I was in the groove with the front 9 and then I tugged the next shot. ARGH!!!!

A few weeks later, I strung the front 10 but left a wobbly 10-pin on the 11th ball.

Nice going to get there goobee. I got the front 9 a couple of weeks only to leave a 9 pin on a good shot in the 10th. I rather miss and leave a single pin on a good shot than totally blow it on a bad shot.

That first 300 has been elusive for me. I don't need a handful, just one will do nicely. thumbsup

I'm not sure how I missed this post. Congratulations on putting some strings together. You'll get that first one soon.

It sure felt good to get my first out of the way. I'll be getting the ring in about a month or so.

Funny thing for me is, since that day I haven't had a good string since. My average is staying up but the high games don't happen as often now.

My timing and rhythm is more consistent now than ever before.

Keep practicing and it'll come around.

Thanks Bill. What's funny is, when I missed on the 10th ball, I was a little nervous.

A few weeks later time when I strung 9, I wasn't even thinking when I got to 11. I thought, is this 10 or 11? Mentally, I was not keeping track. I wasn't anxious at all when threw the 11th ball. A nice arc to the pocket which left a wobbly 10-pin.

Nice going goobee.

Couple weeks ago, I had the back 8 and the front 7 of the next game. That's 12, isn't it in there somewhere?

That's 15. A Varipapa 300 for sure! According to Andy, any 12 in a row was a 300 :-) 15 in a row is actually 3 Varipapa 300's :-)

I found this in the link above,

Quote:
Bob Leffert had the first shot at 300 when he shot 296 in
March 1923. In a touch of folklore, Bob threw that ball
to a watery grave in the Wildcat Creek a number of
weeks later. Bob just couldn’t seem to throw strikes with
that ball anymore. He thought he had used them all up in
his 300 game.


McHenry Rec. (were I bowl) is on the east side of the Fox river,
most of us cross the bridge on the way home,
I do believe there's more then one ball
that's been tossed over
the bridge. livid

Varipapa 300 only gives you a personal satisfaction that you can still roll 12 in a row. Wednesday I had the back 9 and front 5 in games 1 and 2 for 14 in a row.
