My Best Days on the Lanes - 2011

January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011

Columbia Momentum Bowling Ball

High Performance

What makes for a good day continues with the same standards that I used in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Those standards are even more difficult this year because of the pain in my legs and certainly if I could achieve the 250 game, 700 series and 220 average on a very regular basis I would certainly achieve a standard that is truly competitive with the better bowlers of today.

My achievements in 2010 were hardly worth mentioning but I did have a 277 game early in the year. The return to bowling will require much less bowling from me if I am indeed able to bowl at all. Sometime in February of 2011 I will try to bowl. The layoff seems longer that my layoff of more than 4 decadess

My achievements for 2008 were 100 games of 250 or better of which 25 were better than 275.  I had 36 series of 700 or better of which 10 were 750 or better and there were 35 session in which I averaged 220 or better of which 2 were 235 or better.  There is certainly room for improvement in 2010 but nothing ever happened as the leg pain stopped me from bowling.  It was a good sign that things seemed on the improve when I bowled a Sanctioned 300 game on March 5, 2009. I bowled 300 again on July 10, 2009 and still remain hopeful that I will bowl 300 again and have an 800 series to add to my modern day resume.  I have highlighted the special achievements of games over 275, series over 750 and sessions with an average of 235 or higher.  I am also keeping running track of achievements numerically as the year  progresses by putting the number of the 250 game or 700 series or 220 average day in parenthesis.  Injuries have created physical issues that had given 2010 a very slow start followed by my stoppage of bowling.

Although I look forward to improving on my bowling with the benefits of some weight loss and increased physical fitness providing benefits to my game, I have come down with knee & elbow problems. My game had suffered terribly as 2010 began. I was hopeful that things would straighten out some as the year progressed.

As 2010 wore on my legs began to bother me even more and by a little later in the year I stopped bowling. I am planning to return to the lanes by August of 2011 and see if my legs are pain free enough for me to resume bowling.
