Feb. 28 practice

In today’s practice session, I mostly continued work on my release, and I threw a few more shots that I was happy with. Something I tried to add to my “bag of tricks” today was the technique of “circling the heads,” as written about by Bill Hall (a Silver coach who is working the Showcase Lanes at the USBC Open Championships in Baton Rouge) in an article about lane play in the current Bowling This Month. This technique means you move your feet in, but your eyes out in an attempt to take advantage of the outside friction. I got a couple of strikes and a couple of 10 pin leaves early in the third game trying this before fatigue from the pace of my bowling had me throwing poorer shots.
