The bowling alley

We have a very old 2 lane bowling here at McMurdo. So the process for bowling is, bowl the ball with really no idea where it will go. The lanes are pretty warped...The ball knocks down the pins
and then the magic happens....2 lucky and kind volunteers hop off the ball watching perch and manually retrieve the pins.

This is Julie & Brianna waiting on the perch for the next ball to come through. You have to wear the striped socks so the bowlers can see you and not send a ball at you before you are back up on the perch. Its really hot and loud back here. It takes about an hour for a group to bowl 1 game, and an hour of manually setting the pins is alot of work!!
