first time ever playing in league tonight and im pretty happy with how i played scorewise, BUT i had WAAAAYYYYYYYYY too many open frames that it was disgusting. but overall a pretty good start to my league career.
1st 167 4 opens 5 strikes 2 strikes and 9 in the 10th to save this game from total disaster
2nd 170 x open x x x x open x open open ! if i could have converted 2 of these 4 opens i could have been over 200
3rd 156 4 opens only 3 strikes kinda disappointed with this one
league starting avg 164 smile

im going to be seeing a coach on sunday and hopefully next wednesday i will do better and break 200 and lessen my opens .

That sounds vaguely familiar....

Shot a 711 today for the first week. I bowled in the same league last year, but this time the league is on the other side of the house, and the shot is MUCH drier. Instead of playing 9 to 5 with my Copperhead, I'm playing 13 to 5/4 with my Smokin'. Probably not the best line, but it worked. I might try and ball up again and play further inside next week.

First game I had 99 in the fifth due to a couple single pin pick ups, then struck through the 9th. I got on the side of the ball in the 10th frame and it took off leaving me the 3-4-6-7-10 for a 208 game. The second game wasn't much different. Pretty much all strikes and nine spares, except for a 2-8 spare and a missed 10 pin. Finished out with a 224 game. Last game I started carrying my pocket shots. Went front 9, then dropped the ball for it to go a little high and leave a 4 pin for a 279 game. I hit the pocket 31 out of 33 shots. I love house shots, it's really a morale booster. Series total: 711. Hopefully I can jump up 5 pins from last year and finish with a 228 average. I think if I can stay focused every week it shouldn't be hard. House shots do make you lazy, though, so we'll see.

sharno, for only throwing a hook for a few weeks thats a good start. Keep working on it. Getting the spares down will get you where you want to be. Strikes will come more and more as you work and improve.

It's not uncommon to find other bowlers that you might know on this board. I've met up with a couple. Others have taken business trips here and we tried to connect.

But, being placed on the same team is a rarity.

That would be me. That spare ball made me suspect that you were from the boards. I watched the video you put and it definitely was you. I thought it was rare that we were bowling on the same pair in you video and my avatar. Then a week later, we're placed on the same team.
