Great Night of Bowling: 590

Our bowling team finally took 7 points last night by winning all 3 games on our Thursday Night Men’s League.

I personally made a big change in my approach last night which caused me to play much farther left than I am used to.  But it was a great change.  My bowling ball reaction was so much better than usually.  I was way more consistent and only threw a handful of awful shots.

I started out the first game with my [bowlingball value=”6695″/].  I felt like I was making nice shots, but with a couple of pulled splits, I ended the game with a score of 175.  Like normal, if I don’t like my bowling ball reaction, then I try a different ball in my fill shot of the 10th.

Brian Halstrom helped me choose which bowling ball to change to.  He said I should try the [bowlingball value=”6303″/] on the same line, but stay aggressive.  I did and CRACK, strike.

I stayed with the [bowlingball value=”6303″/] for the final two games, only moving two boards left throughout the games.  The second game I scored a 202, and finished the night with a 213.

Overall, I have to credit the change in my game to moving back about two feet on the approach.  This helped me increase my bowling ball’s speed, but it did more than that.  I believe that it really helped improve my timing, which gave me great ball reaction.

Bowling: First Night of League

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.


First Night of League Canceled

Well, I was all amped up for our first night of league. However it was closed because of Tropical Storm Fay. What an annoying little storm this is.

It has not effected me too much personally, beside knocking down part of my fence. But it just dumping a ton of water and flooding some parts of the state.

I guess I will have to wait until next Thursday to write about the [bowlingball value=”6303″/].

Bowling Vacation

Just Got an Ebonite NVD

Do you want to be envied? (I know, a silly pun)

I just received an [bowlingball value=”6303″/] to drill up for use. I am going to test this bowling ball out on Thursday 8/21/2008. I will write up a review on this later this week.

I am looking forward to this ball that has a perfect scale of 205.7. Here is the description.

Be NVD by all of your opponents!

The NVD has a new core design, Spike Core Version 1A which provides a lower RG, high flare potential and a stronger mass bias rating. Wrapping around Spike Core Version 1A is a stronger version of our Traxion Reactive cover, Traxion Reactive 0.48. This cover has kept the oil absorption rate at 10.1 (the GB #) while increasing the Traxion Factor to 0.48. This increase in the number will allow the NVD to produce a stronger ball in higher oil volume environments. This ball will give you a stronger motion when compared to the Complete NV. Comes out of the box at 4000 Grit Abralon.
