    So, we're two weeks into this goal (which will take the rest of the season to complete) and so far we've had:

    189
    194
    Is your average a goal where we can post it under the bowling honor club for you?

    3- Continue to look at success in terms other than score

    4- Regain the confidence I lost over the past few years - If I am successful on 1 and 2, this will be a no brainer

    5- Bowl respectably at Nationals so my team won't put me on waivers for next year

    While I could probably add more, these are the top 5.

    Great goals!!! I hope that you achieve your goals. I believe that short terms goals are great to equal long term achievements. I have faith in you and I hope you keep us posted on your progress.

    Maybe in a couple months. hahahahaha. Our average is cumulative, so I'm not really interested in what the league says I average right NOW (which is 178, IIRC), but hoping to bowl well enough to average a 185 from the time I set the goal, out.

    I'd like to win a PBA regional event. I'm looking forward to picking out the colors on my banner. I may still be several years from achieving that goal, but there it is.

    And here I thought it was to win the scotch doubles with Kat and sweep us all in the Bragging Rights tournament. I don't plan on coming in last again this year!

I figured my average at the lanes, and it came to be a 176-point-something, rounding up to 177 average for the night, which is 8 pins below where I would like to be.... Eh.... I was my own worst enemy tonight. I was too stubborn during that 2nd game.

    So, after 3 weeks (of about a million weeks left before fall season ends):

    189
    194
    177

    3 week average: 186 2/3

    On pace so far, for that 185 average, but I can't have many more nights like this one!
    I bowl on a wednesday night, and with Christmas and New Years BOTH falling on a thursday, I haven't bowled league since December 17th, and boy did it show in that first game.

    Ready for this? My league average is a 177 (as of yesterday, so that 177 I bowled before the Christmas break really DID effect my average), and coming off the break I bowled a NICE 136 for the first game.

    Ouch... The ONLY nice thing is it seemed like I was throwing a good ball. It was hitting it's roll phase right about where it needs to, and my line was decent, things just didn't go well....

    But I kept at it, and in the 2nd game, I bowled a 203 to bounce back! I was pretty happy with that score, UNTIL the 3rd game...

    For the 3rd game, I bowled a 242. That, ladies and gents, is my highest game ever (at least, that I can remember... I am known to bowl drunk on occasion).


    So, we had a 136 - 203 - 242 for a 581 series and a 193 2/3 average.



    So, after 4 weeks (with about a million weeks left before fall season ends):

    189
    194
    177
    193 2/3

    4 week average: 188.4

    Goal: 185


    So far, so good.... (knock on wood)

    Hey, I recognize that name from the PBA boards. Glad to see you're here, and glad you're still with us. I just stopped going to their forum because it seemed like a big waste of time. You were one of the saner posters, and they seemed to be few and far between.
