Practiced on Tuesday--working on spares, a new ball (Avalanche) and different axis rotations. Bowled the last game for score and threw 10 strikes for a 238.

Last Friday's league, I bowled 186-278-176 640. I threw 16 of 17 strikes in the middle, but my spare game was horrible, just completely broken by the end of the night.

I shot a 592 in my senior league yesterday, a definite morale booster.


John, just to let you know. A teammate of mine, a lady Coach, had a knee replacement on her sliding knee, and reconstructive surgery on the other in early June. She plans to return to the team in late October. Good luck.

I discussed knee surgery with my doctor, a orthopaedic surgeon, and he said I wasn't ready for surgery yet - Maybe some time in the future but not now. I asked him who does he operate on and he told me he operates on those patients who come to see him in a wheelchair. I also discussed my situation with the proprietor of the bowling alley where I bowl. His knees are worse than mine. He just confirmed what my doctor told me that surgery is a last resort.

Today was a pretty good day, I ended up stayin after highschool practice. Well lets just say I was there for 5 hours. I bowled a 170, 180, 154, 193, 211, 179, 171, 203, and 184. All in all it was a pretty good day, although there at the end my wrist really started hurtin me. But Oh well.

I threw a 151, 172, and 145 for a 468 series.

I couldn't find any consistentcy in my approach with my 16 pound balls. I have an approach that seems to be working for me but I feel like I have to force my 16 pound balls in it to make them work. Gamewise I missed way too many easy spares and had way too many opens.

Very good point, but considering I missed most of them to the left I was left with quite a few splits. [/quote]

Do you throw a straight ball at your spares or a reactive ball? Were the splits resolutes of high hits low hits, what?
