Just a quick note for fellow ABT members... I joined the "tour" last week and am looking forward to bowling in some better tourneys than the local Bowl America ones, etc. The head of the local ABT chapter has been very accommodating and informative.

Good luck in the tournaments you enter. I've thought about it, but the closest chapters are either down near D.C or up in Philadelphia.

Thanks cal. You know a lot of the DC chapter tourneys are bowled in Maryland, right?

I did an ABT here in Chicago about 5 or 6 years ago. I remember using my Red Pearl Shadow playing about 22 board out to 12 cause it was reverse block. Not a fun time.

I was in the ABT about 7-8 years ago.
Did great in the first one winning some pots (paid for a new ball). Then didn't do so hot for awhile. I had one tourney in Lyons Il and was leading after the first day (735 scratch) Came in the second day to bone dry lanes and ended up 36th out of 36. Terrible! Never placed well again.

Good luck with the ABT, I tried to join quite a few years ago, and was denied since I was over 200 at that time (late 70's, early 80's) Ended up joining the KBC instead and won a tornment with 3 second place finishes.. bowled mostly in Northern NJ since it was easier to get there on a Sunday afternoon than trying to get out to Long Island, and fight the traffic on either the Southern State or the LIE back to Staten Island

I knew some of the DC Tournaments were in Maryland close to DC last time I looked at it. After several years of traveling around the Capital Belt Way for work during the week, heading down to it for fun just isn't my idea of fun. At least now the gas prices would make it easier to attempt.

Thanks for the kind words, guys.

Cal - Yeah I feel your pain with having put all the beltways miles under your belt. I'll only be bowling local VA tourneys with the exception of maybe a couple MD events a year (if they're close). I believe there are some Bowie events, but I dunno if that's close to you. Will you be making it out to the ESPN telecast at Country Lanes in December?
