In my first winter league winter 07-08 My goal was to end with a 140 avg. I ended with a 136. second league winter 08-09 goal was 150 avg. I ended with a 148. third league summer 09 goal was 155. I ended with 157. Tonight is the first night of winter league 09-10 my goal is 170 I really think i can do it. Its all in the single pin spares. I'm getting more consistant with them. wish me luck.

I hope you have a year where you exceed all your goals. Sometimes making one key improvement can have a tremendous effect on your game. Pay special attention to whatever you struggle the most with, and you may be surprised with the results.

Good start kkeys,
Spares are extremely important in upping your game. Picking up just one more a game will have a positive effect on your average.

My spare game right now is killing me. I am still missing some pretty easy spares...and if I keep it up I'll never reach my goal of averaging at least 195 this year.

The biggest thing for you to remember is to temper your expectations on an every night basis. If you miss an easy spare to start, don't panic. If you have an under average night, no big deal, just remember that you could have an over average night (or game) in the next outing. Keep your head on straight and focus on throwing a good ball each frame and the scores should come.

Good advice sk8,
Thats exactly my frame of mind this year. Don't flip out about a bad shot or a missed spare,...stay positive and run it down the next time.
