our ten pin bowling experience

We recently discovered that there is a place not far from us where we can go ten pin bowling so we gave it a try.

This is like ten pin bowling elsewhere in that there are balls that you bowl at the pins down the alley. But there are a few differences:

  • You get given not only shoes but also socks - on a one size fits all basis
  • The alley is not quite flat, so even if you are amazing at bowling you might find that the ball doesn't go exactly where you are expecting
  • The electronic score board doesn't work - so a man comes and sits with you to keep the score for you (and disappears every now and then!)
  • Sometimes the balls get stuck and the man runs off and tries to get them out again
  • Sometimes the skittles fall down by themselves and you may or may not get the point for the ones that fell down depending on how the man feels!
But it was still fun and I'm sure we'll be back again one day!

Hehe, seems perfectly appropriate for where you are. That's one of the things i love- nothing is ever quite as you expect it to be.
