On Friday morning we went to the bowling with the whole group. The bowling we usually go to moved and so we went to the new bowling in the Meiboomlaan for the first time.
After the break we left school by bike or by car. When we arrived at the bowling, we had to make groups of six persons and wear bowling shoes. Then, we all got a bowling alley assigned. Before we started playing we could choose a theme, for example prehistory/ birthday party… You could take selfies, that then appeared on the whole screen. Chatting with the other teams of six was also possible… a very nice addition in this new bowling!
After ordering some drinks, the games could really begin. You had to throw a bowling ball (you could choose between different weights) towards 10 bowling pins trying to knock them down. If you could knock them all down, you win a strike. We had 10 rounds with 2 shots each. The atmosphere was fantastic! In my group competition was high. At first, I had the most points, but I ended last in the end.
For some of us, it was our first-time in the bowling alley, but we learned quickly. My partner was even better than me and it was her first-time. We had a lot of fun and were so concentrated, that one boy even forgot to put the bowling shoes off and he left his own shoes. Fortunately, the teacher came back to change the shoes.
