Wrapped up my Saturday night mixed league today. This is how things went for me tonight. I rolled games of 215, 200 and 206 for a 621 series. I had 4 opens on the night. The first was a 7 pin I didn't line up properly for in the first game. The other 3 were 2 splits and a washout early in the second game. Luckily I got things back on track after that. As a team we swept all 7 points again. We got hot at just the right time winning 21 straight points and 25 of the last 28. We went into the night in ninth place, 2 points behind eighth but with no chance to move higher than sixth depending on how other teams did but it looked like we were going to end up in eighth out of 46 teams. I should end the league with a 196 average.

Friday was epic for me - got my new high series.

Back was aching so downed some Ibu and dedicated myself to staying as straight up as possible. . .

First 7 - have a little room inside, maybe a board, and a ton of room outside as long as I keep my hand in it. 8 . . . blew into a 2-8-10. I mean, ouch. Ball just JUMPED on the left lane. Puzzled. Strike in 9 so right lane is okay, try same shot on left to make sure, brooklyn, first fill REALLY heavy strike, so make an adjustment on the last fill (cause. . . who cares? LOL) and ball never recovered. Hmmmmm

Second game - struggle to get 215. Finally figure out that I need to do a 2.5/1 move on the left lane and I'm back in the pocket.

Third game - I'm getting a bit tired. Back is starting to become an issue, but stick with it - 269.

Only open is the 8th in the first game. 759 - my new high series. Me happy! We also took all four points . . . we had been 2 games out of first (top 5 teams were within 3 points) so if we took 4 (which we did) and the top 2 split the points, we would have won the league (we had the pinfall) . . . but no, they missed splitting by 4 pins. . . they were 4 pins apart for total. Bah! ROFL so fourth to second on the last night. I'll take it! laugh

Great series mmalsed, well done.

Bowled 233,226,253 for 712 tonight which is actually my all time high series as well. Actually started the night with 6 spares but then got lined up with the right ball and struck out the rest of the game, then went on to throw 17 strikes in the last two games. Had a couple opens on splits but I felt for the most part I was getting the ball off my hand clean and hitting my target, and throwing at a consistent speed. Those were some things I wanted to work on after struggling last night in my PBAX league debut (something I posted about in the summer league thread).

With tonight's effort I was able to bring my average up to 201. It was at 199 a couple of weeks ago and I wasn't sure if I was going to finish at 200. Actually averaging 201 in both of my leagues now. Have one more week left in this league (thanks snow days) and my other league finishes up on Thursday.

Finished up my Thursday league last night with 194, 188, and 215. The lanes were pretty dry and I think everyone in the center struggled. Found a line I could use in the 3rd game and the right ball and strung enough strikes together to finish with a 201 average in this league as well.

This actually wraps up my fall/winter season for 2013-14. I found out that only the first and second half winners will bowl on Tuesday night, the rest are just showing up for food and to collect our prize money. Our team either finished 3rd or 4th, and we're getting a team award for high handicap series, and I am getting an individual award for high handicap series as well. Overall not a bad season but I am capable of doing much better.

Some stats from the month of May:

Games bowled: 21
Average: 223.47
Highest series: 751
Lowest series: 593
Highest game: 289
Lowest game: 177
Games with 9+ strikes in a row: 2 (279,289)
Games with 11 strikes in a row: none
Single pin leaves: 51
Single pin spares: 48 (all misses were the 10-pin)
Clean games: 8 (38%)

Notes:
* Not my best month, but I attribute that to incorporating major changes into my game. Still haven't gotten them down entirely, but when I did...
* I had some great runs. The most recent was 279-289 (that included 20 strikes in a row). I also had 2-268 games in the same set (1st and 3rd games).
* Unfortunately, some inconsistency entered my game, and I had a lot of sub-200 games, which is expected during changes
* I have a tournament to bowl on the 31st, and then I "go dark" for about 7 weeks with no bowling at all while I continue to work out and try to get myself into better physical shape
