Dennis, as much as I hate to admit it, the only thing that I can see that went wrong is Operator error. Just two weeks before...

New balls, shoes, plus experience = 236

I guess for that game last week it should be...

New balls, shoes, experience, plus nagging doubts over going into the tank one game for the last four weeks, lack of focus, spotty concentration, missing marks, and varying ball speed = 118

This just remind me of a mastercard commerical. Dont worry Scott i did that two straight weeks had good series all over my average but had one game i bombed. But last week i got all three games above my average.

New Ball $125
New Shoes $84
League Night $17
Missing Marks, Ball Speed Off, Lack of Concentration and Learning from the 118 game what not to do = Price Less

Well got back from league. I'm satisified how i bowled. Made some silly mistake that cost me a couple 200 games to night. I cant belive i actually missed those spare i usally automatic on those spares, but i know why i missed pulled the ball and got fast. I just need to sometimes step back and reset and then pick up the spare. Oh well. I ended up with 188, 172, 194 for a 554 series. Raising my average 1 pin again.

Overall we got surprise when we came in today looked like last week people who who ahead of us lost and it bumped us up to 9th so we no longer second to last we are fourth from last. But then today was a close match we lost all games frown but lost by 10-15 pins average.

Did get complimant tonight from this 198 he like i like how you roll the ball must be bowling for long time. I'm like just got back i was surprised a 198 average bowler complimenting me when he like 20 more pins higher average then i am. But was nice to hear that im bowling form is better just gotta work on spare game more.

Well I did absolutely horrible last night, worst series of the year.. 421. I've been sick and took some Robotussin before the match.. seemed to have my head all messed up. I was all over the place and never found a line. Our Fri night league losing streak continues .. 3 straight weeks, 0-12.

Hopefully things go better today as I'm playing in the City Tournament.

I finally had a good series on Sun night. I have been waiting all year to finally break out and bowl well. If I hadn't blown a couple of spares I could have taken down the high series on the league, but oh well.. something still to shoot for.

I shot 226 (missed a 4 pin in the 10th), 243 (big ugly split on 2nd ball in the 10th), 256 for a 725. It has been a while, as a matter of fact I think that is my first 700 this year.

Unfortunately (well, fortunately for her), the other team's 124 average bowler rolled a 198 her second game so we lost that one, but we won 5 out of 7 and almost doubled our point total for the second half of the season (won 3, won 0, won 3, won 5), so our current record is not 11 - 17. We are finally moving out of the cellar of the league, I hope.

Mike

I had a pretty good week bowling wise... On wednesday I shot a 573 series (182-198-193). I could have break 200 on that second game but sort of choked. As a team we took 5 out of 7 and we kept our position in 5th place (out of 30 teams).

On friday I had a 584 series (211-191-182)and I was feeling pretty confident mentally, which is rare, because I tend to be to hard on myself. My team took all 7 points and we moved up a couple of places. We've been doing really bad as a team on friday for several weeks now, so this was a nice break for a change.

Thursday league. I was just all over the place the first two games couldnt find a line. Changed ball to quickly when i should of moved. First Gam 156 and Second game got worse witha 132. When i found the pocket i would leave spares i would normally pickup but i was chopping them missing them for the right and left. Third game i was like well might as expirement so i took my inifite one out and moved some three boards with my feet and and probally 1 board with my target and the ball hit the pocket. Turkey then after that i could strike but was leaving taps put was picking the spares up however left two splits and didnt covert so ended up with a 189.

Ended up with a (156-132-189 = 471) I was rididing on series over 500 for more than 2 months and been bowling great until last week was bound to happen. Got hit some practice this week and work on some timming issues notice game one and two not balance at the line. Got also work on spare game. So hopping next league night will be better.

Well it seems I'm on the upswing since that horrendous 421. Saturday tournament I bowled 6 games. First series in the 530's, second series in the 570's (after starting with a 212 and a 226 I dropped the last game to the 130s).

One thing I noticed over the 6 games (and a good bowler on the other team pointed out) is I sometimes have a hard time getting a good knee bend and low body position. When I do I have good results but when I pop up/ lean forward bad things happen. I think if I can focus on this for a bit my average should keep going up. Competitive league is tonight and we're in 3rd but only 1 point out of first place. I can't wait!
