Bowling

Post by bizzeedee on Sun Mar 14, 2010 11:20 pm

I haven't bowled in 30 years.. but yesterday participated in Bowl For Kids Sake... a Big Brothers-Big Sisters fund raiser (part of the Newcomers Bowling Team). I can't begin to tell you how much fun I had...

Doesn't matter than my first 6 balls were gutters (me and a team mate were convinced the lane was slanted.... even though tho the other two consistantantly got strike Very Happy )

Our team raised $332 dollars (pledges/donations). There were prizes for everything... every time you got a gutter you'd put you name in the drawing, same for strikes (and believe it or not, I got 4 of them in two games)... and prizes about every 20 minutes... the radio station kept it going... one of my team mates did get a free dinner for 2 at a local restaurant. I figured I'd win most gutter balls... Lord only knows how many times I filled in a slip of paper, but some 8 year old kid won.

But it really didn't matter, we were there for a really good cause.... I keep thinking, I ought to become a Big to a Little.... and who knows, one of these days, I just might... I could be the Big Grama to a Little Granddaughter LOL

It sounds like a good time! Bowling is always fun if you go into it with a good attitude. Ever bowled with a serious bowler who's off his game? You don't want to!

Sounds fun Dee and a great cause.

The last time I bowled was 15 years ago with my hubby (who was just a friend at the time) and our friend who is blind. Since he is blind we bumper bowled and I still got my ass handed to me by a blind guy who had neve bowled before.

I do improve with beer, lol.

Oh I can't drink and bowl! I almost killed a guy one time doing that. The maintenance man stepped out of a door near the pins right as I hit a gutter so hard that it bounced out of the gutter and rolled on the lane divider. The door was down a few steps and that ball flew straight at his head for a few seconds. Then it fell back in the gutter. But I think we all just about had a heart attack.
