CURRENT STANDINGS

**************************************************

July - August 2018:  Annual Center Certification

 

Your Local Association was very busy during the months of July and August conducting Center Certification at 

all the bowling houses (Bowlero Milpitas, Bowlero San Jose, 4th Street Bowl, Gilroy Bowl, Homestead Bowl, Morgan Hill Bowl, and San Jose State University) located within our Association with a target completion date of 08/31/2018.  I am pleased to report that your Local Association completed this task on time!    

This year the topography measurements will require a minimum of five (5) areas on the lane - a measurement on each major synthetic lane panel.  Prior to this there were only three measurements per wooden lane for crosswise tilts and crown/depressions since they are resurfaced every few years.

The measurements consist of the following: 

 

  • In the PITS:  Kickback-To-Kickback; Crosswise Tilt; Lengthwise Tilt; and Gutter Depth

  • On the LANES:  Topography Measurements; Crosswise Tilt; Foul Light Check

Below are 2 videos of the measurements taken during the lane certification:

  • Jeff Evenson performing the various measurements in the PITS at Morgan Hill Bowl on 08/26/2018

  • Tom Elliott performing the measurements on the lanes at Morgan Hill Bowl on 08/26/2018
