Nice recovery in the 3rd game mmalsed. Good bowling Richie as well, hope to see some 600s out of you in the near future, keep at it. smile

Had another strong night, 267+236+248=751. Like last week I got up in the 10th of game 1 with a chance to roll a perfect game, but instead left a flat 7 and missed it by a hair on the spare attempt. Still put together a solid night and considering my high series last season was a 747 and I have two 750+ series in the first month of the new season, I'm very pleased. Had another lefty on the pair with me tonight as well, did leave a split in the middle of the 2nd game but the made the right moves after that.

After we finished the other lefty (an older guy) told me that it's been a long time since he's seen a left handed stroker bowl this well out of this house. I'm averaging 243 now through 12 games and hope I can keep this up, but working with my coach this summer to get just a little more rotation is paying off, so perhaps having a high rev rate isn't the be all and end all. Leaving far fewer corner pins, carrying light hits, and even got a messenger to come over and take out a 7 pin on one of my strikes tonight.

Third week in the new center and I am struggling big time. Last week, I struggled trying to find a line on the inside for two games before moving outside and finally finding one. So this week, I focused on trying to find a line on the outside (unsuccessfully) for two games before moving inside where I started striking immediately.

158, 179, 244.

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame (Linked to BowlSK sheet)

My 10 pins were the story of my night, as I missed more than I made. The solace was there was only one missed in the third game, and I had a double covering that.

Result: 167-173-193=533
Average (9 games): 180
Next week's AVG+1 score: 549

Composite average (15 games): 175

Harry subbed for Peter for the first time this season, but he largely couldn't help us. We did salvage the third game.

You both got better each game, not bad.

Shot 238+194+205=637 to come back down to earth. Lanes were really tough after the first game due to the humidity we had here today. Plus we had a lot of traffic on the left side (4 of us). So it got really tricky and by the end of the 2nd game I figured out I was confined to playing a small portion of the lane and had to really get around it and keep my speed down to carry. Managed a triple in each of the last two games but too many open frames. Our team took all 8 however and we're 22-2 on the young season so I'll take it.

Wronghander, I have to chuckle at your comment that there was a lot of traffic on your side, (4). I have all 5 on myown team that roll very similar lines, along with a few from the other team. Yes, the right side.

You lefties have it easy.

Recent sessions with the coach are maybe starting to bear fruit...maybe...Still only had 1 good game and 2 bad, but the good game netted me a win against a 269 game (he had to spot me some sticks) and a pot game (1st of the year). Also, the good game was the 1st game...previous 2 sessions the good game came in the 3rd.

251-577 [shrug]

I told the coach I was gonna keep buggin' him 'til I get it right. The eye roll was nearly audible LoL
on hiatus until fall leagues start
I have WAY too much equipment
now generating ideas to build myself a ball rack...sheesh
