New Bowling Rules..

Postby go_jays_go » Mon Aug 08, 2005 7:47 am

This one is for you Mad.. :-D

New Bowling Rules


Supplemental Rules for Bowling

If you holler "overs!" before the ball passes the arrows, you get to throw the ball over, unless of course, you get a strike. In which case, you can renege on the "overs".
When your team is about 10 marks down in the 8th or 9th frame, you can invoke the rule "First Team Through Bowling Wins the Game", and your team still has a chance.

After a member of the opposing team bowls 4 strikes in a row, he/she must bowl the next 4 frames blindfolded. If he/she continues to strike, his/her shoelaces will be tied together for 2 frames.

When you leave the 10-pin and you know you can't make the spare, but another member of your team can, invoke the "Designated Bowler" rule.

After you have 4 splits in one game, you may say "Kings X" and take those 4 frames over. However, if you split on the 2nd time around, you accept it. After all, "Fair is Fair".

If your ball goes in the gutter and jumps back onto the lane, knocking dow pins, by golly, you get them! That's much harder than to knock them down the conventional way. Good bowling should be recognized.

A ball should be declared dead when you bowl 3 games without a strike. It shall be the owners privilege to decide on the disposition of said dead ball - Burial at Sea, Dropped from an airplane over a live volcano, or a simple burial in the city dump. For a small fee, a league officer can be bribed to deliver a short eulogy.

You would be amazed at how many people actually believe that's a real rule. :-o I have been the President of many, many leagues in my life and it seemed every year I had to explain to someone that once a ball hits the channel, it's dead. Even had to pull out the rulebook to prove it to some of them. :-o

Haha! :-D Agreed! I've killed off bowling balls for less than that though :-b . Heck, I tossed one ball in the trash after only throwing 4 shots with it ($200+). 8-o


Great list and made me laugh :-D . Nice post! ;-D ;-D

I went through a funk for about a month last season where the 10 pin became my nemisis. Every time I would build up some momentum I would leave a ringing 10 and I felt like just hitting calling down the sweeper and saving myself the embarrasment of dumping a ball going after it.

I missed two of them tonight (made 6 of 8, lanes were totally flooded). Think you've ever seen me mad? You wouldn't have wanted to be near me earlier tonight. :-b

That list was great. BTW, put me on the "ignorant of bounced out of the gutter rule" list. I didn't necessarily think it counted, but I didn't know for certain that it didn't.

Also, what's "flooded" mean?

Heh... I did the same with a $170 racket once. Except mine was a little diferent. Try replacing "tossed" and "trash can" with "bashed" and "net pole." Add thermos to that sentence, too...

O:-)

ps - Mad, you ever been to the Bowling Hall of Fame here in St. Louis?

Yep, it's a real rule.

As to "flooded", it means lots and lots of oil on the lanes. Prevents the ball from hooking as much which results in the ball hooking into the pocket at a less than ideal angle, which results in the 10 pin (7 pin for leftys) standing quite often.

Actually I have. It was quite some time ago, but I'll make another visit in the future. :-)
