My league season has finally come to end. Thank goodness. This is the least fun I've had bowling since I started. Anyone who says low scoring conditions are the way bowling should be, please come bowl a season at Shake, Rattle, Bowl inside Cliff Castle Casino in Camp Verde, Arizona. The place is a dungeon. I hate it.

If any powers-that-be from any major bowling company are reading this, please visit the Verde Valley. We have three main towns that are growing way too fast, we have the worst bowling alley in the country, and we have a large, angry base of league bowlers. You'll prosper here, I promise.

In a 20 team league I was high average, had the high game, and the high series. I managed that with a 191 average, a 257, and a 678 series. I'm fairly certain there wasn't a 700 shot in the house across all leagues.

Now to take the summer off and see if I still want to bowl come August.

Final average (84 games): 179

Pulled a bone head move last night.

I cut the grass, then took a nap before final playoff night. Slept thru first game. We lost. Got there late and only bowled the last 2 games, 212 and 208 without practice.

won 2 of 3 and total pins.

then celebrated with the team afterward. Got a payout of $725. Good for 5th place.

Today is Senior tournament. Prize is free bowling for a year.

Last night's bowling, frame-by-frame

I mostly struggled with my release last night, failing to connect on a double and leaving multi-pin spares more often than not. The third game had a chance to be clean, but I missed the pocket in the 10th, leaving a tough spare.

Result: 154-154-180=488
Average (96 games): 179
Average for last 9 games: 165
Next week's AVG+1 score: 581

Composite average (180 games): 179

Team won a close second game (by two pins) and the third by enough for total.

All leagues ended as of last night. Results:

Sr League, 1st place and second indiv hi game, $194 payout.
Monday Night, 5th place, hi team game scratch, 2nd in point total, $725 payout.
Thurs Night, 1st place, highest point total, Hi team game, $740 payout.

So, It was a profitable year.
Sr league, $14 for 33 weeks = $462, - payout of $194, = $268 cost
Monday, $25 for 33 wks = $825, - payout of $725, = $100 cost
Thurs, $22 for 32 wks = $704, - payout of $740, = $36 to the good.

Total cost to bowl $332 for the whole year.

Find it odd that the lowest cost league cost me the most to bowl.

Last night's bowling, frame-by-frame

After three consecutive open frames in the middle of the first game, I was chasing the score a little bit, but I still had a shot at my +1 if I could go sheet after the strike in the 8th third game, which fizzled by missing a 2 pin and chopping a baby split. My spare game was balanced by making every 10 pin, as well as a couple of tougher splits.

Result: 150-194-204=548
Final average (99 games): 179
Average for last 9 games: 176

Final composite average (183 games): 179

We would have moved ahead of our opponents with a third game win, but my failed baby split conversion cost us, as their anchor went spare-strike to win by one pin.

Well, that went badly last night for our team. In the other post, I mentioned how we needed two big nights to try to get into first. We bowled both games over average and still lost each game by about 70 pins. We also lost the third game by probably the same amount of pins. The third place team lost the second game, so we locked into second, which is still good for the season. I shot 244, 224, 207 for a 675. I couldn't string strikes in the third game after the front three and it killed my game.

On a side note, I'm amazed at how misinformed/uninformed some bowlers who supposedly know a lot are. We had a ball return jam by a pin and one of the balls on the other team came back with a lot of belt marks. I made a quip about the upcoming rule change about cleaners and was told by a long time bowler on the other team that you currently are not allowed to clean a ball during a game, only between games. I tried to bring up the new rule change and why the USBC has a "Approved Anytime" list of cleaners and that the only current rule forbids products that can change the surface during competition, not all cleaners since the rule is about surface changes. Then, the weight hole change came up and he tries to tell me that all balls with weight holes will have to be thrown out by 2020; they can't be plugged (or he said they would be grandfathered in, I'm not sure who on their team said what even though it doesn't matter as that is also wrong). I ended up looking up the rule change and showing my teammate (I wanted to show that I wasn't crazy at this point) about how the 3 oz rule goes into effect Jan 1, 2020 so balls have time to be plugged by Aug 1, 2020 when the balance hole rule goes into effect. It's like this person on the other team didn't read anything on his own.
