So, bowled in my second ever regular handicap tournament yesterday. I've bowled in some other no taps, and a 3 6 9, cashed in 2 of those 3. However, I missed the cut in my last handicap tourney with some decent, but not spectacular bowling.

Last Tuesday, in my league outing, I bowled 170s 160s 125. Had 13 strikes, 4 spares, and 14 opens. Went out Saturday to the place that was holding the tournament. First game, I shot 10 pins on my first ball and strike ball on the second. 2nd game, 7 pins on my first ball, strike ball on the second. 3rd game, I just played for score. 4th and 5th, I used my other 2 balls to find a read on where I might be playing if I have to change lines. Also got my equipment refinished:

AMF VP2 - 4000 abralon
Big One - 2000 abralon, polished
Zone - 1000 abralon

Come Sunday, I get up nice and early to get there for the first squad, where 1 in 4 make it to the finals instead of 1 in 5. I get there at 10:10, giving myself plenty of time to prepare for the 10:30 start, and... it started at 10. Head to Lowe's to pick up some paint, and come back for the 11:30 squad. Turned out there were 6 in the first squad, so only 1 made it. 2nd squad ended up only had 4 bowlers (as did the 3rd), so I was better off waiting.

Shot is the THS for this house, I usually score very well here. Come out of the gate with a 216. I made a couple bad shots, but never really missed the pocket. Kept it clean. Move a pair, 257. Move a pair, 256. My previous best series was a 639, and I just beat it by 90 pins. Add my 33 pins handicap per game, for an 828. Needless to say, I made the cut.

Went home for lunch, got back for finals at 2:30. I got a bye into the championship round, being the high qualifier. The semifinal ended up at something 260-180. Took a couple practice shots on the final pair and I was really deep. I had started the day standing with my left foot on 35 - by now, I was a good 10 boards further in, using the VP2. Each shot, I just got up, did my pre shot routine, and told myself "1 shot, 1 at a time. Relax and trust it" And I did just that. Had the front 4 or 5 or 6 before I let one outside a little early, so it came back weak, leaving a 10. I had one pulled shot that went brooklyn, but other than that, I didn't miss the pocket (all day). Won the final 267 - 190something.

My last 3 games (257 256 267) were a 790. It's so great to finally put together the scores I know I'm capable of.

Also, the only spare I missed all tournament was shooting a 10 pin on the 12th ball of the last game, so I can forgive myself a lapse of concentration there.

Now I just need to hit up all the handicap tourneys I can before I get re-rated smile
