It is drilled with a benchmark layout for me so it is very controlled and mild throughout.

I really like it and have shot some really big scores with it already. I think its a great ball and I definitely am considering another one and drilling it a little different to give me an extra look in case I need one.

Good bowling lake,and SK, I bowled well again as far as the way it felt I know I am close to a break through. First game 171 opened 9th, and 10th both were 4 pins.

Second game 194 opened the 10th missed another 4 pin.

Third game 231 with another missed 4 pin in the seventh.

Hoping to get some practice in tomorrow night with a game or two of nothing but 4 pins they are in my head now have to get them out of there.

So far this season I surpassed my first goal of 180 average (186) and a clean series. So for the second half I want a 190 average with back to back clean series. The funny part is where I have been concentrating on the spare shooting my strikes have gone up considerably for me.

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame (Linked to BowlSK series sheet)

This wasn't a normal Wednesday for me in my real world, and, being a creature of habit, it showed in my bowling because I was fishing too much and didn't find my good look at the pocket until the last game.

Result: 152-137-232=521
Average (36 games): 184
Average for last 9 games: 174
Next week's AVG+1 score: 560

The team was all over the place tonight, as well, but John was well over his average in his last two games, Eileen was steady, and Patrick had a good first game. We only took one point, however.

Bowled my regular league at 8 tonight and subbed in a first-shift league in the same center.

As a sub: 160-170-162 = 492.
As a regular: 168-154-160 = 482.

I bowl with players who have to stand practically on top of the left gutter and swing out to around 15 at arrows to a breakpoint of 5 to keep the ball on the lane. I can't do that, I don't know how to do that and I don't even try to do that.

The only good thing about any of this is that I started to make my 10-pins and my 6-10s again. I hadn't made one of either in a month. I get down on myself very easily and cuss myself out when I get back to the settee (and sometimes I don't wait even that long).

People pat me on the back and tell me I need to lighten up and not ride myself so hard. Believe me, I'd love to do that. I still have the idea in the back of my head, though, that if I don't kick my own @ss, someone else will. That belief has been there since I was about 8 years old. When I bowled candlepin, my father indeed used to do that to me. (All the way through juniors and then I was a teammate of his for a year in a men's league right before heading off to college.)

I am no longer on speaking terms with him -- one reason why Thanksgiving is easily my least favorite holiday. Being away from any form of bowling for 10 years meant it had been a very long time since I'd done this sort of thing to myself, and I've forgotten how to deal with it. Definitely my physical game has issues, but if I don't get out of my own head first, I'll never make any progress.

Had a pretty good night, tonight. Started game 1 with the first 10. Then, a wiggling 10pin on the 11th ball left me with a 289. Followed that game with 225 and 236 for a 750 series. it's my 6th 700 of the year. Maybe, I'm finally coming back to where I was, years ago.

Ironically, the team lost the first game, and we won the next 2.

Sorry guys, this doesn't count in the VL.

I had my worst game of the league so far in the first game. But I found my stroke in the second game and finished with a decent series. 142-214-197=553. As a team we did well. Took all 8 points this week, and we're just 3 points out of first.

week 13 invitational scores: 192, 238, 208 for a 638 series. lost 2 of 3 in match play and team lost also. only half of the teams make money in this league. my team did not finish in the top half of the first round, and it does not appear we will make any money in the second round either. my streak of match play wins (6 weeks) came to and end tonight as well.

Well still not bowling but had an interesting night at the lanes, not like one's I've been reporting on. Once again we were bowling a high average team as in 5 people totaling a team average of over 1000 and use having under 900. I've had the same guy subbing for me since I found out about my eye. He told us as long as we needed him he would sub. When he finally walked into the center tonight he walked right past us to a pair of lanes several sets down. Just said hi and never mentioned he was subbing for someone else. So I go see if any subs are still available that they were announcing. Didn't see anyone at the desk but as I got back to my pair a guy walked up to me, I do know him but my team was a little hesitant about getting a sub but eventually said ok. He missed all of practice. Well he is a 239 average compared to my 196 and we still got 142 pins of handicap, the other team had a roster bowler taking the place of one of the top 5 with and he had an average 60 pins higher. My sub only shot a 158 for the first game not striking until the 9th frame and 3 opens before that. One was a 10 pin, one he took the 6 out of the 3-6-10 and the last was leaving the 7 on a 7-10. Next game was a 183. Still had issues carrying the 10 including borrowing a ball from another bowler plus another 7-10. Last game he finally got it going half way through a game with a ball that he couldn't get to work earlier. We lost the first game by 1, the second by 60something, got the third by less than 10 to win only one point on the night.
