Hello everyone.

How did I do tonight? Well I kind of outdid my previous top 5 scores because the lane conditions were perfect.
My first game I had to get warmed up and I got a 140, so it wasnt that great. However, that was (sadly) my average.
The second game came out really great and I rolled a 5-bagger and came up with a 195 (the 5 bagger was frames 6-10 so I came for a late finish. )
My third game was piddly 139, but that was the worst one.
My fourth game was another 190, 191 total. I kept nailing my spares and doing a good job.

I followed that up with a 211 which is my best score ever. I got a couple of turkeys, but (since Im left handed) the main thing was picking up my 2,4,6 and any combination of those 3 spares. My lane tonight was extremely dry which gave my ball too much hook. Since I forgot how to roll straight, I had to really aim for a close shave with the left gutter to have a chance. But I figured it out towards the end of the game before that and picked them all up that game.

I dont remember the last 2 games scores but I know that they werent below 160.

My previous top 3 games were 203, 201, and 186, but now they are all 200s. ^^

Mikkial, if the last time you were 60 under and can't remember the line, find a better one. Best of luck .

Welcome Amanda. Glad you jumped right in. Don't worry if you see some bigger scores. We are all still learning this game.

Nice bowling Mikkial and Amanda.

I really wish I could be at the tryouts with you Mik but I am in the process of buying a new car and the $250 fee to tryout was just more than I was willing to spend because of it.

Always next year!

I usually practice on Sunday mornings without the scorer on. I decided to keep score for a couple of games this past Sunday and ended up shooting a 299 the last game. I left a four pin on my last ball which I thought was a good hit. Actually, I'm glad I didn't get the 300 because it was on one lane and it was practice and I rather save the occasion for a sanctioned league. It would have been a bittersweet 300 for sure.


Coincidently, during league last night I happened to catch a guy I know throwing his last ball for a 300 game. As soon as it got off his hand I knew he had it. Nice series as well - 786 I beleive. After such a good practice on Sunday, I thought maybe I was going to have a hot night as well but ended up slightly under average: 211-203-201=615. - Bowling is just full of surprises.

THE INFAMOUS 299!!!

Well done though.

Tonight (I go bowling Tue. and Wed. nights) I didnt roll any special high games but I kept my average well above normal. My first 2 games were 160s, and then a 140. The rest were high games until the 10th or 11th game.
Despite the fact I didnt get anything about 160 I was still really happy because I know that I can consistently bowl a 160 now, Ive just got to keep staying focused, yet relaxed.

We had our league meeting tonight. I wasn't going to make it because softball playoffs were supposed to start tonight but due to Chicago weather the game got cancelled. The rules are pretty much the same as last year (I will post them if anyone wants them). The house charged us $1 a game so I bowled 3 games. After basically not bowling since Memorial Day, I figured I would throw a few. I only took my Hy-Road and Cell. I used my Hy-Road for 2 games and my Cell for the last. I shot 222 for the first game (8 strikes and a 4-7-10 open). Second game I shot 225 with 6 strikes (clean). Last game I shot 215 with 5 strikes (clean). So 662 with 1 open. Not too shabby with not using my spare ball. When I was at Nationals, I found that my swing plane was off with my spare ball. I was actually pretty comfortable throwing my equipment straight. I basically took my hand and instead of starting out inside of the ball and the ball resting on my thigh, I suitcase it from the start and use basically my same release. I plan on sticking with it even when I get a new spare ball (Natural). Not a bad way to start.

Cheers!!!
