I was hoping to feather bowl. Since this was not the plan I hope to join you all another time.
Jumping off this one to prep for out-of-town, but have fun for those of you that do go!

I've been out of town without wifi or internet for the past week, so haven't been part of the conversation. I suggested that we meet tomorrow night, and my idea was to have a couple of beers and watch feather bowling, and didn't realize that the suggestion made me an organizer of the group. My apologies for not following up. I just called Cadieux, and they say that the band starts to play about 9pm, no cover charge, so I'm thinking about going to listen to the music and having a beer. Is anyone else going?
Are we going to be able to bowl? Or just hang out and watch? Are the leagues going to fill all the lanes?
There are only two lanes and yes, the leagues use them both - there will be no bowling that is definite and there is limited room for watching. The best you can hope for is dinner and drinks - but if 80 people are planning on showing up - someone should call so they can staff for it.
I changed my RSPV. I don't want another "Dakota Inn" experience.

Since Marie has not responded, I took the liberty and I just called the Cadieux Cafe. They have no reservation under the group name or under Marie's name for Tuesday, February 25. He further stated that on Tuesdays leagues start playing at 7:00 pm.
At this point I would say that there is NOT a "MeetUp" scheduled unless she was planning on just showing up and watching the league play and have a few drinks.
I have been there many times, and in my opinion, there is not enough room for 80 (attendees as of this time) to watch the game.
For those of you who may have never visited there, there is a regular sized doorway to the "lanes" and an area on the Cadieux side of the lanes for people to gather.
The restaurant side could handle 80 people but not too many more.

Pam, thank you for taking the initiative. I really liked some of the ideas for events that were posted, but if the organizers are too busy to take on events at this time, maybe we could think of a way to brainstorm event ideas and submit them and events should only be posted for dates when arrangements are actually made by organizers

Changing my RSVP - seems like this event has not been well thought out.

Will the organizer of this please join in conversation that is about Tues being a league night? There are a lot of people interested but the place cannot accommodate so many wanting to bowl on any night and yes the alleys need to be reserved and paid for well in advance.
oh yeah that's right how would that work Tuesday is league night
Changed my RSVP - As a Belgian-American I love the Cadieux (pretty much grew up there) but Tuesday is indeed a League night - there will be no open bowling after 8p and usually it is recommended to reserve lanes in advance. In my experience - maximum number of people on a team is six. So twelve per lane, per game - and games usually last at least 45 minutes ... While the beer is worth the trip - I imagine it will get to crowded and confusing for me this time... Have Fun!
Really want to join to yes for now but work had been tight until the end of next week

Good spot can't wait for the muscles, been waiting to feather bowl for years.
What if some of us go on the 25th, and some pick another day?

The only nights I'm free are Mon. Tues. Wednesday, so, since Annalee is free on Tuesday, how about the 25, Tuesday next.
That's a league night.
Since there are leagues on Tuesday night, the lanes would only be available for 1 hour...correct? And since lanes are limited, most people probably won't be able to bowl??
fyi, on their website http://www.cadieuxcafe.com/featherbowling/
Tuesday (8 pm) and Thursday (7 pm) are League nights (read Public Play)
40 per hour per lane. I have no idea of the limit per lane or the number of lanes available.
Tuesday might not be the best night because of leagues.
Any idea on cost yet?

There seems to be a lot of interest, but no plans made for any of the "events". Anyone know what's going on?
Cadieux Cafe is much better than Bath City Bistro. Perhaps due to it being more like the original game. The polished bowling alley lanes take away from the game after growing up playing the game at the cafe.
I recently did some research on the game. It was originally called rolle bolle; played in dirt; with wheels of cheese; and a beer in their other hand. Cadieux Cafe is closer to the traditional game.
I have played the sport at both venues and definitely prefer the cafe over the bistro.
PLEASE make this one on a Tuesday! It is the only night I don't work.

You should probably put a limit on the invites since the venues capacity is limited, not to mention the number of lanes, people who can play at one time, etc.
Cadieux Cafe is a great place for this!
Cadieux Café is awesome .. but you might want to try Bath City Bistro in Downtown Mt. Clemens.. they have 3 indoor "alleys" also.

I've seen this game played once but didn't get up my nerve to try it. I think if we had a group of newbies playing I wouldn't be so nervous, and a few drinks and some Belgian fries couldn't hurt
