I bowl occasionally, for fun. Usually average about 120. My daughter is enrolled in a league, she just started, so she's not very good, but somehow got chosen for the state tournament last year. I think it had to do with improvement and her handicap score combined. >>
Unfortunately, she didn't get to go, because I won't let a 9 year old travel without me, but we did enroll her again this year in league play. Maybe she can improve on her 63 pin average. *g* Seeing as she started out with a 30 pin average 6 months before, I consider that a lot of improvement.
