USBC Open Championships in Reno, NV

Last week, my team and I traveled to Reno, Nev. to compete in the USBC Open Championships. My visit to Reno was pretty short, all in all. Prior to bowling in the tournament, a few of my team members and myself went over to Grand Sierra to bowl in the Bowlers Journal side tournament. The lanes were pretty difficult this year, as the shot played deep inside and it was very advantageous to have a lot of revs. I definitely struggled to find a good line and when I did hit the pocket, then I couldn’t carry very well. However, it was good practice.

Later that evening, we bowled the team event portion of the USBC Open Championships. Our team – Parkins’ O.C. Bowling Supply – didn’t fair too well, shooting 2808. I used my Eagle and Bank, shooting games of 198, 215 and 177 for a 590 series.

Then the next day, we bowled the doubles and singles portion of the tournament. In doubles, I bowled with Bryan Norton (Scott Norton’s brother) and we shot 1266. I played inside, using my Eagle and Shred-It and shot games of 226, 214 and 215 for a 655 series.

We then switched lanes and bowled singles. Our singles pair was pretty brutal, but I still managed to stay consistent playing deep inside, using my Eagle and shot 199, 236 and 210 for a 645 series. So for all events, I shot 1890.

Immediately after finishing doubles and singles, Drew and I left Reno and drove to Rohnert Park to bowl in the PBA Regional tournament that was going on that weekend up in wine country. Although the PBA Regional didn’t go too well for Drew or I, we still had a lot of fun enjoying the gorgeous scenery of wine country. Check out some of the photos.
