View Full Version : There was a knock at the door

09-24-2012, 12:46 PM
I limped my way across the house to see who was there. Looking through the peep hole I see absolutely nothing :mad: I open the door to see if I can see who is messing with my door and annoying my dog. What do I see between the doors? A nice box with a pretty bowlingball.com graphic staring at me. :D Could it be? Could there really be a new (free) bowling ball sitting in my doorway? A quick pinch to my arm and I realize I'm not dreaming, so I hurriedly grabbed up the box and brought it inside. I open up the outer shipping box and before my eyes there it is. A shiny new DV8 bowling box.
I open it up and there it is a brand new DV8 Marauder, along with a nice DV8 towel and some stickers.
Now I have to go to the pro shop and get it drilled up.

Thanks bowlingboards for the free ball.

Wow, what a great feeling it must have been! Congratulations once again! Don't forget to show us some results. :cool:

Congrats Davec! Let us know what you think!!

Thanks guys. I wish I could get some decent pictures of it under black light, have the blacklights in my arcade just can't get a decent picture. It looks amazing glowing though. If it hits as good as it looks i'll be very happy.

Show us a video of it!

Also, is that a skee ball machine or a mini bowling arcade?

I'll see what I can do about a video.

It's a skeeball machine. I don't have a shuffle bowler yet, but as soon as I find one in my price range there will be one sitting next to that skeeball.

Here are some better pictures of my play room. :cool: There a little on the older side during construction so ignore the missing trim, flooring, ect. There have also been additions to the game selection.

It is an awesome feeling. I have to wait until tomorrow to get it drilled too.

Grats on the ball, looks awesome. That's a nice little collection you got there :cool:

I'm jealous. I don't have a Marauder...YET!

I'm jealous. I don't have a Marauder...YET!
Neither do I. The pro shop has it until I can get back there Saturday :mad:

I have so much going on and he had 30 balls in front of mine either drill or tune up, so he couldn't drill while I threw a few games.

congrats on winning the new ball!!! Hope you enjoy

Congratulations!!! I'm new to bowling and I'd have to say that the "Take No Prisoners" on that DV8 Marauder is too cool!!! Do other DV8 balls have similar sayings on them as well?

Very cool, I personally have a MK 1 machine and a fun house pinball. I almost bout the MK2 instead of 1, I probably should have. Right now the pinball machine has some kind of error I have not fixed yet. Perhaps I will figure that soon.

Well you can just swap boards and play MKII in the MKI cabinet. Fun house is definitely a fun machine. I always thought rudy was creepy yet cool at the same time.
