Routine Meetup - Bowling!

The idea of a regularly scheduled meetup has been thrown around quite a bit, starting with weekly to bi-weekly, and now, monthly. So, I think it would be possible to handle two meetups a month: one that's routine, and one "special" to accommodate for any bigger events happening.

This particular routine meetup will be going to a bowling alley to play a couple of games. Right now, the intended location is going to be the Brunswick Colony Lanes in Wallingford. The website for the place is claiming that for Saturdays (if that's the ultimately decided day), until 6pm, it will cost $4 per person, per game, plus another $4 for shoe rental. However, past experience tells me that they will ask each person to fork over at least $20 for two full games. There's a pizza restaurant in the same plaza, and, with it being in between North Haven and Wallingford, there's plenty of lunch options on either end of Route 5.

I'll leave the link to the pricing page in case you want to do this on a different day: http://www.bowlbrunswick.com/hours-and-pricing/115/

The date will remain blank, as this could either count as the routine meetup for either July or August, for means of convenience.

    I'm not gonna lie, a couple weeks ago, I thought that things were looking a little bleak over this meetup's potential success. I honestly thought for a good amount of time that no one was actually going to show up because of a lack of interest or distance issues. I thank you all for proving me wrong and lifting my spirits a bit. In addition, I also want to extend gratitude to those that made this their first meetup experience. You took the first, and biggest, step, and we're all glad to have had you around, and hopefully will have around in the future.

    I can't stop laughing at the pic of me looking the wrong way. I truly am an agent of chaos.

    The meetup was a lot of fun and it was nice meeting so many bronies for the first time. Being a smaller group of just ten or so, it was easier to introduce myself and be introduced to everyone else. You guys were friendly and welcoming and you definitely made an event out of the bowling trip.

    This was a great experience. For my first meetup, this was awesome! I'll definitely be going to a LOT more of these.

    Okay, guys, I just rolled into the parking lot, so you can start commuting there whenever you'd like. I'm wearing a "ride the lightning" shirt.

    September 14, 2013

    • Mercedes J.

      Still at work. Clocked out but I'm leaving the parking lot now. Give me 30/45 minutes.

      September 14, 2013

    • Spence

      That's quite fine. The Battle Sentra party is reporting delays.

      Word up! See you there!

  • Mercedes J.

    2:30 will be a hell of a stretch for me since my shift ends at 2 and its 20 minutes away. I'll have to douse myself in Axe spray just so I don't smell of used motor oil.

    September 14, 2013

    • Spence

      I'll be heading there right after work myself, so you're not alone in that struggle

      September 14, 2013

    • Gerard

      I like the smell of used motor oil! One of my favorite smells, right after nitromethane ;)

      September 14, 2013

  • Quinlinn

    oh i wanna go so bad. i still didnt get the call from my potential workplace, so i couldnve come but my sister came home from school for the weekend so its still no.:(

    September 13, 2013

  • Sam M.

    Any ideas on when we'll be forced to head home for the day? I need to know so I can tell my ride when to pick me up.

    September 13, 2013

    • Spence

      Hm, that's a good question. Let's see, I think bowling a couple of games would likely take an hour or two, and then sonic is a few minutes away from the lanes, on top of some time spent there, so... maybe 4ish?

      September 13, 2013

  • Gavin"Hama129"

    Yeah! last minute RSVP!

    1 · September 13, 2013

  • Spence

    Okay, you guys, I'm looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow. Just so you know, after bowling, we're probably going to go to Sonic further down the road in Wallingford for lunch, and perhaps somewhere else yet-to-be-determined. If you have any last-minute questions about what's going on, please let me know.

    I like the idea of a regularly scheduled meetup. I can be there for this one but I will be leaving early due to previous engagements :(

    I'd enjoy attending the routine bowling trip if that's alright with you guys. I can't say with certainty if I'll be there since this is my first time attending a meet up, but I just though I'd ask.

    September 5, 2013

    • Gerard

      Always happy to see new members, looking forward to meeting you!

      September 5, 2013

    • Mercedes J.

      Welcome, you'll like it here.

      September 5, 2013

  • Spence

    Okay, so the intended date now will be Saturday, September 14th at 2:30 PM. We can always change it if there's a problem with that.

    August 29, 2013

    • Gavin"Hama129"

      I have a party to go to that day, so i'm going to have to pass.

      August 29, 2013

  • Spence­ changed the date and time to Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 2:30 PM

    August 29, 2013

  • Josh M. G.

    May I suggest either the 17th or the 24th?
    If we want saturday that is

    August 11, 2013

    • Josh M. G.

      Okay, I still want a saturday though... :P

      August 12, 2013

    • Spence

      noted.

      August 12, 2013

  • Spence­ changed the location to Brunswick Colony Lanes

    July 27, 2013

  • Spence

    So, how about some brainstorming on where this should go down? I'll nominate the Brunswick Colony Lanes in Wallingford, as it's kind of centralized, and I know the area with some confidence. There's a Sonic down the road from it, as well as a few other nice little dives on the way for the lunch break.

      I can definitely go if that's the location. :]

      July 27, 2013

  • Damian

    You guys think I can just sit next to you all and not have to pay? I'm not a huge fan of bowling so that's a bit less coming out of the "generosity funds"

    July 18, 2013

    • Spence

      i think you'll be able to do that. might depend on the alley we go to and the person at the counter, though.
