First week last Friday - 201 - 131 - 176 = 508. Started off well and then lost the lane and couldn't quite figure it out to my liking. Hoping for better tonight.

Looks like you're high man in the house. (the house being Camaro5 bowling. )

We start on Monday. I'm gonna tell you now. I have been accused of sandbagging.

Better than lasts week i guess
I always have the pro shop guy sprinkle a little pixy dust on my new equipment. It helps a lot.

Keep at it. Once you get your approach and release down it's gonna get REALLY addicting.

We just finished the summer league on Monday. I averaged 190 for the first game 215 for the second game and 195 for the third game all summer. For an average right at 200.

So it takes me a while to get loose and get my ball up to speed and release consistantly smooth and then I'm ok, but I'm not a good enough bowler to adjust with the changing lanes.

Yea we started last week. Shot 700. Hey PQ watch how you throw that ball because it is almost a spinner going down the lane. Keep you hand a little more behind the ball.

That's the biggest thing is knowledge of the lanes. Watching and reading the oil break down and being able to Move ! I see more bowlers struggle with that than anything. I'm hard headed sometimes and think I can play that line instead of a ball change and or move my feet or target .
Still learning myself and no where close to the best bowlers in the house .
I'd love to have a 180-190's avg ! Taking a 200 or higher to tournaments is hard if its a handicap event .

It's the only way I know how to get the ball to slide on a real dry condition. Normally it's a 3/4 roll. But when they dry out I sweep around the ball a little higher and open my wrist a bit.

Nice. I haven't shot 300 in 16 years. lol

I've only been back bowling for about 7 years. One night a week and the previous nine years never went bowling even once. Shot my first 299 a couple years ago though. Got scared of the gutter and crossed over, weak brooklyn laft a 5.

I don't like tournaments anymore. I'm not good enough to have success in a scratch tourney and the handicapped tourneys are a joke. Always won by either a really good scratch team or a team with an inconsistent low average. The guys averaging right around 200 rarely win.

This past week was our nine pin no-tap night and as 200+ average bowlers, we have to shoot 780 or better. You have guys who play down and in and nine count all night long and shoot 800+ getting 140 pins handicap.

We should do it for real. Post our recaps and keep track. Maybe some video to help coach like Coop just did. Sometimes people can see things that we miss. Even on video.

Back in the mid 90s we took video of ourselves so we could see what we were doing. It helped me a ton. I am nothing like I was in the early vids.

I used to be good. But not for a long time now. Gotta bowl more than 3 games a week to be good. hahaha

That's all I have time for though. Just the one night.

Im in a handicapped league and i dont like the way that works out and is run. Bowling is fun but the team this week i played all had handicaps between 60 and 98.....so there total pins were 54 each game, totaling 162 up on us from the start. Then all of them shot 150's and up, they should have only had a handicap of no more than 50 at the most, so we beat them pins wise but add the handicap in and they raped us.....i guess thats what you get when you sandbag the first week in a handicapped league

I am not lying when I say I have been accused of sandbagging.

I was averaging 198 at the half way point of our league last year. We were 8 games behind the first place team with one week til position round and as luck would have it, we played the first place team the week before positions round. So we had to take all four games the week before, and then take all four games against them in the position round to tie them for record, and then win a best of three playoff. They had only lost I think 9 games the entire first half out of 63 so they were around the 51-9 mark.

We swept them the week before position round and swept them in the position round to tie them and force a best out of three playoff. So we had won 8 straight and was having to stay and bowl again.

Problem was that I shot 735 the week before and another 730+ the week of and he complained to the secratary that we were sandbaging and I should be re-rated. (The three weeks prior I had shot 550 at best and even a high 400 series. Average dropped from 198 to around 193.)

Well, it just so happens that Bonnie shot 120 pins above her average those weeks too. and she was getting like 50 pins per game. He was PISSED. Total poor sport. Even his teammates were not talking to him. The secretary told him there was no legitimate grounds to re-rate anyone.

Then, in the best of three we won the first two easily. And I shot almost 500 for the two.... lmmfao

So we had swept 10 straight games to win the first half.

BUT...................

Ya.

It sucks when people have those low 160 averages and pop off a 700+ series on your ass. You gotta be almost perfect to win.

I can remember a weekly traveling tourney back in the mid 90s up in Seattle area called the ADTBA. (Auto Dealers Tournament Bowlers Association) and it was a handicap tourney.

Best I ever did was 2nd place. But out of 400 entries that's not too bad. (of course I bowled it many times. lol)

But I can remember a freind of mine who was a scratch bowler in the stepplader finals he shot ok. Ended up with a 220+ game. However, his opponent ended up with a 319. How you might ask? Shot 279 that game and was a 150 bowler. So as it turned out, my buddy could have shot 300 and lost by 19. THAT guy was re-rated for that tournament. He averaged like 220 for the whole tournament.

First night tonight.

Shot 597.

Just bought brand new shoes tonight. Removable soles and heels. The soles were ok but I'm not a total plant bowler and my heel was gripping. So that's my excuse.

Not bad for the 1st night. I just joined a new team this year and all I heard was .. ease up ! You don't want a avg. That you can't roll next week. This is true but I was looking to shoot 700 so my bad I guess. With a 654 set and my last years book avg. Of 198 my new avg. Should be around a 208 . I'd like to stay around 200 but if I shoot high games every week I will . I hate sandbaggers .

I hear ya on the shoes ! I wear Dexter SST Myself. I have to have felt on the front haft of the slide and a red felt heal . If I used Amy of the 3 rubber heals that come with the shoes I'd fall on my face from the rubber grabing the lane .

I'd like to start this post to see how people out there are doing weekly with your High scores - High Set - What place your team is in or any Achievements your earn as the year goes by . Would be interesting to see what Equipment your using as well .

Well i'm off to our Meeting and we start next week! Hope to see some people interested in posting up !
Bowling for the last 5 years after bowling as a child. Average in two leagues around a 210. Bowled a 735 last week and a 690 last night. All hammer equipment. just bought the Arson two weeks ago, what a great ball. Currently have nine balls, all drilled up differently with different cover stocks and the block in different locations. Although I'm competetive I still like to toss back beers on my bowling team. I bowl with a group of guys in one league and a mixed league on Saturdays. I am the lowest average in both.LOL
