My SO and I are going to bowl in a USBC senior tournament this Saturday at Mouse Trap Lanes in Woodbine, NJ. It should be a lot of fun.

I hope to improve on my last outing. I made the cut in a no-tap but a couple early splits in the one game final kept me out of the money.

I'm also thinking about the ABT tournament on Sunday. It's relatively local and I'm rolling the ball pretty well these days.

Good luck! I might hit a tournament this weekend- everyone qualifies on 3 different oil patterns. One game in a 35' pattern, one on a 40' pattern, and one on a 45' pattern. Not sure what happens after that.
Bowled one last weekend on the Kegel Dead Mans Curve (42') pattern. Went 194-214-205-175, missed the cut by about 50. Completely lost ball reaction last game, or would have contended for a spot in the finals.

Bowl up a Storm!

Good luck to all if you decide to bowl a tournament this weekend. I find that tournaments, especially going to different bowling centers, and bowling on different oil patterns, adds a fun, challenging, and sometimes rewarding dimension to the sport of bowling.

This weekend, there was an over/under 35 doubles tournament 90 miles from home at a small bowling center with only 4 games qualifying. Too far and too few games for me. So, I am going to pass and meet up with the local practice "league" that bowls sweepers every Sunday morning. Not a lot of money involved...if you have a good day, you might get your $15 back...but a fun group and good practice nonetheless.

I'm bowling match play in the biggest local tournament this weekend. Second time making it this far, but first as a two hander. Got the last qualifying spot. Bowling against some really good bowlers, but hoping I can stay focused and throw consistent shots. Try to stay relaxed and have some fun as well.
