  • Bad center conditions in a team challenge!

    Bowled the team challenge in Erlanger, KY this weekend. The bowling center was nice except a few things.

    1. Pins were so bad and mixed you never could get a good signal on how you threw the ball. Maxes and amflites mixed.

    2. If you have bowled this tournament before you know how dry they get....lane 1 had a 3 foot drop off right next to the approach...try to play 28 and not fall over or let it effect your perefial vision...they should have never allowed this.

    3. It was a 64 lane center. 32 lanes on each floor...we bowled on the top floor....DUH...heat rises even in KY. It was a hot day and inside the center was so frekin' hot I formed a mushroom under my armpit. How much intelligence would it have taken to run it downstairs....DUH.

    Until the people who run tournaments get smart our "sport" will continue to slide into recreational status where they will put air hockey on ESPN instead of us.

    Cmon ABC get with it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    team challenges are my "vacations" my only chance to get away from my screaming kids (82-70's)

    ive bowled in pittsburgh, chicago, atlanta, baltimore, and staten island. most centers are the bruns showcase centers. i think the KY stop is one of the few exceptions.

    and the one thing that pops to mind about usin the second floor was (assuming the entrance was on the first floor) was so the center doesnt loose open play....and the open play crowd doesnt walk thru botherin the BWTT bowlers
