Curious if we still have any fellow Coloradans around, and if you've bowled the state tourney already? If so, how were the lanes? Curious to see what they have going on this year. I know last year the lanes played me like a fiddle, wanting to avoid that this year.

Well I showed up to bowl, for the most part, in two out of the three series... Doubles I shot a 221, 243, followed by a meager 182. Singles, my worst series of the weekend, shot a 181, 161, 177. We switch pairs during doubles and singles, and I just couldn't buy a strike, and missed a lot of 10 pins... Team I shot 245 (on pace for a 280 and opened the 10th), 223 (on pace for a 244 and went 10 pin - strike in the 10th), 194. Started leaving 10 pins in the 3rd game, and searching for carry to no avail. Not a terrible weekend I guess, but definitely not a great one either, lost my butt in brackets. Managed to average 203 for the entire weekend, though I came to the tourney with a 210 average.

On a sidenote, I did manage to pick up a split I've never converted! Picked up the 2-4-8-10 in doubles! LOL

I threw a hook at it. Hit the 2-4 with the ball, got the 2 to carry the 10 and 4 to carry the 8. Couldn't believe I got it, but was very happy I did.

I picked that up the same way on Tuesday. In fact, I left it in frame 1 and picked it up. Adjusted in frame 2 and left a 6-7. Picked it up. Adjusted back and left a 5-7 in Frame 3. Picked it up. And, that's bowling with 1-step.

So 3 split pickups in 3 frames, while bowling with the Old Guys pot games. They conceded the game right there.

It was a good day. Their Social Security checks just came in, and I got some.

That's too funny Dennis! Those nights make you wonder if you're going to turn it around, or possibly even shoot a clean 30. I can guarantee you I'd never pick up three splits in a row lol. Great job!
