Great bowling Richie keep it up! And very nice series mmalsed

Bowled Tuesday and it was very meh. Had 6 strikes in each of my first two games. Game one I managed a 167 with those 6 strikes. 4 splits, gross. Game two I scraped out a 196 with another couple splits. Never went through the head pin, they were all light leaves. I only had 1 spare in the first two games. Just weird.

Last game I changed balls and moved outside, worked out and I hit a 236 for a 599 series. We took 6 of 8 points. First place team this trimester is currently 24-0 after 3 weeks...bleh...

I have had a very rough start to the season, and until this week, had no sets over 600...
Wednesday, I was subbing in a place I do not bowl in a whole lot and I had a real shot at 700, but for a few stubborn 10 pins. SO I could have had my high for the year and STILL not had a 6. LoL
I went 28 clean before whiffing a 10 in the 9th and the 11th. The very next day I went 28 clean again (including picking the 6-7-10) before blowing a couple easies...two 6s consecutively after NONE all year. Crazy year.

My decision to switch to urethane appears to be successful. I started with my Turbo but the lanes had a little more oil than the week before. I made an adjustment right and shot in the 260's the first game. 2nd game I missed a 10 pin early and didn't string strikes until the 5th frame but I still shot in the 240's. The last game I had the front 8 and I pulled the 9th shot a little to leave a 7 pin. I finished that game in the 260's for a 783. Sort of wish I had the front 10 the last game for the 800. The team took 5 out of 7 in a position week against 1st place, we're only 1 point behind them now.

Thanks Dennis. It seems like every time I get close to 800, around 1/2 of the time I don't even end up shooting my high series. I left a solid 10 in the 1st ball of the 10th frame on 8 in a row. I missed a 10 pin the 2nd frame of the 2nd game. If I had either of those go different, I would have had a more solid chance the 3rd game.

The funny part is that I was the only one on the pair who carried well using a 25-30 year old urethane ball.

That does it. Where is my Urethane?? Got a Blue Rhino, plugged, drilled and refinished. But, haven't used it in league yet.

It's coming out today at practice.

Nice bowling Mark.

No Urethane for me yet other than spare ball!

Well, bowled with the Urethane, 2 games. Both were clean games, even 2 ten pins. But, few doubles. Just makable, easy spares. Almost had a Dutch 200 in each game. One for 8 frames and the other for 7. So, 2 190 games. Each time, I ruined the dutch with a double. Hmm, I may have had 2 no-tap 300's. Would have been close.

Third game, I loosened the line and gave the ball more room off the dry. Light hit spits and buckets. So, keep it tight.

Jury is still out. But, it worked on this pair. Sunday morning dryness.

I find that when I can carry with urethane, I also stay out of trouble. I've left one split in my last 6 games and it was due to misreading the lanes in the 2nd frame of the first game the week before last. I was leaving a lot of splits and fighting a nasty over/under reaction with resin after the pattern changed. The last time I switched to urethane I made the switch for the same reasons. It is so odd to me because I was bowling very well this season with my vintage Danger Zone up until the change.

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame

Pretty much regressed to the mean tonight, and, as usual, my spare game didn't really help, with three missed single pins, two 10s and a 7, and ending the night with three open frames (two splits).

Result: 166-179-152=497
Average (42 games): 178
Average for last 9 games: 190
Next week's AVG+1 score: 560

Composite average (81 games): 180

Team lost all eight points, with Peter bowling our only deuce game (212) in the third game.
