Bowling — PBA

CP3 PBA Celebrity Invitational

Posted by CtD Staffing on

Dustin Zehner Every year the PBA puts together a charity bowling event in partnership with the Chris Paul Family Foundation. The event has current and former athletes, TV personalities, and music artists. These celebrities are paired with professional bowlers to compete in a 6 frame baker match.

Everyone is an Engineer at the US Open

Posted by Ronald Hickland on

This past week I had the opportunity to work at one of bowling’s most grueling events — The U.S. Open.  This event had competitors scared of the unknown oil pattern. Which proved to be very challenging and competitive. If you want help understanding a lane graph like this and how to play it, visit our website.  We offer a Lane Pattern Analysis Service.Special procedures were done by Kegel and the USBC to ensure that the lanes were flat.  This made them fair for competition.I worked on behalf of the PBA with the Xtraframe team alongside Mike Jakubowski and Jef Goodger....
