Join fellow LGBT folks for some informal bowling! The score isn't important - having fun and enjoying the company is.
One of our semi-monthly bowls (the second and fourth Mondays of the month) - we'll be getting together at 7:30 at the Woburn Bowladrome in downtown Woburn (http://woburnbowl.com/index.htm).
The Woburn Bowladrome is located at 32 Montvale Avenue. They are just up the hill from Main Street and Route 38. You can get to the bowladrome from Route 93 by taking the Montvale Ave exit (Exit 36) or from Routes 128/95 from the Winn Street exit (exit 34). The bowladrome is near MBTA Bus 134 from Wellington Station. See below for more detailed directions/info.
By 5:00, day of event. If you forget to RSVP, you can still come (and should!) - I just can't guarantee you'll get to bowl (most probably, but...?)
By 7:30 - Inside the Woburn Bowladrome. Look for us by the counter in the middle, between the two sets of lanes.
To be split among the group: The bowladrome charges $2.75 for shoe rental and $24 per hour ($12 per 1/2 hour) for bowling, with a $12 minimum.
I am not currently asking for an event fee to cover Meetup's charges, but donations are welcome (max $1 a month). :) (I may take another look at this after the group's been running 6 months.)
If you're unfamiliar with downtown Woburn, I strongly recommend you print out a map of Woburn center before setting off, especially if you're following the directions from Route 128/95 North below. (There are a couple of quick moves you'll need to make around the common downtown to get from Winn St. to Montvale Ave.) A Google map is at https://www.google.com/maps/place/Main+St+@+Montvale+Avefirstname.lastname@example.org,-71.1425755,16z/data=!4m7!1m4!3m3!1s0x89e375abd656d707:0x2df321e83b3fdbdf!2s32+Montvale+Ave!3b1!3m1!1s0x89e375a96f6a0ad1:0x8eaf8f6e39ae9811
From Route 93 North: Get off at Exit 36 "Montvale Avenue, Woburn/Stoneham."
Turn left at the bottom of the ramp (towards Woburn).
Go approximately 1.7 miles - the bowladrome will be on your right. Just before it is a road that leads to the municipal lot behind it. (If you overshoot it, taking three rights around the block will lead you to Walnut St, which leads to the lot.)
From Route 93 South: Get off at Exit 36 "Montvale Avenue, Woburn/Stoneham."
Turn right at the bottom of the ramp (towards Woburn).
Go approximately 1.7 miles - the bowladrome will be on your right. Just before it is a road that leads to the municipal lot behind it. (If you overshoot it, taking three rights around the block will lead you to Walnut St, which leads up a short hill to the lot.)
From Route 128/95 North: Get off at Exit 34 "Winn Street, Woburn/Burlington."
Turn right at the bottom of the ramp.
Follow Winn Street 1.7 miles until it ends at Woburn Common.
Take the required right turn - immediately get to the left and take the left around the common.
Immediately get into the middle lane and start to turn right onto Route 38 South.
HOWEVER - you don't want to actually stay on Route 38 - you want to turn left up the hill onto Montvale Ave.
The bowladrome is on your left - there is a roadway just past it that will take you to a municipal lot for parking.
MBTA Bus 134: Leaves the Wellington Station busway at 6:10, traveling through Medford and Winchester before getting to Woburn Square at approximately 6:45 (about 45 minutes early). A later bus leaves at 7:00, which gets to Woburn Square at approximately 7:35. If you take the later bus, be sure to send me a message so we can save you a space (see "your host" below). Note that I or someone else would have to give you a ride back - the last bus back inbound to Wellington leaves Woburn Square at 8:09.
Will be Chris - the six foot tall guy with the beard (see pic). If you're running late or are lost, you can call or text me at[masked]-4933. (Note that my cell phone doesn't work well at my home in Gloucester - if you need info before then, call my home number at[masked]-2254.) My email is [masked].
