Bowling Games and Family Fun Go Hand In Hand
Bowling games and family fun are good times and then some. Everyone can get involved. And we’re not the only family having at good time at the bowling alley. Here’s a family that was kind enough to let me take their picture at Westgate Lanes in Brockton, Mass. Here is Billy, Kyle, Jimmy, and Paigheon (pronounced payton).
Although are basically easy, it’s actually a skillful sport. I know it seems so simple: just roll a ball and knock down some pins; yet amazingly, it’s not as easy as it sounds. But even without your weekly practice that helps make you better, it’s always a whole lot of family fun. You just show up and give it a try! bowling games
After an hour of exciting bowling games we’re sometimes sweaty, often smiling, always going over scores, talking about correcting our techniques, high fiving each other and telling stories about the fun we just had. Whew!
So… What’s so great About Bowling Games?
Bowling is a fun sport where you, your family and friends can get involved and you can compete together, against each other or against others in friendly competition.
Bowling is an indoor non-contact sport with no time limit and no hurry that’s all offense and scoring, with just a few simple rules! Set ‘em up, knock ‘em down, and do it again and again. Highest score wins. And bowling is so remarkable that everyone has their own unique style to the way they roll the ball.
Bowling is such a thrilling, exciting (and frustrating) game. It takes some kind of concentration. One minute you’re up, the next you could be down. When you throw a strike, or even a spare, and see all those pins fall down; sometimes suddenly, sometimes slowly, it’s so exciting and satisfying. Just as frustrating and aggravating as being unable to control the ball or watching that last pin stay up when you swear you’ve rolled the perfect ball.
My fiancé’s son started bowling when he was four; he’s now 12 and still bowling strong; shoot, he might even go to bowling college…no joke.
Best of all bowling requires casual clothing and although you can own your own bowling shoes and balls, they have plenty right there at the bowling alley.
Kingpin - A Funny Bowling Movie
Where we bowl there are two different kinds of bowling we can do, Candlepin and Tenpin (Talk About Bowling Games), so we have choices most people don’t. That’s why on Sunday mornings we love to head down to our favorite bowling alley at Westgate Lanes in Brockton, Mass. They have an overhead electronic automatic scoring system to track your game and video messages to help spur you on! It couldn’t be easier.
We have gotten to know people like Dave and Roberta, they bowl for two hours every Sunday; we‘ve known them for five years now, and Steve and Gene, who like to put a stake on their bowling game, buying each other lunch or music depending on the outcome of their matches. How’s that for a little friendly competition?
Candlepin and Tenpin at The Same Time
My fiancé’s son likes to bowl the big balls of Tenpin. I prefer the small balls of Candlepin, strangely, an almost completely different challenge! So my fiancé gets to do both, sometimes bowling against me and his son at the same time! Now there’s a fun challenge! He loves it, but I don’t know how he does it – from a sixteen pound ball to one less than 2½ lbs - he even puts up decent scores in both games.
Now Back to Family Fun and More
It’s nice to see familiar faces, whether you’re at your favorite gym, or bar or bowling alley, especially Harry & Marcia Minassian the owners of Westgate Lanes, or Tim at the main desk on Sunday mornings. It makes you feel like you’re home. When I bowl well or score big, my friends cheer me on, even though they’re three lanes down from me. It’s like one big family. I can even get a printout if I want. And my fiancé is forever giving out tips: and if he doesn’t know you, too bad, you’re still getting a tip anyway! Talk about getting involved!
Oops, and speaking of getting involved, it’s my turn to bowl! I hope to see you at the bowling alley soon, because bowling games are true . Our hour of bowling games are over already, boy… that was a quick hour: time to say good-bye to our friends. We’re all smiles and we all had a jolly good time. We’re outta here! family fun
