Let's go bowling and work off all that turkey!

Update--November 29:

Hello Everyone:

  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving with your family and friends, and that you have recovered from the feeding frenzy and are ready to have some fun bowling with your Meetup buddies tomorrow night!  A few notes/requests regarding the event:

  * Cost is $10, cash, for 2 games and shoes.  I will collect the money as people arrive.

 * I'll be in the bar area around 8:30, so please stop in and see me when you arrive so that you can pay, then go get your shoes and a bowling ball (if needed).  I'll have a Meetup sign on the table. After we get the lane assignments I'll also put Meetup signs on the high-top tables behind the lanes.

  * Leagues end at 9, so I would like to begin bowling around 9:15.  Plan to be at the bowling alley between 8:30 and 9--no later, please. Right now we have close to 50 people attending between this group and the Suburban Singles Solution group, so it takes a while to get coordinated and to our lanes. We won't begin bowling until I have everyone's money and I pay for the lanes. Don't be the one who arrives late and holds up the group.

  *  If your plans change and you are not going to attend, please update your RSVP by 3 p.m.   I have to call the bowling alley and confirm the number of lanes.  Let's not have any no-shows or late cancellations! 

  Thanks, friends, for your cooperation!  See you all tomorrow night!



 As of 11/22, there are some spots still available on the Suburban Singles Solution site. If you are a member of that group, you can RSVP there if the event is full on this site. If you aren't a member of SSS, just RSVP on the waitlist here and I'll take care of trying to get you into the event. You'll get a confirmation e-mail.  We have a total limit of 50.

Let's keep the fun and festivities of the long holiday weekend rolling (get it?)--plus work off all those calories from Thanksgiving--and meet up at Fox Bowl in Wheaton to play a few games of cosmic bowling.

Cost is $10 for two games plus shoe rental--which is basically free because it's $4.95 per game.  I will collect the money from everyone before we start bowling and will pay for all of us at one time, so please bring cash. 


Please plan to be there by 9 p.m. so that you can get your shoes and bowling ball--if you need them. League bowling ends at 9, so we will begin our games at around 9:15.  We'll gather in the bar area first, then proceed to our lanes when they are ready.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The fun folks from Naomi's Suburban Singles Solution group will be joining us, and if you are a member of this group and Naomi's group, PLEASE DO NOT RSVP IN BOTH GROUPS. I will remove anyone who is double-RSVP'd. Thanks!

      But, I certainly do appreciate all of you who did attend and made this a blast for me and for your fellow Meetup friends. It's because of friends like you that I enjoy putting together these events.

    • Donna

      Thanks. I'm removing you from the RSVP list, then, so I have an accurate count for the lanes. People are welcome to drop by just to watch and to socialize without needing to RSVP.

  • Donna

    Thanks for the suggestion, Donna. I'll see what's in the area and maybe post something closer to the event when I know how many people we could potentially have.
