Anybody here plays bowling?
« on: March 06, 2016, 03:24:16 pm »
Because I've just tried it for the first time yesterday, when I was invited there along four of my friends from the academy. None of them have played it much as well, but they still beat me quite handily. At the end, after two hours, I had 82 points, while the next-weakest had 142, and our winner got 260. Still, I probably would do it again, though certainly not in the next month or two.

So, that's my experience of it so far. Anybody else's?

I've bowled three or four times, I think. I remember being pretty bad at it.

I haven't played it much, but I do agree that it's pretty fun. I'm not that great at it, but it would get boring if I were to be excellent at it from the start.

I've bowled a few times in the last year. I'm ok at it, if I remember correctly. Always score somewhere in triple digits.

I love bowling and I'm actually not bad at it... but our nearest alley charges almost fifty bucks a game, so I don't go very often.

You should get a bowl haircut in honor of bowling and record yourself bowling.

I consistently finish in ah the 125 point range. Not very good but ah usually better than whoever I'm playing against.

Well, thanks to everyone for replying. And ****, 50$ a game + paying for shoes? That group certificate we got cost a 1000 roubles, I think, which would be roughly equivalent to 15$, and the shoes were just given for the duration of the game. Though if you take it relative to an average income here, it might well average out the same.

I went last week and it was ah $11 for three games and a shoe rental. California is a strange place.
