MJBT - 09/17/02 12:18 AM

I recently bowled an MJBT tournament in alexandria minnesota. they lay down a sport shot just for the tour and I was told it bein my first time and all not to get discouraged if i bowl bad because its a hard shot and no one can really bowls that good. I started off on a lane where i kept runnin into the wall because the inside tight shot was where it was at and ne thing outside was not comin back no where. Well, i qualified in the top ten at -167 after 9games of qualifying. Then i went off and bowled another 10gmaes of matchplay and went from +10 to -208 in the last 4games, my wrist just gave out and I was screwed. Ended up winnin 160$ in scholarships

Congrats on cashing in!

It does my heart good to read a highly descriptive post from a youth bowler. You're obviously well versed on the complexity of our sport.

Wrist gave out? What lead you to believe that was your problem? Did you loose revs?

thanx guys. and what led me to believe that was it was because my wrist was in soo much pain I couldn't even stay under the ball and get revs on it, aspirin did nothing, and i thought my brace was left back home where i work but it was actually in my bag, i found that out after i was done bowling. LOL

well i just bowled another MJBT event in Brooklyn Park on Sun, I would of qualified if it wasn't for my last game but i shot a 1804 over 9games, about a 200avg which is what my goal was. Came back to my house the next day and shot a 609 so im finally pullin my head outta my a**.
