*Lane machines incorporate
transfer brush technology with a “Drop Brush” feature. The pattern numbers can
be loaded into transfer roller machines as is.
*The lanes will be oiled
before every squad in 2013.
*There will be six bowlers on each pair of lanes for doubles and singles, and
all six games will be bowled on that pair. Bowlers will not switch lanes
between doubles and singles as in the past.
*The doubles and singles lane condition also will be used at the 2013 Storm Bowlers Journal Championships presented by USBC.
