Team Bowling Night

The Hydraulics drafting team went Tenpin bowling on November 16, 2016, and we can say that bowling was definitely the winner on the day. From all accounts everyone enjoyed themselves. Secrets & pins were spilled. One secret that can be divulged here is Rocky was in a under 5 semi-professional left handed amateur one-pin bowling league in China. But was disqualified for being found to be 23 at the time and right handed.
Rocky’s experience in the one pin league put him good stead in the early frames, however when everyone had warmed up, pure luck took over from Rocky’s experience and all scores were level half way going through the first game. The quiet achievers Jane and Sonia slowly built momentum to be in the race, however equipment failure prevented them from coming home strong. In investigations after the games it was discovered that Jane and Sonia’s bowling balls were not Internationally Sanctioned bowling balls and were incorrectly weighted which forced them into the gutters. Scott came out of the gates early with blinding bowling, but the pace could not be sustained and he suffered a minor gluteus maximus strain. Roman was the dark horse, slowly building momentum to be close at the end of the first game. However when all the pins were cleared, dust settled and fashionable kicks were returned to their rightful place the clear winner was Tristan, who bowled the perfect game. No one can exactly remember the score but word on the street is it was close to 600.

Good fun was had by all, due to the credo that what “goes on at tenpin stays at tenpin” the photos below have been altered to protect the guilty. In unfortunate news Rocky has been officially fired as team photographer.

Sonia, carefully surveying the competition…

Then Calmly knocking down all the pins
