    Default First night with new team

    Had alot of fun. We won 2 of 3 and total pins. We had 3rd highest team scratch game (1047 and also had a 1043), 2nd highest team scratch series (3028), highest handicap game (1194 and had an 1190) and tied for highest handicap series (3469).
    I rolled a 619 with a book average of 191 so did my part...lol. New teammates were alot of fun. Looking forward to this season.

    EDIT: I already knew these guys having bowled against them for the last 3 or 4 years but haven't 'hung out' with them until now. I was already confident that we would have a good time together

    Not quite as good tonight. Yeah we were on my worst pair and it may be psychological but we all struggled, even the other team. Lanes were very dry and balls were just rolling out. Left a ton of 7's. Spares were tough too. And we only had 4 bowlers so had to take a 30 pin per game hit there. We lost the first 2 but won the last and lost total pins to go 2-5 tonight. Team was still fun but they were all frustrated with bowling bad. We bowled one of the higher average teams in the league and they rolled 627, 522, 608, 606 and 620. Doesn't look bad but 4 of those guys have 200+ averages and 2 are closer to 215. Our team had 528, 474, 549 and 604. Our blind score has a 213 average so we got 183/game for him. We lost game 1 by 109, game 2 by 21 and won game 3 by 25. On to next week

    So I love this new team but we are getting screwed here...lol. 3 of the first 4 weeks we have bowled top 5 teams (13 teams in the league). And next week we bowl the highest average team in the league. So 4 of the first 5 weeks we are getting hit hard. Statistics say that at some point we should run into an 'easier' stretch....lol

    Week 1: 12th place team
    Week 2: 1st place team
    Week 3: 3rd place team
    Week 4: 2nd place team
    Next week: 4th place team

    Us: 10th place but we have the 5th highest scratch pin count and 7th highest handicap pin count
    Schedule only goes out that far so don't know who is after that

    So I was wrong. We bowl the other top team next week. This week we bowled a team that is pretty close to us in terms of ability, etc. We won all 3 games. The other team really struggled. We were on the end pair and they were playing different from each other. If I hadn't seen my scores I'd have thought I may have rolled about a 520-540. Ended up I had a 595 so that was good. Had to really adjust all night and salvaged a decent night. Also went 3/3 on 7 pins but missed a bunch of multi pin spares that I shouldn't have.
