So, for those of you who haven't already heard, I recently joined a Bowling League....(well, I thought I was just subbing and trying it out, but it turns out I'm committed through June, which is turning out fine) I am really enjoying it so far.
The league meets up Wednesday mornings and bowls 3 games. I warned them that sometimes, my kids have bowled better then me. I am a member of the "I suck at bowling, and I'm OK with that" page on Facebook for heaven's sake. And I pretty much do. I bowled 2 games my first week....both 59. Sad, right? I did bowl a 126 game, my best so far....but I'm averaging about 76. So, there is definitely room for improvement. But I'm getting more consistent and I'm excited that next time we bowl as a family I won't be the laughing stock.
There is childcare included for the young 'uns. Sydney did OK the first couple of weeks, but I think she's not liking it....so I let her watch us bowl this week and she was a lot happier.
I'm now wondering, is it worth it to pay $2 a week to rent crappy used shoes, or should I take the plunge and buy some of my own? I hear they have really great deals at a local pro-shop where you can buy your own shoes/ball/bag combo for about $100. Or I could just buy the shoes for around $25-30. Hmmmm. I would totally buy a combo if I KNEW for sure I would be bowling league next year too.....but I'm not positive. It's really fun and I AM getting incrementally better. Maybe I should just take the plunge. Or just get the shoes....? Here are some I like..
I'm confused. Will someone just TELL ME what I should do?
