I bowl with a teen youth group every two years or so, just to keep limber.

My average is in the low 100s ;\)

Yep, hence the 300 at the end of my username! Headed to Michigan to bowl a tournament right now, as I type!

Bowlers advantage pro shops in Nashville runs a monthly tournament trail that is pretty good.

I got big into it one yr and fell into the wrong way of thinking that having a high $ ball would help me get more pins. I quickly figured out that I bowled the same as I did with my cheap $50 first ball....which was terrible to say the least. Haha. I never broke 200. Got in the 180s several times but never over the 200 mark.

Will do Squiggs. I have bowled well all week and have been bowling quite a bit to get ready for this one. Hope it carries over. 695 for 3 on Monday, 725 Tuesday and 707 last night.

Good deal, that's pretty good for just getting back in to it. Good luck with it. I'm actually going to bowl the Michigan State Tournament. A buddy of mine that I bowl with here in Memphis, is originally from Michigan and was transferred down here through his job with Ford. He would still go back up to visit and bowl the state tourney with his old team. They had a spot come open 4 years ago and he asked me if I wanted to go and I said sure. We made the trek up there and we bowled our doubles event first. I shot 300 my first game right out of the gate and I've been bowling with them every year since. Lol. Last year I had one of my best all event sets ever up in Michigan with 2197 and I finished 10th out of 987 in all events scratch. Averaged 244.11 for my 9 games of singles, doubles, and team events. I've made some good friends up there and look forward to going up and bowling with them Yankees every year. \:D

I used to bowl everyday in High School and did all the time up until a few years ago until my wife and I got married. (I graduated in 2005)
Still go every now and then.

Alright the final talley is in my partner and myself take the money lol me and my partner split $60 for first. it was fun though. I figured scores would be a lot higher than that first 9 pin no tap i ever won with less than a 800. I will do it again

No doubt! Usually takes a high 800 to win no tap. I may holler at you over the summer. My wife is from savannah and they usually run a handicap tourney over the summer that has a doubles and team event. I bowl it every year and have always done well there. Maybe we could hook up and bowl doubles some time if you want.

That's true. Well once you get enough games and get an established average, holler at me if you hear of any handicap doubles tournaments around. I'd bowl with ya.

I bowl some not as much as I use to. My daughter coaches the local high school team. The girl's team done an awesome job this year. Had a undefeated regular season 20-0. Won conference, district and their lone loss was in sub state by 3 pins. Had one girl go to state and she finished up in top 20. She is having a couple of colleges wanting her to come continue her bowling while giving her an education. Very proud on all involved. It is odd how I catch myself thinking that my daughter was listening to some of the things I harped on and at her about when she was younger and to hear her tell the team the same thing now.

Enjoy it,never bowled for money,got a new Ebonite ball for Christmas,dropped down to a 12# ball from a 15.,as I'll be 74 in June.
Never got registered,a lot of friends are, that I bowl with.
Can bowl over 200 now and then,think my high was 232.Average is 136.
Used to set pins when it was mechanical, I was 18 then and in much better shape, the Phillipines,Subic Bay.
It was no problem then to pick up three pins in each hand and load them in a rack on either side and jump out of the way of the ball.
Athens has a fairly nice Bowling Ally, friendly folks.

Yes they did. I worked there for 8 years, working in the back on pinsetters. It's cool to see the 3 phases of remodeling it has gone through over the years I've grown up in that place.

I used to bowl a whole lot. Was pretty good too until I damaged a nerve in my forearm. Took a year to heal. Just started going every now and then again, but I only average around 140 now. Used to average 170. My high game was a 232.
