  • Poll For Sanctioned Centers

    This poll is for members who work a center sanctioned by USBC or any other governing body in your local area that sets the rules for lanes and equipment specs.

    Members are not in any way connected to responses.

    Has your supervisor asked you to make lane or bowling equipment adjustments in your center that do not conform to USBC or other rules in order to increase scores?

    Please be very careful about your comments. Remember that many people including your boss could be reading.

    The poll is expired.

      This seems awfully familiar.

        NO and if I was asked to do so I would say no way.
        We have always played by the rules and lanes always in compliance.

                I am the supervisor and I would never tell myself to do that! And if I did I wouldn't do it!

                    Todays lanes and equipment make the game "stupid easy".
                    There is no need to do any cheating.

                      No never been asked to do that. As Wookie said lanes are so easy there is no need to cheat.

                      Although at another center one of the bowlers asked me to tamper with the lanes of another team because of a bet. When I said no he said no one but he and I would know. I wish that talked to the boss about it so we could have taken and split the $100.00 he offered and then moved the teams he was trying to get me mess with because of some machine breakdown. It would have served him right if we had, he made a bet and was trying to cheat to win.

                          We don't even make lane conditions as easy as possible so a 300 game still means something.

                          We made the local news with this one.

                              Remember how rotten kids become when their parents give them everything in stead of making them work for it?

                              Wouldn't you want your surgeon to be accurate instead of just getting in the area of the problem?

                              Scores keep getting higher while USBC membership keeps dropping...............Umm, ya don't suppose the two are connected in any way do ya?
