I will be joining 2 leagues.

The only problem is I have to drive an hour to get there.

My town's lanes close during the summer so I'll be headed to another town that ia an hour away to bowl.

But oh well....an 1 hour won't keep me away from the game I love

I am joining an adult-child league with my son. This will be our first time as team members (he's 12). It'll be fun for both of us.

At this time I am not sure how many leagues. I am bowling 1 Sport League, if it is run for the summer, and a scratch trios league for sure. I am also possibly bowling a Vegas league and a fun hdcp league.

I will be on at least 2 leagues. Tuesdays, a five man battle of the sexes league at one house, and on Thursdays, another five man battle of the sexes leagues at the house I bowled my last tournament in. I want the $2000 1st place payout, so now I have 2 chances to get it. thumbsup

I'm getting into a no-tap league with my wife over the Summer. It'll be my first no-tap league and I'm looking forward to putting up some big numbers from time to time, even though in the back of my mind I'll know it's only "make believe".

I think it'll help me over the long run though. It might get me used to seeing 8 or 9 strikes in a row and perhaps help me to say "I've been here before" when I put 8 or 9 together for real. That experience just might help me to keep going on a big string and not get too nervous since I will have seen the strings before.

The night of league will also serve as a time alone for my wife and me, a time to be away from the girls and to have some fun together. I also plan to work on my game and do some tournaments if I can.

I am taking the summer off to get surgery done on my knee and my non-bowling wrist

I'm joining 2 leagues, one right here and another in a city 1/2 hour from here. I've been having fun the last 8 months since I got back to bowling, so I figure I may as well double the fun for the summer. wink

I'm in a league this summer that gives out produce and meat as prizes (in addition to the prize money). 1 strike is a piece of produce, and a double is two. You can buy tickets to win meat, and when one of your tickets is called (about 5 to 10 times per week), you roll a dice to see if you have to roll a 7, 8, 9 or strike (intentionally throwing a 7 or 8 is hard). If you shoot what you were supposed to, you win anything from bacon to a turkey.

On a side note, my fall league team was down 100 pins last night for the league championship match, and in the 10th frame of the 3rd game, we figured that nearly all of us needed to strike out to win. Our 1st, 3rd, and 4th bowlers doubled. Our 2nd bowler opened, but he shot his career high series and 162 pins over his average. We then realized that our 5th bowler also had to double for us to win, and he struck out to win by 11 pins for our first ever 1st place finish...

I am of the persuasion that a "real" bowler does not not leave the sport for the summer. I have plenty of opportunities for summer league action and I may avail myself of the privilege yet.

But I definitely have plans to practice three days a week even on my vacation in Las Vegas in July. I also have made reservation for personal coaching and I will continue training as often as neccesary until I have reached my off season goals.
