Bowling!

It's time for a field trip! We're going 5-pin bowling at Bronx Bowl. Everyone will pay for their own shoe rental, and lane fees. Cost will be $5 per game per person, plus $2 for shoes.

Looks like food is going to be pizza from the place across the parking lot. We can hash out what to order when we get there.

Wear your robes if you have them! I'm hoping for Wizard Bowling photo ops!

All Houses Welcome!

    Thanks to everyone who came out! They treated us REALLY WELL!

    Please try to remember to bring some cash with you, as it will make paying for the pizza much simpler. (I'd really rather not put it all on my credit card, if it can be avoided!)

    • Maria

      Okay, done some quick math, and depending on how many pizzas we decide to get, it's going to be approximately $8-10 per person for foods. Will that do for an estimate?

      Thx. It helps.

    I'm driving in from Fort Saskatchewan so if anyone wants to take transit to Clareview I can pick you up there or if you live in that area I can give you a ride.

      Catherine, does that mean you won't be in your awesome robes? *pout*

      I have them with me!

    I'm so sorry guys, I can't make it out tonight. I thought I would be able to finish the work I have to get done today, but lucky me, I spent the entire morning dealing with computer issues which put me way behind schedule, and I just can't afford to get any further behind. I am so sorry for the last minute cancellation (but it looks like it will open up spots for others).

    The things that changed our plans and made me not go... has changed. So Del and I are coming, and bringing Jeff, who is an excellent bowler.

    Sorry gang, but this cold I came down with this morning seems particularly med resistant. Also, I don't want to get you guys sick by handling your balls...you know what I mean. Have fun, and get a strike for me!

  • Lisa H.

    Sorry for the last minute change. Ive got a cold kicking my butt and I dont want to infect everyone for expo weekend. I hope there is another bowling night soon. I was really looking forward to it :(

    September 27, 2013

    • Michelle E.

      We're sorry to hear that. :( Get well soon!

      September 27, 2013

    • Maria

      Aww! Feel better!

      September 27, 2013

  • Maria

    Okay, looks like Glenn and I are going to have to split up to get everybody. Glenn will swing through downtown to get Laura, and I will hit the southside. Shuby, are you still on the southside? Please advise.

    September 26, 2013

    • Laura

      Actually (sorry, this was one of those things I thought I mentioned but it turns out I didn't), I figured out a way to get there--no need to pick me up from anywhere!

      September 27, 2013

    • Maria

      No problem. Thanks for letting us know.

      September 27, 2013

    Hi everyone,

    We're kind of eating our words here, but I am feeling a bit better, so I am willing to try bowling, and George has rethought his position. It's just that it has been years since he has bowled in front of a group, so he was (and still is) nervous. We will get there on our own, but we would greatly appreciate a ride home though. We look forward to seeing you.

    1 · September 26, 2013

    • Maria

      Glenn or I can give you a ride home.

      Thank you. :) We appreciate that.

      September 26, 2013

  • Michelle E.

    Hi everyone,

    George and I won't be able to come after all. I had a nasty fall yesterday which I am still recovering from. I want to make sure I am well for the convention. George is concerned about being too slow for everyone, especially on an unfamiliar alley. There is also the concern about getting a ride home. Maybe next time. :)

    September 25, 2013

    • Maria

      Oh dear! So sorry to hear that!

    • Mark

      I'd have driven George and Michelle if I'd been going. Alas, I am not free.

    September 25, 2013

      I'll be there around 6:30, you can call me or text me on my cell when you get there. [masked]

  • Maria

    Okay folks, we're up to five people who have indicated they need rides. Is there anyone with a car who can help pick people up? I'd rather not have to make multiple trips around the city! Anyone on the southside? Near downtown? Anywheres else? Please comment to help out!

    September 25, 2013

    • Michelle E.

      We'll get there by bus but will need a ride home. It's just as long to ride all the way to clairview if not longer. Just to let people know, the 12 goes right there from kingsway.

    Hi Catherine,will you pass by Jasper Ave 120 st or anywhere close to ? I can take bus to the location to meet you .

    September 25, 2013

    • Catherine

      I won't be passing through downtown but if you can take the LRT or bus to the Clareview station then I can pick you up there.

      September 25, 2013

    I would like to have a ride if it is possible I live in downtown . I can take LRT or bus to the location where to pickup.

    September 25, 2013

  • Maria

    ALSO: the bowling alley has asked us to have our teams already picked out, so that they can plug us into the computer quickly and easily when we arrive and get us playing quickly. If no one has serious objections, I will do that, with a deliberate emphasis on mixing newer members with older members within each grouping.

    Michelle and George, would it be reasonable to assume that you two would rather be grouped together? Let me know!

    i have not played bowling before can i join this?

    September 24, 2013

  • Maria

    Problem: Turns out Bonnie Doon has league play until 9:30 on Friday nights, so we're looking at alternative locations. Our best bet seems to be Bronx Bowl in the Northwest. I apologize for the fact that this will make transportation more complicated, but we will definitely set up a carpool. Comment here if you need, or can give, a ride!

    September 21, 2013

    • Lindsay G.

      Sorry, just to clarify, the bowling is still on Friday, right?

      September 24, 2013

    • Maria

      Yes, Friday. Definitely Friday.

      September 24, 2013

  • Glenn J.

    Yes! Bowling is on Friday at Bronx bowl.

    Hi! I can't make it on Saturday, as I'll be at the Edmonton Expo:(

    September 23, 2013

    • Michelle E.

      I am not saying that at all. I was just hoping that she could come and clarifying the day. It's up to you though.

      September 23, 2013

    • Maria

      I mean to say *I* will be at Expo, and I know I am not the only one in the group who will be at Expo. :)

    Hi! I can't make it on Saturday, as I'll be at the Edmonton Expo:(

  • Mark

    Sorry... we've had a change of plans, and cannot come. I apologize for any inconvenience.

    September 22, 2013

  • Glenn J.

    Damn autocorrect. That should be construction zone, not constitution

    September 21, 2013

  • Glenn J.

    The main problem with Plaza Bowl is the fact that you have to hope for on street parking. Bronx bowl has a parking lot, and is not in the middle of a large constitution zone.

    September 21, 2013

  • Maria

    With today's new RSVPs, we may have to up it to three lanes. Unless we get more people, this will increase the individual cost to $15.50 per person. Any more yeses, and that price will go down again. Still okay?

    September 20, 2013

    • Matt

      Still ok to me.

      September 20, 2013

    • Richyl H.

      okay with me.

      September 21, 2013

  • George E.

    Sounds great.

    September 20, 2013

  • Maria

    Okay, folks, I'm looking at prices and I'm thinking 2 lanes for 2 hours should do us. Including shoe rental, that will come out to approximately $12 per person. Is that reasonable? Shall I book it?

    2 · September 20, 2013

  • Mark

    ...and Arwen at least could come in costume. :)

    September 16, 2013

  • Mark

    There may be me plus up to 4 guests...

    I am going to have to wait and see if I am working then or not.

      I have theatre tickets that night. Wish I had a time turner though!
