Consider this a warning for the bowlers out there v a PBA map going to nationals wanting to carry out the 40 frame game.So, myself and also a little group went approximately Sam"s town yesterday to key the 3 PM formation of the 40 framework game. 3 out of 4 that the human being going space PBA members. Together we reserved, us were called we had to be over there by 2:15. Prior to I left for nationals, a many of civilization told me if i do any type of side tournaments, I have to do the 40 frame game, so i was quite excited. So, I begin to check out the rule while wait to inspect in and also they have actually the preeminence updates post pretty big, so I witnessed at the bottom of them the if you space a PBA/PWBA member, girlfriend must educate the competition officials prior to you bowl. I just figured this way that we"d bowl scratch, no big deal. I proceed to go to the tournament official doing check in and asked what the deal was through informing them the we"re PBA members. That proceeds to tell me the "if you"re making a living turn off of bowling, friend won"t be able to bowl the tournament." fair enough. I"ve bowled 7 PBA occasions in my life time (but only one due to the fact that I"ve obtained my card) and also have cashed in 4 of castle (did not cash in the one due to the fact that I joined). My girlfriend that ns bowl with has bowled in 9 events and cashed in one. So, the guy says that we would have to wait because that the official tournament director, that would be there in less than 10 minutes. We continue to wait, hoping for some kind of rule outline or other stipulating what the qualifications are for PBA members to bowl the 40 framework game.The main tournament director mirrors up and we ask for clarification that the rule. That was usually a "tell me the variety of tournaments you"ve bowled and how many you"ve cashed in and also I"ll think about it, comprise a dominance on the spot, and let you know if ns think you"re too great to key the tournament." So i tell him I"ve cashed 4 that 7 PBA events I"ve bowled and that I"ve only bowled one tournament since I"ve gotten my card and didn"t cash. He then thinks about it for a 2nd and he states "ehhhh, this is more of a fun tournament, us don"t desire pros comes in to destroy it for everyone." ... So then he asks my friend, who claims he"s cashing in one tournament the end of the 9 he"s bowled...1/9 is too much for them, too.Ok, we"re making a living turn off of bowling going 4/7 and also even 1/9.I"m not upset, I totally understand the rule, or lack there-of. Ns would similar to to watch this more outlined/INCLUDED in the rules next year and also not have actually it it is in a procedure whereby you phone call a number come a guy and also he identify if you"re "too good" and that we would make that "Not fun" for the other world bowling. A funny sidenote is that later on I educated him I just booked 210 last year, and he reveresed his decision on the spot and also said just I could bowl. This is another example the why I"m posting this. These people don"t even have their very own rules outlined and also they make up rules ~ above the spot.So, simply as I opened up with, consider this a warning if you"re plan on having actually a funny outing with some friend if you"ve obtained your PBA card.---------------------Ricky-Member the the St. Louis, Missouri USBC Adult RankingsMember the the PBA since 12/08MORE rate = LESS time to PANICCurrent Arsenal: Roto tight Rogue Cell, Roto grip Mars, Brunswick Rattler, Brunswick Wild Ride, Columbia 300 Rival, Brunswick Viz-A-Ball Cow (MOO!), Motiv SX-1, Brunswick power Groove, MoRich LevRG
