Sometimes bowling in too many houses under too many varying conditions only adds confusion to trying to advance.

I understand that there's the social aspect. But it depends on your priorities. If you want all this social interaction that's fine, but you'll have to understand that it may make getting better more difficult.

I agree with Erin on this one. Anna it's great that you want to improve, but like I said before you can't rush progress. You have the right ideas, but you're going about it the wrong way. To bowl on varing lane conditions will only defeat your purpose in improving. In order to do well on varing lane conditions from house to house, you first have to learn each condition first and to know how to adjust. You're only gonna tie yourself up in knots and confuse yourself even more, because you're trying to learn too much at once. And when you work with your coach you have to listen to what she suggests and tells you what to work on. And if you can't do that then you wasted your money and time and defeated the purpose for learning and improving. Don't rely on coaching as being a quick fix and that you'll improve overnight. The only way that coaching can really benefit you is when you work on the things that he or she suggests that you work on and you dedicate the time to practice on working on those elements. You want to practice you don't want to do that in league. You have to practice when there's open bowling and try to see if the person at the desk can isolate you from other people so that you can concentrate on what you set out to work on in practice.

Every shot that you have ever thrown or ever have seen thrown is in your head. For these shots and the lane condtions on which they were made to be useful, your shots and the lane conditions must be comprehended, processed and categorized in your mind before you can execute them in future settings consistently.

You are in a situation that makes it a little more difficult to realize consistent shot making skills, no doubt as has already been mentioned, due to the fact that you are bowling on so many varying conditions. It is harder to see the trees because of the forest.

But take heart you have acquired the help of "Stormin" Carol Norman a Storm Team Member. From what I have heard, they have a great instructional system. This is a very sound step in the right direction. No doubt one of the components of the instruction will involve lane play. which will bring you face to face with varying lane conditions and how to play them.
