I bowl on the Thursday Night Men’s League at AMF Deltona Lanes. Last night was our first night of league, and I was excited to be back.
Sometimes I wish I was a little more social. I enjoy hanging out with my team, but I am not outgoing enough to go up to other people and talk to them. It’s a shame, because I am friendly, and in the right mix, can be very outgoing.
Enough about that. The first night of bowling itself start out amazing. I just drilled my new [bowlingball value=”6303″/] and really bowled well with it. Even though there were a couple of small mistakes I made during drilling, it still reacted fine.
During practice I tried the NVD and the [bowlingball value=”6102″/]. I often used the Ultra Zone in the first game last season and I wanted to make sure I was comfortable with the NVD before committing to it for a game. By the end of practive I decided to put the [bowlingball value=”6102″/] away for the night.
My first game was awesome all the way until the 10th frame where I made a mistake. I ended up with a 232, even though I had an open in the 10th frame. I was on pace to bowl a 268 until then.
The second game didn’t fare so well. I started the game with the same [bowlingball value=”6303″/], but eventually changed to my [bowlingball value=”5996″/]. I often forget just how much this bowling ball hooks. I ended up with a couple of opens and only bowling a 198.
The third game I used the [bowlingball value=”5996″/] exclusively. The lanes were very squirlly, yet I started strong with 4 strikes. However 3 of them were brooklyns… I couldn’t seem to get the ball to the right of the head pin. Frame 5 was an open frame… 🙁 2 more strikes in frames 6 and 7. So I am still on pace for a GREAT game. Then the unthinkable… frame 8 I throw it in the gutter and don’t convert the spare. I end up bowling a 192 the third game.
Now don’t get me wrong. I am ecstatic have a 207 average in one night. I ended last season with a 181 average. Let’s just see if I can keep up this pace for the whole season. I think I can, I think I can, choo choo…
