Re: Damage to the bowling ball, bowling alley says never seen anything like it before

The bowling alley that it happend at said it couldn't be fixed offered me $30. I took it to another place and they said it could be fixed. The problem with that is that bowling alley is on base and they are shut down and who knows what is going to happen. my cousin has like 3-4 bowling balls suppose...

I don't know how to post this. It seems that they are extending the quarantine to the end of april. The leagues were suppose to stop mid or early april. So what happens? In the rule book does it say anything about there has to be a position round between the teams? If you prepaid for the last 2 week...

Re: Completely forgetting what to do when the time is right for it

I was in a sport league last year but didn't know how to throw the ball properly until recently so hopefully things are different. And yes hopefully things return to normal soon but thing aren't looking good. Someone told me I can't even leave the state now but hopefully in the next few weeks things...

Re: Completely forgetting what to do when the time is right for it

I know boomer that is what gets me. When do you know to make like a 8 or 10 board move left and 5 board move left at the arrows? I am used to half a board moves, then I did 1 board moves and I just started doing the 2 and 1. I can do a 20 board jump right and throw up the boards, but that is because...

Re: Bowling withdrawal or an opportunity to improve?

I see it as opportunity to recover. My left knee has been hurting a little on and off and this off time is good for it I think. It is a good time to watch videos and learn things though. hard to keep fit when the gyms are closed.

Re: Completely forgetting what to do when the time is right for it

I didn't try to throw the ball to the gutter because I didn't see it getting any friction there. I can play inside of 5 if needed, but I doubt that was the correct shot. I meant the dot at the feet. For example I see a 10 pin. I put my left foot 7 boards left of the last dot and throw accross 4th ar...

Completely forgetting what to do when the time is right for it

Since there isn't much going on at the current time, I have had time to reflect. I went to the bowling tournament in baton rouge. The 2nd day of the tournament, we bowled at all star lanes. 1st day at circle bowl the lanes acted "normal" At all star lanes, in practice I tried to play the lanes the s...

Re: Slide pad maintenance...

How often are you suppose to replace the heel/ front part of it. I have " the 9,s" and have had these for like a year or two. I went to circle bowl in BR today. I ton of people complained of no slide. One guy I overheard, said that he fell flat on the lanes the first time he threw a ball. I put on h...

Re: USBC postpones or suspends national events until May 1

I got to leave for it in the next 30 min. If I didn't have people down there already I would cancel myself. If people on my team don't show up I guess we can cancel. We had booked the 28th but sent it in the day before and all of those were booked.

Re: Overcoming Slow Starts

You didn't provide too much information. Why is the first game low? You can't reach the pocket, are you missing spares? Are you missing your mark in the 1st game but not so much the others? I had a slow start tonight, missing the 7 pin in the first frame of the first game. Still came back to get 226...

Re: Need more help on playing the lane "extreme hooking backends"

Thanks for the comment Tomahawk. This was not for practice. I know where I am most effective at. The problem is that the people oiled the lanes and that took away that part of the lane for me. In the past few weeks, I was able to miss right and anywhere I miss right, it would come back and hit the p...

I started at 33 at the dots to 13/14 at the arrows to somewhere 8 or right of that 15.6mph or so on the monitor I didn't look 1 time where I was at the range finders, I need to start doing that bad. ( i was more judging the distance seeing if I got it out far enough or not). I ended up standing on 3...

There iks no oil from 8 to the gutter you can see it when you start. I played 14 to 8 to start. i didnt have a ball for a tight inside line. Thurs if ...

Re: Hot Off the Press with Lou Marquez - The Fitting Process (6 parts)

I had this guy do mine and he took his time and I really like the fit. Mo pinel will be doing the same thing in baton rouge when I go there this weekend. No need to get him to do a fit right? https://www.facebook.com/Southern-Bowling-Congress-329773543715691/ (that is the thing about Mo pinel being ...

Need more help on playing the lane "extreme hooking backends"

I posted before about this but this is a little different. Here is a statement that I thought was true. If the backends are hooking like mad and you can't keep the ball on the right side of the headpin, then there are a few things you can do. #1 Instead of a cupped wrist, used more of a firm wrist a...

Re: Direction and Line of Play

I had an issue with this and still sometimes mess up and don't do it correctly. When I do this, I have my feet pointed toward the / line I intend to throw. I twist my body (shoulders) to the right so that my intended swing line is lined up correctly (for instance If stand 2 left of the last dot, I w...

Thumb hole is either too loose or too tight when using.

My spare ball was destroyed 3 weeks ago. I just got a new WD plastic ball drilled at wicks. The first time I threw the ball I aimed at the 8 pin and the ball flew off my hand to the right toward the 10. I put tape on it and then it got stuck and few off in the left gutter. The same thing happened in...
