bowling!

When I lived in Vancouver I bowled at least once a week ... so who wants to check out Langford Lanes next weekend? (Saturday the 27th) There are no reservations on weekends but there is a bar we can sit at and enjoy a couple pints if there is a wait. Prices are available online. Just google "Langford Lanes."

    With 33 points in the first game, I'd be willing to challenge it again with finesse. Thanks Brian, Cheers!

    I will probably be the heavily inebriated individual at the bar ... lol

    I just put my name down for 3 lanes ...she says 90 minute wait minimum! This is at 6:45pm. We will likely be bowling between 8:30 -9 .... so lots of time to get lubricated beforehand if u arrive at 8.

    Hello everyone! As you can see this event has become very popular. There is not much more I can do to manage the situation as reservations are not available, but I would like to say a word about managing our expectations. Given the number of people attending there could be significant wait times, our lanes will not likely be right next to each other, etc.... i will be arriving early to try and get a couple lanes going, around 7 or so. If anyone wants to get there early as well and get a practice game or two going that would be helpful.

    This shindig is going to unfold organically. Please dont expect a professionally planned party because you are not going to get one!

    Aside from that, this is going to be great! Can't wait to meet you all!

    Brian.

    Last time I bowled, I had an accident that caused me disc herniation. I think I can't join you in this event because I have still some discomfort in my back. enjoy your time there.

    Brian I think there are reservations because I bowled there with the 40s and 50s group a few weeks ago on a Sunday and she had reserved two lanes for us. Maybe you can reserve Sunday and not Saturday I dont know. Or maybe she just showed up early and got two lanes, that I am not exactly sure.

      They told me it would likely be a 0-60 minute wait, probably 30 min, depending on what time we got there. We can wait at the bar and have a couple drinks and chat. I figure 4-5 people per lane and with 12-15 reservations and the usual last minute cancellations, we will need 2 or 3 lanes max.
