    Ive got a pending wrist surgery on the docket, so I contemplated not even bothering with bowling this year. However, I decided to move the surgery to January, and bowl half a year.

    We also bowl 4 games at the moment because of the holidays. Last week I went 269-216-233-211=929

    I almost dont want to have the surgery. Ha.

    Its a ton of fun, yet tragically, in southern california, it can get costly, gosh, we have not rocked the bowling alley since we began to golf, going on over a year now, i used to be in a congregation group quite a long while prior, it was enjoyable

    I don't know what has changed but our 1st half just ended and I've done better than I ever have done. Last week a 663 and this week a 705. I also threw an all time high of 776 about week 3. I work swing shift so only bowl about half the time and never practice but avg was 200 before this 705 so it'll go up a few more pins. I'm usually 185-190 guy every year.

    I'm afraid the 2nd half is gonna be a reality check...

    Seeing this thread pop back up is bringing back memories, need to get back out there and see if I still got it.

    Did anyone happen to catch the PBA bowling yesterday on Fox? It was after the 1:00 game, not sure if it's been used before, but they had some cool new tech in place showing the ball speed, spin, which board it was tracking over. Was really neat to see.

    I was going to watch that, but got interested in the Steelers/Saints game and also dozed off for a bit.

    Bumping the bowling thread. LOL!!

    Haven't picked up a ball in about a month and a half, but the month of August I will be getting back in the swing of things in preparation for Fall leagues that start up after Labor Day.

    Looking at 3 leagues this coming year and hoping for a few more honor scores to add to my list of accomplishments. Other goals are to improve 10 pin pick up and increase average a few more sticks.

    One league a week is enough for me. As far as goals? 10 pin efficiency is definitely one of mine as well. I've always struggled with them, but have seen signs of improvement last year.

    Was only planning on one league this season, but was asked to join a scratch league team this fall.
    Not sure I want to commit to both leagues.....

    I've got 1 night a week, handicap league. More of a gentleman's fun league. I also will sub occasionally on a scratch league night. I really dont care for the scratch league though, bunch of big head know it all professional wannabe cry babies. I mostly roll that night for the entertainment value.

    I shot 799 in sweeps for an 820 scratch league with a 157 book average. Sweeps was handicapped at 80% of the highest bowler's average, which was 241. Talk about people crying! I might have deserved some of it though.

    LOL! Why would the league do handicap based off of highest average? They did that to themselves with you shooting 799(with handicap added in I'm assuming).

    Nah the 799 was scratch. 279-241-279. Missed my first 800 series and 2nd 300 game (twice) by 1 stinkin 9 pin. Background on it was I had quit bowling juniors a couple years before. I carried a 200+ average from the time I was about 15. Just before turning 18, I lost interest and quit. Couple years later I got in to a fun league with some friends at a place that never oils. I struggled there badly for 8 weeks and quit. That's where the 157 book came from. When I joined that scratch league, I was already in 2 other leagues, both of which I was carrying over a 210 average. But since the only league I had enough games to establish an average with was the 157 the year before and they don't accept junior averages, that was the average we had to use. The league capped at an 820 book average for the team. And with me at 157, we came in right at 820. Stacked team for sure.

    Wow, yeah a 799 scratch by a 157 book average bowler would have me skeptical as well. LOL!
