    Default Hello from Illinois

    I recently returned to bowling after 15 years or so. I bowled as a kid, my family was on leagues so I practically grew up in the house I bowl at now. My dad was a PBA member in the early to mid 90's, had a lot of fun watching him in tournaments.


    I started subbing on a Tuesday night league and my performance was lacking to say the least. I did some homework, picked up some new equipment, and have thrown somewhere around 350-400 games in the last three months working on the whole nine yards. It's amazing how much the technology has changed in 15 years. I'm happy with my progress so far, looking forward to continuing my journey and learning something new with every frame thrown.

    I'm very happy I found this forum, seems like a wealth of knowledge and a great group of people.

    Welcome back to the game. I'm from the NW suburbs as well and work at a local bowling center. Maybe we're pretty close in vicinity? If your close maybe you could come shoot some practice where I work on some old school wood lanes. =)

    I'd love to throw a few on some wood lanes. My local house is Stardust in Addison.

    I'd rather not post the name of my employment without permission so I'll PM you. I know where Stardust is and you are not far at all.
