    I know I'm replying to a old post, but just had to share a recent experience. I was in a local bar not long ago, and they had a bowling video game not far from the table we were sitting at. Pretty cool game I thought as I was sitting down with my friends (all from the same bowling center I work at), and thought it was even cooler as it featured A-2 machines. As no one was playing it, it kept going through a video loop of a ball rolling down the lane, hitting the pins, rake coming down, and then a new set of pins were set. As I was talking to my friends, I noticed the game freeze as someone walked between our table and the machine. On the game the rake was down, and it was setting pins. I didn't notice it for a second until one of my friends caught my attention again and asked why I was staring at the machine, and was asking why I spaced out in the middle of a sentence. It was hard to keep from laughing as I explained to the others, that I was sorry for spacing out on them, but I was about to call an out of range on the video game!

        I think I've asked you this before Ted. But what happened to your mini-lane with the fullsized 82-70, that was in the Eldorado Casino for one of the nationals 10-15 years ago? That was a cool set up, would be cool to have for the little kids if I ever had the luxury of starting a center and had the extra room.

          That was a blast designing and building it to be portable. They originally intended to keep using it during big tournaments, but I learned the revenue lost from removing so many slots was partly to blame in changing their minds. Also, like in homes, there seemed to be a lack of appreciation for maintenance.
          So, they shipped it back to me. It was sold to a Doctor in San Diego about 5 or 6 years ago. I went there to set it up while they were building the home.
