Season 22: Fall 2010

The 2010 Fall season happened to coincide with many real life events so, with everything from a wedding to simply "not feeling it" in the mix, recruitment ended abruptly with only 28 bowlers signing up to do battle with only twenty-seven sticking it out until the very end. New blood making their league debuts included Aaron Chandler, Brian Cunningham, Chris Able, Chris Massey, Jake Parrott, Jessica Thomas, Rick Heckadon and Sarah Manning. In a tight finish, Jake Parrott came away with the Rookie of the Season award with newcomer Jessica Thomas on his tail.

After an impressive start, the members of No Pinheads found themselves leading the league with a 15-1 record after the first four weeks of the season due to a 12-game win streak – the most of any team this season. Chasing the Pinheads throughout the first eight weeks included eventual champions Pin Pricks and second place finishers Ground Zero Mosque, who would hover around the top of the league standings for the remainder of the season. The Pin Pricks, Ground Zero Mosque and No Pinheads respectively ended their seasons with the 2nd, 9th and 12th best records in league history. Kitten Mittons, who finished in 4th place, was the only other team to maintain a winning record but lost it in the Finals due to forfeiture. Alison Radke of the Mittons shot a 401 series (648 with handicap) which ended up moving her into the 5th all-time spot for women's high series handicap.

While they didn't finish in the top half this season, impressive statistics were compiled from the other teams during Season 22: Bowl Movement's lead off bowler Jessica Thomas put up the 5th highest scratch series in the women's all-time category with her 505 series on Week 11; Drink and Hurl's Jake Parrot shot his first 200+ game in the Finals – a 206 – making it the 28th highest men's high-game handicap of all time; lastly, Feed the Monkey's Sarah Manning's 167 in Week 10 not only was the women's 5th highest high-game handicap score but also tied for the 3rd highest pins-over-average female game in league history.

The Pin Pricks managed to secure the title one week before the Finals, making it a race for second place. The Pricks' Ken M. Wilson was the season's Most Valuable Bowler. Sneaking in at the last moment was Ground Zero Mosque who found themselves facing no opponent due to the Mittons untimely forteit. The Pinheads slipped to third place after a 2-2 split with the league champions.

The championship title was Ken M. Wilson's 10th, Carl Goetz's 8th, David Codding's 4th and Ian Goetz's second.
