This sounds like fun!
My 12-YO son and I bowl every week in a local Junior/Adult league, so I'll post for both of us. My name is Dave, and his is Hal. Glad to meetcha.
My average is 140, and his is 98. We're supposed to bowl tomorrow morning (if we're not snowed in), so I'll be able to update right away.

Is anybody out there?
Kidlet: 114 153 135
Me: 117 165 96
She had the high average for the day, but I had the high game-- and bowled my second turkey!
So, is anybody else still bowling?

Only bowled twice this month, because of the bowling alley's short hours between league seasons.
Me-- 214!!! (lifetime high, first 200+ game) 146 123
Kidlet-- 142 105
Me-- 121 100 134
Kidlet-- 135 98 120

Final March scores
I had my choice today between a 12 pound ball, heavier than I've been using, or a 10 pound ball that.. well, I could actually feel things shifting inside as I handled it. Yuck! So I ended up bowling a 96 and a 104.
Kidlet made a 134 and 122. (And the cute boy in her bowling class gave her a stuffed dragon!) Current Mood: okay

Update for brittanyaliera
Brittany bowled 41 and 36 after bowling a game on bumpers to get her warmed up. It also helped there were kids next to us bowling without bumpers so she could see that -other- kids did it just fine. And she had more fun than usual, since she had another little girl to talk to.
Scores, and a milestone!
Finally got out to go bowling today. (Yay for half-empty bowling alleys on holidays.) I did pretty horrible in the first game - at four frames I had a whopping 8 pins. I managed to salvage the game, however, and ended up right on my average, a 78.
Second game I passed my record of 95, and blew past my goal of having a 100 point game to finish with a 106. Pathetic, I know, but it's taken me a really long time to get here. Been bowling since ... January?
Third game I came out with a 83, which I was happy with. If I could more consistently stay above 80 I'd be happier.
So, 78-106-83 for March. I really hope I get to bowl more often next month.

Kidlet and I actually got to bowl together on 3/17, since her class wasn't meeting.
Kidlet: 146 161
Me: 82 106 (ouch-- was still recovering from being sick)
Back to our normal bowling at opposite ends of the alley this week:
Kidlet: 133 113
Me: 110 160 117
Obviously consistency is not my middle name!

And they're off....
no, no, wrong sport.
Kidlet and I bowled our first games for March. I bowled 116 and 123; very erratic. Picked up a 4-7-10 split, and a 1-2-7-10.. but also threw my first gutter ball of the year, and an embarrassing number of 1's and 2's.
Kidlet bowled both better and worse than me, with a 140, a 138 and an 88!
The desk clerk at the alley chatted with me a bit today; by next week I'll be a regular.
So... how's everyone else doing? Current Mood: okay

I'm posting a 77 average for the first month of competition. Still haven't broken 100 in a game, but my bad shots are getting better, so here's hoping. :)

I went bowling yesterday, and astonished myself by throwing a strike with my very first ball, after several years! Hoped I could bowl again today, but my hand is a bit stiff, so I'll have to base my average on just two games-- 131 and 119, for a 125 average. Coincidentally, kidlet's also posting an average of 125. Go team! Current Mood: silly

and I decided we should get a few games in yesterday because we hadn't been bowling in over two years. Our averages at the end of the league were 138 and 124, respectively. And yesterday? Our averages, over three games, came out to 135 and 124 (and we're submitting those to this league).
Not that really shows how I
did yesterday. Dan's games were all around his average. Mine were... well... not. The first game I was really discouraged cause I bowled an 80. Ugh. The second game, I was flying high because I bowled a 164. And the third game... I was brought back down to earth by bowling 123. *chuckle*
So there you have it. Two years away, and I still bowl the same crap I always do. :) Current Mood: amused
