Yeah, wronghander, you and your partner definitely had it on the semifinal pair, and I think I mentioned to you that the Baker 300 award was available had you been able to get all 12 in that 287 (single pin in first frame, but, if I remember, it was a corner pin that could have carried). Glad I was there for it. smile

Yes you did mention that. My partner left a 10 pin in the first frame, then I messed up the last shot for a 7 count.

Bowled the local NAT tournament today at my home house. Was really happy with my qualifying scores of 237,237,227,279 (ringing 7 in the 2nd, and flat 7 in the 12th in the last game). Had to be pretty accurate as there was not much miss room to the left. This was good enough for me to lead the tournament going into match play. This is by far the best series I've shot in a tournament so to average 245 for qualifying and hang with the power players was very encouraging.

Unfortunately went up against a really good bowler in the first round and he shot 268 against me. Was on that same pair to start the tournament and the lanes had changed, which I didn't pick up on until having an early split (since I had to use my practice to warm up again). Couldn't make the right adjustments and finished with 184 but the match was over quite early. My doubles partner from last week bowled against him next and lost 254-233. Thought this guy was going to win the tournament but he lost in the semifinals to the eventual champion.

So another cash (albeit a small one) but the way I look at it anytime you get paid to bowl it's a good day. Just need to figure out how to bowl better after transition. It does happen on the left side, albeit not as much as the right. This was my downfall in my PBA league last week as well.
