So,
I'm going to start practicing next week (as usual a month before I bowl the USBC).   My team bowls in Reno in early April and I need to start getting my game together so I don't embarrass myself.  
I haven't bowled in about six months other than the Pro-Am in Dublin a few weeks back and it takes me a couple weeks to get it together.
I need any insights that the board can provide about the condition and what to expect.
Where are the guys that are shooting the big numbers playing? 
What kind of equipment are they using? 
Anything you can share that would be helpful is much appreciated!
Mike

Funny you brought this up. We just bowled on this last night. The only thing I could get to work with any decency was standing about 20 and getting it to about the 12 board with an OOB Reign. Unless you can do some major breaking down of the oil, anything right of 10 board is a goner. So I guess all I can say is that unless you break down the oil to the outside a lot, keep your break point as close to the headpin as possible.

They front-loaded a lot of 2 to 2 loads this year (this means stay the hell away from 10 and out), and with the new drop-brush technology for the Kegel machines, it's quite interesting.  It basically makes the midlane much more structurally sound without needing as much reverse oil.

If you don't have the upgrade, your center should look into it.  It's like $20 more, and it makes the KOSI much much much more useable for people.

I leave on Wednesday of next week, and bowl the 12th at 2:30pm for team, and the 13th at 9:20 for D/S.

Feel free to watch me make an ass of myself on the USBC webcams.  When I get my lane assignments I'll post it.
