Bowling pin match results

I said I was going to a bowling pin match yesterday.


Only three people showed up in the cold and the rain. I was the only one who had ever actually shot at a bowling pin match before and that was probably 10 years ago. We didn’t exactly remember the rules and some of the things we did we knew were “not according to spec”. For example we always drew from a holster with a starting position of wrist above our shoulders.


Also, the plan was to have a little bit of money riding on the results. We didn’t do that.


After doing the five pins in any order pretty much as the game is usually played we messed around with other things.


The results were:


5 pin first stage
Joe 7.55 7.40 8.91 Total: 14.95
Mike 17.09 8.74 6.11 Total: 14.85
Roger(winner) 7.41 16.40 7.08 Total: 14.49


5 pin second stage
Joe 8.87 8.95 9.00 Total: 17.82
Mike(winner) 5.75 7.22 8.73 Total: 12.97
Roger 8.77 6.54 12.65 Total: 15.31


10 pin (arranged like in a bowling alley)
Joe(winner) 9.25 8.21 19.78 Total: 17.46
Mike 11.08 8.31 11.34 Total: 19.39
Roger 13.94 15.18 14.59 Total: 28.53


Inside Out 7 pin (7 pins in a line, but you had to shoot the standing pin in the middle then work your way out)
Joe 12.17 +1 = 13.17 (I got a 1 second penalty for shooting one pin out of order)

Shoot one, skip one 7 pin (7 pins in a line, but you had to shoot every other standing pin from one end first then reverse it, repeating until all the pins were down or off the table)
