As referred to in BobH's thread, here's the actual pattern:

http://usbcongress.http.internapcdn.net/...-oc-pattern.pdf

The differences (click here for last year's pattern) are that it's a foot longer, but uses the reverse drop brush at a shorter distance, and there's a little more shape to the pattern with higher ratios, meaning there should be a little bit more miss room than last year. Break point should be the 10 board, going by Joe Slowinski's formula.

Competition gets underway Friday.

Usually, the first 300 game is posted in the tournament before the first 800 series, but that isn't the case this year, as Stephen Sutphin (46, Howey in the Hills, FL) put together games of 290, 289, and 248 in doubles for an 827 set yesterday.

Just saw on the USBC's Twitter feed that Curtis Odom of Coldwater, MI threw the first 300 game of the tournament today in doubles. Will post the Bowl.com story when I see it.

As promised, the Curtis Odom story...

http://www.bowl.com/news/xmlburner.jsp?xa=./webapps/ROOT/news/main/data/031311CurtisOdom.xml

Odom, 52, was a one-time journeyman on the PBA Tour who had never won a title, but did win the Steve Nagy Sportsmanship Award in 1996.
