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

It was looking like a more or less ordinary night for me after two games, but, after a spare to start, everything just "clicked" and I started carrying, going five in a row, single-pin spare, big-ish split, and then two Brooklyn strikes, which loosened me up enough (particularly knowing the game was in hand) to throw the last two flush. The 244 was my highest game in over three years, the last time I had a game that good coming on Sept. 18, 2013, in which I had both a 259 and a 244 in bowling 665.

Result: 161-162-244=567
Average (87 games): 173
Average for last 9 games: 173
Next week's AVG+1 score: 581

Composite average (162 games): 174

My spare in the 10th first game was important, because we won by a pin on the fill. The second game was not as close, and, as I mentioned, the first strike in the 10th meant the third game win, for all four points.

My third game was definitely better than my first two, particularly because I couldn't seem to buy a spare in those two. A bright side is that I did better on my splits than usual, converting one (the 4-9) and picking four out of another (Greek church).

Result: 154-146-181=481
Average (78 games): 174
Average for last 9 games: 161

After losing the first game, we won the other two and today, with the third game win coming on Harry's double in the 10th. Harry had a one-open (a 7-10) 761.

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

I only put strikes together twice tonight, and most of my spare misses were the 10 pin, including twice in the 10th. 50/50 on splits, the one I converted being the 2-7.

Result: 196-168-171=535
Average (90 games): 173
Average for last 9 games: 181
Next week's AVG+1 score: 568

Composite average (168 games): 173

Our opponents were all over average, including a 756 by their anchor, and the team lost all four.

Pretty sure I saw something last night that I've never seen before- a couple of lanes to our right, a young guy who has shot 2 300s in this league this season went front 10, foul spare for 280.

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

The reader's attention should be drawn to the third game, as it was one of my rare clean games. I had to convert the 4-7-9 in the 10th that game to keep it clean, and, considering how often I ruin clean games in the 10th, I told people I'd take that every day and twice on Sunday. smile

Result: 180-193-190=563
Average (81 games): 174
Average for last 9 games: 171
Next week's AVG+1 score: 528

Composite average: 174

Peter came back to the team after his winter vacation tonight. I was high man on the pair, and the team took all eight.

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

I was only a bit better than perfectly average tonight. There was at least a double in every game, but also either a split or a washout, two splits in the third game. A couple of missed 10s were thrown in, but I did make more than I missed.

Result: 165-188-168=521
Average (93 games): 173
Average for last 9 games: 180
Next week's AVG+1 score: 569

Composite average (174 games): 174

Team didn't have a good night, as we lost all three games by at least 50 pins.

I finally shot a 600 today in league where each of the 3 games were over 200. Usually I will have one or two deuces with the total being over 600. Spare shooting helped me today as I wasn't consistently striking. Finding the pocket wasn't the problem, carry was.

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

Tonight kind of went according to form: First game was the high game, second game the low one, and the third in the middle. I had problems with my 10 pin, but I also missed a couple of easier 3 pins.

Result: 193-151-161=505
Average (84 games): 174
Average for last 9 games: 172
Next week's AVG+1 score: 548

Composite average (177 games): 174

Team lost the first game, but, with Ed's 624 with a 245 third game, we won the other two and total.

Mixed bag for the year:

Average: 196
High Game: 266
High Series: 709

Probably my worse season in years. I felt like I bowled okay at times but down overall. My league bowls on the Landmark Rec patterns (Stonehenge, Great Wall of China, Gateway Arch, and Big Ben). They aren't tough by any stretch of the imagination but different than a normal house shot.

Team wise, we won a quarter so we are in the league finals next week. Step ladder. We are the 3 seed so we need to win 3 games to win it. We have over $5700 in our kitty right now. Combined, I'm hoping for close to $2K.

Overall, meh. Going to have 2 new teammates next year. There was a LOT of drama between the 2 that are leaving, a guy who I've bowled with for years, and our PSO. Well, now their PSO. I'm looking for a new one. Again. Bowling shouldn't have drama.

I've bowled pedestrian for the year, some times horrible. The last several weeks have been my best, nothing hurt too much wink

Best last night on the 47' Scorpion pattern. Went 179-180-189-198

Easily could have been better, missed four ten pins. Most accurate and by far the most consistent speed all season long.
