Duckpin bowling has short fat pins with small four pound balls (think short tenpin pins and slightly larger candlepin balls). This event is going to be at Ryan Family Amusements in Raynham (there are only four duckpin alleys in the state). It costs $35 for a lane for 1.5 hours for up to five people, shoe rental included. Figure $8-11 per person if we have 3-4 people on a lane. There are vending machines but it's not really a food and drink place. Also, this is an automatic scoring alley. After bowling we can get a bite to eat. There are a few options in the area incluidng The Jockey Club, Pub 99, Applebee's, Chili's, and Longhorn Steakhouse. We could also order food from The Jockey Club next door and eat it while we bowl.
To get there, on Route 93 South take exit 4 to Route 24, then take merge on to Route 44 and from there take exit 13B. Some noticeable landmarks are a plaza with Staples and Bed Bath & Beyond, McDonald's, Shaw's and IHop. Ryan Family Amusements is after the Sunoco station. There is a miniature golf course in front. If you drive by Stop & Shop, you've gone too far. (All of the food and landmark information was provided by Leanna who works there. She was really helpful so we'll have to thank her when we see her.)
Sorry, to my knowledge this is not T accessible. If you are interested in going, but would need a ride, RSVP "maybe" and put in that you are interested in carpooling. I'm sure we can work something out.
This a joint event with the Boston Bowling Group.
