Duckpin Bowling for Relay for Life

March 22nd, 2011 by WLOY Staff



BALTIMORE, MD (March 16, 2011)-

WLOY, the non-profit, student-run radio station at Loyola University Maryland will be hosting and participating in bowling at Stoneleigh Lanes for duckpin bowling. WLOY invites any and all students to join us on Tuesday March 22, 2010 to experience a different kind of bowling many have probably never played before. WLOY works to provide quality music 24/7, to showcase unique student and faculty-hosted shows, and to provide music for on-campus events.


Duckpin bowling is a variance of the regular bowling. The bowling balls used in duckpin weigh anywhere from two to four pounds and are a maximum of five inches in diameter. Unlike regular bowling balls, these duckpin balls have no finger holes and are held with an open hand. The pins used are also much different then regular pins, they are shorter and lighter making strikes more difficult to achieve. This challenging game is said to have possibly originated in Baltimore as early at 1900. If you would like to test your bowling skills in duckpin or just have a good time with friends join WLOY for a cost of only ten dollars, including all you can bowl, shoe rental, as well as transportation. A Shuttle will leave from Behind Boulder Garden Café at 9:00 p.m.
