There isn't really an easy way. What I usually do is try several different starting positions on the walk-through and then tinker with different angles until I find a good path.
All I have is my memory and my reputation as an honest person. It was no big deal, we just went there and bowled. I messed around and recorded my scores for attendance/grades [not score dependent]. I wasn't throwing really high scores and really low ones. Just consistent from low 200s to low 240s skewing to high 220s most of the time. Somewhere in the range of 7 strikes and 3 spares, rare open frames. Only explanation is; I'm left handed so I tread untrod ground, we rarely switched lanes, I'm sure the lane maintenance was minimal, and I just regularly hit the same spot time after time.
No way I'm pinning my entire reputation on so trivial and ancient a bit of information. I just wanted to express some nostalgia at fun times past, not stir up some cyber hornets' nest over something so stupid and incidental.
On the up side, Hootie now has something really juicy to roast me over were I so honored, however remote the chances I rate above the luminaries already enumerated, to still somehow rate in the pantheon of the 101.
