Whether you’re unwinding with friends or want to spend time with coworkers outside of the office, bowling party games are an excellent way to do it. Here’s how to get the good times rolling:
There’s something charming about doing it old-school. Give your guests a clue as to what the party will involve. Sending over bowling party invitations should be a dead giveaway and one that fellow bowling enthusiasts will be sure to appreciate.
Pick a location
Scout around for a local bowling alley well in advance of the festivities. You’ll need to reserve enough lanes for your group so it’s important that you know who’s going to show up and not.
Ask about discounts
Many bowling alleys often offer discount nights. You’ll want to ask about those offers since those rates could less expensive that the group party rate. And while that might mean doing the party on a Tuesday instead of a Friday, if everyone in your group is okay with the date, then you can have fun and save money at the same time.
Know the rules
Are you allowed to bring in food and drinks from outside? Make sure to ask before you haul over that feast only to be told that you’d be charged extra.
No bowling party is complete without a series of fun bowling games. Go bowling in slow motion for a funny take on the game. This also helps take competitive edge off, the eHOW says, which should make for a silly, goofy and lighthearted way to pass the time.
Start your invites early
You’ll want to send those bowling party invitations early on. The last thing you want is to do is send them over too late that your friends, family or coworkers have already made plans. Get the date saved so you’ll have a full turnout of guests.
