I have this system for league in the new house. Took a few weeks to read it correctly, as it switched sides on me. I still read the team totals wrong.

Oh, and our system totals game 1, but keeps a running team total through game 2. So, you have to subtract game 1 to fill out the scorers sheet for game 2. Same for 3. But, the total series is correct.

I better bowl with some one who can operate this. I refuse to walk 20 lanes to the front desk ev time a change is needed.

so, bowled a few weeks, plus we get some free practice games.

I've found my achilles heel here. . . outside of 5 is out of bounds. Unless you can peel the cover off your ball, if you get outside of 5, you're going to take out the 6-10. In fact, I have left only a couple of 10-pins, TOTAL, just because it's so danged easy to get out there and hang. . . LOL

But it also means that my normal doesn't work too well.

I'm hanging in there before I have knee surgery (reasons. Discussions with my orthopedic surgeon.) But it means I canNOT bend my left (slide) knee much at all without pain. It also means that I'm just a touch inconsistent (lol - just a touch) with my slide, which in turn translates to me being a bit inconsistent with my line. I'm MOSTLY there, but I have a tendency to let it out a bit . . . where it hangs.

I've moved way in, and can slow it down and have it hook in just before the pocket. I can run it down 10 and have it come in nicely. But with both. . . if I miss just a bit outside and it runs out to five, then I'm hosed.

Bah.
