Bobby Geddes wasn’t the only one with a variant of his first name who had a 300 at Westgate last night, as Hall of Famer Bob Hamilton had one in the Westgate Mixed league. Bob’s daughter, Stephanie Bourhill, usually gets his videos, and this one is below:
Nice bowling Bob! 🙂
My team was bowling against Livin on a Spare last night, and, in the last game, their anchor bowler, Bobby Geddes, bowled his first 300 game. All I could do was smile at the achievement…WTG Bobby. 🙂
My Week 33 bowling, frame-by-frame
Strikes were elusive after my turkey in the first game, but I did make most of the easy spares, with motivation actually involved in my single-pin miss to end the night. And what might have been my best shot of the night left a Westgate 7-10.
Average (90 games): 167
Average for last 9 games: 146
Next week’s AVG+1 score: 555
Composite average (99 games): 169
Eric was absent, and we won no points.
The BowlSK notes refer to a notable league event, which will be in the separate post that follows.
Shout-out to Kevin Thibeault, who, last night in the Pepsi league, shot his second 290 game in a three-week span. 🙂
Eric, one of my Wednesday night teammates, gave me one last opportunity to sub on his Sunday night team, for which I was a regular member for a couple of years, last night.
My Week 30 bowling, frame-by-frame
My night was really made in the third game, when I made a drastic move out, and a subtle hand position change after leaving a couple of 10s led to a six-bagger to end the night.
Final average (9 games): 191
Composite average (96 games): 169
Team, with my help, won the third game by enough for total and four points, with Peter telling me they hadn’t won more than two points against our opponents all season.
My Week 32 bowling, frame-by-frame
I was pleased to have a 183 triplicate alive after two, but it’s hard to score well when you fall off the virtual cliff, as I had no marks after the 5th frame in the third game.
Average (87 games): 167
Average for last 9 games: 149
Next week’s AVG+1 score: 539
Composite average (93 games): 169
With Si absent, we were assured of his average minus five bowling against the vacant. We barely lost the third game point, but won the other three.
Let’s MixEm Up had to forfeit to Great Balls of Fire, so we’re now in 14th place, 18 points behind Last Empire, who lead by two points over Sweet Rolls and four over Stacked and 10th Frame Magic. We’re bowling for points against the vacant tonight.
It may be time to crown Bill Briggs “King of the (Middle) Road” at Westgate Lanes, because not only did he bowl his second 300 game of the quarter last night, but bookended that with games of 257 and 276 for an 833 set, rare territory for the Pepsi league. Great night, Billy! 🙂
And another one in, this one via Sean Richard: Bill Hill bowled his first 300 last night to go along with the one posted by Shane Litchfield. Congrats! 🙂
Sandi Litchfield posted a Facebook video last night showing her son Shane finishing off a 300 game. WTG!
After winning one point from Tuckin Fenpin, Let’s MixEm Up is in 14th place, 17 points behind Last Empire, who are four points ahead of Sweet Rolls, five ahead of Creeden’s Mustangs, and six ahead of Stacked. My team is scheduled to bowl against Great Balls of Fire tomorrow, but they’ll be without me, as I’ll be at a meeting for a project I’ve helped lay the groundwork for, some of which will be bowling-related.
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen John Kunan put up a big number, but, along with “The Truth’s” 300 game last week in the Westgate Mixed league, Kunan added a 290. Nice bowling!
Adam “Itchy” Johndrow had another 300 in the Firefighters league last night, meaning he’s now gone 300, 299, and 300 in three consecutive weeks. Keep it up! 🙂
I was notified by Rob Young at the end of the night last night that Kevin Thibeault put up a 290 game, which I didn’t see much of. Good bowling, Kev! 🙂
I missed seeing it, but a league source told me Mike Mayo left a 5-7 after the first 11 last night in the Patriots league. Next time! 🙂
Sean Richard posted a video on Facebook that showed Brian Egan bowled 300 last night in Malden for the second time in as many weeks. Nice!
He had one back in January, and Roland “The Truth” Sandefur added a 300 last night in Westgate Mixed. WTG!
Elsewhere in my league, David Chin, a member of the leading Last Empire team, went 266-277-258 for an 801, which was his first 800 series. Congrats!
My Week 30 bowling, frame-by-frame
Probably the less said about this, the better.
Average (84 games): 167
Average for last 9 games: 151
Next week’s AVG+1 score: 527
Composite average (90 games): 169
Nearly everyone struggled to a degree, but we still eked out the second game.
After winning one point from 10th Frame Magic, Let’s MixEm Up is in 12th place, 15 points behind Last Empire, who lead Creeden’s Mustangs by three points, and Stacked and Sweet Rolls by four points. Tuckin’ Fenpin will be the opponents tomorrow night.
Si had the high scratch game and series in the men’s “E” division last week.
Adam Johndrow nearly followed up last week’s 300 with another one last night, but a 10 pin stopped him short. Next time!
It took 27 weeks, but Bill Briggs bowled the first 300 game of the Pepsi league season last night in the second game. Congrats!
As indicated by the final standings, the North Bowl team of Janie Hillman, Jason Smith, Ben Winslow, and Nate Clarke, coached by Lee Winslow, are the champions of the 2018-19 Southeastern Mass. Junior Scratch Travel League. Congrats! 🙂
I saw several reports on Facebook that Ed Miller, a member of my Wednesday league, bowled his first 300 game last night in the Sunday Niters league, which I have been a member of. Congrats! 🙂
There are three generations of the Brown family from around Kingston who bowl as a team in the Patriots league, and, the other night, Hal, the youngest of the three, bowled a 298 game. WTG!
Last night, in the second game, Bill Hill had the first 11, but was stopped by a 2-4-8 for a 297. Next time, Bill! 🙂
Congrats to Adam Johndrow for a 300 game Monday night in the unsanctioned Firefighters league. (For those who aren’t there on Monday, the Pepsi league has the high end, with Firefighters closer to the desk.) Adam told me he’s had seven 300s, but wasn’t sure how many were in the Firefighters league.
Congrats to Brian Egan, who had a 300 last night in the Wednesday night Malden league. Sean Richard, Brian’s teammate, got video, which is below:
My Week 29 bowling, frame-by-frame
I thought I’d try my Alpha Crux last night, and, while I think I need more practice with it, the change to my Tropical Breeze was still better timed than last week from a lane condition perspective.
Average (81 games): 169
Average for last 9 games: 166
Next week’s AVG+1 score: 529
Composite average (87 games): 171
I had my full four-man team back last night, but we only won the first game.
I didn’t know if he did it before, but, last night, in a follow-up on a Facebook post, Sean Richard told me he flagged a 7 pin to start a game, but then followed that up with the back 11 for a 279, the maximum score possible with an open frame.
Nice bowling! 🙂
