Welcome to the last score report of open practice bowling for the spring season. I will be taking off next week in order to relax before I start the Sport Experience league at Fox Bowl. That being said, let's talk briefly about tonight's outing.
Game 1: The lanes were stable with no significant transition occurring. I primarily used the No Rules Pearl standing roughly center to slightly left throwing out to about 10.
Game 2: The lanes went through a heavy transition, starting the breakdown process. I started with the No Rules Pearl but finished with the Phaze II due to the lanes burning up. Three opens held me back: 7 pin, 3-6-9-10 and a 4-7-10.
Game 3: Used the Phaze II, moving slightly right and using more speed to take the lane out of the equation.
The bowling adventure today was a little rough. After reaching out to my usual centers for open bowling, I ended up at Crest Hill Lanes. I haven't bowled at Crest Hill Lanes in quite some time, so it seemed like a great idea. Unfortunately, some ideas do not go as planned. The lanes felt either burnt or "plastic ballified." Typically, burnt lanes follow a pattern in which you hit your mark consistently, but have to quickly adjust left to keep yourself in the 1-3 pocket. When lanes are "plastic ballified", the oil is much more unpredictable.
