The simple solution would be to use one of the recreational patterns. I was told they were trying to use the same shot as before. It was clearly not the same by evidence of the scoring pace 24 >600 last week 5 >600 this week. No hold inside and out of bonds outside. Also back is the 18 in buffer no oil at the start of the pattern that was not there with the older Kegel.

I swapped out my Buzz PE this week and replaced with the GURU. What a mistake. GURU didn't come out of the bag and BUZZPE would of been the ball of choice. Won't make that mistake again. I suspect next week is going to be different but have no idea until we are on the lanes.

Found out our league was the first time the center used the IKON. Lane man said last week conditions were due to not letting the buffer brush get the proper oil saturation. Shot was better this week. Used my NS for the set. Lanes really pretty consistent.

Using a Lane master Pearl and a polished LM Hybrid, just to keep the ball on the right side. 2 nites of league and averaging over 200. It's a start.

Match the revs and equipment to the lane condition and it seems to work.

Some having trouble with this shot. Stripped back end really snaps.

Here we go again with our new KEGEL FLEX machine. Last week was OK. This week was horrendous. It was like a reverse block again.

It's not the machine. Someone tweaked it. Bet you 10 to 1.

BTW way. There has been no water in the center since Friday. Since, it is on a well, I assume the well pump went out. The Center can't get anyone to repair it unless Corporate approves them. They come back to work today, Monday, I guess.

So, for now, there are gallons of water next to each toilet to use to flush. And, bottled water in concession for drinking or coffee. This is ridiculous.

Bathrooms are disgustingly filthy.

Don't need the backhoe, need a bull dozer.

And, BTW, the septic field in the rear emits an odor that can be smelled in the front parking lot with a westerly wind. Bet that hasn't been pumped in ages.

I'd hate to be in the homes on the other side of the property.

Thank god. Corporate approved a contractor, who replaced the pump in an hour.
That was tuesday. The Health Department came in to sample the well water for Human consumption, tues afternoon. It will be a couple of days before they can see the results and water can be turned back on.

In the mean time, there still are gallons of water next to the toilets. None to drink. No coffee, no soda, as they ran out of bottled water. And, the spending budget is over drawn.

When they turned the building water on, a toilet was stuck on open and flooded the room. The employees are charged with cleaning bathrooms, and no one wants to do that one without a bucket of water and lots of disinfectant.

The toilets were filled with multiple uses and not enough water to flush. Gallons of water just don't create the pressure to flush properly.

So glad I don't bowl there any more. I do bowl in the Sr League on tues at noon. And, you don't want to tick off a bunch of Sr's. They have a tendency to tell you what they think.

BTW, the Regional Mgr came in Tues, and I gave him a piece of my mind. He now avoids me. Time to send an email to Corporate.
