Country Club ran one this past season, a single's league but I don't think it was a full season, maybe 20-24 weeks. As I live just minutes from there, I occasionally go there and it is well kept, amazing for and AMF in the area. They have a good Pro Shop there as well that is open seven days a week. Its pretty roomy for a one sided center.

I've only been to King's Point once and that was last summer either right before or right after they put new lanes in. The condition sucked but it was the second shift of the Summer Doubles Tour. It felt a little crowded to me and thats just 4 people per a pair.

I got a call from the Monday nite league pres last night. They had their meeting, and I was on the list, then scratched off. He called to confirm that I was off, then asked me again to reconsider. I again told him I couldn't make the 6 pm start and declined.

I went to the lanes at 7:30 to practice PBA, and he was there. We talked. He asked if I could be listed by some team as a sub. I don't see how I could make that either.

So, I will stick with Tues, Wed, and sub on Fri. Practice on Thurs, and once on the weedend.

I haven't checked in for ages, but I kept up bowling over the summer on two leagues; one was an accuracy league. It had a rotating schedule of a US Open pattern, a 46' gutter to gutter one, and a 36' shorty. Needless to say I'm looking forward to my two Fall house shot leagues.

Monday and Wednesday nights, 4 person teams. I'll be substituting on Tuesdays/Fridays, and taking lesson/practice sessions on Saturday. My BWS has completely died so this transition period would be a good time to look for a new main go-to ball. I'm currently looking at the Twisted Fury, or the new BW Venom. We'll see. I'm looking to continue my trend of improving my average by 10 pins on each consecutive league I've bowled since I started. High 180s or a 190+ average between my two fall/winter leagues is my goal. I think it's quite logical in relation to how I've been bowling.

A young gun (my age) around our house just got his Level I coaching certification over the summer and we picked up a new digital camcorder and plugged it in to MotionView for lessons he'll be doing. I helped him set it up and we tried it out. I never knew I kind of "side-armed" the ball. I need to tighten my swing, stay closer to my body, and stay under the ball throughout the entire motion. Things to work on for sure.

Hey Sherman, long time no hear. Can't answer the ball questions. What works for one is not necessarily what words for another. I stay away from those discussions.

But, isn't it amazing to really see yourself on video? Sometimes, you look so different than what you thought you do. It would to do this periodically, and check your progress.

235+219+205=659

http://www.bowlsk.com/games/view-series.html?series=6555

Series recap: First night. We bowled the vacant team, which meant we needed to hit our average to win each game. One guy on the team had no sanctioned average, so he came in at 200, even though he is a 155 bowler. We stepped it up, taking all 7 points. I got beat in the 2nd round of brackets, 225-219. I was still in the Eliminator, so I may have some cash coming to me next week.

Being that we bowled the vacant team, and I ended up as deep as I did by the end of the game, I'm going to really have to a) get the avalanche polished up (it's at 2000 now) and b) get comfortable throwing a lot faster, or in front of the ball return.

Can you take it to 4000? How was the reaction when you had it there originally?

It came rough buff in the box. I liked it there, but not on the PBA patterns. Took it to 4000 and it reacted nearly identically. However, for the Scorpion and Shark I took it to 2000. I'd like to take it back to the rough buff to get it to store more energy on the house shot - I was up against the ball return in game 3 with just 4 righties on the pair, and my carry was suffering. When we bowl against someone next week, I will need to be prepared. to play real deep, and have enough energy to get back and carry.
