  • Tacky Approaches

    I am having an issue with tacky approaches when its raining. I alcohol them before every league. I know its party because the bowlers are walking on the damp carpet in there bowling shoes. But I was just wondering if anyone knows any tricks to improve them.

    Air conditioning is the only thing that will get rid damp.

      Saw dust in the tile bowlers area! Sprinkle a little sawdust in front of your dust mop. Brunswick makes a product called Dry Slide. At first it was a fairly good product but they changed it and now it is talc. Very slippery! You could use Dry Slide but be careful not to use too much. I would not put it directly on the approach though. Only in the tile bowlers area.

        I assume you have synthetic approaches. If so, we have been following drhookmech's procedure of 99% alcohol and Brunswick Formula C Approach Conditioner. By controlling the amount of conditioner in a gallon of alcohol an ounce at a time, you have very good control of the amount of slide of the approaches. We clean 2X a week with straight alcohol and follow that with the conditioner mix in the slide area 1X a week. Our current ratio is 1 oz. per gallon of alcohol. This amopunt can be adjusted accordingly to weather changes and building conditions.
        Here's the thread for more info. Good luck!
