The unusually mild weather has probably contributed to the high scoring in most of the area bowling centers. The middle and late sections of the fall bowling seasons normally have the highest scoring performance resulting from many factors. In my opinion the most important variable in bowling is the effect that your team and your opponents have in the changes to the lane oil conditions. By the middle part of the season, many bowlers have learned what ball and what line works best by watching their own team members reactions during their best scoring. That information along with consistent lane conditioning produces the best results.
Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!
