I guess I did forget to mention that Kevin's bowling balls did arrive on Thursday so he didn't miss out bowling in the Nationals but he did miss bowling in the 40frame game on Wednesday nite. If you are wondering how he did.............I would of course say Awesome but not as well as he usually bowls. Not only is it hard bowling with strangers but the lanes are always harder in a contest due to the oil on the lanes. So if a team works together you wear a path through the oil and make it easier to bowl strikes but in a situation like this where you have strangers all bowling their own way it just doesn't work. Plus you have to remember that Kevin just recovered from the torn cartilage in his ribs from that fall on the ice. He was not happy with his bowling and said "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" end of the story LOL! FYI this building was not a bowling alley....they actually build this all from scratch and you just can't imagine how big and impressive it is. I think there is like 70 lanes & they are all full. People come from everywhere to bowl and quite of few of the guys were from Canada.
Friday nite Kevin didn't bowl until 11:30pm and didn't get done until almost 2am. Last year I was lucky enuf to watch him from the comfort of our hotel on my computer since you can watch it live but this year that wasn't happening because in Vegas you pay $12/day to connect your computer in any hotel (guess they don't want you to stay in your room LOL). I also was actually able to take pictures on my computer too while he bowled so this year Kevin's dad did it for us as you can see from these 2 pictures.
Next year the competition will be in Reno which is actually one we went to once before. It's a gorgeous place so you never know we might be going back again! Last year it was in Albuquerque, New Mexico so that was someplace new for us and we enjoyed it immensely. Guess we will have to see if we have some "spare" time!
