    Well this post was much older than I realized....pre elbow surgery, pre eye surgery, and pre foot surgery.

    Since I said I was bowling "poorly" and a few others have posted scores, I will try and keep up as well.

    Bowling 3 summer leagues, all morning leagues. 2 are 9-pin no tap. Fridays are USBC competition.

    Tues - women trio's 9-pin no tap:
    05/10 - 200, 221, 199 = 620
    05/17 - vacation
    05/24 - 192, 209, 158 = 559
    05/31 - 198, 196, 180 = 574
    06/07 - 140, 157, 187 = 484
    06/14 - 186, 159, 212 = 557
    average @ 186

    Wednesday, Mixed trios - 9-pin no tap
    05/04 - 235, 202, 156 = 593
    05/11 - 211, 242, 277 = 730
    05/18 - vacation
    05/25 - 156, 206, 211 = 573
    06/01 - work
    06/08 - 156, 222, 206 = 584
    06/15 - 223, 141 - had to leave
    average @ 203

    Friday - Mixed Four
    05/27 - 168, 151, 159 = 478
    06/03 - 138, 164, 133 = 435
    06/10 - 170, 159, 161 = 490
    Average @ 163

    It looks like, at least in this league, your first game is usually your best, the second is your worst and the last is a bit better but still significantly less than the 1st. Iím guessing this is a transition issue, or could it be something else?

    John, interesting isn't it.

    Funny thing, the first game I am extremely distracted due to being secretary/treasurer. Answering questions, counting money, etc. Usually finish at end of first game. My teammates are thinking once I start paying attention, I bowl worse. Don't believe it.

    Think it's more transition. I am slow in seeing the transition and moving. It seems I chase it all second game. Then the third game, I seem to chase less, as we have learned that we now have to go back right. Many of us are transitioning that way - it defies all that I know about bowling, but moving more left just isn't working during the third game.

    Going to try and make a bigger transition move during the second game instead of just dinkying around with it. It's a summer league - time to experiement.

    Thanks for the insight!

    Tues women's 9-pin no tap

    06/21 - 182 - 241 - 175 = 598
    Better, not great.
    Felt better, but timing still a bit off.

    Funny thing - I'm anchor on this team. Haven't played there in many years as my major teammate averages 200, so she is always anchor. I'm happy just throwing one frame at a time. Today's second game I knew was close. Double and 7, to win the game by 1. I really need to practice my "stress" frames. Ugh.

    Wed Mixed Trio - 9 pin no tap

    154 - 199 - 234 = 587
    We only won 1 game. I had 8 opens (5 in first game). Could not find any line that would be consistent.
    Finally went way outside in 5th frame of 3rd game and was able to get lucky to strike out.

    With the heat and the "summer" oil, I am struggling to find anything that is consistent. Including me...I'm hot, the air conditioning comes on, it cools off. Then it's hot. Then I sweat. I swear I spent more steps going to the ladies room to wash my hands than I did bowling. I hate humidity!

    Well, mostly - but I still sweat. AND, it is monsoon season so more humidity - might be up to 18% today/tomorrow. AND, it might rain (for about 5 minutes).

    We have the same problem in Vegas. The humidity is so rare, that when it does show up, buildings air conditioning is totally unprepared for it. Add to this that they usually end up shampooing the carpeting in the bowling center right in the middle of monsoon season. There have been many times that I've had to resort to a one step approach because sliding became totally impossible!
