    Mine is 199. [​IMG] Brian Kissinger talked me into signing up for a bowling league last year, and after four months of weekly bowling, I still haven't managed to bowl a 200. [​IMG] Sometimes I think he asked me to join just so I could provide he and the other team members with comic relief - it sure as heck wasn't for my athletic prowess! [​IMG] Still, I usually manage to maintain my average of 129.
    :b Guess that ain't too bad...

    I once got 186 with an AMAZING ([​IMG]) 5 strikes in a row. I was so impressed with myself...that is until I bowled a 108 the next game...and like a 95 the game after that.

    Damn, you bowl just like I do! [​IMG] I got six strikes in a row to get that score of 199. In another game, I got five splits in a row - talk about MAD!

    I think my highest to date is 158. I only go bowling probably once or twice a year. Guess I need some practice!

    236, in junior high and HS, I bowled for about 3 years on leagues, but I've only bowled a few times since. I avg. in the high 170's the last season I bowled, but I was a weird bowler. I could hit 180's all the time, but rarely broke 200, which is a must to be tournament competitive.

    I bowled 3 games in a row back in 1997 - the first time I'd bowled in 6 years. My scores were as follows:

    Game 1 (1 or 2 cups of beer in me): 115

    Game 2 (1.5 pitchers) : 148

    Game 3 (3 pitchers): 178!

    178 is my record. Beer definitely helps.

    254.

    Funny thing is I was half drunk when I did it, I hadn't bowled in about 5 years, and I was bowling with a house ball in Bumblenowhere, Minnesota while on a consulting gig.

    233 when I was in the leagues in HS.

    4 strikes to start...a couple marks, then another 4 strikes in a row.

    I also have a another 7 200 games and a couple state team tournament prizes under my belt. I have my own ball, shoes (Linds--used by pros), and bag. That's how crazy it got!

    I have bowled (3) 300 games in league.

    Here the bowling alley has sponsors that donate money for a 300 game bowled in league, between the 3 I won about $13,000.

    My average is 217

    My highest was during the league play I was in over 5 years ago. I think I bowled a 235. Followed it up with a 190 and a 185 I believe. Best three game set I've ever bowled.

    I consider myself to be the worst male league-bowler on the planet. My average is right around 140 (I'm always just about the lowest in every league I've played in) and my best game ever was a 199. I was thrilled with the score at the time even though I only took 8 pins in my open 10th frame. Oh so close to that 200 game...[​IMG]...and haven't come close again since.

    Just a couple of weeks ago, I went bowling for the first time in years. Back in HS [86-89], I bowled pretty regularly. Well the first game was horrible, and the second started off pretty medicore as well. Then I figured out I wasn't using my trailing leg properly [to balance me out on release]. I ended the 10th frame with three straight strikes, to get to a 168 for that game. Then I reeled off another 5 straight to start the next game [8 sraight in all]. My last game was a 223.

    I think I need to go back.

    245 but you knew that. It was an amazing one time deal. Broke 200 a few times since but never close to that magical 245.
