(Um, although bowling is not athletic, it is considered a sport) Does anyone else here bowl? 10 pin or duckpin? Averages and highest scores? Other info? I bowl 10-pins. I don't bowl on a league, but bowl once or twice a week most weeks. My highest score was 224, but my average is only in the 150s. I'm from somewhat of a bowling family, but myself didn't bowl regularly as a kid, only since the last 3 years have I bowled regularly. My mother when I was a kid, bowled on leagues 4 nights a week and had at least a dozen boxes of trophies stored in the attic, and my dad bowled league once or twice a week... they both had averages over 200. Also two of my siblings were on leagues, but the other two and I only bowled once in a while. I preferred putting my energy into skating. Bowling is weird lately. I was bowling exclusively left handed for about a month due to an injured right elbow, but then broke my left wrist (I bowl lefty about 1/4th of the time just to be able to bowl with both hands, and because I can switch up if a pin arrangement is easier to knock down from the other side). Fortunately, my right elbow is only mildly painful now when picking up the ball without the support of the left. Thursday I managed to bowl a 177 even though I could only use one hand to handle the ball (the first game was a waste, trying to get my position to compensate for not having the support hand). I was happy that the score was that high, given that I hadn't been bowling right handed for a month. Sometimes I get my bowling form messed up with how I use my body in skating, which really messes me up. The way I use my shoulders bowling is somewhat opposite of skating doing spins. It's especially bad when I skate and bowl on the same day. It would be fun to get some skaters together for bowling, but I'm kind of thinking no one here lives near me, close to Washington, DC.
