Great bowling Brandon,
Wow..a 650+ thats a confidence builder for ya , good job!!

For me, we took all 7 points and are now in first place. I had a pair of 195's and a 170 for a 560. I'm getting close..seems like those ugly splits always show up to screw up what could have been a much better series. Such was the case last night. But I am happy to finally see some improvment. Its something to build on smile

Thanks Guys! smile

Yeah a good confindence builder for sure. Especailly since last two weeks have been medicore what im bowling. I seem to bowl great agaist good bowlers for some reason. If i can keep my mental game and mindset that way to dont over think & and have fun. It helps me over come bad breaks during the game and just let me be more relax and reults usally are i bowl good.

Scott - great job on being 70+ over on series the last 2 weeks thumbsup

T-Reed - Awesome having at least 1 200 game a week thumbsup

Brandon - WOW!!!!! 650+ - great job thumbsup

Eraser - Whoo hooo - 560 smile , I know its not the 600 you have been looking for but it's coming and you had a great night thumbsup
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I only had a 490 but I felt good about most of my night and I am happy with the 490 although I really wanted my 500 smile.

Very disappointed with my release and follow-through but my hand felt good (I have been issues lately with swelling because of the weather).

I missed a TON of easy, easy spares - mainly because I would hit outside my mark where there was no oil and my ball would hook too far. Oh well - that's what I get for missing my mark - ha ha.

I ended up bowling a 151, 153, 186 - so at least I went up every game and I bowled over my average (went in at 153). So far I have had at least 1 game over 170 for the last, I believe, 4-5 weeks (will have to look to see, but that sounds about right).

I think it was my first game that was going something along the line of strike, 9 miss, strike, 9 miss, strike, strike, 9 miss, etc. - HA - if only I could have executed those 1 pin spares. wink

May spare game was WAY off last night frown but I had a bunch of beautiful strikes and even had a turkey thumbsup

Other than my release and follow-through I feel really good about last night grin

Well last night I nearly broke through to the next plateau but then the last game in the first 5 frames I fell into some problems that I didnít fight through very well (dropping my side, thumb hanging up in the ball, and loss of concentration). I shot a 511 (189, 186, 136) but that last game was a killer as because of those problems I mentioned. I opened 4 or the first 5 frames and was sitting at 49 in the 5th frame.

The good new is we won all 4, the first two very easily and then the last game by 8 pins. Our 11 average bowler shot her first double of the year in the 10th. I stayed clean with a 9-spare and strike in the 10th and their anchor only needed to mark to win but pulled it bad and knocked down 3 on the first ball and then missed the spare.

So after averaging in the 140ís for two weeks I have now averaged 167, 170, and 170 in the 3 weeks since. Hopefully next week I can break that plateau by doing a better job at fighting through problems.

Great bowling everyone! Now I just hope I can come on here with my own good news on Monday! I'm hoping there will be some oil on the lanes this week. They've been breaking down badly so far all season long. Here's to Saturday night, and showing those pins who's boss! :-)

Good job Melissa. Nice getting every game over 150. For me it is hard to do that consistently. One pin spares drive me nuts too because I always seem to miss a few a night and that is 20 or 30 pins I leave out there that I should have.

I am feeling a lot better about my game but I kind of have guarded optismism because I have been in a pretty long general slump dating back to last spring. The good thing is this is the first time in quite awhile that I have strung three straight 500 series in a row so I am trying to build off that. Just a few more spares and a few more strikes a night and I will be where I want to get in the mid 500 series. My focus and drive are so much better than they were during the summer.

Thanks Melissa,
Nice going on the string of 170 games, and that 186 game is nothing to sneeze at....nice game. smile Just a couple more spares and you be in that 550 and beyond area.

I used an older ball last night that I have not used in quite awhile (not sure why, I bowled a 300 game with it)and it was really moving for me. I got into a little trouble with it when it dove late and I left a few splits. My scores would have been better if not for them...but thats the breaks. Got to not leave them next time. I get another crack at them Saturday mixed league wink

Melissa - nice going on that 186 game! When your first 500 series comes, it may completely blow you away. I was looking for my first 500 until January, when I rolled a 570 one night; and this while having a 141 average. Five weeks later, I was rolling 500's every week. Keep it up, work on those spares, and you might even roll a 600 before you know it!

Brandon - Great series! Way to go!
