Do you Bowl? (Edited 09/28/10 01:55PM by Jess)
I was just wondering for any recreational bowlers on here, what is your best score or average? I mean i'm not great, but i am never last. My best ever was like 170 something but i probably only average like a 105 (glad there is always someone who cant bowl at all). So, what do you bowl?

#4 | 1753 days ago

I used to bowl in leagues for several years. Eventually my team drifted apart for different reasons, and I sort of lost the interest I had in it.

My high games were 275, and my highest season average was 189.
Yes, I bowl  
#5 | 1753 days ago

When I was little, I bowled a lot and was really good (OK, geektastic moment ... I competed and took 2nd place in the state in my age group), but I haven't seriously tried to bowl in years.  Lost every ounce of bowling skill I ever had.  Now, on the rare occasion that I DO go, I literally just chuck the ball down the lane and walk away.  I don't even look to see if it hit anything.   

Yeah, I'm THAT girl at the bowling alley.  I just go for the fun of spending time with my friends.

#10 | 1753 days ago

When I was 10 years old, I joined a league and went from a 13 average to a 135 average and won a trophy for most improved bowler.  I bowl occasionally now and I can usually get above 150 in at least one of the games I bowl.

I have bowled as long as I can remember for fun.  When my kids were younger we went at least once I week.  I don't get it go as often as I would like anymore.  When I was in college there was this totally hot guy that I had a huge crush on.  He went bowling every Friday Night.  I would go to the bowling alley (a little tipsy) and pretend like I didn't know how to bowl so he could help me learn. I told him one night he had a nice ball and all my friends busted out laughing! I think he caught on finally and we dated for a while.  He was one I wish I had not let go. Thanks for bringing back the memory!

I used to go bowling with a friend a lot a number of years ago.  At the that time my highest ever was 213, had a couple of 212's to flirt with breaking that.  Back then I'd avg about 175-180.  Now, if I get 160, I'm happy.

I figure all I need is some practice!

I love bowling-- I would like to go much more often. I used to be a leagues for a couple of years; I never was great, not more than about a 140 average and never broke 200 that I can recall, but it was great fun. And if you like the Wii version get Wii Sports Resort, it's a bit more realistic and thus a bit harder.

use to bowl in a couple different leagues. Averaged around 175, and had a high game of 255. we split due to financial reasons. I sure miss it. My grandmothers side of the family gets together once a year for a big family tournament. Its a lot of fun. I have yet to win it but have finished second twice. the next one is in two weeks!

I bowl in a 4 man Men's League during the winter (32 week season) and have been bowling in Leagues for 6 years now. Our League just ended and we placed 3rd out of 18 teams- not bad I guess. My current "Book" average is 183, my high game this season was a 268, and my high series (3 games) was 679.

It is a family pasttime, and one sport I do enjoy whether in a league or out with a group...I actually will hold a FAN IQ Bowling Tournament once I pop this PowerBall...

A lot hinges on the lottery...but if I don't hit it, let's get together for a bunch of pictures (and pitchers) and tear some lanes up!

Average 175 bowler...and love talking s*** the whole time!!

(can't believe I JUST saw this )

I've bowled in both 5 pin and 10 pin leagues, at different times, in different towns.  My 5 pin average is 190, with a high game of 315, and my 10 pin average was 145, with a high game of around 180 I think.  Now I just bowl for fun with hubby and kids, but I still have my own shoes and balls.  I've gotten the triple turkey and 300 game pins and I have a full dozen mugs (given for 200, 250 and 300 games)
Now when I bowl, I'm lucky if I can get 145

When I was younger, my best was 208!  I rarely bowl now, only for fun with friends.  I tend to just joke around so my average now would be 120 I would guess.  I go out there and make a fool of myself now!  It's way more fun that way!
