Started my summer league tonight. Just the one league for me this summer and no sport league this year due to my work schedule. But my THS league is an improvement over the one that I've been doing the last four summers. Different house and much better competition and prize money. Also bowling with a new team that I met in my Sunday night league and that I plan on going to nationals with next year.
Goal is to average 230 or better and hopefully shoot an 800 series. There are a few heavy hitters in this league that I look forward to competing with for high average. Got started with 212+212+275=699. Actually took out my 16# Cyclone for this which
I put some surface on to tame the backend reaction and it seemed to work out pretty well. Have to keep it pretty straight up the lane though, did get a couple of washouts on outside misses (which would be big 4s or greek churches with shiny balls in this house). Had the front 8 in game 3 though but in the 9th frame moved 1&1 right after a tripped 6 in the 7th and ended up going light and leaving a 3,6 to end my run. Struck in the 10th & 11th but a miss inside for a light 7 left me 1 pin shy of the 700. I'll take it.
High Game: 300 (5)
High Series: 803
