I've been taking the summer off from leagues for 4 years now, but I practice every week since I don't practice much at all during the season. I'm excited for the season for a silly reason, my center is in the middle of getting all new furniture and a general renovation of the bowler settee area. I've bowled there for 23 years and lots of seats had large holes in them. My personal favorite repair for the holes was when they cut up old pit carpet from the AMF pinspotters and glued the pieces on top of the seats to cover the holes. I'll get to see the progress in person today when I go practice. Other than that, my whole team is coming back, which is great because we had a fun, successful season last year.

Anxious for the season to start. I planned the Summer getting fixed. Mainly, getting operations out of the way so I can bowl. My physical ability is about 85%, but I am going ahead.

I plan to start bowling, only taking 1-step approach, and gradually increase that. But, I will take my time and not force it. Can't do any worse then my 15 pin drop in average from last year. But, I certainly hope I can finish the year, which I couldn't do last year.

My teams are supportive, and will be patient for my return to normal. Good to have friends to bowl with.

Monday is a revamped team with 2 new bowlers. Thursday, is the same team. I will be a sub on Tuesday, as I was last year, but still bowled 14 week of the season.

That's great Dennis. Good luck getting back into it.

Was just asked last night to sub on Fridays. I told him I could do it on weekends when I don't have the kids. Now I am bowling on Tuesdays, subbing on Mondays, Fridays, and Sundays.

Looks like a lot of folks took the summer off, myself included. Looking forward to getting back into the league setting. Have been practicing and getting some coaching. Hope it helps my game.

Will be bowling 2 leagues this year. Decided to step it up and join a couple guys I went to Nationals with in a High Average league. It is in a new house that I haven't bowled much in, but is a favorite in the area with bowlers. We start up the Tuesday after Labor Day and 2nd league starts up the following week.

Hope to get a few more honor scores this year and, most importantly to me, get that elusive 800 series.

Good luck on the lanes all.

I decided to bowl two leagues this winter, one a PBAX league on Monday night, and the other a fun mixed league on Saturday night. They should complement each other well. I just hope both centers do a good job of maintaining the lanes. In between, there should be some opportunities to sub in some other leagues along with some tournaments once the season gets started.

Cool, I got in a PBAX league for wednesday nights, still looking for a second league.

It sunk in for my wife when she asked me, "If you only bowl in one league, how often will you practice?" "About twice a week." "If you bowl in two leagues, how often will you practice?" "About once a week" "Oh".

Last night was the first night of league. The approaches were down right bad. I couldn't get left of 37 with my feet or I stopped like I was stepping in glue. Inside of 37 was a little better but not much. Shot 187-214-186. First time bowling since mid-April and bad approaches, I can't complain too much. The only issue is that the league is short on teams. We had 14 teams at the meeting, 2 more called on Monday saying that they were in, and only 8 showed up last night. If we have 1 team drop, the league is done. If that happens, we may take a few guys and form a team or 2 on Mondays in my old house. We'll see next week.

Starting a mens league tonight and am platooning with my wife on a friday night mixed league this year.

Trying to solidify fundamentals to begin this year and I think I am going to adjust the span on my bowling balls early in the year to make the fit better.

Had a decent summer as far as bowling goes. worked on fundamentals in a PBA experience league and got humbled. Although I did have less of an average drop than some other people in our league.

Can't believe it's already that time again! I've taken my 1st summer off since I got back into bowling about 7 years ago. Time, money, and tendonitis being key contributors. Hopefully my elbow holds up, only bowled once this summer and shot a 700 so not bad for the time off lol.

I'm signed up for 2 leagues (Mon & Wed) and subbing for a couple months in a third on Friday nights. Plus I'm 6th man for a team on Thursday nights.

Looking to build on 2012-2013 where I rolled 7 honor scores (2 299 games, 4 300 games, and 1 800 series) and raised my composite league average 8 pins to 224.

The main place for improvement in 13-14 is in my tournament play. I've had a very weak tournament season this year.
