As far as my own early season is concerned, it has shown a lot of promise. I fell onto a team with the Geddes family, Bob along with his parents, Steve and Joan, and, with Bob, one of the best bowlers in the league, it’s another situation where I don’t necessarily have to carry the team, so I’m leading off in the lineup, which kept the Move To Strike name.
I’ll link some of the BowlSK sheets to give everyone a sense of how well this season has been going so far compared to recent ones:
I got my first 200 game out of the way early, in the second game of the first week. The shot is quite different this year, with a little more oil on the front part of the lane. This means the ball has plenty on the back end for the 10 when I make a good shot.
This may have been my most consistent week of the five that I’ve bowled (I missed one for a Brockton High School Alumni Association event), but it was a shame that I couldn’t finish it out for the 600.
This was a week when I needed to shoot spares to keep my average, and that’s what I did. My score only went down by a pin each game (so maybe this was more consistent than Week 2?).
And I’m only showing this one because of the big first game, which was my best in a couple of years. I think I still should have had a 600 out of it, but my slide (left) foot was just too sore by the end of the night. Averages and such follow:
Average (15 games) 179
Average for last 9 games: 176
Tonight’s AVG+1 score: 545
As far as standings are concerned, Move To Strike was in 3rd place going into last week’s bowling, two points behind We Got This and a half-point behind Lundin Fog for 2nd place. We went 1-3 last week vs. Spare Us, so we should still be somewhere in the upper half of the standings.
For high scores, Ricky Chan had a 277 game Week 2 (Sept. 15) and Shawn Coles had a 762 series last week (Oct. 13).
