I just posted this in another thread, but figured it belonged here as well.

For starters, this was the most fun I've had at Nationals. Can't put my finger on exactly why. I hadn't bowled a single game since May 2018, so maybe it was just good to be back on the lanes. But I had a blast, and so did most of the team.

I got a last minute invitation to go, and even though I was sure I'd be rusty, I didn't hesitate to say yes. I put the two balls I still own on the spinner (a green Quantum and a blue Vibe), packed and hopped in the car for the quick four hour drive.

Team event seemed somewhat easy to me, after the first few frames. It broke down quickly, and consistently. There was plenty of free entry angle, but a definite out of bounds. I shot 549, with a clean 210 last game.

Doubles and singles played much tougher for all of us. Much more oil, that didn't break down nearly as quickly. We didn't execute a gameplan, and paid for it, with each game getting tougher. I shot 525 and 527 with a 208 last game that started with a four bagger.

I had 1601 for the tournament which is right at average for me (174 career average, and 175 average for last 27 games.) I think it will cash in standard division All-Events, if only for $20, and I also made enough profit in the brackets to buy a New Hammer Sauce on the way out. I loved the original and was excited to see a new on on display.

I'm pleased with my bowling considering I'd thrown exactly zero games in the previous 14 months.

I really like South Point and am looking forward to it returning in the future. But before that, its Reno next year! I'm looking forward to it already.
Nowadays, I open bowl practice and go to Nationals every year.

See you in Reno 2020!
