    Any Bowlers out there?

    Attention bowlers!

    How often do you bowl? Average? Sanctioned High Game? Sanctioned High Series?

    I am curious to see how many bowlers are on here. Plus I am a little frustrated... I just got home from bowling a 299 and all I am getting is freakin medal. What happened to the ring for a 299?

    Anyway I will start this off.

    I bowl 1-2 times a week. Average is 212. High Game in League 299. High Series in Leage 766.

    I use to be on a league years ago. I rolled a 16lb fingertip Eurethane Hammer. Had a high of 257 once. I was never consistent. But I had alot of fun. Now my family and I love to play bowling on the Nintendo Wii
    I kinda want to get back into it and get me a Black Widow. if I could only get my tendonitis to heal

    Black widow is a good ball. I throw a Ebonite NVS. Before that I threw the Angular One

    Congrats on the 299....It is a shame they dont do a ring anymore for that.

    I am very proud of my 800 series ring (290,257,259) . That was back in 1992 when scores werent near as high as nowadays. I still remember the feeling of not being able to miss. If memory serves me correctly on the 257 and 259 I had 10 in a row to close out after two opens.

    I have not bowled in a leaugue in more than 14 years. I took my daughters out a few months ago and with a house ball rollled 224,255 (surprised the shit out of myself).

    I had more than 15 balls and three pairs of shoes @ one point. Bowling helped me pay for my first townhouse. I was 18 and actually budgeted in how much I needed to win while gambling to make ends meet.

    Now that they dont allow smoking in the alleys near me I may have to start up again.

    Thumbs up

    I try to bowl once a week. High game of my life (42) is a 296 2 months ago. Perfect game until the 10th frame. Average is 202. I change balls like I change shoes. I just bought 2 new ones so I will let you know after the weekend how goes it.

    I just recently started bowling again. Wanted to get back into it, so I joined a league. Used to have an average of about 200, but now I'm down to a 150-160. I bought a Roto-grip Cell a couple weeks ago that I'm still trying to get used to, but I like it. It breaks hard and pushed through good once it hits the pocket. My high game lately is a 246, I have league tonight and I usually go on Sundays when they have 3hrs for 10 bucks.

    I bowled 300 when I was 16. High series was 748 I think . Avg. was 216. I stopped at the end of last season because I was sick of getting front 6 or 7 or 8 every week but never shooting 300. Also, I bowled for money last summer so I couldn't go back to "juniors," I had to go adult and didn't feel like competing at that level. I have a 299 game as well..I have a 16 lb. hammer toxic sitting here blank and will have to get it drilled soon. I also bowled on TV twice for a local tournament that goes on every week. Went to the international finals as a "handicap" bowler in 2003 as a 13 yr. old with my big 155 avg.

    High score is a 202 and it will never happen again. I bowl as most college guys do, with beer. I do have an 18lb. ball that could break my arm if I tried to throw it all night long. I don't think they make 18 lb balls anymore, I've never seen anyone else with one.

    I don't think I have ever seen an 18# ball. Right now my league average is a little lower than it normally is. I tend to carry about a 220 average. I have someone looknig into sponsoring me in the ABT. I am thinking about it, but I don't really have the time to do it. I am tryin gto decide on that one now.

    I have a pair of 300's and few 290's games, but this was my first 299 in league play.
