Someone has to get the summer league thread started. smile

I'm likely only subbing on Wed. night again, if that, but let us know about your summer plans, or update us if your summer league(s) have already started.

I'm joining a new league at a different house this summer. Start date is June 11. I may replace my current winter league with this one if it works out. Only thing, it's Sundays at 5:00PM. Not sure if I like that time, summer league will decide for me.

Only doing one this summer. I had 2 in the spring different houses.I was told Lilburn Zone was a higher average house and you won't average the same here at Stars and Strikes. They were right I was a pin higher at SS. So back to Lilburn.

I am somewhat begrudgingly bowling a summer league at the abysmal bowling center in a casino near me. A very good family friend asked me to be on his team, and I couldn't turn him down.

Two weeks in I've shot 641 and 592. We'll see how it goes from here.

I have been bowling on Sunday nights the last 2 years and really enjoy it. One advantage is no traffic on the way to bowling and with an earlier start time you're out earlier as well. Does kind of stink during football season though.

My summer plans are up in the air at the moment and may result in me taking the summer off from league bowling unfortunately. Want to keep bowling but with my home center closing and my work schedule preventing me from bowling most nights it's going to be difficult. There's a center near me that has a league I can get in but it would be unsanctioned so I'm not sure I want to do that. I'll figure it out once I get back from nationals I guess.

Either way I won't be taking the summer off from bowling. I purchased a summer pass from Brunswick Zone and will be practicing at least 2-3x per week as well as continuing to take lessons. Hoping to bowl a couple of tournaments as well and be ready to go when the fall season starts.

I'm having a decent summer so far. I've had sets of 647, 592, 614, 674, and 655 for a 212 average after 15 games.

About two months ago I found a nagging error in my game. With that ironed out I'm executing as good as I was a few years ago when I was at my best. I haven't felt this good/confident bowling in about five years. Big scores haven't really come yet, but I know they're on the way. I can feel it.

Oh and I'm throwing a Green Quantum that I absolutely love. Smooth, strong, no roll out, and awesome loud carry. Go get one.

I'm bowling in 2 leagues over Summer.
One at regular house and averaging the same, ~ 194.
And, at another house with a definite bank shot. Just roll the ball out easy, and it comes back. Averaging 212 there.

Has to be lane condition for the difference.

Can't use my heavy oil ball on either shot. Use my Black diamond at regular house and a highly polished pearl at the easy house. I tried the pearl at the regular house. It just slid.

I started bowling the new league yesterday. Wow is all I can say. For the past 3 seasons, I've been bowling in a fairly competitive Vegas league where people took things sometimes a bit too seriously. The lanes weren't easy but if you shot well occasionally, some people would started alleging sandbagging.

This new league is like a beginner's league where the majority of bowlers skill level is way down. The house shot is set up super easy, toss it around 10 board and the ball walks into the pocket.

I'm glad I decided to try it out for the short summer. I can't do this league for the long haul, it will ruin my game.

The lanes weren't hard again tonight, I shot a 7 series.

255, 224, 237 (716).

The highlight of the night was going 30 clean. I had one challenging spare to make, the 9-10. I aimed for a wide 10-pin shot to pick it up.
