Bowling Party Supplies – The Background
Bowling Party Supplies are based on the bowling sport. In this sport the players try to score points by rolling a bowling ball and knocking down the pins. The surface used for bowling is a flat surface, normally a wooden or a synthetic one. Today, 95 million people enjoy bowling in more than ninety countries worldwide. And through the latest entertainment media such as video games for home consoles and hand held devices and mobiles bowling is continuously growing.
The earliest bowling games were played in Ancient Egypt. The latest form of the bowling is ten-pin bowling that is also called as the norm. On September 9, 1895, in New York City, the first standardized rules of bowling were established.
In the late 1950s and early 1960s bowling alleys were constructed in the western United States. This is considered an important facet in bowling and bowling alley development. In that times, some of these tens of millions of dollars and were described as “small cities in themselves” by the Los Angeles Times. The most active person in alleys’ development was Louis Lesser.
Lesser had developed nine bowling alleys by 1962. He developed a bowling alley in Indio, California, in 1960. The cost of the alley at that time was $750,000. He built “Beach City” Santa Monica Civic Lanes in Santa Monica, California in 1959. The cost of it was $2 million at that time. The biggest alley built by him was Parkway Lanes in El Cajon. It had 60 alleys and five acres of land was reserved for parking. He, along with Ted Bentley, planned and developed Legion Lanes into a 44-lane bowling alley from the Hollywood American Legion Stadium boxing arena, situated at El Centro and Hollywood Blvd. It cost $2 million at that times and was equipped with playroom for children, billiard room, cocktail bar, and snack bar. Lesser planned development of bowling alleys in Australia, New Zealand, and Japan in 1962.
Bowling is similar to walking with free weights, so it becomes an anaerobic type of physical exercise. Bowling is an anaerobic type of physical exercise, similar to walking with free weights. The flexing and stretching in bowling works muscle groups not usually exercised like tendons, joints, ligaments, and muscles in the arms. It promotes weight loss by helping in burning calories. It also helps in making new friends and strengthening friendships.
Like all the other physical activities, warming up is necessary before bowling to helps to prevent injuries. Always pitch the bowling balls with both hands and bending the knees to avoid back and wrist injury as these are heavy. Always picth a ball with the finger holes that are not too big and not too small. Never pick too light ball it would probably be thrown with less accuracy. The ball should be heavy, but only that heavy that you would be able to throw it easily. Sometimes fingers do get stuck in the ball, so remember to warm up your fingers before inserting them into a bowling ball. Also make sure to keep your hands clear of the bowling ball return mechanism, as it has a driven wheel.
Ten pin bowling is the most popular and most common format of the sport. One point is awarded for knocking down each pin. In these matches each player bowls a game. Ten frames make one game. In each frame the player can roll the ball twice and try to knock down the ten pins. If a player knocks down all ten pins on the first roll it is called a strike. If a player scores a strike, his score won’t be ten but ten plus the sum of his score in his next frame (two rolls). If a player knocks down all the ten pins in a single frame (using two rolls), it is called a spare. In spare, the score of the player will be calculated by ten plus the score of his next one roll. If a player scores two consecutive strikes, it is called as a double. If a player scores three consecutive strikes, it is called as a turkey. If a player scores four consecutive strikes, it is called as a four bagger or hambone. If a player scores five consecutive strikes, it is called as a five bagger. If a player scores six consecutive strikes, it is called as a six-pack. If a player scores strikes in all the games, it is called as a perfect game and the player is awarded 300 points.
Bowling Party Supplies – The Options
You may select Basic Party Pack from our Bowling Party Supplies. It includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Bowling Kids Party Supplies. It has much more items than the Bowling Basic Pack. The Bowling deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Bowling Kids Birthday Party Supplies. It would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Bowling Party Pack Add-On. It contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Bowling Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
