WORLD SERIES “ARENA” TO INTRODUCE STUB LANE FOR PRACTICE
The special Brunswick bowling lane installation in South Point Exhibition Hall A in Las Vegas that will house the ESPN-televised finals of all six GEICO PBA World Series of Bowling IV events will include a change this year with the introduction of a stub lane for use in practice between stepladder matches, PBA Commissioner Tom Clark has announced.
In addition to the two lanes that will be used for the actual competition, Clark said the shortened lane will be built in an off-camera area by the Brunswick crew….
“I want everyone to understand how important the integrity of the competition is to us,” he added. “There are enough other situations that are not ideal when you involve television, such as moving to an arena instead of being in the bowling center where qualifying was held. Our goal is to manage what we can in the interest of fairness and integrity; the addition of the stub lane is a significant step in accomplishing that goal.”
