Why Your Bowling Ball Changes Performance (Lane Shine)

Leagues with underage bowlers now required Safesport

Ok something new for leagues to worry about,underage bowlers. Here's the TL;DR version. If a adult league let's a under 18 player join the league (which maybe unlikely to happen, but it could), everyone on that league would be required to take a 2 hour class on how to not molest the underage players...

She would complain to the officals that Lady "B" was delaying the game by waiting for her ball to return instead of just using a...

Solid vs. Pearl Bowling Balls with the same surface compared

Okay this video was just supposed to be showing that you could sand pearls and polish solids plus shilling CTD and Trucut products.

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

Short version is the USBC finally listened to everyone, studies the situation etc. and figured out the current lane dressing rules no longer work with todays ball technology. So they are suspending the 3 unit minimum rule and sitting back to watch what happens, then figure out what to do from there....
