Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

OT- Hey, look what came in the mail today! (any bowlers out there?)

  • How can you have a handicap of 1977?  Isn't it only possible to get 300?  Boy, you must really be bad !!!   :))

    Heck if I know, VI!  My job was to show up, drink beer, and throw the ball towards the pins.   [-O<

    Ok Kristi, you threw a big hanging curveball over the plate and I'm gonna whack it.  It's all in fun. 

    Did you at least drink the beer proficiently?  That is, you didn't regularly spill it on your shirt, did ya?

  • Guess me flashing my 155 bowling ring just lost its luster on this board. LOL

     

    Congrats, I've bowled enough to realize I would never sniff 200 let alone 300.

    As an accomplished bowler and the forum defacto expert, @michigan_jason, what do you think of these bowlers that throw with two hands, no finger holes in the ball? 


    Defacto eh? Perhaps you would like to elaborate on your choice of words?

    Regardless, I was trained to bowl with my thumb in the ball. That said, if it is allowed by the USBC, or whatever organization you are bowling in, go for it. To each their own, and some guys are damn good at it, Ala Jason Belmonte.

    I am the only bowler to have ever thrown a 301. Your 300 is decent at best.

    I can't believe it took so long for someone to say that! Thanks man! I used my left hand if that helps lol.

    Good stuff, when I bowl a 300 I think I pulled a Munson

    I bowled a 300 once...I had to add up three games to do it...but I bowled a 300.  Fantastic accomplishment Mich Jason, well done.

    By defacto, you are the first expert, the only real 300 bowler on this forum that I know of, hence you are the expert. My money is on you - if someone else want to take your title, let them speak now or forever hold their peace or is it piece, never could get that right. 
    Anyway, as a Canuck, I did bowl in a league for some time with a 305 average, of course it was 5 pin and a perfect game is 450, but still, I didn't get a ring. Great accomplishment, go get another!

    Thanks man, guess I took it out of context. Glad it is clarified. 5 pin bowling sounds cool.

  • Ever do duckpins?  While living on the east coast we were exposed to this style of bowling.

  • @hapster Thanks man, you should get back into it, or maybe you are just scared that you will get TOO into it? You are right about it being a great family activity. I try to get the family going as much as possible for open bowling. My 3 year old is a lefty like me and already bowls using one hand.

  • @smittythesmoker No, I have never heard of duckpins.
