Tonight some of the members of my State College E-Free Life Group got together for dinner and a quick trip to the bowling alley. The light levels in the bowling alley were low, so it was nearly impossible to take worthwhile pictures with my little point and shoot camera (I assume using a flash in a bowling alley is a major breach of etiquette and a bad idea).
We did not get a picture of the full group, though here are blurry representations of a few of us toward the end of the night:
I decided to shoot video of one frame. Andy was the lucky bowler in the spotlight, and he delivered.
My bowling technique is barely a technique at all. There is no curve and little spin involved. Since my trips to bowling alleys are currently slightly fewer in number than my trips to theatres; I take no pride in my bowling ability and do not claim to have any skills whatsoever. I’ve recorded a massive range in my scores in the past. Tonight I failed to get near my record high score; I only rolled a 137, 149, 145.
One thing that this evening prompted is serious consideration of buying a pair of bowling shoes. Not that I plan to bowl with much frequency, but if I pick up a pair on sale somewhere they will last a long time and eventually pay for themselves. And I noticed that Northland Bowl has unlimited bowling for $10 during some afternoons. Maybe I’ll get some shoes, bowl once a month or so, and set a new high score.
