This year I made my bucket list, and that is I qualified in our local yearly bowling tournament. From previous posts I have worked very hard, brought my average up from around the mid 170s to around 195. tried to qualify every year I could bowl and this year I made it. Didn't make it past the roll off but I just wanted to qualify. I was now bowling with the big boys. Now I can relax, go back to my normal 170-175 average, and have some fun bowling and not worry about missing a 5 pin or whatever pin. Granted it was in the senior division which I am that age, made it in the top 16 of 59 people trying and some of them trying multiple times. Just want to say I'm happy now.

Good for you and congratulations!

My association is small enough that we still have a 700 Club Tournament. They have a cool ring made for the winner. That's one of my goals this year.

I've never bowled a 700 series, figure I have to many flaws in my game, I think I kept them pretty much at bay trying to qualify for this city tournament, I would like to bowl a 700 but don't think I have it in me anymore. I'll let my flaws come out again and just take er easy.
