I will be planning to bowl in some PBA regionals for the first time within the next few months.
The only real question I have is how the qualifying rounds are bowled. I know that everyone is assigned a squad and a squad time, but when I have gone to watch some of the regionals I see bowlers switching lanes all over the place after each of their qualifying games. So, exactly how does everyone know what lanes they are to bowl on in what order, or does it not matter as long as each game is on a different pair that is available? And, does everyone just do their own bowling during the qualifying or are you paired up with others in the same squad and move around with that same person until all the qualifying games are bowled? In some cases it seemed like bowlers just went to whichever lane was available when they were ready to start a new game.
I would appreciate any info on this. I am just a little confused on how to figure out the order of lanes you bowl on in the qualifyer, so hopefully someone who knows or has done it can help me out.
