    Tuesday's scores.

    193/197/202 = 592. Yep, another not-so-proud night. This one was ALL operator error. Never got comfortable in my own shoes. Felt wobbly, likely due to 2.5 hours of snow removal (we got 14" of the white death), but that's no excuse for some of the dumb crap I was doing. 4 opens--3 splits, one chopped 6-10. Longest string on the night was three. I'm honestly not sure I hit the same spot twice. No excuses, I flat out sucked last night. Average clicks back to 208.
    Old guy with power (15.5-16; 325). Current arsenal--Storm Phaze III, Storm SureLock, Storm IQ Tour Nano and Motiv Rebel tank (spare/dry). High sanctioned game - 299. High sanctioned series - 772. A.V. 300-s - 8. Longest string - 19.
    2020/2021 YTD highs--High game; 279--High series; 729

    Tuesday's scores.

    216/237/236 = 689. Never let it be said Timmy doesn't pay attention. Noticing that polished solid seemed to be better at this house than pearl, I pulled out the SureLock and put a polish back on it. If it wants solid, give it a beast. Good results. 2 opens (chopped a 3-10, and missed my first 10-pin in over 4 weeks). I was a little disturbed by the abnormally high amount of 10-pins I left (10). Usually it's only 4 or 5 a night. The ball seemed to be able to find the pocket from just about anywhere. Plus, I got a little entertainment as well. One of the guys on the other team was chiding me for using a spare ball to pick up ten pins, so I grabbed the SureLock and shut him up. Open mouth, insert foot. Average 209.

    Boy Blunder strikes again.....

    235/156/226 = 617. They really gotta get rid of this kid they have working Tuesdays. Seems like every other week, he has "issues" with the machine, and ends up mangling 2 or 3 pairs. Yes, I made the right adjustments, but the second game was uncontrollable. I'm a firm believer in being able to make adjustments, but when it's just a plain house shot, you shouldn't be 8-10 boards from one lane to the next. Call it what you want, but that's just crap. This isn't a challenge league. It's 10% THB's, and a bunch of regular Joes and Betties, who just want to have a good time. If I had wanted to stay in an unfriendly scratch league, I would've stayed where I was.

    I wouldn't think once set up that the oiling machine is not that hard to run from lane to lane. Some machines you don't even have to move it from lane to lane it does it on it's own. Still not that bad of a night considering the middle game you had. I am like you it's just for fun and I don't get upset about it. Steve
    Current arsenal...Roto Grip Nuclear Cell, Hustle PBR, Rubicon UC2 and Own It Spare. 300 rev rate, 16 mph off hand, 13.3 tilt,61 degrees rotation pap 4 9/16 over 1 1/8 up.

    We always have fun, it's just frustrating when this bozo keeps making the same mistakes. Near the beginning of the league, they had another guy doing this, but he quit, and the owner never replaced him. From what I gather, it's pretty much the only job he thinks the kid is capable of, and he's not. Should have seen the night he didn't check the switch, and put out like a 45'+ pattern....

    Talked to a guy at our league the other night and asked him about this tournament he bowled in. He said they set the machine up to only oil like every other board? Not sure I buy that story. Anyone ever heard of that?
