    Lane certification process
    Lane Certification Process and HOF)

    • Completion of Lane Certification Process needs to be done before any Warm-Up or Practice Sessions begin –

      • Need copy of Lane Maintenance Pattern Information to reference for process

      • One 50-foot or longer tape measure

      • One dry hand towel

        (a stop watch or portable clock will also be needed during event)

    Lane Certification (con’t) and HOF)

    • Perform overview of Facility for verification

      • Normal facility requirements (USBC Certified Facility or other?)

      • Safety Concerns (defined playing areas, spectator areas, obstructions)

      • Equipment Functions Properly (pinsetters, foul lights, scoring system)


    Lane certification con t1

    Perform overview of Facility for verification and HOF)

    Normal facility requirements for play

    Is Facility a United State Bowling Congress (USBC) Certified facility?

    If not USBC Certified, have all teams been notified of this prior to travel for competition?

    If not, do all teams agree to use facility “as is” ?

    Safety Concerns (must be resolved before play occurs)

    Defined playing areas

    Defined spectator areas

    Obvious physical obstructions that would hinder play

    Equipment Functions Properly

    Pinsetters (and on-site facility attendant to repair mechanical problems)

    foul lights working (or foul line Official present)

    scoring system (automated preferred, manual may be used if necessary)

    Lane Certification (con’t)


    Lane certification con t2
    Lane Certification (con’t) and HOF)

    • Visually inspect lane

      • Foul Lights are ON

      • No Deformities

      • Clean Playing Surface

    • Check Pattern Length

      • Tape Measure used

      • Measure from Foul Line to End of Pattern Length (Final distance, not oil run)

      • Verify Length of Pattern = (between 34’ and 44’)


    Lane certification con t3

    Visually inspect the lane surface and approach and HOF)

    Foul Lights are turned ON for all lanes

    No Deformities in lane surface or approach

    Clean Playing Surface (no dirt, tacky or slick areas)

    Look to ensure all lanes have been conditioned

    go to other end of lane near pins – at approx. half way down lane, start looking for a line which identifies where oil / conditioner application was stopped – area with oil will look shiny; area without will have a dull, fuzzy or hazy appearance – this is the end of the pattern =

    Do all the lanes look the same regarding pattern distance?

    Lane Certification (con’t)



    Lane certification con t5
    Lane Certification (con’t) and HOF)

    • Check Oil Application

      • Complete Finger Smear Test

        • Check at 3 distances -

          • Arrows (15 ft)

          • 5-10 ft From Oil Line

          • Final Pattern Distance

      • Was oil (conditioner) present on all boards from gutter to center of lane? (Yes or No)

        (Even light amounts of oil are ok)


    Lane certification con t6

    Check Oil Application on all Boards and HOF)

    Complete a Basic Finger Smear Test –

    Step 1:Kneel down beside lane near gutter; put middle and index finger together and touch the lane with fingertips (DO NOT step out onto lane to complete step 2 – lean out over lane area)

    Step 2:Put fingers on lane at board closest to gutter (#1 board); lightly push your fingers across the boards of the lane toward middle of lane (#20 board) to see if oil / conditioner is applied – applied oil / conditioner will be wet or slick to touch; dry area will be dull, squeaky, fingers will move slower

    Step 3: Check opposite side of lane, same distance (WIPE OFF FINGERS BEFORE NEXT TEST)

    Check at 3 distances – (ALWAYS DO TEST FROM BOARD 1 TO 20, NEVER OPPOSITE)

    At the Arrows (15 ft)

    At 5-10 ft From Oil Line (between arrows & oil line)

    At the Final Pattern Distance

    Was oil (conditioner) present on all boards from gutter to center of lane?

    (YES OR NO)

    *USE YOUR EYES TO LOOK AT AREA WHERE FINGERS WERE PUSHED ACROSS LANE – THE AREA WHERE OIL / CONDITIONER IS APPLIED WILL SHOW VERY LIGHT TO VERY NOTICABLE SMUG MARKS –

    * EVEN VERY LIGHT AMOUNTS OF OIL ARE OK AND WILL PRESENT A “SMEARED LOOK; DRY BOARDS WILL NOT SHOW ANY SMEARING OR RESIDUE ON BOARDS -
