This is the full break down of how my night went. I had games of 214, 217 and 184 for a 615 set. I had 5 opens, two were splits, one a 5 pin that during the swing I got this funny feeling in my hand and just tossed the ball up the right side pretty straight, and the last two were chops of two pin clusters. The last game with a slight move inside I kept missing inside of my target line and the ball would be too much in the oil hitting light and leaving multiple pin leaves. As a team we did take all 7 points. We were in a 4 way tie for 14th place, actually sitting at 17th because of pin count, before the night started. We have 2 weeks left and could possibly finish in the top 10 out of 46.

Second games have generally been the bane of my bowling existence this season, and tonight was another case-in-point. I am now averaging almost a full 10 pins under my first game average in the second game this season.

Result: 187-133-165=485
Average (96 games): 174
Average for last 9 games: 169
Next week's AVG+1 score: 566

Team generally got run over the first two games, but we salvaged the third game.

Tomorrow is our last night, and we are in the middle of the pack. We'll roll for sweeper money.

Our Secretary handed out a sheet from his computerized system that listed all games through the year and the average for games 1, 2, and 3. It clearly showed that I got worse as the oil disappeared. I was 12 pins higher average in game 1 over game 3. And, that was contrary to the league average which got higher as the oil was spent. Told me the lanes got easier for those who can't bowl on oil.

So last night someone in our league bowled back to back 300's the first two games. Bowled a 252 last game. But he's a lefty so it shouldn't count right? lol

The lanes seemed oilier than usual. Might've been the pair. Split the first shot. Good shot. Time to move already. Split in the 9th frame, messed up a nice recovery from the first frame. finished with a 211

Second game, clean 203. Only double came in the 10th frame.

Third game, this was another game where I had an ill timed split in the 9th frame. I finished with a 219.

Total of 633 series. 21 strikes. 3 split/opens. 6/6 on ten pins.

I used my Reign of Fire the first game. Switched to my Marvel Pearl midway through the second game.

Oh well. there's always next year.

191, wrong ball
236, ball change
210, open 9th and 10th, jeesh Way to finish the year!!

I certainly have my work cut out for me to raise the bar for the next Fall league. I ended up 177 in one league and 174 in the other. Lack of consistency and Execution turned a fairly easy 185/190 or higher into reality.

So just to keep it up and learn, summer league is Wednesdays sanction. Need to get back to work on my footwork, which has become erratic of late. Spend less time on equipment and more time on basics and fundamentals.

Setting a goal to raise the bar and get more 600 series. Make those spares, get more strikes by settling in and focusing. My two teams came in second to last and fourth from last, but both teams are fun, and both leagues are reasonable good ones, that never hurts.

I might even spend some time on Joe Bowler's positioning, if I can figure the math out wink

This is how my night on the lanes went. I had a rocky first two games. My first strike on the right lane came on my fill ball the first game. My first double didn't happen until the tenth frame of the second game. The right lane just gave me trouble. Either I didn't throw a good shot on the right lane or when I did I just couldn't carry. Finally I decided to start piping my plastic ball up the lane just inside of the 5 board. I was able to finally put together a string of strikes. I was able to stay in the pocket, if a bit light and keep the last game clean and manage to hit average on the night. My games were 173, 169 and 247 for a 589. Had I struck out in the last game I could have had a 600 but left a solid 9 in the eleventh. As a team we swept all 7 points going into the end of the season next week. Going into the night we were in twelfth place and probably cracked the top 10.

Some stats from the month of April:

Games bowled: 27
Average: 232.07
Highest series: 752
Lowest series: 651
Highest game: 287
Lowest game: 195(!)
Games with 9+ strikes in a row: 2 (270,287)
Games with 11 strikes in a row: 0
Single pin leaves: 64
Single pin spares: 55 (all misses were the 10-pin)
Clean games: 11 (40%)

Some notes:
* From March 19 to April 23 I bowled 34 straight games over 200
* On April 28 that string was broken by the 195 game.
* The next two games in that set were 269-287 which gave me a 556 and was my second highest 2-consecutive game set ever.
* Continued my season-long goal of not missing any non-10-pin single pin spares. This will be an amazing accomplishment if I can do it.
* My 230.81 average on Monday nights cannot be surpassed.
* My current season average of 228.xx would be good for fourth or fifth in the whole DC area association from last year

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame (Linked to BowlSK sheet)

There were just not many strikes out there for me tonight, but I did manage not to hit my -1, so I will be happy to take the one pin year-to-year improvement in my average.

Result: 147-175-154=476
Final average (99 games): 174
Average for last 9 games: 164

We were bowling for a forfeit point in the first game and won it, and, though we lost the other two games, we should get the point for total because of the forfeited first game.
