Bowling with Nerds

Let's knock down a few pins at the bowling alley and have some fun! Kearny Mesa Bowl is a popular joint to go bowling. We can rent the lanes by the hour (around $20 or so per lane/hour, plus the costs of shoe rentals) and we can split the costs accordingly.

    Hey all. I suggested another bowling meetup for August, but there will be an attendance limit of sixteen people trimmed down to just two bowling lanes of use. This will allow a more manageable setting that will maximize the opportunity for the bowlers to interact with each other during the game play. Only RSVP for it if you actually plan on attending the event.

    Ok.... I'm truly happy to announce.... I was the worst bowler in the entire nerd League tonight. I'm proud to say, there was no other with a lower score than I had. And you know why I'm so proud to admit this?..... It is because every single person who came to this event, was supportive of each and every one of us without judgement of any kind. They complimented each other for a single pin going down and they were supportive of each other, to the "Nth" degree. I may have set a record for he worst bowler in nerd history... lol, but my fellow nerds, never let me think this way. I could not even begin to quantify the level of kindness and respect that I felt from this group tonight. You guys/gals are without a doubt.... the best!!!!!!!

      I feel bad for "liking" this comment. BUT only because I wish I could LOVE this comment. Thank you for the kind words Michael. It was more than we could ask for. This group isn't just a community it's a HUGE frakkin family. On a side note...You MAY have been the worst bowler (your words not mine) but I personally had a lot more fun because you were there. I am glad we got there an hour early and had the time to talk and get to know each other better. I also like the fact that you brought up a Nerd League. I would so rock a bowling shirt that had the ALN logo on the back.

    That was an awesome time with this group! We have some pretty good bowlers in this group. Thanks to DJ for the bowling "trophy " of two tickets for the top score. I surprised myself tonight with 158. Everyone motivated everyone and the kindness was awesome. Love you all!

    This event was so much fun. There were like 2 dozen people there and we took up 4 lanes and sometimes up to 8 people per lane. We all did our best but most of all we had fun and were VERY supportive of each other. This was a prime example of nerd "community" coming together for each other. Thanks to everyone for all the fun and laughs we had. Yes DJ that means you too. :)

    Initial Meetup Spot!!! Just to get our bearings at the start I proclaim the tables near the vending machines to be the landmark to gather the group together. We can head over to the cashier's desk once we have enough attendees accounted on location. From there we could add our lane numbers to the comments section here so that the late arrivals will know where to find us.

    1 · June 23, 2013

  • Michael W.

    Confirmed are Bill, Jon, John Oesterle, Irina, Tatiana, Alex. Others have not texted me to confirm. So I'll be giving that slot to DJ.

    Ok nerds/nerdettes.... I purchased 1 more Groupon discount for our bowling venue. If anybodies interested, please let me know.... if not, we can do this again sometime before now and Dec. 11 when the deal expires.

    June 23, 2013

    • Cydele

      I am also interested if you still have spots available!

      June 23, 2013

    • Michael W.

      Yes, 4 people are good on one deal. But the group of 4 must bowl on the same lane. I have two deals. One group of 4 can take the second deal and get another lane.

    Just got some bad news... So in not going to be able to make it! Maybe next time! Enjoy yourselves!

    June 23, 2013

  • Michael W.

    FYI - the discount Groupon that I bought is good for up to 4 people, ($7.50 each for 4 people to bowl for 2 hours). If I'm not mistaken, we will need to go together as a group of 4 to the "rental desk" to rent the shoes and lane. I intend to come early to this event, so that I (hopefully) can meet with those of you who are interested in taking the 3 opportunities I have available. If your interested, please call me at[masked] and I will reserve a spot for you.

    I am set for Bowling. (I hope they have my size in shoes.) I was wondering if anyone had the groupon with room for one (maybe two) more?

    June 22, 2013

    • Michael W.

      I bought the groupon Bill. And have 3 spots available. Should be a lot of fun!!!

      June 22, 2013

  • Michael W.

    I've been crunching some numbers.... Based on Emily's comment about a groupon special. Thanks Emily!!! Ok.... shoe rentals are $3.50 each. To rent a lane for one hour is $18. The groupon special is $30 dollars for (4) shoe rentals and (2) hours of lane rental. If we only rent a lane for one hour and (4) people use it for only this one hour... it still costs $32. I'm thinking that we will be bowling for at least (2) hours. So, I'm buying the groupon deal after I finish writing this message.... because it just makes sense to save money. Sooo, I have (3) openings for $7.50/each which includes shoe rentals and use of (1) lane for (2) hours. If anyone is interested in saving a few bucks, please let me know.

      Do you still have a pair of shoes a avail?!

      June 22, 2013

    • Michael W.

      Yes.... I have 3 discount spots available. For $7.50 you get shoe rental and 2 hours of lane time. Just let me know if you want one or more spots. They are not tickets per-say.... I bought a $30 dollar discount that provides shoes and bowling for up to 4 people. I assume that means we have to share the lane.

    Was excited to see bowling as an event. Really wanted to go but happens to fall on the weekend I'm visiting family in Illinois:(
