I still think that Fridley Lifetime Fitness is our best bet.  It's got better parking, more tables, is cheaper and is in more of a central location.  I'd definitely be up for that one!!

I am also talking to the Lake Harriet Spiritual Community Center (that's where they hold the Meetup Game Nights). They have a ping pong table, but it is set up in a large room (much larger than we need - 125 people capacity), and it costs $125 for 4 hours. They have a kitchen, so we can bring our own food and wine/beer. I asked them if they can either partition the room for us and charge less, or move the table to a smaller room, which is $50 for 4 hours. If they partition the room, then they won't give us a weekend night, because they can very easily rent out the whole room to someone else on Fri or Sat night. If they move the ping pong table to a smaller room, then it's not connected to the kitchen, and they are not sure they can allow us to bring food/drinks. They are checking on all that, and will let me know tomorrow.

Just to get an idea, what days/times work best for people (assuming a 4-hour window)? Also, how does everyone feel about paying between $5 and $10 per ping pong event?

The open house is Jan 10 and 11 and the hours are typically from 10am to 3pm (you just need to get there during those hours -- stay as long as you want once you're there).

OK, then I'm interested and we've gotta do a little more planning for the open days or people that have memberships to delegate their "Friend" membership.  But it's a good location!   Hey Jeff, can ya fill us in more on the "Open House" times?

I think each member can bring 2 guests except on open house weekends (like this coming weekend)

doesn't each person have to have a membership there?

Lifetime fitness in Fridley has ping pong tables!

Hey, everyone!

Just looking for some help/suggestions for a new location to hold our monthly Ping Pong events.

If anyone knows of a public place with at least one ping pong table, please let me know. Ideally, a bar setting would be the best, but a gym or a party room will do, as well, as long as it is open to the public (or you can let us in :)). So far, we have had anywhere between 16 and 30 people attending these events, so the place needs to be big enough to accommodate at least that many.

Thanks!

Olga
