I do too. It will go a long way to freeing up my arm swing and give me a consistent release as at times I have squeeze to hold on to the ball and then have to try to let go in time, which kills me when I have to try to swing the ball. Taking the Liberator up to 2000 or even 4000 might work and give some more length but still with a nice controlled hook. Mine has a nice even arc, or with the way I had to throw it anyways. Its at 1000 which is OOB, but I made sure by sanding it to 1000 abralon.

As for my Tuesday league. Its finally over, YEAH!!!!! We started the night in seventh place, took 4 of 7 points and stayed in seventh or as I like to refer to it, first place of the bottom half of the league. That got us $135 per a bowler, and we finished in eleventh out of twelve the first half for $100 a piece. We ended up with only three bowlers as our fourth again had a problem getting out of work. The second place team swept all 7 points tonight to take first place, and since they took first place the first half as well to become outright champs.

My games weren't all that great. The first game I tried using my Radical Inferno but had a hard time getting the ball going to the right since I had to try to play 12 out to 6. I think I got it outside of 15 three times, once was flush in the pocket for a strike in the first frame, the next time light with little lift leaving a bucket and the last time I lost balance, lost leverage the the ball hit the 6-10. I switched to my Groove since I was constantly throwing the ball straight up the boards and often hitting Brooklyn. I had 5 strikes this game, only two of them in the pocket the other 3 crossing over. I can't remember what I finished with, 150 or 160 something.

The second game I got a few things straighted out on my first ball but cam up short on spares often. This was a 150 or 160 something game.

The third game was better, being in the 170s, once again missing some spares. I made many more than the Monday night including covering all of my 10 pins. Now its time to get some ball work done and then start the hardcore changing to the my game.

Congrats on making first place in the second division! grin

It's hard work trying to compete when your teammates don't show up. Attendance is my #1 concern when I try to latch onto a new team.

I hear you about attendance. Last Season had two teammate that missed almost half of the games. They wonder why we were in the bottom because they didnt show up.

This year my team was good on attendance though two of them decided to take off on postion week and week before when we really needed them to help win. We ended up in 6th place was very tight race only 6 pts seperated everyone from 1-8th.

My Tuesday team, once we actually got a full team that everyone was committed to bowling the whole season attendance wasn't an issue. The team as it is now didn't come together until the sixth week. Out of the four of us we had a total of 16 missed games. I had six games, one due to the time I got home from work that day and the other due to icy roads and a lot of back ups in the only two routes to get there. Last week two bowlers missed due to work and one of them had to miss this week due to work, someone not showing up, and the other that missed last week also had to leave the last game one week due to an emergency with one of his kids. This team is staying together and adding fifth moving to another league and center.

Now the Monday team I was on permanent sub on is a different story. I only bowled around half the season, and had almost as many games as most of the regular bowlers. That team won't be together next season and I was offered a regular spot on the team.

Thursday Night League. Sweepers tonight. Last night of league.

Tonight i dont know what it was i just felt good the ball just came off my hand and i could do no wrong. What a great time to score big .

So Game 1: 225 No opens no major disaster i have four bagger to start and finsihed the game on high note.

Game 2 - 232 No Opens. I had front four again. Then transistion started to take over going high a bit made a move was back striking again.

Game 3 - 236 No Opens. I had front five. Then was experience so carry down so made the move and trusted and ended up with a good game.

Series Total - 225-232-236 = 693 They gave 102 pins handicap for 182 average so ended up 795 with handicap. I took first place in sweeper.

Team Wise we ended up in 6th place not bad we in the running till the end just could finish. Summer league start next week and ready to get going.

Very nice job Brandon. I have been on a roll where for the most part I have been clicking and it sure feels good. Last night I had a few moments in the second game and last game that prevented me from being in the 550's. I just have to make sure I keep on top of my game and try to avoid sliding back into those upper 400 series.

Your will get that 700 probably sooner than you think. Keep up the good work.

I bowl in 2 leagues this summer. Monday night casino league and Thursday night PBA experience league. So far I have a 197 average in the league on monday and a 176 average in the PBA experience league. Last week for my Monday night league was a bit rough. Only a 556. I couldn't hit my marks at all haha. PBA experience, I bowled on the Shark and the Viper so far. I need a ball with more surface for the Shark. My equipment matches up half decent for the Viper. I'm looking forward to the upcoming patterns. The PBA experience league was a great decision on my part. It has helped my spare game tremendously. Lets just say I have to make A LOT of spares haha. Bowling is my anti-drug haha.
