Congrats on the 800, Fin. Guess we really don't need an appendix, at least not for bowling.

Thanks! Yeah, apparently the quickest way to add a pin or 2 to your average is to have it removed. Hmmm, who knew? My post appendectomy average tumbled from 268 all the way to 250 last night, though, as all I could manage was a 697.

Congrats on the 800 Fin. I was hoping to get my first one tonight but will have to settle for my 4th 300 instead and a series of 246+300+226=772. Got a brand new ball drilled up - Hammer Arson Flare Solid. Tried this at a demo day last month and was really impressed with it. I was also reading what Joe had to say about ball weight and how he's having success at 14# and I decided it was time for me to drop back down from 16# to 15#. Carry was excellent and I threw the ball a lot more consistently with the lighter weight. Had 19 strikes in a row at one point.

Did have a bit of a collapse late in the 3rd however (missed a single pin spare by an inch because the ball fell out of my hand, then left a greek church because my speed was too low on a later shot) that cost me the 800. I've now made 3 runs at an 800 this season, the first two of which were in tournaments (first one being 300 & 770 for 3, and the second in a team event where it was 760 for 3 missing a move in the 3rd game on both lanes and getting back-to-back splits). Feel like I'm going to get it soon. But for now, I'll take another 300, especially since this house did change up the shot this season to keep the number of honor scores down.

I'm calling it an Andy Varipapa 800. I know it doesn't count for the record books, but it felt good to roll games of 254, 279, 279 in between a starting game of 257, and finishing game of 249 at a local scratch doubles tournament with VampyreBowler.

We qualified first with a 2429 total for 5 games, 1318 for me, and 1111 for Vampyre. Vampyre was ready to close the deal for first place with a 276 game in the finals, but my 188 was not nearly enough. The lanes were toast by then, and I didn't make the right adjustment. But, still a good and memorable day on the lanes.
