  • respots

    any help is apreciated,

    Re: respots

    Keith: since you have Qubica you may want to check your pinspots to make sure they aren't moving. Mine have been lately.

    When we write down calls in the back we identify what is observed when we arrive at the lane.

    lane 6 ----------------- respot 6-10
    in the comments column we write
    LOD for laying on deck
    NOD for none on deck
    FROD for full rack on deck 1st ball or 2nd ball.

    We can troubleshoot our calls right on the call sheet. If most of your respots are FROD then you need to go into technical setup and check your camera pinspots.

      Yes definately check you pin spots. We had a problem on lane 19 once, (when i worked at a bowl with qubica) every league had "lane 19 had respot 9 pin) for weeks we couldn't figure it out. We changed the respot cell 3 times. Anyway one of the receptionist (god bless them) had been "playing) and the 9 pin spot was on the 5 pin !. From then the spots were checked weekly.
