My Nationals experience
« on: April 11, 2006, 11:26:56 AM »
Well in my first Nationals experience I managed to embarrass myself to say the least. My event totals were as follows:

Teams- 509
Doubles- 538
Singles- 504

Granted, I didn't have big expectations but I did hope to put on a better showing. However, I did manage to finish 3rd in 2 of my brackets in the team event! All in all if you don't execute YOU WILL NOT SCORE! Folks the shot is there! I won't bother you with my reading of the lanes because to me, Charlest hit it dead on the head with his description. THANKS BUD! I plain and simply did not put the ball where I needed to in order to score.

The best part of this experience was being able to meet and bowl with 3 members from this site.  Tenpinspro himself, T.Brockette, Bowl400 and bobbabouy66.

Rick, Jim, and Tracy are all first class guys that I hope to have many more encounters with. Robert, I appreciate him taking the time to find me and wish me luck. It was awesome meeting him as well and I hope he faired better than I did. Although I didn't get to spend much time getting to know him, he seems like a good guy as well.

Well that's all from me and I hope to bowl with you guys in Reno in 2007.

The pattern and the way they play forced even the power players to play the lanes straighter and up the lanes.  This isn't fair to the power players.
How about they just make the pattern FLAT.  I heard the pattern for the BTM is flat and the scores are not high.  Why do bowlers have to travel so far to bowl on high scoring conditions like our leagues?  Nationals has been a great tournament with  difficult conditions and shooting 2000 is something special, BUT not this year.  I bet 2100 will make top 100 for all events

Isn't this why we should all try to put versatility in our game?
