Been a few years since I have hit Nationals. Miss it. My son will be 18 next go-around. Sincerely hoping that my dad, wife, myself and my son will be able to do this for the first time as a foursome with one other.

Not to be ignorant, but where will the event be held in 2017? Vegas? Reno?

Thanks everyone.

Thanks everyone.


2017 will be in Vegas at the brand new South Point Bowling Plaza. 2018 heads east to Syracuse, NY.

I'm hitting the road tomorrow, bright and early, for about a 14 hour drive to Reno. My group includes my wife, and my parents, and it is indeed a great trip when the family can go together. We look forward to it every year.

I'll be in late Thursday. Friday I plan to bowl the Bowler's Journal and the 40 Frame Game. Saturday I'll be watch McNiel and the Lakers for the second year in a row, hoping to watch them make history again. I bowl Team Saturday at 8pm, and D/S Sunday at 9am.

I'll be reporting frequently. I love this tournament. I'm a junkie for it. Can't wait to get on the road.

Here's the short recap of my 2016 tournament.

Bowled the Bowler's Journal. Shot 231 first game, but after we switched pairs, never got lined up again, and settled for 558. Didn't feel like the lanes were all that hard.

Bowled the team practice on the showcase lanes. Had a great look. Threw a lot of strikes.

Team event, I started well with only a couple splits. 184 and 187 to start. Then I start game three with 9- 9- 9- and finish with a 148 for 519. Irritated with the last game, but not overly upset. Lanes weren't that hard in my opinion.

Doubles and Singles my partner and I were on a different pair than our team. The four other guys we were bowling with had no strategy and the lanes got trickier and trickier ever game. I shot 552 in doubles with a motivating 221 last game. Singles was an awful grind, finishing with 485.

I had a 1556 All-Events, which is bad, but better than last year. I personally didn't think the lanes were all that tough to start, and I'm surprised the great teams are having so much trouble making them nice. The backends are much tamer than last year, and the track has a nice shot that the average bowler would be very comfortable shooting...just don't miss your breakpoint.

I head home tomorrow. 12 hour drive.

I had a couple of 190's. But never broke 500 in any event. I was surprised about the prices in the pro shops, never seen them sell stuff for that cheap. I picked up a bowling ball and about 4 shirts. Has for the casino's they really didn't have the deals like they did a couple of years ago. I guess the highlight of my trip was the wife hitting a slot machine for 600 bucks. It was a silent ride back home. Couple of my teammates said they would think about Las Vegas. There still feel pretty down right now.

Also Champ, My dad is 78 now. 2017 might be the best chance to make the three generation thing work. Syracuse is a bit far for us all at this time of our lives. So, thanks for your info.
