Well, not a summer, league, but my State Tournament.
They had a tough pattern down. This was the fourth weekend of the tournaments, and reports for the first few weeks was that it was very difficult/bordering on as tough as nationals.
I didn't think it was that tough, but very challenging indeed.
I shot 534 for Team, 516 in Doubles, and 591 in Singles for a 1641 All Events. Ouch. The worst ouch was in warm-ups prior to D/S I smacked my ankle very very hard with my ball. I thought my day was over before it started, but I bowled on. Now that I'm home its turning a pit purple and swelling.
The highlight was finishing with 215 and 231 clean. They were so tough, that was the best I could muster. I doubt anybody in my group will cash in anything, but we might have a chance in Team.
That might be the last bowling I do until fall leagues start up again in late August. I'm going from one of the worst bowling alleys in the country, to a very nice, mom n pop run 16 lane center with good scores. I plan to average over 220 and finally be someplace where an 800 is possible.
Nowadays, I open bowl practice and go to Nationals every year.
