Hmmm.... It looks like I won last week by default!

My scores for this week:
Game 1: 224
Game 2: 143
Game 3: 231
Series: 598
Average: 199
Day bowled: 2/11/2010

I was all over the place this week. Games 1 & 3 were new records for me, and then there was that great collapse in game 2.

Hula hoop injury: I could feel the strain on the inside of my knees, but I ignored it in pursuit of my girlfriend's score because I had no idea it could cause damage to cartilage. Then suddenly I felt this tearing pain in the inside of my left knee. For three months I babied it and RICEd it because I thought it was a muscle issue. When it still wasn't improving I went to my doctor who diagnosed it as a torn meniscus, but needing an MRI to confirm the diagnosis. So watch out if you feel strain on the inside of your knees!

The piriformis is a tiny muscle under the glute, so no RICE. It's truly a pain in the butt!!! LOL!!!

Sorry to hear what happened to you with hula hoop. That really sucks!! I've been doing it for therapy on my back. I will have to be much more careful and not try to break any records. Thanks for the warning!

What and where the heck is the piriformis muscle? How do you treat a pulled one? Is it something you can do RICE on? I hope you're better soon!

I stay far, far away from Hula Hoop and Super Hula Hoop these days. Trying to catch up to my girlfriend's hula hoop score is how I tore the meniscus cartilage in my left knee. Not really repairable, so my knee will never be the same--leading to my current crutches state because I'd put too much weight on my RIGHT leg to compensate for the pain in my left knee. Messed up right ankle, but that should heal if I behave. So. Short story: Hula Hoop bad.

Wow, you did have a great day of bowling! I haven't done the sword play because I pulled my piriformis muscle setting a new record on Super Hula Hoop. I'm just doing simple things until this thing quits hurting. And it HURTS!!!

I'm so glad this is the last week of the bootcamp workout. I'll keep taking ibuprofen until I finish it and can rest my sore butt!

Oh, and bowling with my left arm was great. No stiff neck!

That's wonderful that you were able to get that mildew out! I've had to throw things away. Bleach, and salt & lemon juice treatments... I'll try to remember that.

I saw your scores for this week before I did my bowling today. You did INCREDIBLE!

Have you snuck in any SwordPlay yet? It's still my go-to game when I want to get exercise AND work off frustration or a bad mood. ("Die! Die!") And just how good ARE you with Canoeing? So far my best is 396.3 yards in Expert. I haven't been able to make that 400 yard goal. Yet.

LOL!!! That's encouraging!

I will try the swordplay after my grandson leaves.

I stopped by the used game store today and got Sports Resort and a motion control for my daughter. That birthday present is taken care of!

And I'm shocked, but I did get the mildew out. It took a treatment of bleach, two treatments of salt and lemon juice and another treatment of bleach to get all of the black spots out of that beige tablecloth. Whew! I had matching placemats and napkins for it, so it was a bit of an investment.

Off to do the bootcamp video and I'll bowl tomorrow after my grandson goes home. Not sure I want a two year old trying to bowl. I can visualize a remote bouncing off the big screen. LOL!!!

That sounds like MY first game of bowling! emoticon I didn't have the handicap of curveball pitching--I just sucked. Well, I still do in real life.

I think you should stealth practice Swordplay when your husband isn't around. It's a wonderful stress reliever bashing "ninjas."

I have trouble with fatigue when bowling too--even when I don't have the weight of a ball! And actually, bowling with the off arm afterwards DOES help keep me from getting a stiff neck after bowling--as well as equal arm workout.

Did you get the mildew out of the tablecloth? Did the salt and lemon juice paste work?

LOL!!! In my first ever game of bowling 30+ years ago, I bowled a 17. My whole family laughed hysterically and I stalked out of the bowling alley furious. It was years before I broke 80. I was a fast-pitch softball pitcher and had a wicked curve ball. Not so good for bowling.

Haven't tried the airplane game either, but I'm sure I'll be awful. DH is so good at swordplay, that I'm a bit intimidated to even try it. He hasn't caught up to me in canoeing though. :)

When I bowl it's either spares or open frames. I'm good at picking up spares if they aren't split across the frame. The best I've done is 4 strikes in a row. Part of it is the fatigue factor. My scores go down as I get tired. So I'm not consistent at all. After 3 games, I'm dripping.

DH bowls with the off arm too and he's getting pretty good at it. I'll have to do that also. Maybe I won't have a wicked stiff neck the next day.

Back to laundry. I've been trying all day to get mildew out of a tablecloth. Now I'm trying a paste of salt and lemon juice.

Have a great day!!!

I didn't think Boxing was on Sports Resort, so I took it out to check. Nope. While there I tried out an airplane game I've ignored because it didn't look like much exercise. No, it's not very energetic compared to Bowling or Cycling, etc. However, it was fun except I'm TERRIBLE at controlling the plane. My son came home from work and saw my sucky handling. He took over the Wii. He's now got 62 out of 80 points. I have 1 point.
emoticon
As for my consistency in bowling, I tend to be fairly consistent within a bowling set, but my scores vary wildly from day to day. Either I can find my "spot" and swing that day, or I can't.
emoticon
Sometimes to work my "off" arm after bowling, I bowl a couple games with my other arm. It's always horrible, but I've gotten slightly less horrible over time. And... guilty confessions of Wii Bowling: when I'm going after spares, I usually granny bowl them. My throw is straighter that way, albeit weaker. Another advantage of Wii Bowling over real bowling: I don't have to worry about looking like a jackass in public with a granny bowl!

Friendly bowling is fine with me. Anything that keeps me motivated! So sorry to hear that you are on crutches. I like canoeing too, especially after bowling to get that other arm some exercise. Haven't tried cycling or swordplay, but I do like boxing. At least I think there's boxing on there. We have enough disks now, that I'm having a hard time keeping up.

Congrats on week 3! You have nice consistent scores.

I'm going to get my daughter Sports Resort for her birthday, so I think she will join us in February, if you don't mind. She got us hooked on the Wii.

Yay! I'm not sure that I'm a better bowler than you; I'm a very erratic bowler, and my Sports Resort bowling scores are closer than Wii Sports bowling to my real bowling scores (still too high though).

Anyway, do we want to figure in and factor handicaps, or just have friendly bowling? Friendly bowling is less brain work...

I love Sports Resort for getting moving! I'm on crutches right now, and I can get a good cardio workout in a chair with Swordplay and Canoeing, plus an okay workout with Cycling and Bowling.

Sure. Ha, you are a much better bowler than me, but I'd love to keep going. The bowling has me exercising more. Once I get started, I just keep moving on to another exercise.

Thanks!

We seem to have been abandoned here. I think our Resort Bowling challenge ended on 1/9/2010, so I didn't bowl this last week. However, I haven't seen anything posted one way or the other.

Ellen, it looks like you and I are the only two left bowling in this challenge anyway. Wanna keep duking it out, just the two of us? Let me know.

If so, I'll bowl this week and post my scores. You have some pretty nice scores for 1/16, so they'll be tough competition for me.

On Monday, 11/30, MEYLOSE told use that we'd start on Sunday, to give any late-joiners more time. (We didn't get any.) Today is Sunday, so I think we start bowling officially today.

I did my official Wii Sport Resort bowling for Week 1 today.

Week #1: 12/6 - 12/12/2009 (correct me if I'm wrong about the starting date!)

Meylose, might be more fun to do this as individuals, since there's only 5 of us...but not sure how to handle the odd number. maybe?

I didn't bowl on the Wii Sport but bowled and posted on the Wii Resort Bowling. Am I not on a team or am I dumb and can't find the posting?

Hmmmm... Well, MOMMY_T, I guess it's better that we die of shock from hearing your name than you having to kill us because we hear it! Of course, the BEST option is the one you chose: Nobody knows it, nobody dies.

Will give more rules shortly, basically run the same as the other tournament, EXCEPT you wil use the Wii RESORT GAME and need to do a manual mode for release of the ball.

Game Needed: Wii and Wii Resort(use Manual mode settings)

emoticon Welcome to the Wii RESORT Bowling Team League. emoticon
Sign ups are now open. To sign up, bowl 1 practice game (optional) and then 3 more games in Wii Resort bowling.

You MUST use the MANUAL MODE on the settings when bowling any games in the Wii Resort Bowling League.

Post the 3 game scores in our Wii Bowling League 09 Chat thread. You have until THUSDAY NOVEMBER 19, 2009, 11:59PM EST, to join.

On SATURDAY NOVEMBER 21, 2009 the teams will be posted including handicaps. Handicap will be figured just as my Wednesday Morning League is for real, the difference of your average and 200 will be your weekly handicap. If you have a 93 average your handicap will be 107, if you have a 130 average you handicap will be 70. The handicaps will be used to even out the teams and will be recalculated after each weeks winners are announced. That way the path to victory is in your ability to improve or at least be consistent more than it is being the best bowler in the forum. In other words, any team can win. If you did not send in scores for the week of bowling you will receive a blind score which is 10 pins less than your average (you average is figured on the number of games your have actually bowled).

So if for some reason you miss a week, and have a 120 average you will recieve a 110 for each games missed a total of 330 for your series.

Your team will earn 2 points for every win, up to 8 points a week and in case of a tie each team will get 1 point. Points will be awarded to the team with the highest game score, including handicap and highest series score, including handicap. You will bowl against each other team at least once.

***Schedule
Registration, will go thru THURSDAY NOVEMBER 19, 2009, 11:59PM EST.
You will need to post your 3 game scores to be placed on a team this will help determine the number of players on each team and the number of teams. This information will be edited to include the number of weeks we will be bowling.***

A bowling week will run from SUNDAY to SATURDAY, beginning on November 22th. We will run enough weeks that each team bowls again all the other teams at least once.

By the end of the EACH BOWLING week you will need to submit your 3 game scores. Use the "Wii Resort Bowling League Chat Thread"(which is the thread you are currently using to read these rules) to report your scores. You can practice as much as you want on any day other than your "official" bowling day. On the day you intend to record your scores for that week, you may only bowl 1 practice game before bowling the 3 games from which you'll post your score. You don't have to bowl a practice game if you don't want. And you can then bowl as much as you want after those 3 scored games but only those 3 games count.

Trying to keep it like an actual bowling league as much as possible.

These are probably all the rules for BOWLING, other than if each team wants to elect their own captain.

Please ask questions if you have any or need clarifications. I'm trying to run this like the prior league as much as I can.
I think this covers things, but I could be wrong, if so I'll edit and make changes.
