I was lucky enough to bowl in a Senior-Guest doubles tournament with one of the owners of the local bowling alley, and right out of the gate I shot 300. The first 11, ya they were not doubt, but the 12th one, I did feel the nerves and I went right through the nose. Luckily they all fell, very sloppy. But they did all fall.
That makes 5 total 300’s for my career, with 3 of being fully sanctioned, and 2 thrown in practice.
For the 8 games I averaged 222, so that was OK. Us as a team, we didn’t make the cut, there was a lot of good bowlers at this tourney. Onto the next tournament.
