Well done Smooth, its a memory that I won't forget finally getting the 200.. As another poster mentioned, they begin to come a bit more often after the first, obviously your 247 Yee hah is an example of this....

The 220-230 area seems to be my 'hard to cross' point. I've had a couple 240's, but getting consistently above 200 is still difficult for me.

Same here BowlerBob. Once I am dialed in and focused and loose, I can easily get them.

Cool, ewn51. My highest series in league was a 594. I wish I can stay that consistent.

Nice job Lefty! Got my first 200 in the last week of my first year of full time league play (I was 34 at the time) whistle Being only 15, you are well on your way. Got a 12 year old at the center I bowl at that averages 190-200. Got to admit, it's fun to watch some of these kids bowl. Many of them have great form and will only get better. Makes me a little jealous that I started so late. rotfl

Cool. Honestly, it's never too late to start. People comment me on my smooth form and release all the time, but yet I still have room to improve. I am averaging about 170 in both high school and league, and this is my first year starting. I have come a long way. Next year, I am determined to go to state for high school!! No one can ever know how much love and passion I have for this sport. Oh yea, I always watch people and I love watching others that are better than me cause that's my motivation. Here's one scenario, me and this older guy were bowling together. he is like my coach and mentor type person, cause I practically know the whole bowling alley, they say I pretty much live there. So we start off striking in the first three frames, I kept my composure, and showed my sportsmanship. We both kept battling it out, strike after strike, until I choked. The ball ended up hitting my leg, and being a gutter, but I picked up my spare and shot a 244 to his 279. We threw the first 6 or 7 strikes. So I just wanted to share with you that, potential lies within us and we just have to believe in ourselves. Everyone knows that I love bowling, and I bowl pretty well. So yea, someday, whatever the future holds for me, I might become a PBA bowler, who knows. A bit long, but thanks for reading.
