Crushing Josh in bowling right now.

The last time I bowled was on a business trip to Trollhatan Sweden this Spring. Something seemed cool about bowling in a foreign country.

He was lying, he got his arise kicked

We went to Brighton Bowllast night. He doesn't bowl in leagues, but I bowl in one at striking lanes. My average is down to 190 due to a number of changes. It gets depressing lol

Pejarox7620 11-04-2012 06:10 AM

I used to bowl all the time, its been 5 years since i've been in league. I think my book average is 198 from what i remember, but i could be wrong. Currently using a Black Widow Nasty

Josh611 01-27-2013 02:29 PM

Shot a 288 last night. Pretty mad about that.

Anyone have any success lately?

race774 01-27-2013 02:33 PM

I bowl in a Friday night league. It's 32 weeks long - split in 2 halfs.

Average is 201. Not much else to do during a long Buffalo winter.

rcgdodge 01-29-2013 07:31 PM

I bowl, I have 3 300 games to my credit. No 800 series yet, highest is 792!

fsu2007 01-29-2013 07:40 PM

I use to work at a bowling center. Haven't bowled in league for about 5 years but have (3) 300 games, (2) 299, a 298 and a high series of 803 all in league. I have a bunch of rings somewhere in my night stand lol

Josh611 02-03-2013 09:02 PM

Havent bowled in a league in like 6-7 years. When i did, i started off with 1 of the cheaper start up kits (bag, ball, shoes) for like $150.

Ive never really been a fan of using all fingers, so decided to try "tips". Still i only use 2 fingers to this day.

Also for whatever reason once i started getting "serious" with my own equipment...i decided to use reverse spin. It looks awkward for the most part, but was effective for me. Especially since i could bowl "both ways" to pick up spares when needed.

Unfortunately i didnt bowl for so long, i kinda forgot i had my own equipment..ended up leaving it in my trunk during the winter...not good lol

my 4 year old daughter seems to love to bowl, so was thinking about picking up another starter kit with tax $$

The only thing bad about throwing a back up ball is that it is exremely bad for your wrist. I remember trying to do it last year with 2 hands and ended up breaking my finger lol.

hester72598 02-04-2013 02:44 PM

I have been bowling for most of my life. My highest game is a 296 and my average is a 218

BAMBAM 02-04-2013 02:48 PM

Best thing about bowling is you can drink while you're doing it and burn off some of the calories. :)!

jeeptrader 02-05-2013 01:14 PM

Just came across this thread...love bowling. Have 23 sanctioned 300s....12 800s. Bowled professionally for 4 years til I blew my left knee out but still bowl a ton! If anyone is interested, I have a sweet thread in the "other sports singles sales thread" with a bunch of nice bowling autos for sale.

Shot a 264 with my new ball earlier. Probably the best I have bowled in awhile. Not score wise but accuracy and shot wise. I buried ever shot besides one that went wide. I also bowled another fake 300 today:)! Lol

Sushiyoshi 02-14-2013 09:41 PM

I used to bowl a lot about 15-20 years ago. Average was around 170. Still have my ball, bag, and shoes.

Ajax1723 02-14-2013 11:48 PM
