Last night's bowling, frame-by-frame

Found out that my Hy-Road is still useful for down & in shots, but not carrying and missing the spares is still not going to cut it. The missed 10s were particularly frustrating, as I'd thought I'd found a way to cut the hook and the ball still went left.

Result: 150-174-151=475
Average (66 games): 170
Average for last 9 games: 163
Next week's AVG+1 score: 549

Composite average (72 games): 172

Si had a clean 195-ish game second game, and, where that was my better game, we won it and hung on for total. All three games could have been won, really.

I had been struggling over the last few weeks, some of which had to do with lane conditions and ball options/choices. I decided to revive a couple of my older balls and had them plugged and adjusted at the same time since my span has changed over time.

Used my Nomad Dagger that I got back on Friday and had much better success 269-232-193.

Unfortunately we were absolutely crushed in spite of bowling a net +266 over average as a team. The other team's 4th bowler with a 198 average was out of his mind and shot 264-279-300, 843 which is +249 by himself!

You just have to tip your hat sometimes I suppose...

I'm looking at picking up a Hy-Road X to get some more length when I need it while retaining some back end since my old Mutant Cell Pearl just isn't working like it used and my Hy-Road Solid is picking up too early on the lanes lately.

We'll see how it goes.

Last night's bowling, frame-by-frame

Very inconsistent (moves would have the opposite effect) as well as being unfortunate (all of the stone 7s). This is probably part of a February slump I think I get into.

Result: 160-156-171=487
Average (69 games): 170
Average for last 9 games: 162
Next week's AVG+1 score: 575

Composite average (75 games): 172

Si had a bad night for the first time in a while, so the team only won one (first game).

It's been a while since I posted on this thread. I've just been muddling through much of the last 2-3 months, but still likely averaging around 215-220 for that interval. It feels like it has been a battle to stay around my average. Shot 621 after starting with a solid 168 game. 10-15 was fried by the 2nd game, so I made a big jump inside and it was a great move. However, like clockwork my Vintage Danger Zone which first reacted great inside started to fade by the middle of the 3rd game. Our team took 5, we've been near the top all season. It looks like it will be a close battle for 1st.

Meanwhile, for the last two weeks our center has decided to have large group events with lots of kids right before our league. The parking lot has been a mess of people parked in fire lanes to load in their kids who apparently cannot walk to the car for whatever reason. There's rental shoes, house balls, and garbage left all over the place. Needless to say, the conditions of the lanes could also be better.

We pay extra in our league dues to have a pristine shot put on before our league. I think its only 2-bits per bowler. You might see if you can do that where you bowl. As for the garbage left by others, that something that needs to be taken up with management.

It's going to happen again on Friday next week. I wish we could arrange something like that for a fresh shot, but our center is starting to not like us league bowlers very much. They wouldn't have time to recondition the lanes anyway, these groups are getting done around 6:00 and we're supposed to start practice at 6:25.

My team got good news when Eric, who is on the Sunday night team I sub for, messaged me on Facebook asking if I had room on my Wednesday night team and asked if he could join us after I affirmed that fact. Eric carries a 213 average on Sunday night, so he became our new anchor bowler, with me moving to set-up.

Last night's bowling, frame-by-frame

Other than the splits and the washout in the third game, my night was pretty good. The real issue, however, was carrying my 7 pin, all but one of the solid variety.

Result: 174-202-136=512
Average (72 games): 170
Average for last 9 games: 163
Next week's AVG+1 score: 576

Composite average (78 games): 172

Si was really the one who stole the show, with a second game 267 that was just one pin from a 300 game, and had a 604 total. Eric shot a slightly bigger 600, and even Steve got into the act with a 134 third game. Needless to say, team won all four.

After a just completely miserable set last week where I just couldn't get any carry (10 strikes all night, despite 26 shots in the pocket), I rebounded well with much better carry (24 of 32) and had a clean series making all 10 spare leaves.

I tried out my new Hy-Road X last week, but it was just too strong given the lack of oil. This week there was a little more volume so I was able to stick with it until midway through the final game when I had to ball down.

247-257-233 for 737

My son had his first 700 series 215-259-226 to hit it on the nose!

Last night's bowling, frame-by-frame

Multi-pin spares, particularly splits and washouts, doomed this night, with the prime example being the back-to-back 4-5-7s, which told me I could no longer swing it. I missed two single pins, but neither was a 10.

Result: 169-138-166=473
Average (75 games): 169
Average for last 9 games: 163
Next week's AVG+1 score: 538

Composite average (81 games): 171

Eric couldn't make it (car trouble) and Si missed the first game; team won no points.
