    Summary l.jpg
    Summary scoring level of bowling

    • History has proven that nearly ever time ABC has attempted to adjust a scoring pace it has actually gone in the reverse of the intended direction. The following pages will prove that.

      • In 1913 they got it right

        • Banning the Dodo ball moved scoring from 1:2000 to 1:4400. HORRAY!!!

    Summary44 l.jpg
    Summary scoring level of bowling

    • 1988

      • Limited distance dressing 24 feet edge to edge scoring improves to a new new record high 1:211.

    • 1990/91

      • 2 piece balls enter the market. New record scoring 1:162 lanes still at 24 feet.

      • System of bowling limited distance 24 feet and 3 units of oil minimum. Scoring at 1:143. The shorter the oil the higher the scores. Since the inception of the System of Bowling the scores have GONE UP from 1:380 to 1:99

      • 1992/93

        • 3 unit rule only, any distance ok.

        • Resin balls introduced

        • DBA lanewalker introduced.

    Summary scoring level of bowling

    • 1999

      • Kegel develops oil with suspended solids

      • Scoring goes to 1:47. first decrease in 14 years.

    • As you can clearly see that before ABC tried to “FIX THE GAME” we were at a scoring pace equivalent to the 1930 ( you remember those technically advance 30’s don’t you) 1:380 now that they have repaired it we are at 1:22.

    • They are about to venture on a second attempt to fix the game and based on their first attempt and if their track record hold true they can just hand out the award rings with the sanction cards because 1:22 is not that far off from 1:1…..Just think we were at 1:788 at the start of the 1980’s.
