Yesterday, I joined a bowling league. Yep, bowling is my thing now.
There are way more rules than I expected. The rules which confuse me the most are the ones about calculating team scores and standings. Apparently, they don't follow the standard "the team that gets the most points wins the game", because there are rules about pacers and blind scores and handicaps and other things that affect scores.
Rule #12 says that a handicap is 90% of the difference between your average and 220. Does that mean 220 is the average score people should be getting? I can't get even half that. I guess the handicap will come in handy, if they add it to my score when I play the tough players.
I was on Team 13 of 13. We were the only ones to not have an opponent, so we finished way before everbody else. I came in last place for two of the three games; I came in second-to-last in one game, but the person I beat has vision problems, so I don't feel particularly proud of my minor victory.
