I don't think mine is in the track exactly, unless I start tracking lower. Its close I'll see tonight as I'll probably try to being the night with it. It did well last week when I executed my shot. Only reason I even had it fixed was it being near the track. I've recently put another gouge in it, but well away from the track on the other side of the ball and it doesn't bother me, well it does when I grab the ball and happen to place a finger right there. I kind of blame myself for both of gouges. I lost my cool slightly at either a bad shot, or a good shot that both left some sort of split and just grabbed the ball and threw it hard down the lane trying to get pins moving around. This was before I threw the plastic back in the bag.

I appreciate all the feedback. I likely will never bowl at Falls Church again unless I hear they've completely re-done their ball returns. Unfortunate, because I rather like their staff there. I'll be giving my business to Annandale, Burke, and sometimes Edsall/Shirley.

Like you all said, it's not an option to keep bowling at a place that is destroying balls.

Happy bowling everyone smile

On a side note, I've been consistently putting up 200+ on THS around the area and feel good about my game lately. Fun stuff!

Annandale is the place that didn't have any air conditioning all last summer so unless you like bowling in sweltering heat I would stay clear of that dump. I would stick with Edsal rd/Shirley.
