So how does this apply to a bowler that does not use a thumb?  Do they still get to use the "thumb hole" as a "weight hole"?  Advantage?

From the article:

With the elimination of balance holes, bowlers may have up to five holes for gripping purposes and all gripping holes must be used on every delivery.

"The change allowing only a dry towel to clean bowling balls during competition becomes effective Aug. 1, 2019. It eliminates the use of liquid cleaners of any kind during competition, which aligns with other changes to ensure equipment is not manipulated during competition."

GREAT when there are foreign substances deposited by the lanes on my ball is Chad 'the fuckhead' Murphy gonna come clean that shit off my ball? Fuck the USBC! all the sheeple will continue & sing their praises & pay them $$$$.............idiots!

GOOD.

BUT,

 Eliminating weight holes is not the only change.

 Several other things changing as well, so why focus only on weight holes?

Because several posters here are, quite likely, to blow their wad.  It's to be expected.

That being said, I wonder if the dry towel thing includes a shammy?

As long as it's dry, what can they say?

Agreed. It also doesn't say that BPAA owners must keep the lanes and pin setting equipment clean, does it? They wouldn't dare make the owners do anything.

I just didn't know if shammy was included in the "dry towel" description is all...I didn't know how literal "towel" was to be taken.

That is actually one that I was wondering about myself. What constitutes a “dry towel”?

Because that one will cost bowlers money to pay for the plugging. It’ll be the big one to start.

The rest will get their time in the limelight.
