  1. Resurfacing Retro Balls

    A while back I bought a couple bowling balls with bags at good will for $1 each. I wanted the bags, I mean check out this sweet retro bag!


    So I had a couple pretty beat up bowling balls that I didn't know what to do with. I looking into having them resurfaced and re-drilled but the price was too high for balls of such age. Going by serial numbers I determined that the dark red Columbia 300 White Dot is from '85 and the Brunswick ...

  2. Bowling is bowling.

    I'm not sure how to change my username can someone help with that? So i'm just writing this blog entry in order to blow off some steam. I create a general dislike towards myself because of my failures in bowling. Last night I had a shot at a 300 and an 800 in the same set again. I say again because I have done it before. Problem was that this time I was nervous for no real reason. I bowl in a house where it takes a damn miracle for anyone to get 11 in a row. It's very easy to throw pocket 7-10s, ...
  3. The "Bear" Necessities - First Time on PBA Bear

    Last night I had my first exposure to the PBA Bear pattern in the pattern league I am bowling in this summer. Let's start by thanking the powers that be for making this the first pattern of the season...one that reduced the 220-230 house bowler to shooting under 600 in a four game set, and to what I could only imagine as Aslan's delight, the two handed bowlers missing the head pin in all ways imaginable.

    First I will discuss my initial game plan for this pattern. The pattern itself ...
  4. The first step to fixing your timing is knowing what it is...

    I decided to start this blog for a few varying reasons, some that are solely for personal benefit and some that may in some way assist the random person who stumbles upon this blog. As a personal gain this can be used as a tool to track my changes, thoughts on challenging patterns, and as an easy way to share thoughts with bowling acquaintances. For others this can be used as a tool to think about something in a different way, a reminder of a key fundamental that has been ignored or forgotten, ...
  5. Thunderstorms

    I'VE OFTEN HEARD IT SAID:
    ANGELS IN HEAVEN ARE HAVING A BOWLING TOURNAMENT
    THE LOUD CLASH IS DUE TO THE STRIKES BEING MADE AND THE
    ROLLING THUNDER ARE THE BALLS ROLLING DOWN THE LANES
    AND OF COURSE WHEN YOU SEE THE FLASHES OF LIGHTNING
    YOU KNOW THEY ARE TAKING PICTURES OF THE ANGELS THAT WON
    THE TOURNAMENT AND THE FALLING RAIN HAPPENS TO BE
    THE ANGELS TEARS OF JOY BECAUSE THEY ARE SO OVERWHELMED
    WITH THE THRILL OF BOWLING NOT TO MENTION ...

  8. My review on Welcome 2 Bowling Clinic at ITRC,Arlington,Tx. by: JUDY CLEMONS

    Welcome 2 Bowling Clinic time was 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
    Saturday April 13, 2013 at the International Training and Research
    Center, Arlington, Texas.
    I arrived at approximately 12:45 p.m. when my husband dropped
    me off. I wandered into the front door of the facility pulling my 2
    ball duffle roller bag with me. Just inside a short distance were 2
    smiling ladies waiting to greet new arrivals they found my name on
    their list and I was assigned to bowling ...
  9. To Spare Ball or Not To Spare Ball, That is The Question.

    On bowlingboards there is a message thread that talks about the use of spare balls. I was part of the discussion there on using spare balls or not. I was taught at a young age not to try so much for a strike but to focus on picking up the spare. this meant changing my start position to allow my ball to curve back to pick up the spare or hit the pins just so to pick up the spare. With thinking about this topic, I decided to take my Brunswick Ambush(12lb) ball with me to my latest practice session. ...
  10. Back to Bowling

    My name is Jeff and bowling is my game. I have decided to start this blog for several reasons. The first is that I have been bowling ever since I was very young. My dad taught not only me, and my sister, but even got my grandfather into bowling back when he use to work part time at the local bowling alley. I took a 10 and a half year break due to serving in the US Coast Guard. Since getting out, I found that I have more free time than before. So I decided to get back into bowling. I joined ...
  11. The failing USBC

    I have been in a month long argument with the USBC. They have chosen to just not respond anymore, so I feel like it is my duty to bring the problem to the attention of other bowlers. I am ready to wash my hands with the USBC completely and start a national average company myself.

    I bowled a sanctioned 300 on August 2nd of 2011. This being in a summer league that was sanctioned under the 2010-2011 season. I filled out my award form, and payed $60 extra to get the semi precious stone ...

  13. Help with my release

    I started back bowling about year and half ago. I am struggling with my release because my wrist keeps popping before the release of ball. I wear a wrist support but doesn't stop the popping. Am I doing something wrong during my release?
  14. Lane conditions what's your opinion?

    I have been bowling on a league for about seven years now . In every house I have been in they have cleaned and oiled the lanes and finished 20min. before practice. Now with that said the hose Iím bowling in now oils and clean lanes at 9 or 11 am we start practice at 6:45 pm and I live in Phoenix , Az. HOT in the summer. Now the House says that is normal and there is nothing wrong with the lanes. Iím not a an expert but when oil sets it will gather to low spots on a surface. No matter how thick ...

  16. Think my GF/Bowling partner broke her toe..

    We before we went to bowl last night in my weekly 9 pin no tap trny, she wanted to try to "kick my butt" while i was packing us my bags. She came over and was pushing around so i started to play back. then we started to get like all MMA on each other (just playing not really fighting) But to make a long story shot she went to try to kick and i pulled my leg up to block and *CRACK* her toe against my knee... Well we iced it right away and figured it was just jammed (which i still think ...
