Bowled in the Association Tourney today. Shot was the Scorpion. I like oil, so I was looking forward to this.
Started with Doubles, where my partner had real trouble on this pattern. I shot 639 and felt good about it. Used my best oiler ball, the Terminator.
Second set was Singles, the out of bounds was still there outside, as the oil held up. Switced to my XD, but quickly switched to my Victory Road. The VR held well for a game and a half. Then the oil broke down. I made a strange move to go back to my Terminator with success. Finished with 661.
After a half hour wait, we moved to the Team Lanes. These lanes already had 2 sets of 4-man Teams bowling on them, and they were trashed. Others who swung the ball had success on them. But, my power stroker sytle didn't like this condition. I just dove, and dove regardless where I stood, targeted, or changed my release. Shot 2 160 games using 3 different balls. I finally used my Hornet, which I use for really dry. It worked with a final 220 game.
So, I left with 1836 total pins for 7th in All Events. And, my 661 was good for 5th in Singles. Felt good about the results.
Course, the final tally isn't complete, as there were still plenty of bowlers still on the lanes. But, after 2 previous weekends, and today, I am in the top 10 of about 400 bowlers. Payout will go down to the top 25, based on the number of entrants.
Keeping my fingers crossed.
