The only time I would bowl 12 games would be in a tournament! That's insane lol. I quit this year due to some back problems and wanting to spend more time with my wife/son on Friday nights. Never got my 300, which is sad considering I averaged 214 for a decade.... Always choked in the 9th or 10th!
Wow...you've been bowling a long time!! I've only been bowling for 3 years and my son got me started! He started asking me to take him and I always say yes..LOL....now I am hooked! I open bowl with my son every weekend, and we average 30 games each every weekend! We only bowled for 3 hours today...hence the 12 games. The most we've ever bowled is 22 games EACH! (it took 5 hours)
12 games is a lite day, and we bowl on a pair if the lane is available. My 11 year old averages 165-175 (10lb ball) over a 15 game set, and I average around 200. It just depends on the lane conditions and where we go. I do plan to join a league, but I'm waiting for when my son no longer wants to bowl with me anymore. When that day comes, I'll definitely join a league to fill the void. For now, I am content rolling 30 games every weekend. We also bowl during the week every so often.
I've made it to the 10th twice with a chance for perfection, but not closed the deal YET! My high is 288. I got the front 10.....then went 8/ to finish.
