#17 of my Day Zero Project is to bowl a 200 or higher, something I have never done before. Bowling only once or twice a year makes this task even harder because getting a 200 is no easy task. I might have to frequent the lanes a bit more or hit the thrift store to find some vintage duds to be one with the game.
Mission #1 took place earlier this year.
I only played three games so I guess it wasn’t a mission so much as just playing a few games for fun, but my goal was still to get a 200. My best score was 175 which was an all-time high so I did leave with a new personal best.
Mission #2 – December 27, 2011
Tonight we played 10 games which definitely qualifies as a mission. My scores were 155, 156, 148, 180, 132, 125, 170, 148, 155, 125 for an average of 149.4, a new personal best of 180, but NO 200!
So the quest shall continue. Who knows how long it will take or if I will even get this elusive 200, but I’m going to focus like The Jesus and hopefully good things will happen.
Mission #3 – Some time in June
Cosmic bowling did aid to scoring well
Mission #4 – October 17, 2012
It finally happened, but not without some serious effort. I played four games with friends scoring 145, 150, 155 and 170. They had had enough, but since it was all you can bowl I stayed behind and decided to get my 200. I scored 180 on my first solo game and that got me going. I followed that with a 181, 182, 175, 190 and finally a 202.
