I hope you still remember the special event held on April 8th – ATC Bowling Tournament. Personally I love playing bowling and especially the moments of strikes and spares! This game has always given me the opportunity to spend time with my friends and have an active rest, sometimes bowling is just like meditation for me. For the purpose of socializing and active rest I’ve decided to organize the Bowling tournament and invited ATC members and non-members on Facebook page and Instagram. It turned out that there were many people who shared love for bowling with me. 24 people came to the tournament, among them there were 11 non-members.
I had a lot of ideas how to make this event entertaining and exciting, but I could not put them altogether on one scenario. I asked the help and my friend from our club – Saule Temirbayeva agreed to help me. Her help was priceless; she was involved in the process from the first minute. We made a program starting from the breakdown of players by 3 teams for each lane using the bowling pins of different colors, plus Saule prepared the legend of Bowling and induction ceremony! Unfortunately we could not do that as planned, as there was very loud music and some people came late. So we decided to skip this and started off with the first competition named “Challenging throws”. There the participants lined up and one after another starting with the first player from each team rolled the ball with definite tasks. For example, first players of each team threw the ball with left hands, the second ones – sitting on the floor; the thirds turned back to the lanes and rolled the balls through their legs. After some efforts, we asked our players to think up the most breathtaking and ingenious throw. All the participants were involved and they offered different kinds of throws, some people started to dance passing the ball to each other, someone threw the ball blindfolded, and one beautiful lady even did the splits after her throw!
After such an exciting and challenging part of our competition we had dinner together, while having a meal we were playing the game named “Charades”, in addition to this all the participants voted overwhelmingly in favour of Aigerim Kosheken who won the award “Breathtaking throw”!
We came back to the competition and before starting the second part named “Turn of professionals”, I conducted a bowling workshop for 10-15 minutes where I showed some compulsive techniques with the help of which you could play bowling better and take pleasure in the game. Based on my observations it was very useful for our players. Most of them began to do the strikes after strikes and caught the flow of the game. And here we announced the nominations of “Super lady striker” and “Super male striker”. Our winners were Bairam Orazov and our guest Zhamilya Nurgazy.
At the end of the evening we awarded our winners and the first place award went to the team “La La land”. The second place – “Double strikers” and the team “Courage Bombay” took the third place. Our congratulations to all the winners!
My personal and huge thanks to Saule for your help, ideas and enthusiasm. Aigerim Kussainova, thanks for photo shooting.
