Certainly not helped out this week with the first game 178, 3 ball changes , 1st ball over hooking moved left and out to the same place and it stayed there wasn't coming back at all, Down to the weakest ball 225-and 221 in the 2nd and 3rd. Everyone struggled tonight.

Sorry to hear about your snow issue. This week we bowled against a team that pre bowled. Ugh. I allowed it because apparently two of them had deaths in their family.
Anyway 221- 243- 205 = 669

First game first frame split. Had to adjust from practice line. Converted 3-4-6-7-10 split in 7th frame. Second game clean..third game I struggled with clean release issues. One open frame from a split in 5th frame. Got 28 of 30 points against the prebowl.

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been on that much. Work has been a killer lately. Finally realized that 2 years of not practicing and a year of slouching off at the gym is finally catching up to me. I'm just not consistent, and every 5 or 6 frames I throw some horrible shot that just has me scratching my head "WTF was that?"

Anyway, made my average this week (for what that's worth), but best of all we took the quarter. Had to sweep this week and last, but we managed it. Anyway, the way this year is going I'll take 183,204,195-582.

Embarrassed. 156 - 168 - 147.

Had a great look in practice, started to use the Ride, then the Hy Road Pearl early on. I should have switched to a lane ball. The lanes were burnt, but I hit the pocket fairly solid, adjusted some to eliminate the 10-pins.

As my balls came back, they began to look like someone had burnt a tire on top of them. Gritty, belt marks, solid black round marks.

My best look was standing on 25 going out to 12 with the Storm Ride, not my A-game for sure. People were shocked at my scores because frankly, they didn't look that bad. Well the third game did look bad. For me, this center has become simply a fun place, good times, roll some balls and drink more beers. I simply can't throw 16-17 mph all night without ending up with my arm in a sling.

This ball is coming out of storage.

A ball befitting of the lame, I mean lane conditions we have on Fridays. Easy to clean, looks great, fantastically straight. Best part is, I can go to league on Fridays with just one ball in my little shoulder tote.

SteveH sounds like the conditions are as bad as the place I play at on a tuesday, I use to take my VL scores from there but its now got to the stage were I take a spare ball just in case i can't find one of the 4 house balls i can get my thumb in, Then play the house ball on a cranker line way way out of my comfort zone. For 10 pins I'm so far left I'm in Belmo country

Yup. For me to be standing anywhere outside of 20 and finding which of the unoiled 15 boards right gives me the best angle is just silly. For me, the most ludicrous part of the sport now is that the USBC will not even look at conditions, yet now guards their far more difficult pattern like a national secret. 99% of bowlers never get to bowl on something like that, but that is the pool of donors the OC entires comes from.

Don't have the USBC over here , Alley doesn't say what the pattern is , just it's been freshly oiled for the league, Thursday night I was 12 boards difference on the pair
Scores from tonight 195-217-210 for 622. Still not decided the best way to play. All the advice you hear is move in and follow the oil, I'm going right and playing to go behind the burnt up area at the end of the pattern which seems to be really long and not that heavy, anything inside of board 7 and its going left of the head pin,through the puddle out to 7 and its sliding long won't recover. Finished the night again playing down board 2 .

Did real practice at our good center today. Not fresh, leftover from yesterday. But always fairly even, and cleaned.

Used my same Hy Road Pearl and the Storm Ride. I could use the Ride standing on 26 out to four or in to around 12. The Hy Road doesn't have the cover for that, but was really good standing on 18 and out to 7-10. Did that four five games, alternating between lines with each ball. Had a five bagger in all but games 1-2, and really focused on speed and axis tilt.

It's great having a center that cares so close I "could" walk to it.
