    A sad commentary about a person whose goal is to get drunk!

    This doesn't bother me at all as I don't eat or drink while bowling, and I would rather keep bowling than have to sit between frames.

    When I am bowling, that's what I want to do. Not throw a frame and then sit and wait 5 minutes to go again...which is what happens on 5 man teams around here.

    So looks like I got picked up by a pretty good team with a group of good guys. I always enjoyed bowling against these guys as they were fun and just a bunch of nice people. Went through my list last night and sent out some messages and got a response from a couple but this team was the first to say they could use me so it worked out. They will have 7 on the roster now but if you show up you are guaranteed 2 games but I guess they have a few that run into work schedule conflicts occasionally so should work out good. Let's hope for a good year and I have a feeling I'll get my first 300 this year

    So if all 7 of you show up, how do they decide which bowler bowls 3 games and which bowlers bowl 2 games? Do you pay full the full league fee, or do the bowlers that will be sitting changing places split the fees? This seems like too much to deal with...

    Haven't had experience with it in this league but in the past we 'pro-rated' our nightly fees. And we used to do low score sits out but you are still guaranteed 2 games so if a bowler sits out game 1 and is low game 2 then next low sits game 3. But no idea how this team works it or how they determine who sits out game 1. They did say that the 1 bowler will sometimes sit out just so others can bowl. I will play it by ear and find out as we go. I only talked to the 1 guy via text a few times. Their top average guy (the one I was texting) is about a 214 average and 2nd highest having a 204 average. Their lowest average was 173. All 6 of their guys had similar number of games with low man having 67 games and high man having 90 games out of a possible 93 games. I would likely be close to tied for 3rd high average of the 7 on the team. There is another guy at about 195 (I ended last year at 192 but moved up about 5 pins in the last 2 months). I should probably be pretty even with him.
    Actually looking forward to bowling with them. They are usually about a mid standings team but above the cutoff of the lower tier teams like we were....lol. I think we will have a legitimate shot at at least 3rd place in our league. Feeling confident and like I said earlier, these guys are all cool guys that I have always got along with and enjoyed bowling against them (well except when they beat us...lol).
