Welp, another good news/bad news night bowling for me and my squad.

I finally have seemed to get back into my groove. Threw a 244/277/201 for a 722 series. Had 13 X's in a row between games one and two. Game two was my 5th 11 strike game of the season (still seeking my first 300). Had the front 8 and just completely lost the ball out of my hand in the 9th. Yanked it back into the head pin and got lucky leaving only the 3-6-10. Thought I was gonna have a church up there. Game 3 I probably jumped the gun on a ball change, then compounded the mistake by whiffing a couple 10 pins and chopping a bucket. Switched back to my original ball in the 8th and took it off the sheet to salvage my 200/700.

That was the good news. The bad news is we, yet again, ran into a buzz saw. Any other team and we likely would have swept last night. Both of the first two games our team scored 1200+ HC and we lost both of them (the first by 100+ pins!). Barely scraped away a point in the 3rd game. Lost total with a 355x score, which ended up being good for the second best team series in the house last night. Team we bowled had two 16x averages throw 250+ the first game. One of 'em dropped a 325 HC game, and ended up with an 83x HC series. Pretty tough to beat that.

Last night's bowling, frame-by-frame

While this is a different night if I make more of my single pins, I did have a decent game in a game other than the first, and carry was more the issue in the third.

Result: 150-196-147=493
Average (84 games): 180
Average for last 9 games: 164
Next week's AVG+1 score: 626

Composite average (156 games): 180

I didn't remember Si shooting 500 since we started bowling together again, but he did last night with a 515, thanks to a 213 third game. We won the third game, and total came down to the other anchor getting pins off a spare, which he didn't. Tom also chipped in a 234 third game and had a 549.

Had a profitable last couple of weeks- the center I bowl in on Wednesday nights runs a couple of "break the bank" events during league. They designate 3 frames in the first and second games that you need to strike in, and 2 more in the 3rd plus you need all 3 in the 10th to win. The other one is a "super break the bank", with the only difference is you need one more strike a game, still need the 3 in the 10th of the 3rd game. The old format was just 3 strikes a game, 4/game for the super, neither required 3 in the 10th before. Since they went to the 3 in the 10th format a few years ago, I hadn't been able to break either one.
So earlier this season, the super bank got up to $9000+ before someone broke it, so what do I do? Break it 9 days later for $220 after it started over. Not complaining, though, it was $220 more than I walked in with.
So flash forward to last week- I break the regular bank for $2772 while shooting 241-268-300-809, then break it again this week for $117. So hopefully my mental block about breaking it is behind me, and I can focus on the super bank, which is over $4k again.

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame

Carry was a major issue tonight, as I left 13 single pins, 10 of which were corner pins. I missed four of the single pins, but, on a lot of nights, I wouldn't have had to shoot them. The second game was almost clean, despite the big split, as I slid the 6 in the vicinity of the 7.

Result: 143-177-161=481
Average (75 games): 180
Average for last 9 games: 165
Next week's AVG+1 score: 559

Composite average (159 games): 180

Peter returned tonight, but we still lost all eight to first place.

the rolloffs start next week. We ended 3rd first half and 4th second. But, second over all in total points.

So, the top 8 teams are rolling for $3200 over the next 3 weeks. We already won $800 for the first half and $750 for the second. Worst we can do in rolloff is $2200, placing 8th.

So, a good year, on Monday.

Thursday rolloffs start next week. We are 3rd in total points, so the wild card team of the top 4. League was in thirds. So, one winner in each , plus us as wild card.

We won the Sr League today, winning both halves. Banquet and payout in 2 weeks. Since we won both halves, there is NO rolloff. This team has won the past 2 Summers, and the past 2 Fall leagues. There are rumbles to break us up. IDK why, we were in 7th just 5 weeks ago. Never lost another game.

Some exciting prizes there. All of our leagues are flat prize funds, not much excitement from 1st through 10th place. I'd rather be envious of the big winners than have practically everyone a loser overall. I wish people would ask to change these formats, or just eliminate the prize funds altogether.

Last night's bowling, frame-by-frame

I've been feeling much better, but my bowling scores didn't necessarily show it until last night, which was on the pair I've been killing this season. The first game was rougher, but I was clean the rest of the night after making a ball change in the 9th frame of that game. Also, none of the open frames in the first game were on single pins.

Result: 174-206-248=628
Average (87 games): 181
Average for last 9 games: 184
Next week's AVG+1 score: 631

Composite average (162 games): 180

Si was absent, and Tom was up and down, but did shoot 265 first game to help us win the point. My third game allowed us to win that point and total (by 75 pins).

I have become very conscious of the league payout. This has been made possible by the low lineage fees charged by the center. We pay $25 a week, but a little more then $9 is for lineage. So, about $16 goes into the prize fund for each bowler, every week. And, that really builds up. So, $16, X 35 weeks, X 80 bowlers. A prize fund of over $44,000.


It's the same on my thurs nite league in the same center.

By the time ours pays out for two holiday rolloffs, individual prizes at the end of the year, (1st through 4th), team money suffers.

Last Sunday was another over 60 tournament. This runs about a dozen times per season, sometimes once in a month, sometimes twice. The format is scratch, 3 games across 6 lanes. cut to an eliminator, which used to be 12 but the turn outs have been good enough that they now are taking 16. Here's the catch. They take the top 10. Then from age 65-69 they take the top 2. Age 70-74 top2 and over 75 years old top 2. I have bowled maybe a dozen of these over the last 2 years (when I became eligible), and never finished game 2 with a chance to make the cut. This past Sunday was different. Not in the first game department, where I whiffed a 7 pin, and had a 4-7-T split and only a coupla strikes and wound up at 167. By the end of game one I was reasonably sure where to play and with what piece. This tournament was at one of the few local house with wood lanes. I took a coupla older pieces and ended up using one of 'em once I was lined up. Started game 2 with the front 5, then chopped the 245, then had another 4xs, then a stuffed 8 pin. 254 and I was over the nominal cut line after 2 games! COOL!. Last game was clean to the 9th where I went split split. Left a 2-7-8 in the 10th and got the back pin on the conversion attempt. And missed the cut by 8.
Nertz. Oh well....baby steps I guess. I have been in tournament clubs before where it took time to learn how to make the cut then win one. I will do the same with this (at least in MY mind). I will miss the next one, but i will be at the season finale in about 5 weeks.

Oh yeah...EVERYone that made it on age had a lower number than I tossed....
