Nice- clean is more impressive when you have to shoot at a lot of spares.
Sometimes you find a little satisfaction in shooting your average on a night that requires some unusual adjustments and executing. We didn't bowl last week for the holidays, so I didn't pick up a ball for 2 weeks. Practice felt awkward. Was missing inside, everything was going through the nose. By the end of practice I had settled in a little, but I was seeing about a 4 board difference between the 2 lanes, which I don't do well. I manage to shoot 216 with one wide open split, then 225 with another split. The right lane is getting tighter, but the left lane is hooking more and more, so by the middle of game 3 I had an 8 board difference on the approach and 6 boards at arrows. Most nights when this kind of thing happens, I'd be lucky to shoot 600. I managed to shoot 278 with one Brooklyn strike and a 3-9 spare in the middle to eke out 719 on a night that 570 was looking much more likely.

Last night's bowling, frame-by-frame

After being absent in consecutive weeks with the flu and an infected left ankle, I got clearance for bowling from the local wound care clinic. I had a slow start, but making most of my spares, before going clean in the second game with a 232, my second-best game of the season in this league. I ran out of gas a bit in the last one, but doubled late to save a 186 and make this my best set of the season in this league.

Result: 156-232-186=574
Average (54 games): 171
Average for last 9 games: 186
Next week's AVG+1 score: 552

Composite average (60 games): 174

Si was absent, and I got a 130-ish game from Steve in the first game for our only point.

I took a couple of years off when my son was unable to bowl due to surgery. He's doing better now so we both joined a league (sanctioned finally) again this fall and I recently found my way back to these boards again.

I'm sorry to see that the virtual league has languished, but maybe it will pick up again some day?

Anyway, 1/2 way through the season I'm sitting around 217. It wasn't as bad as I thought in shaking off the rust although my stats (via BowlSK) say that my spare shooting has clearly suffered and is down about 10% from my peak of 85.6% of makeable.

Had a nice 724 set last week and have also achieved new personal bests of 290 and 761 (not the same week) so far.

I'll try to post here at least occasionally, but I have posted the Fall/Winter games at BowlSK, which is something I have found to be invaluable (mostly to note ball reaction mid-set).

Last night's bowling, frame-by-frame

My third game may have been my strangest clean game yet. It started with a three-count (making the spare, of course), and, in the 7th, I managed to pick the 10 clean out of the rack and made that spare. The only strike in the game was the one that made the game officially clean, in the 10th frame.

Result: 192-166-173=531
Average (57 games): 171
Average for last 9 games: 183
Next week's AVG+1 score: 537

Composite average (63 games): 174;

Si bowled the best game I'd ever seen him bowl in the first game, a 276 that should have been a 278 but for the 8 fill. We ran out of gas after that, however, as the first game was our only point.

If you can give me dates and leagues for those personal bests, I can give a congratulatory shout-out on our Facebook page. smile

Last night's bowling, frame-by-frame

I was happy with my first game, but I needed to finish better, as I frittered away pins with four single-pin misses.

Result: 201-160-128-489
Average (60 games): 171
Average for last 9 games: 177
Next week's AVG+1 score: 564

Composite average (66 games): 173

Other than me for a game, we got good efforts from Si (612) and Steve (consistent 120s) to win the first two games and total.

Last night's bowling, frame-by-frame

We were moved at the start because a mess was made near the bowling area, and the pocket was mostly elusive on the new pair. I just made enough spares to get to 500.

Result: 190-155-158=503
Average (63 games): 171
Average for last 9 games: 169
Next week's AVG+1 score: 577

Composite average (69 games): 173

Because I didn't have Si (sick) or Steve (left before bowling started), my team had to forfeit, and I'm not sure of the future of the team going forward.
