Anyone going to the USBC nationals this year? I didn't go last year,because I couldn't get enough guys together for two teams. Ever used subs? Isn't it risky to to go and hope to hook on with a team?

I go every year. We needed someone this past year due to a torn rotator cuff 2 days before we were supposed to get into town. We got a local sub. There are always teams looking for bowlers and there are always bowlers looking for teams. If you have an idea on when you are going, go to bowl.com and get on the sub boards. Also, the message boards is another place to get hooked up with people there. They are a lot of people who aren't very friendly on there but if you can sift through all of the BS, you should be okay.

Oh, and welcome to the site.

We're going the last weekend in July. Not the best time to be in Vegas, but it was the only times left.

The sahara is running a bowlers special with great room rates.

I think I have my youngest son persuaded to go, so I probably won't need to go after a sub. I was beginning to worry, we bowl March 7,8
