Such a great time with great people.

Mo, your wealth of knowledge and no holds barred presentation style keeps me coming back for more.

Mav, my hat is off to you sir for organizing such an event and looking ahead to next year already....well done.

Mike and Monica...despite Mo taking top billing, you 2 are both essential to the success of these events. He is awesome at what he does but cannot do it alone.

Thank you all. I am incredibly sore right now and will be even more in the morning but I want to get back into the bowling alley....like now! I had fallen into a funk and didn't really care if I went to league night over the summer or not....now I want to and go more often.

Incredible....just incredible.

My left quad is still jello and I feel as if I have been sitting on a church pew for 4 hours with a golf ball in my back pocket...BUT.....according to Mo that means I did something right!

Very strange.....I am counting the days until next year already. Hopefully I can get a few more of my locals to come along. My daughter will be attending for sure. Mo, you will love her....she has your heel toe, heel toe run like hell approach down to a science...just needs help getting her hand around the ball.

I cannot wait.....

I am also looking forward to next year. Hope it hits a good weekend again. lol. Thanks again guys. You certainly put on a hell of a show.

Its taken me a bit of time to respond.
What a weekend! I slept 11 hours last night.

This is our 4th seminar in the area and our first at Saratoga Strike Zone.
I agree with Mo, everything at the seminar was picture perfect and flawless in execution.
We walked in and they were ready for us, we even got the VIP room for presentations with dual projector screens. They really rolled out the red carpet for the industry's best.
Karl is the best you could ask for, his attention to detail was impeccable, and we're grateful that he could be there for the seminar. He is a big reason why we were so successful this year.

Mike Luongo is an amazing coach, and a professional to the letter.
Talking with Mike opens a different book on bowling, and is a perfect compliment to Mo's encyclopedia.

You cant say enough about Mo. Each year that goes by, I have a greater appreciation for his passion, drive, endurance, and presentation that keeps drawing you in more and more as the seminar.

Everything came together this year, 6 different oil patterns over 2 days, content that covered just about every aspect of the sport. Ball design, layouts, coaching basics, video examples, advanced techniques, pattern specific bowling, arsenal management and situational bowling discussions. All at a good pace, diagrams to match the content and videos to reinforce. Im not certain we should keep calling this a seminar, because its becoming more of a bowling boot camp.

The participants came from all over the country and world. Arizona, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Florida, and Michael from Zaragoza, Spain.
The participants were all unique in their own way, and each one was bowling better by the end of each session.

We had Alan, from Arizona, we got him a solution to Cheetah by fine tuning reaction with a target layout and the determinator. Alan, couldnt stop striking with it.
Gabby from Florida, a beginner with so much potential and enthusiasm that takes us back to our youth. She's on the right track to meeting her goals.
Natasha with all of the potential to make an impact on the sport locally, with an enthusiastic dad to make it happen.
Michael from Zaragoza, Spain, who traveled across the globe to get the most out of his game and advice from the game's best to take back with him.

The newbies got the direction and advice they wanted to get their game on track, and the veterans of the seminar were given a major helping of new material. So many success stories and I've already gotten inquiries about next year only one day after the seminar ended.

Some attend for the technical knowledge, some attend for the coaching, some even attend for the experience alone, but everyone has one thing in common, they all come to listen to the man, Mo.

The most interesting man in bowling.

Thank you to everyone who attended for making this another unforgettable experience.

Chad and I had such an amazing time. With it being his first and my third, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves to the fullest. Like we told Eric, were already looking forward to next year. Hopefully we can use what we learned over the weekend in a few tournaments! I really needed the eyes and redirection in my game, as I was unaware of a certain habit I had formed... They call me Uppity. Right, Eric? Lol

We both took a lot from the "boot camp", including our new "bibles". I started reading through mine on the way home; but was cut short, due to him being '...too tired to drive...' So I took over. But I'll be spending many a night in that and on the wiki, as I'm sure he will as well.

Thank you so much to everyone for your input, and especially Mo and his impeccable attention to detail. I have nothing but the utmost respect for you, and in my eyes, you truly are a genius. I have a blast every time I go, and it means so much to me to have someone of your stature compliment me on my bowling. I hope to someday make somewhat of a name for myself, and I feel that is possible with the guidance of Mo Pinel.

So thanks again to everyone. It was a blast! Here's to many, many more!

Pam, Gary and I were talking on the way home and we were discussing what could possibly be in store for next year. Every year I have attended has been a bit more each time.

My first year was the True System which focussed on the individuals approach. Year 2 was the release and finish position. Now this year was a lot of lane play and ball tech.

I cannot wait to see where we go from here....as I said earlier....I am in for 2 days next year and I am bringing my daughter to see the Master.....I cannot wait.

I am thoroughly jealous of the milkman right now....at the Innovative seminar getting another 5 days of Mo-magic.

Thank you again to everyone.....

On edit......Eric.....that pic you posted needs to become an 18x24 or so poster for us to take with us at next years seminar.....just food for thought..... :-)
