Let's Bowl!!

Well, it's not bowling for dollars, but it's still bowling.  The rules of the game are simple.  You get two chances each turn to roll your ball at ten pins.  Knock them all down the first time and get ten points and a chance for a lot of bonus points.  Knock them all down with two tries and get ten points and a chance for some bonus points.  Don't knock them all down and get some points.

 

The cost for this event will be $10 dollars per person.  Unless we make special arrangements, I will need the money from you by Monday, January 15.  I will be at all three events at Caribou before then (the 3rd, the 9th and the 15th) so you can pay me at any time.  We have reserved lanes at Crofton Bowling Center from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.  I'm asking us all to arrive at 11:30 AM to give us time to check in, get our bowling shoes and select bowling balls so that we can start bowling right at 12 noon.  The $10 includes free bowling shoe rental and two hours of unlimited bowling.  Our reservation is locked in from 12 noon to 2:00 PM so I want to make certain that we can enjoy our full time and be off the lanes at 2:00 PM.

 

We will be able to use some group funds for liquid refreshment--bottles of water and pitchers of soda.  When you rsvp, let me know whether you prefer water, regular soda or diet soda.  Crofton Bowling Center does not allow us to bring in any outside food or drink, however they are equipped with a snack bar that serves sodas, pizza, burgers and fries, etc and an actual bar.  The snack bar menu is listed on their website.

 

Crofton Bowling Center is as best as I could determine the closest alley to Caribou.  It is located on Priest Bridge Drive which intersects Route 450 about 1/2 mile east of Route 3.  If you need more specific directions, let me know.  Hope to see you there.  Will you get a gutter ball or a turkey (that's actually a good thing)?

    If there is enough interest, I don't see why we can't schedule a few months from now...April or May.

    I vote we should make this a somewhat regular activity. Everyone seemed to have fun. I forgot how much I enjoyed bowling until I went yesterday.

    Lol. I had a great time. Thanks Rich for organizing it. Now I have to go take some Advil 'cause my arm is sore. Think I should have used a lighter ball!

    An exciting day of bowling. We held our own against the 4-10 year olds who were bowling around us! :) The high score for a three-game set was Matt with 329 and the high score for a single game was Tami with 118. Best fall at the line goes to me!!
