GPGG went to Candlepin Bowling this past Sunday as a end-of-the-year outing! Candlepin bowling is a variation of bowling that is played with a handheld-sized ball and tall, narrow pins that resemble candles, hence the name. Candlepin bowling was invented in the 1880s in a local bowling center and billiards parlor in nearby Worcester so it is a Boston classic. We had a blast and everyone agreed that candlepin bowling is much harder than traditional bowling!

It was a great way to wrap up our busy fall semester.
