Bowling in the Hummdinger tourney this weekend.
Local one 4 games across all 8 of their lanes (yes all of their lanes)
Ball returns are old school on top of the lanes all the way down. Righties smacking the return with you leg on ten pins.
Should be interesting

Good luck! I am not sure if I would be able to breathe in such a small center smile

I've only ever bowled where there were above lane returns once. It was a tournament I bowled in while I was at college at a small 6 lane center in the student center of another college. I remember it quite well because on one of the pairs, the ball would occasionally fall off of the return track and come back up the gutter and would be launched up onto the approach by the incline at the end of the gutter. We had to keep our eyes open on that pair, to say the least. Oh yeah, and of course, there was the trail leg hitting the return on the corner pins.

last couple of years i've bowled in a tourney in a 6 lane house, above ground ball returns, and it's about a 6" step up onto the approach. worst part is, lane 6 is right up against the wall. funny part is, this place looks to be the best maintained of all the houses i've been to.

804 scratch is leading this tourney as you bowl 4 games across all 8 lanes. Bowled terrible didn't hit my 213 average at all but came close once. Speaking of wall, not only did you have balls coming back at you in 3D you had poles in betweens some of the lanes, off set pins,lanes breaking down left and right, the ball return wheel overheating so every ball would get stuck and you'd have to stick your hand into it to retrieve your ball. Smacking the ball return with your back foot on any ten pin or 7 pin shot. Pocket hit leaving a stone 4 pin ( I don't know just put my arms up and another guys said how did that happen)
All and All a fun tourney!!!
