Well... finished the summer with a 204 average. 1st game average 207, 2nd 202, 3rd 203. Not too bad I guess, still plenty of room for improvement though!

Made a good ball change late in the first game from my Vertigo to my Anarchy, struck on something like 20 of my last 25 shots. Team split, so we need to win one game next week to win the league. Also broke the bank last night for $195, so add that to the payoff next week, and it was a good night. Picked up a few percentage points on my avg, so it's at 238.97 with one week to go.

Nice job as well.

A 193+180+193=566 for this mere mortal tonight. First game I opened with a strike and then left the 2,4,6,10 after going right thru the face. Cut the 2,4 and the 2 went over and took out the 6, but the 10 remained. Oh well. Kept it clean the rest of game 1 and doubled in the 10th for the 193.

Second game I an open in the 2nd and made up for it with a double. Thought I was going to break 200 but had two lousy opens in the 8th & 9th. Had to convert a 1,2,4,9 in the 10th and fill it with 9 just to get to 180. Last game I was clean but with no double strikes so could only match my first game score.

Our team took all 8 points, mostly thanks to my teammates shooting 698 and 658 respectively. We finished first in our division and bowl the other division winner for the title next week. It'll be 3 games with total pinfall determining the winner. Can't wait.

Horrible Night

They redid the approach and it was tacky as heck... Not only was I sticking all night pulling or dropping the ball, I fell on my back and twisted my ankle too...

I should have taken a blind, we would have won 3 games and taken the wood instead of losing three games and tying one...

177+156+178=511, pre-bowled for next week. Dissapointing.
181+178+199=558, had trouble making strikes all night. Final game was clean. I finished with a 179 average, above my goal of 175. I had 3 clean games, a 600, and 11 200-games.

I have two weeks off until I start my work league. Last year, the high average was 175 and mine was 169. I feel confident about making a run for it this year.

I switched to the 3-6-9 method for making left-side spares and it has been pretty reliable. I also added different hand positions to my repitoire. I started the season with a strong cupped wrist across the 10-board to break at the 7 and ended with a weaker cup and tight pointer & pinky hand position thrown down the 5.

Awesome! I hope your scores carry over into the VL. It's unlikely we'll be on the same team, but it will make for some good competition.

Hope so- summer league avg is probably inflated by about 10 pins or so. Not sure why, but it's just easier in there in the summer.

Summer league officially over. Team got swept tonight, had a 6 point lead going in, fell to second. Shot 267-236-267-770, finished at 240.2, and ended up missing one seven pin all summer (42 games). The one I missed was week 1, game 1, frame 1. I had 2 games under 200 all summer, and they were in the same week. I also shot 700 12 times out of 14.
Bring on the winter (and V!) leagues!

182+156+162=500 to finish the summer. Disgusting. Had one double all night and too many splits. I guess my highlight of the night was converting a 5-10 split in the 3rd game.

Overall though not a bad summer. Went in with the goal of having a 180 average and I got there. Also our team won the league which I was not expecting at all so will definitely take that.

Onto the fall league now.

Last Week Of Summer

A very forgettable summer ending, the approach is still sticking thanks to the resurface and winter is beginning next week... Good to have higher handicap I guess...
