OK, for the last 4 weeks in the center where I bowl, the air conditioning has been busted. People sweating all over the place, swollen hands, people sticking from the heat.
My question is, how much does the temp in the center affect the pattern? We bowled on a 40 foot Kegel pattern last swing, where the temp outside was near 100 at the time we were bowling. Seemed like the oil moved MUCH faster and sooner than it usually did before on Middle Road.
Tonight, we started a 37 foot pattern, seemed similar to Viper. The oil also seemed to move very fast.
I know it's probably going to differ, depending on lane surface, and type of oil being used, and probably the oiler.
I can't wait to bowl in air conditioning again.
