    Another good week.

    279/214/234 = 727. Second week in a row with a 279. Second week in a row starting (and finishing) with the Phaze III. The bonus to last night was we bowled the blind, so if the lanes were to go to hell, we only had ourselves to blame. Not the case, as the shot held all night. Maybe moved 2-3 boards during the whole night. Only opens were a 6-7 split (much deserved), and a chop on a 2-4-5. One of my teammates hit 750+ for the 3rd week in a row. Staying in 1st place since season split feels good. Average now up to 216.

    Tough sledding tonight.

    214/200/204 = 618. Could not get my feet right tonight, and on top of some sketchy lane conditions (as reported from every pair in the house...), it showed. Biggest game I saw thrown was a 234 by my teammate, and he surround that with a couple of 170's. Ball just did not want to finish on our pair. Two pairs over, and they couldn't keep it off the nose. I had 6 opens, 2 splits and 4 WTF's. Need to be better than this. Average 215.

    Nothing special,

    210/227/194 = 631. Rattled off 3 to start, then boom, a 3-4-6-7-10 (Remember this number). Strikes fell off after that. Game 2 was better on strikes, but still couldn't put them in bunches. Game 3? 9/spare, 3 in a row, and boom, the 3-4-6-7-10, again. Wheels were off after that. Never really felt like I had any command of my game last night. Need to get better before city tourney comes in February. Average stays 215.

    No bowling for me this week, out of town for work training. Tried to pre-bowl on Sunday, but walked in and the place was like Chucky Cheese. 10 less than average, so I "shot" a 615.

    Not my favorite night...

    211/165/188 = 564. 1st game wasn't bad (clean), but still struggling with finish. Started 2 with a double, and then the wheels came off. 4 opens in that game, all splits. Had utterly no control of my game, complicated by a roughly 3 board spot to hit. Outside, and it's through the nose. Inside, you'd be lucky if it touched the nose. Same issues across the house, with only the straight-ball folks not saying anything. One of the kids behind the counter stated that the oiler is in absolute disrepair, and it would appear he's not concerned with fixing it. My hunch is the MA-USBC may have something to say about that when city tournament starts tomorrow, at this house. One lane had a visible puddle that the maintenance guy tried to wipe up (not on our pair). We came to this house 3 years ago because it had a reputation for being well taken care of, but the past year says different. Average slinks back to 214.

    Ugh - I feel your pain. Our house has two machines, neither of which seems to be consistently working.

    A somewhat better night.

    203/237/183 = 623. Lanes seemed like they could have been oiled by a machine that actually worked. First game was marred by a Big Four (remember this....) on my first ball, and then a missed 10. Got my wits back and settled in, but damage done. 2nd game clean. 3rd game was all operator error. Just did not have command. Two more Big Fours, and another whiffed 10 pin, and you get picture. I'm told by a guy that bowls on Thursday that they may have gotten the oiler fixed, remarkably just in time for the city tournament to start this weekend. I'm reasonably sure there would have been consequences had they not. Average falls to 213.

    Milwaukee City Tournament, doubles/singles

    Doubles - 191/228/210 = 629

    Singles - 190/169/202 = 561

    Word of the day? Carry. Or lack thereof. 6 games I logged 11 10-pins, 4 9-pins, 3 4-pins, 2 7-pins, and 2 pocket 7-10's. If we'd have kept track, I'd put the number of 10 pins between 6 bowlers at 40 or higher through 6 games. We bowl league in this house, and 19/20 or notorious for this, but never have I seen it this bad. I was good with ball selection and moves, staying in the pocket all day, but that carry, and a number of whiffs cost me. Hoping teams goes better today.

    Day 2 of city, team event. Much better day.

    227/257/240 = 724. Little shorter pattern today, which favors my game. Started with the Phaze, and it never left me cold today. Only blemish on the day was a whiffed 7 pin to start game 2. Finished both 2 and 3 with 6 in a row. Felt in command all day, and only had one shot that missed the pocket (through the nose, but got lucky and only left the 3-6). I wish every day was like this.

    Nice bowling! How did the rest of your team do?
