Step 1: Arrive with your game face. Everyone thinks that bowling is a friendly game and the score doesn't really matter. Well, it's that kind of attitude that is going to land you with a score sheet full of gutter balls.
(and in this case, a slightly spooky game face thanks to my camera tripping out)
Step 2: Enter your bowling name. It's very important that you have a standing bowling name. No respectable bowler would enter their first name. That simply tells your opponents that you do not take this game seriously.
(bowling name: Monkey)
Step 3: Time your approach and whatever you do, don't cross the foul line. Aside from that it doesn't really matter how the ball gets down the lane. Through your legs, a sideways roll, or a good old toss.
Then wait and watch . . . don't turn your back on the ball.
Step 4: Revel in sweet success! Victory is yours . . . celebrate it!
Step 5: Return to your bench for a round of high-fives. Yes!
Step 6: Gather with family & friends to capture the smiles and friendship of a Christmas Eve tradition that is now 7 years strong.
personal note: I tied my all-time high score of 150! Woo-hoo! The last time I scored 150 was in Cancun, Mexico (April 2000) without bumpers. :)
