Yesterday night: 167-190-186 I wasn't enough to adjust in the games. 1st game used Sure Lock, 2nd game purple urethane and 3rd game Hy-Road. I didn't find a mark to hit in the pocket.

Time for one month vacation and leave on Dec 19th and back on Jan 23rd, 2019. I will bowl in Singapore and Udon Thani, Thailand with my girlfriend Nee.

Been struggling to score the last few weeks. Hitting pocket wasn't an issue, but carrying was. One week I think I had 15 ten pins. Decided last night to take my new Intense Fire out of my bag. It hooks quite a bit and I wasn't using it anyway. Grabbed my old Blue Vibe out of my closet. Got to bowling a few minutes early and stopped in the pro shop. I went to a tournament a couple months back and had the Vibe in my back seat. Forgot about for a few days and it rolled around a bit an was a little dirty looking. Had the guy just do a quick clean up on. He had it little duller than I like, but it had a nice fresh surface. Anyway I used it and went 194-300-237. It's been a while, but I finally got my 10th one.

Universal Lanes. Thinking about it over the weekend, I had the front 10 there over 25 years ago with a Burgundy Hammer and left a 10 pin. Kind of a little revenge. I was unbelievably nervous. I really wanted to hit double digits though. Took a nice deep breath before I got on the approach. Took one more as I set up and told myself to just throw it right. I did and it was a no doubter.

Bowled my first complete league set with 15 lb balls tonight.  I had 216 the first, finishing with 5 strikes, 188 the second while we endured multiple equipment malfunctions, and 278 the third because, despite the recurring malfunctions, I was too tired to roll more than one ball per frame.  682 total scratch.  My average going in was 199 so I'm guessing I just hit 200. ( P.S.  For the first time ever we got our standing sheets the same night we bowled.  Most likely because due to repeated malfunctions we finished 45 minutes after everyone else, and the league secretary was sitting waiting for us.  My league average is now 201, making me the 4th highest and also the 4th oldest at 69 almost.)
