League play Wednesday morning, It was a sad day in mudville today. Started out good hitting my spot everything felt good. Decided to try a ball I haven't tried for a while because the lanes were a little oily. The first throw, the ball felt good, up in the air, down and two feet from the foul line into the gutter. Did not hurt myself, but I was done. The swing went away, the release, the lousy footwork was lousier, if that's a word. Everything I practised was gone, mentally I could not recoup. It was always in the back of my mind, will I do it again. Of course I went back to my old ball, but it just did not feel right, tape in the ball tape out of the ball, tape back in tape back out. Should have just went home. Managed a great 167-150-141. Feel like back to square one.

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

Both nights I've missed 500 so far this season have been on Wednesday night, but I've also had nights like tonight to give me hope, my third game notwithstanding. I was able to put something together late in the first game and parts of the second game, though the second game really should have been clean if not for single pin misses.

Result: 181-204-157=542
Average (15 games): 171
Average for last 9 games: 174
Next week's AVG+1 score: 527

Composite average (27 games): 175

Si tried out a wrist support tonight, and he was better once he got used to it, as he was over average after the first game, which helped the team win the last two games and total.

I've been struggling since the start of the season. I bowled a house tournament today to see if I could shake things up a bit.

Nope, my bowling rut continues. 201, 206 and finishing with a fantastic 152. Needless to say I missed the cut. undecided

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

This was definitely a night I bowled better than my score. Granted there were a few Brooklyn strikes in the run, but I hadn't had the front seven in a while, and I was thinking a 700 might be possible midway through the second game. The 7-10 ending the night cost me my 600, but you can really point to the 10 pin in the second game and the 7 pin in the third game as doing me in.

Result: 235-189-171=595
Average (15 games): 184
Average for last 9 games: 182
Next week's AVG+1 score: 558

Composite average (30 games): 178

My 595 was still high on the pair, and the team won seven points, tying just the second game.

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

I really saved my best bowling for the end tonight, and it was a tight third game at the end. First game should have been better, as well, as all but one ball was dead in the pocket and I missed three 10 pins.

Result: 173-175-213=561
Average (18 games): 173
Average for last 9 games: 175
Next week's AVG+1 score: 524

Composite average (33 games): 178

My run of strikes near the end of the night was only part of a team third game win, as all five of us were over average, and we were bowling a fairly stacked team. With us winning the first game, as well, we split the points 2-2, and I couldn't help but notice that the leaders forfeited.

I bowled a bit better this week. I recognized some issues with my release, for lack of a better term, it is no longer "quiet". It used to be straight back, hesitate and back down through the release. Now I feel all kinds of movement going on during the down swing. It seems to have started recently.

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

It's becoming more and more apparent that taking (most of) the summer off from bowling has improved my overall game, as my composite average is currently well over last year's. Supporting this is the fact that I've already bowled nine games at least 200, where I had 16 between my two leagues all of last season.

Result: 217-185-169=571
Average (18 games): 185
Average for last 9 games: 187
Next week's AVG+1 score: 563

Composite average (36 games): 179

Peter was actually our star of the night, as he had a 716 set with a 258 first game. Team won the first two games, plus total comfortably.

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

I had my best night of the season to date tonight. I really was only in trouble in the 3rd frame of the second game, when I left a washout, but I made the spare, and only missed one spare in each game (but you might point to the 7 being off-spot for that miss). It was my first 600 series in this league since Dec. 3, 2014 (646) and also my highest series since then, as my only 600 series last year was the 612 on Oct. 11, 2015 in the Sunday Niters league.

Result: 194-199-222=615
Average (21 games): 178
Average for last 9 games: 190
Next week's AVG+1 score: 551

Composite average (39 games): 181

Our opponents all pre-bowled, and they had two good games which we were hard-pressed to top. Team did win the first game.

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

I lost most of my carry after the first game, and my problems were compounded by six corner pin misses. I made a move back on the approach after leaving ringing 10s, but my only other move to try to get carry was at the end, when I made a one board parallel move in to try to avoid the 7.

Result: 195-161-171=527
Average (21 games): 184
Average for last 9 games: 188
Next week's AVG+1 score: 570

Composite average (42 games): 181

Team won the first two games to maintain our lead on second place, but the team could have used a couple of made single pins from me in the second game to get the two for total.

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

Tonight was a memorable night in more ways than one. Not only was it the first time I've had back-to-back 600s in this league since Dec. 8 & 15, 2010 (618 and 689), but it was also my first time ever that I've had 29 clean frames out of 30. My only "hole" was the 4th frame of the 2nd game, when I hooked past a 2-4-5 cluster and had the 5 stand out of that. This might have been 29 clean and under 600, but I struck out at the end for my 601.

Result: 197-191-213=601
Average (24 games): 181
Average for last 9 games: 197
Next week's AVG+1 score: 568

Composite average (45 games): 182

Team won first and third games and total against one of the teams ahead of us with a position round looming next week.
