SPC 205 “Informative Speech”
As we all know, bowling is one of the most fun recreational sports known to man. Bowling is great for first dates, family gathering or just grabbing a group of friends on a Friday or Saturday night and going out having fun. I’ve been bowling since the age of 11 and I currently have a 203 average. Took me long enough but I got there.

STRIKEEE!!!!
How many of you were aware that there’s actually sort of a “rule book” for bowling? Yes, the sport that seems so harmless actually has rules. The most important rule of bowling is “bowler courtesy. If a bowler is already on the approach, you have to let that bowl roll before you do so. It’s a safety hazard if both bowlers bowl at the same time. You can accidentally hit someone in the face, the guy/gal next to you drop a bowl on your foot. There are a lot of goofy and unusual things that can happen. And the last thing you want is to a bloody nose or a broken foot to be the highlight of your weekend.
The last thing I want to cover is attire. Now when you’re bowling with the family or with your friends,...
