I hadn't had a 300 in almost a year then almost 4 last week. unfortunately, just bowling fun leagues this summer because of work schedule.

I shot them at two different houses and 3 different lines. the first one was right off the gutter playing into a wall of carrydown. that one felt like I was cheating it seemed too easy.

the next one was standing 21 throwing 11 at the arrows. I didn't have a gimme shot on this one. just made good shots.
I had shot 227 gm1 then was trying to chase transition only shot 199. That put me on a quest for the proper adjustment, so, I pulled out the ball I started with, added speed and had the last 15.

Next day a 279 with a solid 8 frame 6.

next day another 300 playing down the 7 board with miss area to the right. I figured out I had to keep my speed up in this one too.

each game had at least one "lucky" shot like a barely tripped 4pin, a light mixer, etc. and all of the 300s came in the 3rd game.

I found it comes down to the 9 counts falling. From now on once I line up, I'm trying hard to really note and hold roll characteristics and entry angles when lanes transition. it's really critical for me because alternate lines don't carry as well as speed changes in the same area of the lane.

Really lining up properly will make you look like a genius out there.

I'm gonna see if I can throw 3 or more a week from now on.. now to get them in the same series....

Had 300 in Sr League yesterday. Woohoo. But, non-sanctioned. So, doesn't count.

But, it helped to win 1st place.

Dennis, I can still mention the league & bowling center (with city/state) on Facebook. I only use forum names on Facebook, too. smile

Thanks Richie. But, I don't care to be on Facebook.

My whole family unfriended me there, years ago. I never went back.

Congrats Ray and Dennis, great rolling.

This is good advice and I agree. It's all about how the ball goes through the pins. These single pin leaves have prevented me from getting to the next level of bowling the last couple of seasons, but something I'm concentrating on now. Merely hitting the pocket is not good enough.

Last night was a good example of this. Got off to a slow start and left a couple of blower 10 pins. Instead of calling it bad luck and making no adjustments (like I would normally do) I concentrated on getting it out a little further to get more entry angle and my carry went up significantly. Had the front 7 in the 3rd game but left two 7 pins and had to settle for a clean 268, but I'll take it.

had one of those nites, last nite. Call them Average Management nite.

Lanes seemed unusually week. All my balls hooked early, and I really had trouble keeping the ball outside. I went to my spare ball in game 2. At least, I held the outside better.

But, the bad thing..... I missed the 10 pin 7 times. Each time, the plastic spare ball hooked left.

Last nite was Playoff for Summer league. We were in first going in. Not at the end. Oh well, First in one league, second in the other. Took home $250 for Summer leagues.

What a week that was. Congratulations. I'd love to have a week like that.

A few weeks ago I put 35 shots in the pocket but left 10 single pin spares on the back row. I thought all 35 had a good chance of striking. ended up with 699 (missed 2 10 pin)

Carry is what keeps a lot of bowlers from averaging 280+ in house shot leagues. Entry angle is crucial- exit location is just as important, though. If your ball isn't splitting the 8 and 9 on its way off the deck, adjust until it does. Every flat corner pin is left because the ball deflects off of its ideal path.

Dennis, if you got your whole family to unfriend you on Facebook, you were doing Facebook right!
