J. Brown, if you feel you threw a good shot and got a strike but it wasn't "perfect" and you feel the need to move, move. There is a reason why the "HARRY" hasn't shot a 300 game yet, if you throw every shot the same way in the same spot on average you can get 7 strikes, then its about time to leave a 4 pin.

In my "serious league" which is 3 handed and 1/1/1/2 point structure (20 points total) we won the first round, then the other night, I start by whiffing a 7, then chopping a 3,9. I came back for a 206, then a 178 plagued by bad timing, then in the third I finished with a 5 bagger for a 223. I gave my opposite 25 pins and he beat me with a 156, 192, 222 We only took 6 points despite our anchor bowler shooting a 300 in the 1st game.

So I take a lesson and we work on "waiting for the ball" at the line rather then a tendancy I have to pull the ball through. Practiced the next day with my wife. 2nd game I shoot 290 and 3rd 254.

I bowled 108 130 129. My thumb is [censored] me off so much. It swells and I can't get out of the ball consistent. I am getting the changeable inserts on Tuesday I hope.

After my great series last week this week kinda fell apart. Started the first and second games with 4 opens apiece, and just couldn't get comfortable anywhere. I think it's a problem with the release again. 149-140-142

Well that's why i didn't move it was a perfect pocket hit. I thought the wobble i seen was from a spot of dry that had just showed up and wouldn't be to much of a problem. I've only been bowling seriously for 3 years so moving around and knowing when to move i'm still learning. Although i do need to start listening to my gut, i've messed up 4 700's this year and now 2 300 cause i don't listen to myself. Although all that has happened within the last 5 weeks at 2 different houses scoring that high and still thinking about where to move is still very new to me.

Got another 190 using helicopter today (18 mph). I'll get that 600 series next year!

During that game, used my Monster for the non-ten-pin spares, with hook (just for fun). Stood on 35 and sent it over to the 1 board to pick up the 7 pin! A lovely shot - 39 boards of hook, baby!!! (and not on a dry lane)

New to these lanes. I like 'em - wet in the front and dry in the back. Crosley in Vancouver. Bowled with my wife again.

Was a good bowling weekend for me and the family. One of my kids got his first 400 series on his Saturday morning league. Apparently the key to success for him is to have broken glasses and me not be there.... I was up getting a ball drilled and ended up actually working for a while LOL

Sunday night mixed league the GF shoots over average by about 30 pins and I finally breakout with my first 700 of the season shooting 233-256-215 for a 704.

I could have and should have shot better, but what can you do right? I was clean thru the first two games, but started the 3rd game off with 4 bad (flat) shots in frames 1-4 and missed two makable spares. Thankfully though I was able to put things back together and finish the game strong.

So overall the bowling has been good for me. The average should be up to 195.51 after this week and I'm currently the most improved at +13.36 I've got the mental portion of my game pretty much under control and I'm scoring well!

I also won the free turkey for our pair last night so I'm not hungry either LOL

Bowled a few practice games getting used to the new Natural I just picked up on Saturday. Its definitely going to take some getting used to the very slow and exaggerated arc it takes to the pins but it should work great on dry lanes. Not very many balls can you throw standing 10 looking 2 with a regular release (350 revs) and have it hold line to the pocket.

Didn't keep score but it was a well schooled self lesson.

The most strange night I've had in a long time. Took the VG down to 2000 abralon, left it dull. Was able to use it all three games and only move 2 boards from where I started the night. Shot a 696.

I'm still confused?
