Have you ever bowled a 300?

Asked by Dutchess_III (46255points) April 18th, 2013

I did, but it didn’t count because the first frame of the first game was open, but I threw 15 strikes after that, into the first 3 or 4 frames of the next game.

No. Closest I ever got was a 281 – and that was a LONG time ago. But it was in a single game.

Oh! That’s just about 2 strikes away, isn’t it!

Good lord, no! I’m lucky if I break 100. But my dad has bowled 3 perfect games now (he’s a amateur league player).

When my husband and I joined a bowling league, about 10 years ago, my mom gave me all of her 600 series patches. She had about 20 of them. Thanks mom! No pressure there!

Congratulations! Even if it didn’t qualify, it must have made you feel good.

As for me, not even close. When I was on a bowling league, I received an award for Most Improved at the end of the season. Either my best score or the average was 131. Pathetic, but it was fun.

:) It was a highlight, @Pied_Pfeffer. I was in a zone. Just “BAM BAM BAM!” I could have thrown it in the gutter and it would have bounced out and gotten a strike. :) I wound up with 280 the first game, and….240? or so the second game.

I don’t think I’ve ever bowled more than 50.

@Dutchess_III Wow. Did the pressure build after each turn?

@downtide LOL! Do they even have bowling alleys in England?

300? This is Blasphemy. Madness even.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes the pressure mounted! Everyone in the place was watching me, too!

downtide's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer yes we do. I just (clearly) don’t visit them much.

Yes, but only on the Wii! :)
