      I completely understand about the drive. It's an hour minimum for me to make an event. Most of my friends won't join because of the drive.

      Driving is definitely a challenge in the DFW metroplex. I live in central Irving, so I drive quite a bit to attend our events (we are, after all, NORTH DALLAS Dating Differently). The good news is that if someone wants to host an event in another area, we are totally okay with that. So... go for it! ;)

    Seeing that so many were able to arrive early, for our next outing, we might consider Splitsville - - a very upscale venue in the NE corner of Central Expwy and Stacy Rd (next to iPic) in Fairview. All day Tuesdays it's $2 per game and for shoes... and a great snack bar. And the Bowling Differently trophy will return... and be even bigger! You can arrive as early as you like if you have a busy day on Wednesday :-)

      Good suggestion, John! I would not be able to host a gathering in Fairview 'cuz it's waaaay too far for me to travel; so for now I'm going to schedule another one in Addison. Seems like that worked well for a lot of us!

    Seems that many came early - - and some left early... before we could vote on the Bowling Differently Award. The default consensus went to Lulu, for having the only ball older than mine - - and initially using flip flops as bowling shoes... before management made her toe the line. Katie was a very close second, for having the audacity to intentionally roll gutter balls, then casually get a strike on her second try! If Aaron (the only one left whose phone had a flash) posts his photo, we'll be able to see the presenting of the trophy... designed as a fringe benefit for the judge :-)
    Honorable mention went to Mark - - while attempting to reach the pins on one bounce, he threw out his shoulder in the first frame! Melanie was recognized as our 10-pin expert - - if you leave it... she'll knock it down for you!!

    This is TONIGHT! Ok all you chatty posters, it's time to put up some scores. Please make sure you update your RSVP so we know to look for you and hold space for more people as it's probably going to be pretty busy there if only with our group! Come early and bowl a couple of non discounted games to get lanes for people when they are cheap. Make sure you meet at least 3 new people and remember our guideline... If you are first meeting someone in NDDD, take it slowly. Do not ask someone out within the first 2 times of meeting them in person. We are creating a safe place for people to come get to know lots of people of both genders, we are not a meet-market. Thank you for helping us date differently.

      Hi Sheri - - you're just in time to give Hal a few grammar tips... along with the Chisolms, you constituted the top three teachers at Terrell! Is Ed still the principal? Although he personally recruited me from Townview (he was a Dallas ISD exec director before returning to THS) to teach, I still fell under the central admin bureaucracy :-(

      Then quit throwing strikes - - getting bashed by all those pins (they're quite heavy!) results in countless nicks, dents, and bruises! Just place your ball gently in the gutter and give it a slight push... it will return without a blemish!

      The ball was the size of a bocce ball - - and no holes... so you had three throws to make a spare.

      A fount of lefty trivia? Nah! Was just surprised that so many were unfamiliar with the lefty-devil connection. Googled it and learned quite a bit. Although there's no genetic marker (yet!) up to 35% of children of left-handed mothers are lefties - - if the father is lefty... only 10% if he's righty.

    We will separate out the real Keglers from the gutter dwellers. (Kegler is the original German term for bowling) Either way come have have fun! If you haven't been to this venue before or lately, it's 100% NON SMOKING and has lots of leather couches, billiards, and they bring food and beverages to your lane.

      Keep in mind that, unlike dating, the goal in bowling is to keep your ball - - not your mind - - out of the gutter! Any truth to the notion that 'keglers' was derived from how many kegs of beer were consumed while bowling??

      2 · June 26, 2014

  • Steve Z

    Who knew we had so many Bowlers? We are going to have to have some folks come early to help us hold lanes. As with any meetup we post here without an RSVP cost, please cancel your RSVP if you for sure are not coming. It makes it hard for Marla to plan things when we have a bunch of no-shows. Looking forward to this one!
