278, 278, 279...do you know hard it is to intentionally get a 9 count...never happens when you want it.

Game one first frame lined up 3 boards left of where i practiced at...don't know why i did the...left a 8 split got one, moved back to where i was suppose to be ran next 10 in a row, 9 count last ball, 278

Game 2 run the first 7 or 8 left a 4 pin, run the rest out until the last ball in the 10th 9 count, 278

Game 3 run first 5 pocket 9 pin then run them out on my last ball i moved left a touch and mean to pull it in a little, trying to leave the 4 pin but i set it out too far and carry the strike on the last ball for a 279

835 set...not bad

Not bad? Dang man, fantastic! I don't care what you average. Great series. I've only bowled over 270 twice in my life, and you did it for three games straight.

Awesome.

157 142 222 = 521

Last night was the last night of league. Averages ended last week so this week was just a double tournament and the 2 team roll off. After winning league last year, our team finished 3rd in the money just 5 points short of returning to the Roll Off. Injuries were our issue this year.

I figured it would be a good night to experiment with somethings before my new league begins this coming week. I worked on my release, timing and speed control. I had issues the first 2 games with trying to find a good line with all the carrydown we had. Inside and outside just seemed so flooded the first 15 frames of the series. Lots of light hits the first 2 games, but the 3rd game I got on and had 8 strikes and 4 spares for a 222 and my ball looked very good. Gonna rejuvinate my 2 balls, resurface and polish and get ready for my summer league!

171-213-184-181 with my new Storm Dimension, and then a 143 with my Tropical just for a change of pace (it really needs the oil taken out of it and refinished). If I roll the Dimension right (as opposed to chucking it down the lane) it hits like a ton of bricks. I've been working on my timing and release and have been tweaking it throughout the games, so the scores aren't always the greatest.

But I'll get there. Got spring league in a little less then two weeks, so I need to get settled into a groove again.

This was our last night of league. 170, 168, 208. I used the Track Freak for the first two games. The third game I switched to the Tropical Storm and still couldn't find anything...till I moved way right to 34 and shot at 10. the ball lazily skidded (skid! yay!) hit 10, went out to about 7 and then rolled back in. 5 in a row (first time I got more than a turkey this year), and a 9 spare to finish out. I don't want to play the "house shot swing" but I guess that's all that worked at the time;)

Bowled a 235 today in practice. Got the front 6 and on the 7th ball I lost balance. Almost instantly after it left my hand I said "Gonna leave a 5 pin". I guess I am happy because its my high game but..... the missed spare and the 5 pin still haunt me. Should have been at least 250. Last week had a chance to get a 600 series I went 201-213-139. It got really dry really fast. 553 series. That is slightly higher then my average. I go tomorrow for my banquet. Me and my partner took 1st in division 2. I bowled about 520 in city tournament he was like 490. The banquet is always fun because there is free pizza and free bowling.

Congrats NN on the new high game and don't fret. That 600 will come sooner or later.

I could use another one myself. I've only had three. Two of them came in practice, and one in league but they all came relatively close together. I thought they might start coming with more regularity but that just hasn't been the case.

I always manage to somehow mix a garbage game into my series. For example, this evening I went out and practiced. 182, 159, 192 for a 533. Go figure.

Really had a lesson on spend lanes, yesterday. Our normal Fri sfternoon followed a full morning of grammar school kids on an outing. I got there early as the kids were leaving. Apparently, there were 2 shifts of these kids from the local schools before we got there. I asked if we could change lanes, but was told that the second half of lanes had not even been oiled.

It was an adventure, to say the least. You'd roll 2 identical balls, and get completely different results. None of my equipment rolled with any consistency, so I switched to my spare ball in mid game 2. I even had trouble holding that too. As I ended up targeting straight up 5 and barely held the pocket. And, this ball is my straight ball, now getting 10-12 boards of hook.

Rolled straight 190's for each of 3 games, and only a double in each game. It was tough for all, as the high game on all lanes was 208.
