      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Bowling a Perfect Game- In 2 Minutes.

Recommended Posts

Dude watches a little Rob and Big I'd say. Third to last set of pins, that last pin took an odd looking fall.

Still, maybe it's easier in 2 minutes? Don't have to think about it and can replicate the throwing motion with less variation?

Cool video.

If I were a betting man I'd say fake the last few frames had a couple of pins fall oddly. There must have been help from the above and I don't mean "THE ONE ABOVE" I mean from a third party located in the back of the lanes above the pin rack. Harmless though none the less.

That dude can roll though no matter what anyone says. There were only two frames there that look like there was a little help possibly.

I can hear "The Dude" calling now from Los Ang-el-ace.

I agree, fake. the reason the camera follows the bowler is to alow the employe with the pin hook to get between the masking units (small gap) without being spotted. There is a cat walk that allows a person to run the length of the house just over the pin decks.

Bowling alley employee's are an odd breed....

man it was fun work though......

Fake, two shots are no where close. Used to work in a lane and yes if you work in a house you have lots of free time to play Bowling games. After hours we would have our own tourneys where we would start at 1 and go through all 24 lanes. Oil conditions change so much from lane to lane that to string strikes was almost impossible. And several of the employees had 300 games to their credit. Of course we also bowled with footballs, rolled balls through chairs and flung balls with towels always trying to come up with a better Trick shot... My specialty was bowling left handed after hours but bowled right handed in leagues. Did I mention that we would invite bar patrons to our after hours bowling!

Fake all the way, like said 2 shots for sure were fixed and a third a possibility. After working at 1 for 17 years part time and a 210+ average bowler, I can say I have never tried that trick. Other tricks yes, but not that one. It looks like he used house balls also. There was not much form, a few shots crossed over to the brooklyn side. I think only 3 shots in the pocket.

It didn't look like the lanes were blocked.

To me not that impressive if rigged.

G.C.

There's no way it's real. The pin action on several of the strikes is suspect. Plus that would be nearly impossible for anyone to do, much less a straight shot bowler. I've seen 2 real perfect games and both of them required a lot of skill and a little luck. That shows little skill, and more luck than a leprechaun and horseshoe combined.

    • No, but this is what I would get if I was there. 
    • Really? I told them I will Only Agree to one year if the discounts are for one year and no problem. About two years ago I did call Direct TV and they wouldn't throw a deal. So I canceled my service then left for the weekend. I came home called them and said dish didn't show up to put it in and asked if they wanted me back has a new customer or if I just needed to let dish install it. They flipped it back on and gave me the deal. You will never get the "deal" with the first person you talk to. You have to talk to at least 2 people and the second one always gives in. I could really care less which one I have, but learning the channel number lineup sucks big time. I had dish about 6yrs ago and what made me go to direct tv is I had my dish get out of line on the roof of my two story house. They were gonna charge me $50-$100 for a tech to come set it right so I'd get a signal. I left and went to direct....The games they play are stupid. 
    • Heard the teal started to move south from some friends fishing the Minnesota river. I hope some stuck around Princeton but I know there is some wood ducks around 
    • Dish Network is a little tufter to tune in. They use a skew to get both satellites that is why they are turned a little. I go through how much direct charges me every other year.  I just ask for someone in charge and they usually lower it to a satisfactory amount. Last time they lowered it to 52 something because I have AT&T phone so they cut it in half.        
    • That looks good. Don't pay no mind Dave to that instigator!!!
    • I am pretty much ready. Not sure where you guys are hunting but up here the weather looks really good. Cloudy, 50's, NW wind 5-10 MPH. Will be taking my son on his fist duck opener. I myself have not gone for many years so am actually quite excited for it. There are a few birds around so we should get a few. Will be hiking into a WPA that is a bit of a walk so crowds will not be an issue. Good chance we will have the pond to ourselves.
    • So, you're at Emma's for lunch?
    • Good luck folks!  
    • Yep, it's looking to be a warm one. I still have a bunch to get ready but i've got all day tomorrow to scout and prep.    Good Luck!
