the lanes and play where they need to be played.

Good luck Slate, I bowled my first one in years last year it was great, My teammates made it clear it was no big deal how I did so that took a lot of pressure off.

I did ok got my average or little better even won a bracket not sure how lol but was great experience. Enjoy!

First tournament is fun and scarey. Or I should say....nerve racking. Try to stay calm and just let your body do the bowling it knows it can do. Just remember as you bowl more tournaments the feeling you will have this weekend will mellow. So enjoy it for the excitement it is.

Just got home from the tournament and WE WON!!!!!! I did not bowl great just hit may avg but my teammates did very well. Won $250 and now go on to the tournament of champions in May. These are just little local tournaments but still very happy to win and had a ton of fun. I was chacing the lanes all day, def diff from bowling on a normal house shot/league pattern.
