Tonight I put in a lack luster performance on the lanes. This is how it all went down. When you make less than half of makeable spares and leave 6 splits it tends to be like that.

I started with my Misfit as it seemed to have a good reaction going up 8. Unfortunately when I made a good shot it didn't carry, but I made many bad shots, ending the game with a 165.

After the fifth frame of the second game I finally decided to try to change balls. Reaction wasn't an issue so much as making quality shots but sometimes a change helps. I think it also helped that this ball just felt better on my hand. After a couple of frames trying to get lined up I was able to punch out in the ninth and tenth for a 161. My Execution seemed much better.

I started out the last game with 5 strikes in the first six frames, then a couple of shots that overreacted, the first of which I thought was something was off and the second I figured was a sudden lane transition and made a move and after a 7-10 split in the ninth was able to strike out in the tenth for a 211.

As a team we only took 2 points, the last game and that was only after I had thrown the first two strikes in the tenth. Had I not we would have lost all 7 points.

Had more volume out on the lanes last night, had fun rolling my Defiant Soul for a change for the first three games. The ball does not have the violent carry the IQTP does (makes sense, really..) but it does snap the tens out in a way I like. Finished with the IQTP, 886 for 4, I can live with that. Was at 903 last week.. some semblance of consistency at least.

After a two week break, I got to get back to league last night. It was position round for the second quarter, and my team was in first. I shot 207, 224, 243 for 674. Unfortunately, no one else on my team did all to well and we won just enough points to tie with second place for the quarter. That forced a one game roll off and my team did much better. I shot 212 ad was low man on the team. We won.

886 for four games, and winning the quarter...not a bad night.

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

Well, I can't really blame "rust" for breaking my streak of over-average league nights because I was actually over average in the first two games. I did miss a couple of single pins in the third game, a 7 and a 10, but I was missing more of the former than the latter (two 7s vs. the lone 10).

Result: 182-179-148=509
Average (51 games): 173
Average for last 9 games: 174
Next week's AVG+1 score: 542

I got over-average nights from my first three bowlers (Carl, Brian, and Berta) for all four points against the vacant. I didn't find out what happened in the match to our left, so I won't know if we moved up until I see the final first half standings.

In my Friday classic league I shot 204, 224, 235 for 663. After 886 for four on Tuesday, I'm pretty pleased with my bowling for the week. Honestly, that's how I feel I should bowl every week, but its a work in progress.

This is how things went for me on the lanes last night. Started out well enough with the front 7 the first game but two single pin misses in the ninth and tenth frame was a let down for a 236. We lost that game by 7 pins.

The second game I started with an open but kept it clean for the rest of the game, leaving my only split of the night on the fill ball. Ended with a 211 game. We also lost this game by about 40.

The last game, things started to come apart a little. After leaving a couple of 4 pins I decided to make a move but had a hard time hitting my target, even though sometimes I was able to strike despite a 4 board miss left and the times I did hit my target I put it wide where it was slick and the ball wouldn't make it back. Ended the game with a 178 and 625 total. This game we won by more than enough to take total for 3 of 7 points on the night.

We also received the first half pay out last night and our team was in a 3 way tie for 23rd but due to pin count actually put us at 25th.

Hey Cal. When you shut that first game down, you really did a good job.

Changed up my arsenal a bit, here's how things went Friday night.

Game 1: Using the Vapor Zone, nice shots, of course, I missed some spares I should've picked. Closed out the 10th frame with strikes, finished up with 175.

Game 2: Vapor Zone starts coming in light. 4th frame, ball barely makes the pocket, leaving a 2-10 split, which I was lucky enough to convert. Switch to the new ball, Track 714C. Get the feel, start hitting the pocket, recover the game at a 164. Tie the other team.

Game 3: Figured out the lanes, but left some easy spares. Finished out with a 184.

A tidy little 174 average for the series.

I know. I could only shake my head when I finished up that game.
