Re: Equipment Spec's has ruled to suspend the 3 unit rule!

In other words, the USBC has totally dropped the ball in terms of maintaining the integrity of the equipment, so they throw up their hands and say, "Oh, well, it's out of control, so now we'll do more of nothing to preserve the game." How long are we going to keep paying sanction fees to an organiz...

Re: What do you pay with for bowling? Everything?

The league I run is changing over to digital payments with Venmo. No more cash. Cash is a shared surface considering I pay out close to every night.

Re: What is BowlingChat worth to you?

BowlingChat allows for a discussion to be dealt with in real time as opposed to reading a magazine. Personally, I think BowlingChat is a much better read. It seems, BowlingChat originated with a purpose, to provide information from a specified group of people in the industry. That has changed somew...

Re: What is BowlingChat worth to you?

Thanks John and Jim. I'm sure those that want anarchy, chaos, performance art for their entertainment are disappointed with the lack of drama here. I havent had to give someone a break in 3+ years. If that's heavy handed, I dont know how to be lighter. If you would like to review the bans and suspen...

Re: Are Fall leagues possible (and what is the limit?)

Ok, thanks. My center wasn’t opening until today and didn’t know what was happening. That’s the first article I’ve seen listing the requirements, WNY not as good sending out the info I think that applies to all of New York. I've been disappointed with the lack of transparency of the process of gett...

Re: Are Fall leagues possible (and what is the limit?)

Whatever your state allows. NY opens Monday and it’s 50% capacity skipping a pair in between. See how it goes That is not the state mandate. It is masks at all times, 50% capacity and every other LANE. https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/governor-cuomo-announces-bowling-alleys-can-reopen-50-percent-ca...

If you are on a PC or laptop, its CTRL-A.
Phone, it would depend on the phone.
Try holding your finger down on the yellow text and see if a menu comes up and says "SELECT ALL".

Sorry, text substitution in a database as part of an update is risky business.
I recomment "select all" on the page to better see the posts by him.

Re: Is this ball drilled upside down or wrong?

The hand is the CG marker, not where the hand should go.
The ball should be engraved with an X to show the orientation of the ball, the CG punch is unlikely to be an accepted substitute.

Re: USBC Nationals for 2020 Cancelled - good or bad thing?

I won’t be bowling this fall either. I’ve been wanting to take some time off for awhile, like miss a season kind of time off. I think this is the perfect time in order to keep myself and those around me safe. It’s really unfortunate because if I do come back, there will most likely be less alleys a...
