Thanks Joe. Unfortunately, I didn't have much more luck.

The fresh Doubles and Singles pattern starts, in my opinion, easier than the team event. But that didn't make it easy. In doubles, I shot 153, 197 (clean), and 163 for a 513. I had a 7-10 in the 9th of the last game, so I thought I was on an upward trend, and I may at least have a decent series.

But then I started singles with three opens and never was able to regain focus after that point. I shot 138, 163, 162 for a miserable 463 and 1470 All-Events.

I wasn't expecting to shoot huge. My goal, for knowing how tough the patterns were was 1620 (a 180 average.) I came up way short. It was a combination of a lot of factors. I hadn't gotten a good night sleep in a few days, we were bowling the late squad both days, the lanes were tougher than I expected, I only threw two doubles in the tournament, and I had no good luck. I didn't trip a single 4 pin, or carry a single brooklyn shot, or crumble any of the splits I left.

Bad bowling. But NOT a bad time or bad experience.

El Paso was nice. The Convention Center and the built bowling facility was gorgeous. The staff (with the exception of the booth guys) was helpful, courteous, and energetic. The food was great. The weather was great. Altogether it was a great experience and I'm looking forward to Reno 2016.

And Joe, you're absolutely right; its hard to fathom how Matt shot what he did on those lanes. If the tournament staff wanted to give me an additional three games to catch McNiel I'd need to shoot 756.
Nowadays, I open bowl practice and go to Nationals every year.

See you in Reno 2020!
