   Ed's Outlook

  The Professional Bowling Association (PBA) Network, already the sport's most comprehensive communications tool, has expanded with a software update that allows PBA's Regional Managers to post real time game-by-game results on for all regional tournaments.
  The improved Live Scoring feature will enable fans to follow tournaments in the PBA's East, South, Central, Midwest, Southwest, West and Northwest Regions as they happen.
  The new PBA Network addition expands the PBA's reach into mainstream media, social media and digital platforms that provide PBA fans around the world with a wide variety of media outlets to access PBA news, video, interviews and more. 
  Bowling Tip
  By Mike Luongo

  All bowlers like to bowl three strikes in a row.
  When trying to bowl several strikes in a row you must be dedicated to being the best bowler you can be and that involves lots of practice.
  Your ball and other equipment may have to change with your skills so be prepared to evolve  in any way possible.
  Being able to assess your own ball and game is also very important to becoming a better bowler.
  Bowling three strikes in a row is key to maximizing your score.
  You must practice so that you can learn to read the ball and then you can change the pattern of standing in the same spot.
  When thinking about buying a new ball think twice about this as your present ball may be trying to tell you that is is you and and not your ball that needs adjusting.
  Using your ball to your advantage is really the key to learning to bowl strikes and practicing with the lane oil and surface materials.
