    Default ClassyGranny's Scores

    Well, since I did tell Aslan that I would attempt to do better at posting more instead of just reading, I will start by attempting to post my weekly scores for the summer leagues.

    Friday am was the first week of the league, entering average was last summer's same league average of 179.

    Scores - 215, 214, 208 = 637

    We use our entering averages for two weeks, already wondering how my third week is going to be.

    Monday night concludes next week and then we are moving to a Tues night league, starting in the 26th.

    My bowling has been so up and down recently it is like a roller coaster. Last Monday, I bowled a 407 series to come back on Friday with this 637. I'm going to say it wasn't all me. On Tuesday, I took my "go-to" ball to the ProShop for deoiling and refinishing, new finger grips. I think I should stay on a program of 60-75 games and not wait so long next time around. Lesson learned, I hope!

    Wow nice series classygranny. I wouldn't be disappointed in that one myself. Of course I have started off like that to end up regretting it later in the season myself.

    Second week of Friday am league...still using entering average of 179

    170 - 154 - 180 = 504
    While I was considerably under average, wasn't too disappointed as we were bowling on my least favorite pair. And we took 5 out of 7 points.

    Next week - no bowling as they scheduled an event for the entire house. The week after at least I'll have the average down to 190.

    I'm trying to be happy with any series over 500 for the rest of the season. I'll see if that helps…because lately I think I'm putting too much pressure on myself to hit that ellusive 700 and I need to just take things slow and appreciate a consistent, yet improving, 500s/600s series.

    New Tuesday night league...our first night since missing last week. Aargh!

    Games were 157, 179, 159 = 495 YIKES!
    Blaming it on a long day, not bowling in over a week, and trying some of the new things that Mark & I worked on.

    Must need more practice, or more vacation to use just for bowling.

    I've learned ya never use what you worked on in your last lesson unless you've had at least one practice session in between. I never do well when I try to incorporate new concepts into league play without practicing them first.

    Since I don't get to practice much anymore, I was determined not to fall back into bad habits I wanted to break, so I went for it...and paid the price.

    Friday am started some of the same...159, then a 186, managed a clean third game of 225, for a 570 to hold my established average of 190 - ? YIKES....can I hold that for 13 weeks? And then, if I do, I will expect myself to hold that thru the coming fall. Time will tell.... - But, I won't sandbag, EVER, even if the 190 average scares me!

    Hey...I'm not saying I haven't done it. When you think you have an "a-ha!" moment...you get excited and try to put it to use. Absolutely.

    And I'm right there with ya. In my Wednesday league I average 191...19 pins higher than I've ever averaged in a league. And each time I look up and see < 20 pins handicap it scares the poo out of me. Suddenly I miss 4-5 spares and I'm costing my team points.

    Tuesday evening league...established last week at a very weak 165 average,

    187
    180
    191
    for 558 series - 63 pins over average, but only 18 pins over goal average of 180.

    4 opens, 17 spares, and 10 strikes with a lowly 8.9 first ball average. Glad I had lots of spares and should have had less opens, but the strikes were rather scarce. Felt good the games were consistent...something that has been lacking lately, among a few other things.
