Last 5 leagues nights:
Series - 718, 727 (300), 837 (300), 709, 733 (300)
Low game - 201
Average gain - 6.5
Team - 12W - 4L

It had been 3+ years since my first 300, so to throw 3 in a 4 week span has
me scratching my head. I do know that I've been trying to keep the 700
streak going, so grinding out the third game has really kept me focused.
I'm just hoping to avoid an ugly "crash and burn" when this hot streak ends.

WOW, where do you bowl? Are there a lot of people scoring like that or did
you change something in your game? Or a new ball, or?????? Even so, that's
some pretty good shooting whatever happened.

Thanks! 24 x 5 team league in PA - top average 229, 5 over 220. There have
been about 10 x 300s in the last month. The lanes are synthetic, new lane
machine last fall, so the shot has been more consistent pair to pair, but
changes week to week. In fact, the night of the 837 was very different - I
moved in and played the tightest line of the year as there was more oil
outside, and carry down made it worse.

The only thing I have changed recently is quitting a high stress, lousy
hours job - averaging about 240 since! Ball is a Storm Ragin' Banshee, 15# -
purchased in 2005. I guess coming in without a headache and sleep deprived
has improved my ability to focus.

there's less than 5 300's a YEAR in my house. Congrats on your scores
but it sounds to me like you're bowling in a stacked house.
