No, ISYL bowlers WANT tough conditions; they want sport shot. It is getting harder to find places that know how to put a sport shot out. At one time this place did, but lost it when they laid off a lot of personnel.

Complaint was not that the house was too hard, but rather way to easy. Yeah, you probably made the cut because it was a house shot . You probably roll with lots of revs and ball speed so you smash the rack of pins. Brunswick at one time used to put out sport conditions, but now only time it does if USBC or Pros (PBA) or someone that knows how to do it right does it for them. The entire industry has been making it easier for the bottom of the pile to feel good, make them think they really know how to bowl but really easy conditions deceive them. So top bowlers are now rolling ridiculous numbers of 300 games and 800 pin series. The sport has gone to hell in a hand basket.

Oh my god quit your complaining about the conditions. All of you in the ISYL always complain "its too hard", well if its too hard then quit. I love this place so much that I hope that the tournament comes to this center again. Do not listen to anonymous because they probably dont know {deleted} about bowling.

At one time in the past, this Brunswick Zone knew how to put out a sport shot. Atlanta HQ did massive layoffs in late 2008. This house has obviously lost ALL of its personnel that know what to do to correctly layout lanes. A supposed sport shot tournament took place yesterday here. Well, the tournament was a scorefest. Many scores were above 250: Unusually high number of 290's + to 300 were scored. Cut to match play required a 220 + average. Usually a sport shot cut is between 190 to 205 average. Several (disproportionately) 290 plus scores (including a 300) were done on lanes 29 and 30. Several experienced bowlers suspected that a house shot was laid out on that pair for a Sunday morning Senior Men's League; BZ staff anticipating that is who would be using those lanes. Our tournament needed those lanes since we had so many walk-ons and the Senior Men's League had a bunch of no shows. Well, we more experienced sport bowlers suspect that the BZ staff never changed the oil pattern to sport shot on 29-30. We also suspect BZ laid out the sport pattern on top of the previous days house shot on lanes 1 thru 28. High scores do NOT necessarily mean that good bowling has taken place; it can mean really easy lane conditions. I for one hope that our tour NEVER comes back here (and my scores were not bad). The integrity/credibility of our tour has been compromised by lousy lane conditions on 09/19/2010 at another house and this one here on 10/17/2010. Warning: Sport Bowling Tour Directors, STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.
