Taku Lanes High Scores

(Week ending Sept.28) A highlight of last week’s bowling league competition was the spare picked up by Debbie Germain in TGIF League play on Friday. Germain left the 4, 6, 7, 10 split and picked it up. According to officials the applause was so loud you would have thought Germain bowled a 300 perfect game.


This is one of the hardest splits to put away. According to various professional bowlers it can be done, basically in three ways, and all are not executed to perfection on a regular basis. One way is to bowl the ball really hard and try to bounce the pins around at the back and get one of the pins (either the four, seven or the six, ten) to bounce out and get the other two pins. Or you slide either the six pin over or the four pin over to take out the other two pins. Most important, however, is to practice, practice, and practice.
