Being just a city tournament, I think I only got 400 last year... Paid 65 to get in I believe...

Other tournaments; I've won anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000...

Not a great payout. But better than nothing. Your having fun is the main thing.

This tournament is no fun without beer... The others are pretty serious... No alcohol then...

But; the tournament in Springfield come April is a big tournament... That's about the only serious tournament that we will cut up and have afew...

I love bowling... Love traveling to tournament after tournament...

Sometimes I do OK --- sometimes I might as well stayed home...

I wish I could do it more then once a week. I wonder how good I would be if I could do it a little more.

Honestly; I'm getting burned out bowling that much... I love it --- but sometimes I think it just makes a person confused... In one league your average might be 225, and in another it's 190... And both leagues are bowled at the same place on the same lanes...

This coming September, I'm going to only bowl one league and do tournaments...

I have a 207 average, only bowling once a week. Their land conditions seem to change drastically every three weeks to keep it interesting.

In the last 4 years, I've gone between 215 to even 247... BUT; the 247 wasn't my final average... Been in the 200's the last several years, so I can't really complain...

I had a 256 or so after 5 weeks of bowling a couple years back. That was just sick.

In the heat of the night
You went and blackened my eyes
Well now i'm back
I'm back
I'm back
And i'm comin' your way
Well now i'm supercharged, might just explode in ya face
I'm black
I'm black
I'm black
And i'm burnin' with hate

Knock'em dead kid
(knock'em dead)
Knock'em dead kid
(knock'em dead)
The blade is red kid
Knock'em dead

A star spangled fight
Heard a steel belted scream
Now i'm black
I'm black
I'm black
Another sidewalks bloody dream
I heard the sirens whine
My blood turned to freeze
You'l see the red in my eyes
As you take my disease

(Repeat Chorus)

I remember coming back from rotator cuff surgery and starting out with a 267... That lasted about 2 weeks...

I would be happy with a final average between 215-220...

For the amount I bowl I would take 210, but normally have to settle for 200-205. Oh well.

Like the 522 I bowled a couple weeks back?

Man that was painful. 10 pin, 10, 10, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, solid 7-10... Just no love at all.

Oh man --- the 10 pins where I bowl must be glued to the floor also... I've had series like that also...

It just leaves you scratching your head from bowling a 700 the week before...

I went bowling today for the first time in about a dozen years, and for (I think) the second time in my life. I got an 85 in my first game and a 105 in my second game. I'm what you would call a natural athlete.

I think in my very first league --- my average was 125... I threw a house ball as straight and hard as i could...

Spares were out of the question !!!!

What a difference 25 years later and a few thousand dollars worth of balls will do...
