Hi my name is D.C. Knight, general manager and pro shop operator of Cardinal Lanes Beach Bowl in Wilmington, North Carolina, here today to talk to you about five pin bowling. Five pin bowling mostly takes place in Canada. It is only five pins compared to ten pins. The pins are slightly smaller than in ten-pin with a rubber piece around the middle of the pin to help them fly more. The scoring is similar to ten-pin in that if you get a strike, which is knock down all of the pins with one ball it counts as ten plus your next ball. If you don't knock them all down, and you need a second ball, and knock them all down that is a spare, and you get ten plus your next ball. If you don't knock all of them down on your first two, and knock all of them down the third time it is worth five. A perfect game in five-pin bowling is 450 as opposed to 300 in regular ten-pin bowling. And that is scoring in five-pin bowling.
