Bowling is done for the season.
Last week was the last week of regular league. Hunter did make it to state though, so he has one more big weekend in a few weeks.
For as long as I can remember, the last week of bowling is a 8-Pin No-Tap tournament. That means that if you knock down 8 (or 9 or 10) pins on your first ball, it is a strike. Last year Hunter placed 4th in the tournament by getting a very high score and series.
This year, he just might place even higher.
First game – 245 (Holy Cow!!)
Third game – 185 (wow!)
Second game made me want to fall over I was so proud of him and so shocked! He got a 300!! That is a PERFECT GAME! That is 12 STRIKES IN A ROW! Of those 12 strikes, 6 were “natural” strikes, meaning all 10 pins in the first shot.
I am not allowed to stand at Hunter’s lane to watch him bowl, I always seem to jinx him when I do. I usually sit down by Boo and watch from a distance.
This week, Big Sis sat by me, laughing as I almost choked on my cheeseburger (mmm…bowling alley food….). I held my breathe each time Hunter walked the approach, willing the pins to fall down each time they were struck by the ball.
I am so proud of Hunter. He has worked so hard this year, and having 6 natural strikes in a game is pretty amazing. The coach even made him is own 300 Ring, with the date “engraved” and everything.
