Roll off was this week for my Wednesday league- we came in as the top seed, and the team handicap format is 85% of the difference in the teams' averages. We had the highest team average, so we gave everyone else pins. We gave the 2 seed 36/game, the 3 seed 20/game, and the 4 seed 89/game.
We shot 944 the first game, which was 27 pins behind the leader (2 seed)
922 the second game, cutting the 2 seed's lead down to 9.
908 the third game, and ended up coming up 22 pins short.
We bowled this across 12 lanes, changing lanes after each game. All 12 lanes were freshly oiled with the house shot. We got 10 minutes of practice, and could practice on any of the 12. All 6 lanes I practiced on played EXACTLY the same.
Shot 266-287-278-831, but still ended up losing. Oh, well. I had a season that I'll probably never be able to improve upon. One more rolloff next Thursday, and that will be the end of the season.

Nice shooting Fin09.

Finished up our league last night with position round. We were sitting mid pack which isn't unexpected. Only took 3 last night so we will drop a few more places.

Had a good night and was nice and consistent all night. First game started out with a 10 pin leave, then a 4 bagger, a high 8 count leave, a high 7 count leave and then sheet for a 265. Second game started out with the first 3, then alternated 9 counts and strikes for a 237. Third game started out front 4 and then ran off 4 9 counts in a row(4 pin and 10 pin alternating lanes), made slight adjustment each time on each lane and finished with 236 for a nice 738 series.

Felt good all night and hit my mark. My first completely clean series in recent memory. I almost always have some sort of split(with my luck it is typically a 7-10 pocket).

Felt good to end the season on a high note. Now onto some coaching over the summer and see what happens next fall.

Thanks- yes, 4 man teams. I ended up with 2 clean nights- the rolloff on Wednesday, and a 236-216-214-666 on Thursday. Obviously threw at a lot more spares Thursday.
