    Bowling Etiquette
    Thu, Nov 15 2018Dealing With Bowlers on Surrounding Lanes:
    Yield to the bowler to your right if you’re both up at the same time.
    Do not step onto your approach until the other bowlers on adjacent lanes have stepped off theirs.
    Make sure you have no bowler on either side of you before you get ready to bowl.(More)

Click on the logo above to find out more about actual 9-Pin Bowling.

    International Candlepin Bowling Association
    Candlepin
    bowling is played with different balls and pins than either Duckpin or regular 10-pin bowling. The pins are not tapered and the balls are softball sized. Players are allowed 3 balls to down all the pins – Dead wood is NOT cleared away between tries.Candlepin is most popular in the Canadian Maritime Provinces. Note the size and shapes of the pins as well as the small bowling ball.

    Duckpin BowlingDuckpin Bowling is a variation of 10-pin bowling, played mostly in the Northeastern US and as far south and west as Indianapolis. The balls and pins are smaller than those in 10-pin bowling and players are allowed 3 tries to knock down all the pins.

    Ice Bowling is the opposite end of the scale from lawn bowling. Increasingly popular in northern climates, the game is played on frozen lakes and indoor arenas.
