I definitely felt better out there tonight, particularly in the first game, with my full sister, who’d never seen me as a real bowler, on hand for moral support. I maybe should have been over average tonight, but a bad third game, in which I wasn’t making spares, cost me that.
Average (81 games): 180
Average for last 9 games: 170
Next week’s AVG+1 score: 576
Composite average (150 games): 181
Kathy made a lineup change in the week I missed, with Tom and Si swapping spots, and the change seemed to help everyone, as I was the only one under average tonight. I do need to make special mention of Tom, who had 289-205-254 for a 748, with the game and series both personal highs.
As for the points, we crushed the first game (1,186 with handicap), but lost the other two by a total of just 34 pins for a 2-2 split. Series was 3,239 with handicap, and I don’t remember any of my teams with that high a total for one night.
