Dry Lane Bowling — 2 Comments

  1. I’m not an avid bowler, but I do like bowling for fun. I’ve noticed before that one day I would bowl a certain way and get the strike (or at least a spare), but then the next time I went, I could have sworn that I was using the same technique, but it did exactly as you said. I never thought about dry lanes before. I’ll have to watch next time I go. Thanks for the info!

    • Hi Melinda,
      You are welcome for sure! Yes,lanes get drier the more they are used, because the oil gets used up and pushed around.The only time you get fresh oil is when you actually bowl in leagues, or a special event like championship or tournament. If you visit the alley early in the day you may find the oil pattern is heavier because is usually done in the mornings(but not always) for open bowling later. Then you have a harder time getting the ball to turn into the pocket, it wants to slide further down the lane. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment.
