This will be your one stop shop for information and experiences related to the USBC nationals 2012. Share what date you are bowling, what you see in practice at your home leagues, what equipment works and doesn't, and any other questions or comments.

For reference:

Podcast with Mo Pinel in regards to lane play, equipment and strategy: http://above180.com/mo-pinel-on-why-you ... -usbc-open

Jeff Richgels' observations: http://host.madison.com/sports/recreati ... 3ce6c.html

Bill Hall's observations: http://above180.com/bill-hall-has-the-o ... -usbc-open

I'll add useful materials to this first post, and this thread will remain stuck until the completion of the tournament.

Best of luck as you bowl, and lets bring home an eagle for the MOTIVnation!

April 26 and 27. First time ever going to Nationals so this is going to be very fun and a good experience. Still have state tournament to do next weekend so bowling on some harder conditions will definitely help get my feet wet.

As far as equipment, Here's what looks like I will bring and have by then:
716T
505T
GT1
QZ2 Backdraft - will try a dull surface instead of polished
QZ2 - replacing my 505C
RX1 Silver

Might add a 14lb. Raptor Attack by April to replace my 15lb. GT1.

Looking forward to another trip the the USBC Open. The Linds/Cedervale team bowls April 15-16. Not 100% sure what to think of the pattern. Kind of looks like the out might not be to bad. Though I think this is kind of an illusion. I would love for it to be on the gutter though. Have not had the time practice on the patterns as of yet. Thinking the Motiv stuff in my bag will fit well though.

Raptor
2 Thrash
Sigma
Primal
Backdraft

Bowling Jun 1 & 2. Looking forward to the new set up. I got a busy scheduled ahead. Finishing traveling league in the upcoming weekends. City and state tournament during march and april. Playoff for traveling in may, then heading to Baton Rouge, LA.

I will bring my (2) Primal Impulse, Sigma, both of my QZ 1 R/P, RECON Silver and my new Storm Frantic. Also, bringing my 900 Global Eagle which perform great during state tournament last year. Looking forward to add the new Crossroad from storm.

i talked to a couple guys that just got back from Nationals. they both struggled bad. They said the lanes hooked a lot but outside 5 board was OB and you really need to go straight at your spares. They also put some time on the practice lanes there but said the actual nationals shot was way different than the practice lanes they spent 200 bucks on. The one guy wound up scoring best with regular urethane. they both said to leave all the real strong stuff at home. That sounds very much like the normal nationals shot to me.
