follow, the night would go by just as quickly. However, at my two local
centers it seems like one lane on either side is the norm. When someone
walks up to the line with me it's all I can do not to lose my temper and
yell at them. One of the local bowlers has his pro card and says it's two
pairs on either side for tournaments, and it's strictly enforced to the tune
of warnings, fines and even DQs if not adhered to.
I shot 626 tonight and had guys a lane over on both sides jumping up on me
all night, even after I stepped back for them. I mentioned two-lane
courtesy to a few of them and they looked at me like I'm from another
planet. Sorry to rant but I'm curious as to if this is even taught anymore.
