    I'll have you know I bowl a respectable 75 and have been known to fall and let the ball slide off my fingers behind me many times.

    you should know by now that bowling is past time enforced by all military bases worldwide. As soon as I could stand my grandparents were sending me out on the lanes pushing my ball down trying to stay with the arrows.

    By 2nd grade I was in a league year round, there wasn't much else to do on saturday morning in Germany(besides bug my mom). Once I was state side however all enforcement went out the window and I didn't bowl again till highschool. I still have a wicked leg slice however.

    Ok, well, then maybe I'll bowl on your lane, Tionne! Maybe we can put up some bumpers and then we'll show off!

    Anymore, Marric, there are always so many retirees that use the bowling alley on base that it's almost impossible to find a time that it isn't packed with the over-60 crowd. They are a grumpy bunch too, and don't enjoy other people being around.

    I hope I'm not a grumpy old person. (No smart jokes, here, either!)

    I know all about that my grandparents used make my brother and I go with them to their League nights. There is nothing more special than for a wee little'n to be around WWII vets drinking and living it up on the lanes. Ahh the good ol' days.

    I would gladly play on the not so good lane, so when I gutter something fierce it won't be sooo bad.

    Yeah, I'm in agreement with the guttering. I think we should all be allowed to play a couple of warm up games before we are subjected to too much smack-talking by the super-bowlers of the group. I might need A LOT of warm-up games, but hopefully at some point those turkeys will start rolling.

    at least drinking enhances bowling prowess, by the end of the night we should all be rather good. I'm sure there will be quite a few turkeys by then:cool:

    We'll all be turkeys with a few C3POs in us.

    Hey LDV, this is looking to be quite a bit more exciting than our first bowling trip, eh? Oh the good old days...you can keep em..I like the new days, even if we've lost a few of our original Rogues, the new ones are crazy fun! 8-}

    I'm an ok bowler. I've played on leagues but never had a 200+ game. I usually stick somewhere close to 170-180.

    And I would love to see what kind of craziness can be had by ya'll in this venue. So if I can get permission from my boss (aka my wife)[face_praying] then I will be there.

    Cheers,
    Wyo

    Hey, since I grew up in a trailer park in North Highlands, can I bowl with a shotgun? I'm much better with that. Something about the repetive nature and high skill recquired to bowl well, always threw me off. If I can't use the shotgun, can I use one of those rail thingys the kids use?

    Well, Wyo, I hope the boss lets you off at least for a little while that day. As you can see, it's going to be a fun time! Although, with your score, you'll be relegated to the "real bowlers" lane, and we all know the fun is to be had down with us gutterballers.

    Caeli, if you and your hubby are up to it, you should come and join us. We will all do our best to lift your spirits, and we miss your smiling face!

    Alas, dear ekim, no guns allowed, you silly goose. You'll just have to bowl a crappy game along with the rest of us. And yes, we can give you bumpers if you need them!

    I wanna see JediDoria throw a ball between her legs. :D Now I would pay money to see that myself!! ;)

    Ekim, you must be talking about Red Neck Bowling.

    Yes Bridget, this is lots better than our first bowilng event. The old days are just memories now ... so bring on the new days!!

    Wyo - I have bowled out at Beala AFB several times. And I have also bowled at Travis AFB too. There are not many bowling allies I haven't bowled at in Northern Caliornia.

    No, no, silly boy. I don't throw the ball between my legs. First, I pick the ball up gently, and put my fingers where they need to go. Then, I lift it up and hold it in front of me while planning my next move. I usually decide that I like to send it right up the middle, but on occasion, I might want it to go a little to the right or to the left. Once I feel like it's the perfect time, I hold it tightly, then let it go. It usually will make it's mark, although I've been known to throw it a little too hard or soft, and that makes it fall short of it's target "strike." So, no old lady moves, here, Buster! I KNOW what I'm doing with that thing... ;)

    I can throw gutterballs too, honest I can :D

    As for Jedidoria's other comments... I think I'll just keep my thoughts to myself. [face_blush]

    Cheers,

    I've tried to write a response a couple of times, and it's killing me, but I'm starting to think I may get TOS'd, so I'll end this conversation NOW.[face_shhh]

    Did Bith post the address so we all know where to find this ball-tossin' action??

    Well, as if it wasn't obvious, I'll be there. (NOT tying knots in cherries, 'cause no, I don't know how to do that!:( There are cherries in C3PO's though, so we could all work on that skill whilst awaiting our turn. ) Who's joining me???

    (**edit** Marric beat me to the first response. So who is joining the two of us for the "slick lanes and dirty balls?" Although, in my opinion, all balls should be cleaned before you get there!:) )

    (**second edit**Ok, Marric, now you are just trying to annoy me. Stop trying to get the last word in...;) )

    (***third edit***) I still have 49 minutes...can you hold out that long?:D )

    (****fourth****Well, I'm gonna win then!:p )
